We stayed at the Penview Hotel for one night in October 2011. We were there for my sister-in-law's wedding reception, which went smoothly once it began.
Regarding the room, it was very nice and spacious, up on the 6th floor, comfortable beds, flatscreen TV, although we didn't have a phone in our particular room, which I found very inconvenient. Our friends on the 2nd floor found 2 cockroaches in their room.
Unfortunately we lost a jewellery box on the morning of our departure while we were at breakfast. We searched the entire room for it but it was nowhere to be found. When we questioned the Front Desk, they were very casual in their response, said the housekeepers couldn't find it, and they'll call us if it turns up. I was very disappointed with this poor service and lack of commitment to their guests.
You will have to take great care of your valuables if you stay at this hotel.
