I had stayed at the old wing of the E&O over a decade ago and was pleasantly surprised that the newly opened Victory Annexe wing retains the charm of the old while offering fantastic ocean views. We asked for a room with a view of the sea, and were told that every room faced the ocean! Hotel designer was obviously generous and creative in use of space. Quality of breakfast was excellent, especially in its authenticity of local dishes like roti canai, nasi lemak and kuay teow. Those who want a continental breakfast in a quieter environs can opt for the lounge on the 6F, which also serves free happy hour drinks.
