Stayed a week in late december 2012 and we've enjoyed this hotel.
The situation is right by the beach in Batu Ferringhi so it can't be beaten. The beach itself is nice but not the best beach in South East Asia. We didn't swim into the sea because of the Jellyfish which could be a little itchy.
Our room was a Deluxe corner king room on the top level (3rd floor) and was facing the pool and the sea. Very good sized room, great balcony with outdoor bath on it (very nice), large bathroom. But my complains go for the bed which was too hard for me. The wifi signal in the room wasn't good and low.
Another complain is the noise from outside as it was missing a window and we didn't understood why.
Hotel building is not too big (around 110 rooms), has a colonial architecure and atmosphere. Lots of work has been done here I think to keep this place a little "out of time".
Staff was very nice and kind and attentive to details. At the breakfast, by the pool, at the front desk and the clerk, as well in the japanese restaurant (where we had 1 dinner offered by the way).
Hotel management does care about the clients and passed by to greet us.
Breakfast was good not great and had plenty of choice but missing some stuff like honey, nutella (chocolate paste), sushi (my wife like them in Asia in the morning, I don't). Omelettes were excellent.
But it was nice to sit outside and have access to the buffet. Go not too late because it can be crowded.
Our experience in Penang was very good and we can recommend to stay at the Lone PIne hotel as an happy customer.
Thank you for your very good customer service. Keep going.
