Hotel is situated a little way from the heritage centre of Georgetown but buses pass the door.
The building is different from standard hotels in that it was accommodation for British officers during the colonial era. There is a lovely pool to cool off in after a day's sight seeing. Breakfast tries to cater for all nationalities and we were happy with cereal and toast.
In all, good value for money but nothing fancy.
There is a Hawk car hire desk in the lobby, and we negotiated a great one way car hire deal with them on to Malacca via the Cameron highlands which was certainly more convenient than the bus.
