“Worst hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Literally that's the worst hotel I have never been. Fresh urine stained toilet seat, yellow linens, vanity doesn't drain the water. They have already changed the room twice for me, feels like I need to sleep in my jeans tonight. I checked the original price was 500+, now it's on sale. I got the price for RM 140. Now i totally understand. I don't think it's worth even RM 40.

Stayed in the Family Suite. The room was spacious and very big. It was really comfortable.
The basement car park to the ground floor (reception area) had only stairs. So you have to carry your bags up the stairs. Parking is limited at the carpark and if you are unlucky to hit a conference going on, then you have to park outside in the housing area.
Food at the restaurant was good for the pricing. A lot of variety. However, there was one meal where the white rice was undercooked.
Lift went blackout while we were inside, making it a scary situation as it was pitch darkness. Luckily, it only happened once during my 3 days stay.
Location is very good as there is a food court (Viva) just outside the hotel, making it very convenient to sample the local food.

stayed in this hotel for 1 night in november.other than location which is near the beach, the facilities suck.The staff at the check in counter wore no smiles.No wifi available, pool is dirty.The room is dimly lit, watermarks on the wall, iron mark on the table.The carpet has dubious looking dark spots.Housekeeping service is practically non existent, called for hairdryer twice in an hour but no one came at all. Bed is lumpy and dismal selection of tv channels

Not worth the advertised price at all.I'd rather stay in town and travel

Reserve a Dlx room through Agoda last minute deals. Check-in process is prompt,lift encounter blackout during our first ride,no emergency light. The service personnel also share the same lifts,sad..Room is bright and spacious, they did not mop the floor or change our sheets overnight, only towel and bathroom amenities are replaced. The bed is too soft,"spring" effect is gone. The bathroom surprised us with few defects: stopper in the basin really "stopped"the water flow, so we remove it instead;the shower head can't be adjusted to a certain height due to the holder does not lock it well, then the water tap almost fell on my feet during shower! The bathroom wooden door will swing freely if you don't shut it with a 'BANG"
Location is convenient for short holiday,bus station is about 5min away,food is available from the chinese food court or Malay food stall opposite the main road.
Room overlooking the Chinese Swimming Club has a magnificent sea view as well. The hotel pool is not bad,especially for family with children.

Room Tip: Higher floors,we had 1008- great view & spacious

Booked two twin rooms and a double room for a family stay-cation. While the rooms are cheap (USD35 per twin room, USD46 per double room with breakfast), the inconvenience makes you wish you pay more.

1. Air conditioner didn't work for one of the rooms. TV screen was static. Busted lamp in the other room. Leaking toilet tank in the same room. Had the maintenance personnel in those rooms for quite a while, which ruined the trip a little.

2. Food is substandard. Even though it is a Muslim-run establishment, I don't mind having halal food but the variety is poor and the quality is below average. Fortunately Penang is renowed for great hawker fare island-wide outside of the hotel.

3. The access of beach made everything else worthwhile :) The pool is very small though but the beach is good enough.

4. Staff was actually very friendly and helpful. Shame that the hotel conditions were too bad but they were trying hard to help us with the issues in the rooms.

5. Wifi was provided for free (part of the promotion), decent connection. Car parking available at the basement.

6. There is a food centre right opposite with local fare and seafood :) Helps a lot for the sad meals in the hotel. Location is pretty close to Gurney Drive down the road and Batu Ferringhi up the road.

So, there you go. It is still ok but you cannot have high expectations.

Room Tip: Only double rooms have sea view. All the other single and twin rooms have side view.
