First time in Penang on 9 March 2012. As I was traveling with 2 young kids and 1 elderly, the 2 bedrooms suite was great for family bonding. Aircon was cold enough so no worry when the sun shines in the morning. We loves the seaviews in our bedrooms and the big jacuzzi (though it's a bit noisy). The safe box and kettle was out of order but we managed to put our stuff in the lobby safe box and got a new kettle soon. Abit of issue when checking in as they couldn't find our reservation so please do print the confirmation email that shows the reservation dept's staff name. Check out was fast and reception staff was very friendly. Great hotel for family with 5-10 traveling together.

Had check-in several times at this hotel..
First was mid 2005 (family), second was Jan 2010 (family) and recently was in Sep 2011 (friend)..

Check in and check out is bit slow..
Anyway; the hotel has large waiting lobby..

Room is spacious..
Large toilet with shower..
Decor/setup is kind of dated and old..
Do need re-furbishment..

Swimming pool is ok..
Kind of kewl with beach style sandy setup..

Food at coffee house has wide variety and tasted not bad..
Many F&B outlet within the hotel premises: no issue with food..
Gourney mall is just 15 mins walking..

The only strange thing happen: may heard funny noise in room or toilet (if you know what i mean)..

Stayed: September 2011, traveled with friends

We stayed at this hotel a few years ago and this time we came back because of its location. It is near to the places we wanted to go, some restaurants in the vicinity and nearer to the town than hotels at the beach. I am pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome at the reception, from the bellman to the receptionists. Everyone had a smile on his/her face. We were greeted with "Gong Xi Fa Cai" and "Happy New Year".

As the hotel was running full, we could not get our rooms on non-smoking floor so we were given rooms on smoking floor, but the rooms were ok for us.

Our rooms were actually a 2-bedroom suite with a connecting studio suite. I had thought that it would be looking old and tired but I was happy to find the rooms quite ok, not too worn out. Furnitures were reasonably clean, no stain were found on sofas, and tables were clean.

Our 2-bedroom suite came with a small pantry room, with a standing fridge, some cutleries and plates and bowls in the cupboard and a sink.

There is a big bathroom in the master bedroom, jacuzzi, shower cubicle, and walk-in closet. The view in the bathroom, looking out through a big window at the jacuzzi, was fantastic, I could see the whole Gurney Drive, and the sea out in front.

King size bed in the master bedroom, and twin beds in the second bedroom. Sofas and coffee table in the living room, and a dining area with table and 4 chairs.

In the second bathroom, there was a shower cubicle, but the sliding glass door was not there so when someone showered the floor became wet and slippery. The other drawback was that the tv in the living area was a small one.

The studio suite is relatively clean, except for the bedsheets, a bit of stain. There were twin beds in the studio. A small dining area with a table and 2 chairs, and living area with sofa and coffee table. The tv is also a small one. The big floor-to-ceiling window span almost the entire length of the studio, making the room bright and sunny, otherwise the curtains was good enough to give privacy if needed. The bathroom was also the walk-in closet, there was a jacuzzi tub and separate shower cubicle, this one with door. There was a window between the bathroom and bedroom area, with blinds for privacy. But there was a big ventilation hole on top of the window, so we could pretty much hear everything that went on in the toilet/bathroom if we were on the bed.

There were 2 swimming pools at the hotel, one with slides for the kids and the other was the standard pool. We did not use the other facilities.

Overall, the stay was pleasant and I particular like the friendliness of the staff.

Room Tip: If possible get the 2 bedroom suites, they face the sea, fantastic view from the bathroom and the second bedroom.

The parking is terrible too limited parking bay at basement and you have to drive to further to get a parking with only a level offering lift link back to hotel. By if you are driving I don't see any reason why this is a prime location after all Penang is a small place. It's suite are pretty small for a Malaysian standard suite
