Bayview Disappoints

Disappointing. Apart from the location of the hotel, we didn't think much else. The pillows were very soft and even with 2 pillows they sunk right in. I have had a sore neck since. My husband was not feeling well one morning and they would not allow me to take food from the buffet breakfast up to the room. And yet, they have room service. Rooftop bar was great for view but drink prices over the top! Bath towels very thin and old. Didn't dry so we had to change them every day. TV remote didn't work even after they provided new batteries. Very disappointed in hotel overall.

First time stay

Dinning, location and price
My first stay in Bayview Hotel is pretty pleasant. The rooms are fairly good sized and the price is not too expensive. The location is also quite conveniently as it is near to food and drinking places. The restaurant at the rooftop of this hotel is also a good place to visit for first time tourist to Penang. Gives you a good view of the Penang bay. Overall a very nice stay and will definitely consider staying here again next time.

Comfortable Stay

Location, View, Comfortable
Good location. However I had trouble looking for the hotel parking as I drove directly to the front driveway thinking that the parking is accessible from the front. I then drove to the back as there was nobody at the front for me to ask. Finally I found a green neon light showing the way to the parking. It's easily missed though. It'll be great if the hotel logo together with the light so that it's easily recognisable. 1 stayed in a room for 2. However the amenities was only for 1. The walls were really thin. I could hear the next door guest snoring on top of my own roommate's snoring. So that's double snores! I could hear Mr and Ms next door's conversation as well. Thankfully they didn't stay up late. Other than that, all was good. The bed is comfortable though a little squeky and I loved the view! Could see the Penang Bridge from my room and I spent quite a few minutes every time enjoying the view. Wished there were more channels on the tv but it was a good thing as well as I was on a business trip so I had to focus on my work (bummer). The staff was pleasant and helpful with smiles greeting us. This is my second visit and I wouldn't mind a third! :)

Pleasant stay with excellent service from counter staff Ms.Callista. Sea view from room was breath-taking. Heard good review about 360 lounge but did not have time to soak in the roof-top view.

Bayview experience

Location, free car park for hotel guests, renovated rooms
Reasonable OK. One problem - lack of towel in room, complimentary mineral water in room only limited to 2 per stay , too little as compared with other hotels. Other hotels offer 2 bottles per day.
