    Possibly the best hotel in George Town

    We've stayed in a lot of hotels in George Town and this is possibly the best so far. While many have great heritage they can use that as an excuse for poor quality fixtures & fittings or services. The style is definitely more modern than some of the others, moving away from the pure classic heritage style of other places. The staff were exceptional, working hard to meet every need. The pool was long enough for lengths although not wide enough for more than two-users, but this is still good for a hotel in central George Town. The noise at night.... well yes, it was karaoke night over the road and although the earplugs helped, they couldn't block out the noise, but that did all end after midnight. Would definitely stay again and would recommend the suites.
