My partner and I stayed for 2 nights in December 2006 - rooms are beautiful and huge with luxurious bath and shower. Main restaurant serves excellent modern european cuisine, really delicious, althought the staff are far too attentive - they literally watch you eating your bread roll, and the minute you take the last bite, they rush over to offer more bread - they mean well but it is a little unnerving when you know you are so obviously being observed!!
I really loved the colonial style of this hotel and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Penang to stay at this hotel - good value too.

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
