I want to first say that I have never been moved (positively or negatively) to write a review on Trip Advisor, but our wonderful stay at Seven Terraces moved me to do so. Had there been a rating of "six stars," I would have given this!
If the impeccable Peranukan reproductions in the architecture and furnishings don't impress you, the service, definitely will. Manager, Ewan, was extremely attentive to all guests, remembering personal preferences and making sure his team was responding adequately to every need and whim. The meal staff was very accommodating to food preferences, and our Sri Lankan bartender (who has worked with the owner for over 10 years!) even remembered our favorite wine choice! Also, you can always rely on Faisal at the front desk to make a delicious dinner recommendation, provide shopping advice, or simply have an umbrella ready to take out on a rainy day. We have been to other highly-rated boutique and large hotels/ and resorts around the world and this one definitely ranks at the the top.
There are really only two main hotels in town as far as we're concerned: The Eastern and Oriental - which is a large, colonial, sterile hotel on the water and the Seven Terraces which is a small, Peranukan, cozy, beautiful sanctuary, perfectly situated in the middle of Georgetown. Go to the E&O for high tea, but always come back at night to the Seven Terraces and you will truly enjoy your experience in Penang!
