After reading all the reviews we were looking forward to the EO. We stayed six nights at the Victory Annexe. The room and the bathroom were large and the sea-view was just magnificent. It's very close to the historic area of Georgetown. Service was excellent and Internet worked well. We very much liked the afternoon free buffet between 5 and 7 pm. The EO offers a free shuttle service to Batu Ferringhi (30 minutes drive) where we spent a great day at the beach in the Lone Pine Hotel (it belongs to the EO). Unfortunately, we were woken up almost every night as our stupid neighbors slammed the heavy door always loudly.
