All rooms have a sea view ! The room balcony is a great place to sit & relax with a wonderful sea view. The hotel rooms are very spacious with a spacious toilet. All this,and the sumptious breakfast buffet, at very reasonable rates.Even though the hotel is located on the very busy road between Gurney Drive & Batu Ferringhi,it is... More

A comfortable hotel but it is quite dated and the decor and rooms reflect that. Its nicely located in the quiet neighbourhood of Tanjong Bungah between busy Gurney Drive and Batu Ferringhi. The hotel offers ala carte and buffet choices but we chose to eat at the many eateries close to the hotel.

Room itself meets very basic needs for overnight rest, but if you would like to spend time chilling out in a nice and cosy hotel setting, this is probably not the best choice. Pricing was very affordable though, and they had good views plus private beach area.

Stayed here for two weeks. We had a large terrace room, overlooking the beach which was spacious and quiet. The beds were big and firm, which suited us. The hotel is getting a bit tired and some areas are a bit worn but the location was great - between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi - easy to reach both locations by... More

Overall room was ok. As usual, hotel's balcony is also dusty...can't it be housekeep as well? Near beach and have direct access to it. The only comment I have is the clothes one can wear into the pool. I know in Malaysia they are allowed to wear long pants and shirt due to religion but this particular guy wore his... More

The hotel is very old. Staff are friendly but not so 'pro-active'. Remembered I was carrying few very heavy luggage out from the car park heading to the reception (please note that there is no lift from the basement car park to hotel, you need to walk and use staircse), the concierge was sitting at a corder and chit-chatting, when...

I found the place not value for money however most of the hotels on Penang looked even more expensive. I would rate it between 2 and 3 dots on tripadvisor. Staff is... More

Hotel that needs renovation and better housekeeping. Also in need of more professional management. people at the front lobby are super friendly and truly helpful, but management lacks in professionalism when dealing with a complaint and denies responsibility (Usual thing in Malaysia). Environment is not nice because of a lot of construction going on around the building. beach is disgusting.... More

The hotel definitely doesn't look as grand and nice as the Copthornes in other countries, but that does not affect the customer service. Staff were very polite and professional, and always greeted us with a smile and were patient with our enquiries. That was pretty much the highlight of the stay. The room: it is generally clean...but age will definitely... More
