We stayed at Seven Terraces for 5 nights, a family of four, with 2 teenagers.
We had the Stewart Apartment, which worked really well. It consists of a very large room with king sized four-poster bed, with a second long room off it, down three steps, and separated by a sheer curtain. The kids space has two single four-poster beds. So it is not really a separate room, but effectively provided the kids with their own space. There was a tv in both adult and kids area. Also in the adult's area was a large incredibly ornate daybed, apparently an "opium bed". I chose this suite because it didn't have a staircase to negotiate.
The decoration and furnishing of our rooms, and of the whole hotel, is just divine. We were surrounded by beautiful Chinese furniture and antiques in every area of the hotel. The central courtyard and main foyer areas are large and stunningly beautiful.
Breakfast is served in an open room, where you choose from a lovely menu and they cook your request to order. And if one choice doesn't fill you up (eg teenage son), you can order a second meal.
Service in reception, breakfast room and restaurant is outstanding, warm and friendly (thank you especially Dilip, Yunn, Massi). We ate in the beautiful Kebaya restaurant on our last night, and wished we had gone there earlier. Wonderful food, lovely service, and in particular, a most delightful pianist, who really added to my enjoyment of the evening.
The pool was lovely, not huge, but adequate, and we nearly always had it to ourselves.
We would go back to Penang just to stay at Seven Terraces again.
