A cosy warmth spreads through this small heritage house, from the moment you check in with the friendly reception to the woody furniture and homely atmosphere that pervades within the compound.
Located in the heart of Georgetown, it was easy to walk almost anywhere and good food not too far away with plenty of choices.
Our room on the 2nd floor was comfortable (not 5* but we were not expecting it for the price), and decorated with authentic pieces and warm tones to make it feel homely. The courtyard was nicely decorated and the dining area offers a sumptous breakfast with local and continental choices. It is not a buffet spread but adequate to suit most appetites.
For a local flavour and a touch of Penang, this is a value for money accomodation that is accessible and friendly.
