1st class small hotel with nicely appointed rooms and grounds.Staff could not do more and were always on hand to sort out any problems however small.Food in the restaurants was excellent and for a good hotel very keenly priced.Only one caveat-see travellers tips.

This is one hotel I will recommend to friends and travellers with family young kids as the room is spacious. Best of all there's a mini bath tub at the balcony which is really unique. The hotel rooms are all basically facing the sea, which is worth the money paying for, it cost us around USD160 with breakfast for 2 per night.

The hotel also provides free slippers for guests and a sarong batik for guest use. Of course it is chargeable for the sarong and you can purchase it if you like.

Good service and friendly hotel staff. Great location too, as there are many eatery places within walking distances and near all the night market places for a quick souvenir shopping.

Lone Pine is an average beach resort. The rooms are okay but not special. Facilities, like the gym, are average. Breakfast is extensive. But make sure you get a chair before breakfast. At 9am almost all chairs at the pool are reserved by towels, books and T-shirts. If you arrive at the pool later than 10am you have to sit in the grass. You don't expect that from a so-called luxury resort. We spent 4 night at the sister hotel Eastern & Oriental in Georgetown and we wish we would have stayed there... Same price but uncomparable quality...

Ok, the rooms are good but honestly during my stay which is a 2nd time was lousy. And why? The room was cleaned only after 6pm. Reason - not enough cleaners! For the price I paid and to hear this from them, it makes me want to puke! And then there's the breakfast! Boy oh boy what a poor serving they have. Go to the cheese section and I find only 2 bars there. I came back 15mins later still the same. Terrible in variety! So I went on ordering the fried koay teow. Honestly, I could have fried it better myself. It was tasteless! So in short, I won't be returning to this hotel and I will surely discourage my friends and family not stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not let reviews fool you! Always look at location and read all comments

So much to rave about! Beach front room on the highest level guaranteed a windy stay with soothing waves crashing sound since the resort was only a few steps away from the beach. Friendly staffs, ensure that our stay was pleasant with free shuttle bus to george town so there was always something on our itinerary and clean rooms and bed and chlorine- free pool to make our stay even more enjoyable. Poor breakfast though BUT will def go back!

As a promise that i will be back, i kept it and returned to the Lone Pine for a get together which i organised for a small group of my staff. I took 2 Garden deluxe room.... Check in as usual was great and we were escorted to our room.... Our room was on the ground floor and was rather big, it had 2 queen size beds and a small courtyard garden and right next to the swimming pool..... Everything in the room was superb except perhaps the DVD player which was spoiled and needed to be changed... But the maintenance guy was quick to react and change it..... I always liked the Lone Pine for its Nostalgic values and superb gardens..... Nothing beats that.... Its a laidback resort and can easily sooth anyone's minds..... Breakfast as usual was great.... Overall It was a great trip.... Just wondering if the Lone Pine has any special discounts for frequent returning Guests as my company does not have corporate rates in Here......
