Holiday Inn Resort Penang

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Malaysia was the ideal location to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We hesitated on a hotel location for the two nights/three days we spent in Penang and decided that outside of the city would be more relaxing. We rented a car from KLIA, and drove through Ipoh, spending one night there before reaching Penang. The Holiday Inn Resort in Batu Feringhi offered an ideal location, being near the shops, restaurants and night market places, but yet quiet and right on the beach. What's more we were able to book a double room at a VERY reasonable price because we booked in advance. Upon checking in, the lovely women at the front desk noticed our HI loyalty card, and upgraded us from a standard mountain view room, to a deluxe beach view room, on a very high floor, with all of the trimmings. It was a fantastic large room, with a gorgeous view, light colours and fresh, simple decorations. We were given every possible amenity at our fingertips. We could not have had anything better. We opted out of breakfast, which was also offered at a very reasonable rate, and which we understand is very good. We love Malaysian food and wanted to eat all of our meals locally. The swimming pool was large, clean and located, very cleverly, quite a distance from the special pool for little children. The main pool was quiet, with a fabulous sea view, especially at sunset. We were offered a free welcome drink at the bar, and given lots of coupons for discounts at all the food and drinks venues. Our only very small complaint is that the pool closed at 20H00, whereas we would have enjoyed spending more time in the water at the end of the day, after the sun had set and would have preferred a later closing time. We are very grateful to the Holiday Inn for making our stay hassle-free, enjoyable and relaxing. The staff were lovely, discreet, and professional. No over the top waiters or hassles from anyone. Our parking was free, and the standard of the room very high. We will definitely return!

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Close to the beach area. And the breakfast buffet was awesome. Will be back again next time!

Love the variety of activities available around the hotel area such as massage, night market etc!

It was a very good way to experience Penang, Malaysia and the Malaysian people. Despite the fact that it was busy holiday time, the staff made it very comfortable for us to stay in Penang. Keep it up.

Very courteous service, internet slightly slow, but who cares... you don't go there for web surfing. Great rooms, spacious and comfortable.

Great property, good location nice rooms (tower)watch the bar.. A nice stay, good rooms and hotel staff. But the bar was way overpriced for the area, (6-8 times local places) hard to get a drink even when you decide to stop there. Restaurant also overpriced. $25.00 for breakfast. 4 restaurants in the area can eat for $3-5.00
