    Good 6.0
    We stayed in the corner suite which has excellent view, layout and deco but it’s not well cleaned. Dust is visible with naked eyes. Service at Sarkies sucks...waited half an hour for my latte to be served despite repeated reminders.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Beautiful view from poolside at 6th Floor
    We stayed at Annex due to renovation Heritage building. However it was amazing stay since we ever had. Room is so specious and can see seaside and sunrise from small balcony. We had lunch at 6th floor poolside lounge after check-out. The view is so magnificent! Thank you all staff are very friendly and professional. Already missing E&O!

    Short stay in Penang
    Beautiful hotel and infinity pool with an amazing view. Staff are well-dressed, like they're going to the opera! At the time of my visit, there was no complimentary afternoon drinks or high tea but I think that doesn't matter as there's lots of good food to be had in Georgetown. I appreciated the early check-in and late check-out (1 pm). The spa has good deals, watch out for their promotions. Thank you to Sasha for looking after me!

    sg2 night family trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    The room is very big with a verandah overlooking the sea. Two wash basin , one for him and the other for me. (HiS and hers). The bed is very comfortable and the Housekeeping did a good job. We stayed at the new wing. The furniture are good and nice. The hotel is similar to Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Restaurant food are good but we could not taste the English tea snack at 1819 as they prepared for Christmas dining and those 2 days 24th and 25th Dec they do away with the tea buffet.overall rating is perfect 10/10
    Cecilia Lai Wan, sg2 night romance trip
    Very good 8.0
    Breakfast could be improved.
    The only grouse about the hotel is the breakfast spread at Sarkies. Nothing substantial & hot on standby. Want noodles? Join the queue. Roti canai? Wait. Eggs? Queue up again. Chicken rendang for nasi lemak? Sorry, no meat, just sambal & condiments. And another thing, if you choose to sit outside, be prepared for a bit of chaos as staff struggle with the crowd.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Wonderful, magical, colonialist-like hotel.
    Lovely stay, live like a 19th-century merchant at buzzling Penang. Great food, service and amenities
