We spent 3N/4D during our visit to Penang here . The room was neat and clean and the facilities were nice . The room had a sea view which was breathtaking . The complimentary breakfast was good . You need to walk a bit to the 2 big Gurney shopping malls .

Beautiful hotel, staffed by the best people that you could wish for, without exception. Location is on the esplanade, with views across the bay. Just down from the best shopping in Georgetown, on Gurney Drive. Comfortable and well equipped rooms, décor through out is as you would expect of the class of hotel, impeccable. But for us what attracts us... More

I've being in this hotel several times attending local customers. Great place to do bussiness, all facilities are fine, location is very convenient and food is deliciuos. Highly recommended. Shuttle goes everymorning to industrial zone so work can be done easily. Customer service is great, you'll feel like being with friend in the other side of the world.

We had a lovely stay at the Evergreen Laurel. Our room was comfortable and clean. There were complimentary drinks in the fridge and some apples in a bowl and they were replenished each day which was a really nice touch. The housekeeping staff were friendly and we were very happy with the service each day. The only issue was that... More
