Staying at the E&O has to be one of life's great experiences. It starts with the airport greeting (I requested the limousine service) and cold drink on hotel arrival to the free shuttle to their sister hotel in the beach area. The view from the lovely room, and the conservatory where you have breakfast overlooking the Straits of Malacca, is wonderful. It is within walking distance of some of the main attractions, including the fabulous Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. The staff are excellent and so is the service - I requested an iron and it was delivered very promptly and excellent provision was made for our late check out. My only suggestion would be to ensure that if there is an interconnecting room, the door should be bigger (or provide a draught stopper) to reduce noise, provide 2 bedside lamps, and the A/C, which was very efficient, could be a little quieter. The pool and pool service are excellent. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and I hope we have the opportunity of returning some day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as 'The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient. ... more less
