I stayed here 10 years ago in a junior suite and felt like a King with it’s impressive views, separate lounge with settees, 2 toilets, desk, Jacuzzi bath in the double sink bathroom with separate shower.
I was so much looking forward to coming back for a 3 night stay with my partner to experience what was one of the nicest Hotels I had ever stayed in, but sadly this in not the case now for this tired and worn beautiful Hotel.
The location is by the sea (there is no beach here) approx between the centre of Georgetown and Gurney Plaza shopping mall. There is fairly large food hawker centre 2 minutes walk by the waters edge and if you feel up to the 20-minute walk to Gurney Plaza shopping mall you will pass many other eating-places. We took taxis into Old Town (10 RM), as it seemed to far to walk.
The rooms are well equipped with safe, iron, hairdryer, complimentary water, fridge, kettle, free wifi, air con, bed & lounge TV, complimentary toiletries etc. There is a 9th floor pool with great views and a spa area offering massages etc
Breakfast has plenty of choice, but lacked freshness. Items looked limp and pastries & bread were from the day before.
Rates were very reasonable and about the same as what I paid 10 years ago, but sadly this now shows in wear and tear.
Staff were great and made us feel most welcome. Shame the owners won’t spend the money to match this welcome. So say, they are refurbishing a floor at a time, but I get the impression it’s on a shoe string budget.
