My daughter and I had a suite overlooking the pool area and the sea, with large bedroom, smaller but adequate lounge and large bathroom with double sinks, etc. Biggest accolade goes to the staff, who were welcoming, friendly and could not do enough to please. Breakfast so abundant with everything you could wish for - and if they didn't have it on show, such as fresh mango one day, they went to get it for you. Loved our stay, hope to return one day to Penang, and this will be the place we will make our home. Great location, in walking distance of all major sights in Georgetown, and the shuttle to the beach hotel (Lone Pines) at Batu was a bonus (this was also a great place to go for the day, nice poolside lunch, stay for the night market).
