First a disclosure that we asked for a sea view in advance which we didn't get but were upgraded to a very spacious executive suite. So the review is coloured by that.
That said, it was a great hotel in a good spot. We caught the bus into town each day, which is a bit of a long trek, but very economical if you have the rapid penang passport ticket.
Lovely pool at the end of a hot day, and poolside drink service if desired. We loved the local food part of the breakfast buffet.
Overall, reasonably pricey, but a great stay.
