Having read other TripAdvisor reviews indicating a dated hotel I was expecting something a little less than what I actually experienced. I couldn't fault my third floor room which was clean and spacious. Large comfy king size bed. Cool aircon. Large balcony. A separate large shower in addition to a bathroom with over bath shower. Pool area was good. Only... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during the peak holiday season in Penang when the downtown hotels were mostly booked solid. It is quite far up along the beach resort strip in Teluk Bahang, a non-walkable distance away from the main strip at Batu Ferringhi where most of the 'action' is. However, it has its own smattering of... More

We stayed in a deluxe room on level 3 which was generous in size but requires major renovation. The resort maybe 4 stars overall, but the room we stayed in was more like 3 stars at best. Had I known the standard of the room I would have booked a better room. Also this property is the last one in... More

Spent 5 nights with a free upgrade to a superior room plus late checkout. We had a hill view which was very pleasant and avoided hot afternoon sun. Grounds were expansive with a well tended tropical garden and large pool area. Gymnasium was well equipped and the staff were very helpful and friendly. A free one way shuttle to the... More

Stayed here with my wife a while ago. Hotel is excellent with friendly staff. its right on the beach, although the beach is not as attractive as the hotel grounds. There are jelly fish in the sea too! At night, there is a street market down the road from the hotel, say 500m. It sells all sorts including not so... More

Dear andy d, Regrettably where we are located along a busy shipping route, the sea water quality along Batu Ferringhi in general has the unpredictable presence of jelly fish. Hence, we compensate this situation with a hygienic and safe swimming pool for our guests. I am glad our friendly staff have served you well and that overall the hotel is... More

After reading some negative reviews I was apprehensive staying here for 5 nights after reading some of the reviews. Nevertheless I cancelled a booking at the neighbouring Hard Rock and booked in saving $900AUD in the process!!
