We just returned from a weekend stay at Seven Terraces and found it very difficult to leave. Our loft room was absolutely gorgeous, filled with unique Peranakan antiques,furnishings and original architectural features. The staff were warm, friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and seemed to appear at just the right moment, delivering ice water to you by the pool, turning on the fans, opening doors, all with a gracious smile. The food in the restaurant, Kebaya, was delicious and plentiful. We chose to head out for other breakfast options, so can't comment there. Our suite overlooked the laneway, and this provided some very interesting views into life on the streets of Georgetown. The suites opposite, overlooking the pool, would probably be a quieter option for light sleepers, however we didn't find the distant noise of the occasional motorbike a problem. Loved the bathroom, with the shower rose directly over the middle of the room, and towels and robes were thick and fluffy. Beds and pillows were very comfy, and turndown service extended to opening and closing of the doors and shutters to allow for light/cooling. Manager Ewan was extremely helpful with all our needs,and the delightful MaeLee in the shop went above and beyond in assisting us with purchasing and wrapping goods.
I disagree with previous reviewers statements about limited bathroom amenities. My partner and I had plenty, and they were replenished daily.
I cannot speak highly enough of this gorgeous establishment, and wish I could have stayed much longer. It is an oasis of calm and tranquility in the middle of bustling Georgetown, doesn't have the stuffy feeling of some 5 star hotels, and the attention to detail and welcoming personal service, without trying too hard, makes it feel like you're staying with friends. I'll be recommending this place for many years to come. Do yourself a favour, you won't regret it for a second.
