The hotel is in a decent location if you need to be on the mainland. There's a mall close by, lots of restaurants across the road and it's not too far a drive to the bridge to Penang Island. But if you want to explore to island, stay on the island instead.
The hotel is clean but definitely in need of refurbishment. The design and decor is pretty outdated and the bathroom needs a serious scrubbing to get rid of the mould. At least the water pressure is decent.
The staff is pleasant, although we ended up carrying our own bags upon check out as the porter didn't show up! There's a lot of parking available so there's no problems there either.
And honestly, if you need to be in this area, this would probably be the hotel to stay at as I have no idea if there's any other hotel in this area.
