The hotel's location is very strategically located next to the beach and near the city of George Town. The rooms are spacious and clean and also provide a delicious breakfast. The pools were great and suitable for children. Staff friendly and willing to help at any time. My family and I feel very happy and will be back here again.
Well, there is nothing to shout about this hotel. It was an aging hotel with spacious room and some nice buffet. It is a nice hotel for a short family trip. Front office staffs are so so...... Hospitality is dead nowadays.......
Just returned from our third visit ( one month ) to this hotel located on the beach at Tanjung Bungah on the north coast of Penang. Once again we were highly satisfied with most aspects of the hotel. The friendliness of the staff and the service provided throughout our stay was excellent. Our room was kept spotless and the bed linen and towels were changed every day. The beds were extremely comfortable and the air con worked well. We has a room on a high floor overlooking the beach which got the sun from about 2pm till sunset. The hotel run a shuttle bus into Georgetown and various other locations. Our long stay room rate included tea, coffee, bottled water and a daily paper. Breakfast mid week was fine, but at weekend it was all a bit busy between 8 and 9am. The hotel was kept spotlessly clean everywhere internally, but certain parts of the exterior require to be cleaned or repainted. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for an enjoyable and reasonably priced holiday in Penang.
THIS IS THE WORST HOTEL EVER! PLEASE DONT COME!! YOU BETTER THROW UR MONEY ON SOME BUDGET HOTEL THAN THIS OH SO CALLED 4 STAR HOTEL!! I AM IN THE HOTEL RIGHT NOW AND I CANT EVEN SLEEP! Noisy aircond and the aircond not function at all, I CAN FEEL MY SWEAT DRIPPING MY RIGHT NOW, i feel like i'm staying at gunung sahara right now, and you know what time is this? Its 3.48 am right now. THIS IS NOTHING BUT THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER BEEN, i will regret this for my entire life, THIS HOTEL ALSO GOT THAT CREEPY FEELING I TELL YOU. I feel so sorry to myself and my entire family. Please don't come here, or else you will experience what i've been telling here. Jangan cakap abang tak payung~
We booked a family room via online hotel booking site for a day trip to Penang. The spacious room comes with two bedrooms, a living area, dinner table, two bathrooms, three balconies, three tv sets and other common facilities. Additionally, we got a sea-facing view on one side and town-view on the other that is relatively nice. Breakfast is relatively good, with considerable choices. The cafe that is located by the pool side is just about 30 metres away from the open beach. Btw, the housekeeping might be further improved.
and i must come down to the reception to pay?!?! What?!?!! Eh hello where did you all learn Hotel Business from?? This kind of reception is cap ayam, definitely lowest class, go back to the drawing board and learn how to spell hospitality! Plus points? Luckily the King Size bed is big enough for the three of us, i am not going down there miss pay first! Make a guest down to pay for the extra bed! Certainly my furst tume to be asked by the reception. crazy!
Poor front office service not friendly, we can feel we are not welcomed very slow in check in room is not properly clean, housekeeping not friendly either, ask them one question but answer is not related to my question, may be could not understand english, won't return to this hotel again
Hardly as one faces looking up at your hotel...at front entrance...one would ask WHY ? Is the management forgot to ask to repaint the walls...check it out! The reception received was cold...esp.by bellman on duty.Must a check in guest waits for service...not in sight.... Amenities of hotel ...ok...spacious....hanging ceiling fans...beautiful scenery .
This is our second visit to this hotel. Staffs at reception was not friendly. Rooms look dull and old. Furnitures worn out. Aircond vent was dirty. Quite hot during the night. Bathrooms was not clean. This hotel desperately needs an upgrade!
The rooms are big but definately need makeover. Bed was too soft. Staff was helpful but not well versed. Had to check 3 times before he could give me proper information about late check-outs. Breakfast was totally disappointing. Food does not look appetizing. Spa was a disappointment. They would not even do an additional 5 minutes pass their closing time. They rather you reduce the massage time. Salon was not open though the opening hours were clearly stated.
