Spent 2 nights in Bayview recently for the Penang Bridge run and had mixed impression of the hotel. Before going into specifics, for us Penang is such a great place to visit and we always go home with good memories which make us come back especially for the food. One down side though is that getting around can be an expensive affair as taxis do not use meters and charge flat rates but do try the public transport.
1. great location at the end of penang road, which is heaven for foodies and also close to the attractions.
2. check in was fairly quick and fuss free, though we did not get the room we wanted
3. all round friendly staff who catered to our needs and queries.
1. there was a certain musty smell to the hotel and it was prevalent even in the rooms. I guess it might be due to the age
2. during check in, we were treated with disdain by a senior staff when we asked to change to a room with double bed. He could have been polite and not act as if we were making his life difficult.
3. housekeeping looked overworked it always took them some time to 'meander' their way to our room, management might want to look into this.
we did not visit any of the restaurants and other facilities but overall we liked the place for the friendly staff and location. But it looks and smell its age and it's about time for renovation.
