I'm a travel agent from Australia and recently stayed at the Hard Rock in Penang. Our stay was fantastic! From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel so welcome. We stayed in the recently renovated Deluxe Ocean View room which was really nice. I also had the chance to have a look at all the other room types... More

Branding is everything. The hotel itself has plenty of things to do. Quick note is that getting there is quite far from city centre. Check in time took FOREVER!! I think almost 2 hours coz the rooms were not ready! The beach there was crap! But the indoor swimming pools and water slide are nice to hang around. The rooms... More

Having eaten in a few of these over the years, they all tend to be of a similar standard. This one is no exception. A little on the small side but none the less a very nice Hard Rock Cafe. The food is of a good standard and well worth the price you pay. Do not expect fine dining ,... More

Hotel: 1) The hotel is at the pricey side, to be expected as it is situated at Batu Ferringhi and carrying the Hard Rock branding. 2) The hotel atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing with plenty of activities catering adults to kids, pool area was huge (enjoy the pool dipping time and drinks at the pool bar). There is also Rock... More
