Stayed at the G for 7 nights, and loved every single night of our stay. The hotel was very clean, and the staff were amazing. We arrived early and could not get into our room, but the staff kept us informed of what was going on and at the earliest time our room was ready.
Breakfast was great, with a wide range of hot and cold foods, a dedicated eggs chef and waffle chef also. Did not eat at the hotel for lunch or dinner. The chicken and Rice shop on the btoom level at the Gurney Plaza,(right next door) is great for lunch, big meal for a couple of australian dollars. There are night food stalls just a couple of minutes up the road, all cheap and very good food. WE did not get sick once from eating at these places.
If you want brand shopping, the Gurney plaza is the best place in town. The night markets at Bata Fenguie is allright, not much variety, and some of the stall owners will not barter on their prices.
It is about one hour walk to the centre of Geroge Town from the G, a good walk, we did it a couple of times. There is a perfume shop in Geroge Town, on Chulia Street, opposite the fire station, oil perfume at great prices. Just take the brand you like and they make it up while you sit there. It smells great.
The G hotel has a great pool area, one of the best I have statyed at, huge pool, and lots of beds to lay in the sun. The gym is so huge, and has very good equipment and personnel on site to help with your work out.
The rooms are huge, and the free mini bar was great also. We are not smokers, so ask for a non smoking room, as we found out when getting off at the wrong floor, and it was a smoking level, the smoking smell was over the top.
The staff were great, if you be nice to them they will do anything for you. We obersved some guets being quite rude, and you could see that the staff reacted the same way.
Overall, a great place to stay, Penang hill was great, snake temple good, the shopping was alright.
