8/10 Very good

Nice oasis
Oli and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. Wi-Fi, though, was spotty. The room facing the street could be noisy at times with late night revelers from pubs at the other end of the street.

Beautiful colonial hotel close to everything
This beautiful colonial hotel is within walking distance to all turist sites in Georgetown. The staff is super friendly, the food and fresh juices were delicious. We loved it and hope to go back next time we go to Penang. Absolutely recommend it!

Delightfully restored heritage house hotel
The owner has taken great care in restoring the property, which features a delightful interior courtyard as well as tastefully decorated rooms. We were able both to check in early and check out late on our stay. The property is located in a quiet but still central part of Georgetown - just a short walk to the little India area, and to the nightlife on Chulia Stree. One thing to note is that no staff are on-site at night, and guests are given a key to lock and unlock the main door if they leave the building (a bit daunting at first given the size of the door, but certainly not a problem). Worth noting also that the wifi was easy to connect to and reliable/fast. The owner was very helpful, both with suggestions for shopping and local sights, and also in arranging transportation to the airport on the day we left. Defintely a place to return to on future trips to Penang.

4/10 Fair

Could be a lot better
Staff at the hotel are lovely and very helpful; the cook/handyman went out of his way to make sure I was happy and the cleaner does her job very well. Inside the room, the was a thick layer of dust/cobwebs on the 2 large ceiling lights and where the ceiling meets the wall, which is not nice to look at when you're lying on the bed! (not the cleaner's fault, as the ceilings are very high and hard to reach - however, they should be cleaned at least once or twice a year). The other thing that was quite disappointing was the large amount of mould around the shower tray. It's a small hotel and it's not really a huge expense to replace the silicone. There were also long cracks in wall that needed to be filled and painted over. I was offered a free upgrade to my room, as only 2 rooms were occupied at the hotel (including mine), during my stay. But I declined the offer because the other room was very hot and stuffy. It's not only the room that required attention. In the downstairs lounge area, there was a large amount of water leaking from the glass ceiling. For the amount of money charged for the room, I would expect better.

Beautiful heritage hotel
The hotel is beautiful, in a heritage building that has been lovingly restored. My room had high ceilings, wood floors, and shuttered windows that look out over the street. The hotel staff was warm, kind, and very helpful, and they provided delicious local breakfasts and high tea each day. One of my best stays in Asia.

Lovely hotel in a convenient location
It is a lovely hotel in colonial style, located in a very convenient spot of old town. From the hotel you can walk 10-15 mins to Armenian st., Cannon st., Campbell St., etc. And 20 mins to Penang street where you can find the best cendol of the town and lots of famous restaurants around that area. Armenian st., Cannon st., Campbell St., etc. And 20 mins to Penang street where you can find the best cendol of the town and lots of famous restaurants around that area. The room is very clean with lots of facilities is room such as small fridge, tv, hair dryer, safety box, water heater but unfortunately I only can connect wifi at the common area downstairs not in my room. Breakfast at the hotel is awesome. There are 2 choices of breakfast and we chose the local breakfast, Roti with egg + Nasi Lemak. It's quiet big breakfast for us but we manage to finish it all. The staff there are very friendly, polite, caring and helpful. I had chance to talk with them and It showed that he does his job from his heart. If I have chance to go back, I will definitely stay here.

A delightful change
Probably isn't the most suitable B&B for a business traveler but it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed myself. If you want to stay a night and then enjoy the sites of Penang, give it a go. Staff were so pleasant. I couldn't get wifi in my room but it was fine in the main common area. I will come back and stay here for sure if on holiday. Recommend You Le Yuan gives earplugs to guests staying in the room closest to the road. Those boys at the school opp are so noisy and Friday mornings is a symphonic band practice with bagpipes at 7am
