“Excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Very clean, lovely big rooms, exceptional staff that really went the extra mile and central location. I would highly recommend this hotel. Close to shopping mall and hawker market. Nice central communal area.

Couldn't speak highly enough of our stay at Noordin Mews. From arrival to departure, no task was too much for the staff, they responded to every request with a smile and did whatever they could to make our stay all the more enjoyable (we asked for everything from directions & buses to ferry tickets and dinner bookings). Its a lovely setting, great pool, awesome breakfast and the rooms are chic yet simple, we loved the 1950's Chinese decor. The hotel is a short walk from the main bus terminal, which made it really easy to get to Kek Lok Si Temple and Batu Ferringhi for day trips and its an easy stroll to Little India and Chinatown. There is also a small hawker food market in the next street which served great local food.

A big thank you to Baby for going out of her way to send back a picture we left in a taxi... just an example of how lovely the staff were! Would definitely return :)

The service is top notch for a B&B. Welcome drink and fresh fruits, luggage is taken to your room. Anything else? A welcoming smile, always! We booked 2 rooms here, E and K: both were spacious recently refurbished and nicely decorated. A special ++ for the cute bathroom. What makes it a 5 stars? The delicate attention to details, the peaceful and quiet atmosphere of the place, the quality of the service and the delicious breakfast taken in the patio! One more thing, they have car park available right in front, Wifi is free. The only slight minor point - if you don't have a car - is that you are about 15 mins walk from the heart of Georgetown and the main action. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!!

We stayed here for 5 nights in an upstairs mews room, and the service was 6-star, always accompanied by lovely smiles from everyone.

The downstairs area was smaller than it appeared to be on the website, but our room was spacious and comfortable plus a very good-size bathroom. Must add that the whole property was well-maintained and spotlessly clean.

The breakfast offered a few choices, but it was all good food nicely served, and the coffee was fresh and hot (didn't have the tea).

The only downside was that the music from the breakfast area was sometimes rather loud and monotonous. We didn't really like the street, but we got used to it and we did feel safe enough both daytime and evening.

A stay at Noordin Mews is a different and interesting experience which we would recommend.

Checkin was prompt and we received a chilled towel. Our bags were taken to our room. A welcome drink tray with fruit plate arrived minutes after we walked no our rooms. The staff were cheerful and eager to help, especially at breakfast.

The rooms were fun with period memorabilia, but we saw that in some other rooms, the bed is nested and may be challenging to roll out.

Breakfast is a delightful choice of local (Nasi lemak) muesli, French toast or scrambled eggs with toast. The coffee is strong and fresh ground, but the juice tasted fake.

We really thought the hotel was very fun, but it is pricier, and a outside of the Georgetown heritage proper and even beyond the buffer zone. the decor and choices were eye candy. The staff seemed eager to help.

We would love to see a ventilator in the bathroom and deadbolts on the door that have been better oiled. They clattered loudly every time you opened and closed them. Blocking the padlock was also a bit challenging at night because it was very dark.

Perhaps a courtesy ride into the heart of Georgetown would reduce the challenge of crossing the really busy streets that need to be crossed on the walk towards Little India.

Room Tip: Ask for directions. The sign is tiny and we drove by twice before locatng it with help.
