            Studio suite was very large. Shower was good.

            Corridor on no smoking floor smelled of cigarettes fortunately room did not but did smell a bit musty. Wifi was poor.

            We booked deluxe suite but they upgraded us to president suite. huge rooms and comfortable.

            The lift broke down when we went for swimming and we had to use staff's lift. Too many people and we had to wait for quite long

          • Older travelers

            It's value for money and very convenient for those who want to stay within city. Room was nicely laid out and clean.

            Staff attitude and service level need to improve. Need to have more food variety. Some of the furniture especially mattress need to change. It's getting ageing and lost its comfort.

          • Family with children

            Only the location is good.

            The rooms are run down. The lobby area is dull. I had specified non smoking rooms but I was put in a smoking floor. The restaurants are all closed down except the coffee house. My rating of the hotel only 3 stars. A big letdown.

            Great sea view, got free upgrade to junior suite, met a friendly staff called May who is a Chinese.

            They charged me for twice and luckily I did constantly check my account or else all my money will just gone. Bad location, very near to gurney drive but to drive from hotel to gurney drive, need to spend more time than walking.

            The rooms are very big and so is that bathroom. The infinity pool overlooks the sea view. Approx 15 mins walk to gurney plaza and hawker center. There are also many eating places close by (within walking distance). Only 10 mins by car to georgetown & approx. 1 mins to Penang Hill

            The jacuzzi tub does not work. The food in the hotel is very poor. The buffet breakfast has a lot of variety but the taste is very disappointing.

            A very comfortable hotel.

            The centralised air-cond was very cold on the first day. The next day the temperature was well adjusted.

            • Average rating
          • Older travelers

            Poor maintenance of rooms, old and damaged towels, air conditioning that couldn't be regulated. Terrible condition of rooms and bedding. Compared to other hotels within the same price in Penang, the quality of the rooms and service was much inferior.

            • Average rating
          • Family with children

            The sea view is fantastic and it's strategically located near Gurney and the town. It's easily accessible to food, shopping centres, beach etc. We were also greeted warmly by the hotel staff and manager.

            Hotel is not child friendly. There's no children pool and the pool is freezing cold. Staff won't let us have more than 2 pool towels due to policy of only 2 towels per room, eventhough I'm a family of four and this is the first time that I've encountered this restriction. I requested for non-smoking room but was given smoking room. Plus the bath robe used by previous tenant (with stains) was not changed.
