We concluded a very enjoyable holiday in Malaysia with a 5 day stay at the Eastern and Oriental. This is a grand old elegant hotel that is excellently maintained. We stayed in the old wing and the suites with a sitting room are well proportioned, looking out over the sea. Georgetown is full of interesting things to see and delicious things to eat and we settled into a routine of going out early in the morning, sight-seeing and having lunch at a local place, returning to the hotel in the afternoon to lounge around the pool. There is the original pool at sea level, with a spectacular new pool and bar in the new wing. The service at this hotel perfectly matched the high level of accomodation. We intend to return to the E&O, this time with a group of friends.

- 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
