We recently spent 3 days at the Holiday Inn Resort Penang. The hotel is currently undergoing a much needed renovation but that is not stopping the hotel leadership and staff from delivering an excellent quality stay. Reception was very attentive and helpful and the general manager Dominic was conspicuously present and creating a positive environment for guests and staff alike.... More

We stayed 5 nights at Holiday Inn for a business planning retreat, and I had a great time there. Apart from the complementary breakfasts, there was no need to eat in because all sorts of great local food were within walking distance or a short taxi ride away. The room was clean and of generous proportions, gym was good and... More

The hotel and the facilities are quite nice. The only remark I could have is that the swimming pool needs frequent cleaning as well as the area around it. Would definitely come here again. Location is also super good, a lot of restaurants in walking distance. Wifi is not super fast but connection is available all over the resort.

Loved everything about this hotel but hats off to the staff who coped with the massive crowd so well, they were so patient and caring. Free transport to the city, which was very helpful. Such a family friendly hotel, my kids had a great time and so many activities for adults as well. Keep up the good work!!!
