“spacious room with jacuzzi at your own hotel room.”
Reviewed January 27, 2010

Location wise, not idea. Quite a distance to nearest food kiosk. To go gurney shopping mall by foot will take you around half an hour. If you are looking for a get away holiday, spending quality time with your partner with a jacuzzi to pamper yourself. Avoid crowds, Its actually quite decent for the price for the room with own jacuzzi.

The rooms were huge! Seaview suites room for a bargain price of MYR 250 at a convenient location - nothing much you can ask for!

Gurney drive is just a stone's throw away.

Only weird thing is that the lower floors are not accessible and there are rumours that this hotel is haunted. But I did not experience any horrific incident and am very pleased with the hotel.

I am very satisfied with the rooms. They are very spacious and their big bathroom is equipped with jaccuzi bathtub. Great sea view from our room. The only disappointment is the delay we encounter during check in. The location is average. Nearest convenient store we found is also quite a distant away. The hotel is overall good

A reasonable place to stay. If you can book at a discount (my corporate rate was about US$65 a night), then the value becomes attractive. The hotel and suites do have a tired look and feel. My suite had a huge bathroom with a shower and a bathtub, and a separate small bathroom for guests. I stayed on the 31st floor with an impressive view of the polluted sea. Breakfast was good, and front desk service at check-in and check-out was impeccable. All in all, this is a good lodging option on Gurney, but see if you can book G Hotel instead.

Stayed at this hotel as I was convinced by its website that it would be a good choice. The connecting door facing the hotel corridor to the suite rooms was jammed. Had to be left open. Only attended to the next morning. The standing light was missing & one other light had fused. The toilet bowl made gurgling sounds throughout the night & water spilled out so the cover had to be put down. Breakfast was pathetic! Service was even worse! Had dinner at the hotel coffee house & the banana leaf the food was served on reeked of urine! Requested to speak to someone in authority but was given all sorts of excuse. Finally, after listing down a string of complaints, one was accorded a discount only after requesting for it. Was told matter would be investigated but never heard from the management until an e-mail was written to them. Gave politically correct answers while skirting the issue all the time. Totally disappointed with my stay indeed!

Paid 253 ringgit for a junior suite, was on the 30th floor facing seaview. We stayed and checked personall several other hotels and you can't get anything at this price that Northam offers. Some hotels in Georgetown charges the same price but the room and hotel are nothing like it. Our suite had a huge toilet with jacuzzi to fit 2, 2 sinks and 2 wardrobes. The bed is 2 queen bed joined together. There is a living, dining, study and entryway. The service is not great though, we had problems with the aircon and had to repeatedly ask that it is seen to. The spa from the hotel is very cheap and the spa rooms are amazing. The location at Gurney is 10mins to central Georgetown but you can walk too about 15-20mins. Along Gurney, the stretch of eatery is amazing and so aceesible by walking from the hotel. Its only 10mins walk and we tried the teochew restaurant, Song River coffeeshop that has Bah kut teh, hokkien mee, chicken wings, oyster omelette, and more. Further along after Gurney Plaza is the exciting night food market, we went crazy, too much to taste for! Our stay for 5 days was struck with rain so fortunately, the best mall in Penang; Gurney PLaza is very accessible for us. Its a very nice mall with alfrescoe to get that coffee fix.

We checked in on 23rd and now currently staying at Northam All Suite for two nights. I love the spacious of the suite come with a living area and a huge jucuzzi bath tub. it also come with free internet acess.Our room is 34th level facing the sea. Opposite the hotel is a local food centre. less than 10 mins taxi to gurney plaza and you must try out the hawker stall sell the famous penang asam laska and oyster..We took a taxi to upper penang road to check out the pubs. one of the pub with live band and great music. Taxi fare is expensive here. most of them charged $12RM for less than 10 mins ride. This hotel offer cheap spa massage for only RM90 for 50 mins. Overall we love this hotel.
