Location is simply superb, but NYE in the year 1993 was a night to remember for a huge thunderstorm that blocked out everything further than 10 metres away and we certainly didn't see the usual fireworks display happening in Georgetown below. Not the fault of the Hotel by any means. So, with another group also in attendance, Japanese management hierarchy... More

We had stayed here a few years ago and liked the view, quiet atmosphere and the novelty of such an awful hotel. So we booked for two nights but the novelty had worn off and the experience was not a good idea at all. First off is the walk from the train . It's up hill most of the way... More

Rather run down. As an old penangite, it was painful to visit this spot. What really put me off was the 5-6 peacocks in rather small cages, which was simply cruel. If enough of us comment on this, it may put some pressure on the management to do something. The staff are rather 'simple'. Food is v poor. Had inchi... More

We simply asked if we would be allowed to sit on the veranda for a while & were permitted. The verandah has stunning views of Penang below & allows you to see the old Crag Hotel (neglected since the Second World War but now getting some love as a location of the series "Indian Summers") perched on a nearby hilltop....

As there is little to do at the top of Penang Hill, I suppose the hotel has a captive audience for its Ginger Gardens, Aviary and Panorama Terrace. Starting with the view, it is spectacular, but little different from that you can get for free elsewhere. The aviary has lots of pigeons in cages, as well as several peacocks. But... More

This is a lovely colonial era property surrounded by lush nature and stunning views. To be fair, it is not a glitzy resort. It is a quiet humble property offering cool breezes, a relaxed ‘bygone era’ atmosphere, and a closer look at flora and fauna to those that want to take advantage of it. We were referred to the property... More

Came here for lunch while visiting Penang Hill. As the previous poster has said it's not a 5 star establishment so you need to accept it for what it is and that it has fantastic views and that you can sit quietly and have a nice snack whilst taking in all the charm. The fact that the place is over... More

If your expecting 5star, this is not for you, so don't go here and then give crap reviews, that would be very unfair!!! It is an old hotel, offering only 11 rooms, BUT...... You will love it, no air conditioning needed as you are above the heat on the streets. The dining area on the north side boasts amazing views... More

We stopped off for a meal in the only hotel on Penang Hill, thinking it would be quieter and possibly better than the hilltop restaurant. How wrong we were. This hotel is an opportunity wasted. The views are, without a doubt, stunning. The food? Not so much. We ordered two different chicken dishes and still have no idea what was... More

Plus side- great views. Negatives- almost feel sorry for the old hotel. Looks very run down and could do with a lot of tlc. Food and drink - overpriced. Service at the end of the meal was awful- just finished my meal and still drinking when the waiter came over and plopped the bill in front of me. I had... More
