I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world, and this is my new favourite. The service was exquisite and the hotel itself was stunning. My room overlooked the sea and had a large living room, gorgeous bedroom and huge, breathtaking bathroom. I usually find something to complain about wherever I stay, but every detail from the toiletries to the bath robes, to having local Batik sarongs provided was wonderful. You even have a 'butler bell' in your room, which when pressed elicits a phone call from a butler, who will try and help you in anything you need. I only needed a jug of skimmed milk, but it was there within 5 mins, cold and not charged for! The whole hotel was old fashioned, service orientated, super clean and so charming. I thought that the food in the restaurant both for supper and for breakfast was very well done and really delicious, with a huge range of options to chose from. Highlights of the stay were the cold scented towels and fruit juice on arrival and drinking G&Ts by the pool on the very comfy sun loungers!
- 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
