Lovely ambience to the motel, had a real olde world charm about it but with up to date facilities. Our room had an enormous bed and we slept soundly. It was a good location for walking the strip and visiting the night markets which were right on the foorpath outside.
The breakfast buffet had a vast array of delicious foods, and the small but well stocked souvenir shops had a good range of items at set prices for those who don't want to haggle at the markets.

Thank you so much for your great score and comments about our Team and food quality , sincerely greatly appreciated!
In regards of our restaurant charges, If I may share with you like I like to share quite often with everyone, yes I do agree in some ways, we may be slightly more expensive than an outside “restaurant” along the beach and surely more compared to any hawker stalls. We need to keep in mind the following, which is not always part of those outlets’ offers and I am sure I can speak on behalf of all hotels and "regulated" restaurants.
Hotels and registered restaurants (the latter being very limited or none at the beach side) have to follow very strict regulations including: licensing, permits, safety requirements and licensing, health and hygiene requirements and various frequent controls. In addition, all our Associates are paid according to local regulations and generally, I can assure you, it is much better, with proper health, social and retirement benefits. and the list could go on. All this adds on to the price, very regrettably, but that is also the price for comfort and safety.
These reasons are mainly why we can’t achieve the lower pricing offered by many outlets outside which don’t have the heavy financial burden in following all regulations that we, hotels, have to follow to operate.
In regards of the breakfast I deeply regret you did not approach us and share with us your preferences as we really try to please all palettes taste whic is not always an easy task but if informed we reallytry our best to assist and improve.
Thank you once again for sharing, we all look forward to welcome you back soon at the renerwed and transformed PARKROYAL Penang.
Have a fantastic day
