Old but elegant

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: The wonderful foryer and friendly helpful staff.
Cons: Utilise the outside bar area
Location: The location is perfect for getting to places
This hotel may be old but the elegance of it can be seen shining through, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the the rooms are ageing but are clean and tidy, the location of the hotel is good, plenty of places to eat and you can pop on the bus just outside the hotel to George town,the spice gardens or to batu farringy and see the buttifly farm, we had a fantastic 11 day stay, the only down fall is the pool side bar isn't up and running, but you can order from the menu. The prices of food and drinks could be a little more competitive, but these are certainly not complaints as it's just a short walk across the road to obtain better prices.

Private Beach and free transfers

Posted Oct 9, 2014
Pros: friendly staff big rooms great location
Cons: room safe
Location: butterfly farm and nite market
Stayed here many times, large rooms great service 24 hrs cafe great satay ! free shuttle bus to Georgetown and Batu F bus stops right outside hotel bus 101 runs every 15 mins. Friendly staff a spacious feel to the hotel. close to local attractions, the location allows you to use public transport if you wish, as still since my 1st trip 15 years ago, sadly the Taxi drivers still Refuse to use the Meter and the Malaysian government still turning a blindeye to the corruption Sad. But get past the taxi's and penang is great for beaches and shopping and a great nite life try Soho

Nice hotel, spacious

Posted Sep 17, 2014
Basically all good except this hotel is old style, would strongly suggest to refurbish to new style to provide more comfort. (Eg the switches, bathroom etc) besides the bathroom door can't be closed because of the wooden door is expose to wet condition. (We didn't change the room because just another night we will b leaving) Staff was OK. Car park is free. Bed is comfort. Generally OK.

Looking a little tired

Posted Sep 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
In its day in the 1970s, this was doubtless top notch. The years have not been kind to the public areas however - old lifts, dirty carpets, etc - though the rooms have been partially refurbished. The fact that it has a small garden area away from the pool is nice, as is the small but very private beach - watersports are available at the larger adjoining beach, 10/15 mins walk away. If you are looking for a quiet Penang beach get away, this is probably as quiet as it is going to get.

getting a bit tired

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: nice pool and beach
Cons: the decor needs updating
Location: handy to bus stop as it is 30 metres down the road, the 101 takes you just about anywhere in penang
twenty years ago this place would have been excellent,but now it is starting to show its age.it needs an update to bring it back to its former glory.the staff are friendly and helpful but an explanation of free shuttle times and procedures on arrival would have been handy
