Improvement in bathroom facilities
The toilet seat was in need of repair, it was out of alighment so was not comfortable. The wash basin area is too small. Water get splashed onto the sides. Towels given were frayed at the edges

Nice experience
Overall it is a good stay. such a beautiful hotel. We are also got a free hi-tea voucher which is very nice and we enjoy it. Just one thing, Myself and my 2 babies (6months & 2yrs old) was sick on our second day stay . I strongly believe it is because the air ventilation in the hotel was not very good as the room that i stayed does not have window. other than that, all is good

Great location and good hotel service
Great location to walk to popular eateries and street, e.g. joo hooi cafe, teochew cendol and hameediyah restaurant, toh soon cafe along Campbell food street. Just outside the hotel there is the best mutton soup according to our Grab driver. Hotel staff are very friendly and gave us recommendation on places to visit. Breakfast selection could have been improved but I do understand most tourist travel to Penang for their local delicacies not hotel food. Hotel is well decorated, very cosy.

Lovely Colonial atmosphere, wish we had more time there to really enjoy it. But there is always next time and, if we are travelling to Penang, it will be our hotel of choice.

such a beautiful setting. Service was amazing. My room was at the end near the kitchen dining area and so was a little noisy at times, especially since I was needing to retire early a few of the nights. Not sure how that can even be changed, so maintain my high rating!
