we recently spent 3 nights here in a standard room.excellent choice as it turned out.the room was clean and spacious overlooking the sea (mud flats).furnishings were ok as was the bathroom with free mini bar (soft drink & a kit kat) that is replenished every day.lobby area is very spacious and stylish.plenty of seating so a good place to just sit and relax.a more than acceptable breakfast with a fairly good variety.freshly squeezed juices.air con worked well & bed was comfortable.all staff were great and helpful,with check in & out very quick with free home made ice-cream on arrival.newspaper on door every morning.
free wi-fi but doesn't work too well in the room so found we had to go down to lobby for good connection which was not so bad as lobby is a nice area to chill out.pool area is very good, though the pool itself is great it could be deeper as is only 1.2m deep only throughout with no deeper end.a minor thing only.
next door is the biggest shopping mall in penang so can be a busy road at front,but no noise once in room.gurney hawker centre up the road, ok but the long beach centre in batu ferringhi much better imo.to get to batu ferringhi was a rm30 taxi ride with rm15 to get to downtown georgetown.the hotel has restaurants and a night club.
overall a great location and would recommend this hotel,though a little more expensive than most in georgetown we thought it was worth it.a great stay,wish we could of stayed longer.
