Good staff and environment.
Has very friendly staffs. Nice environment. Need to walk a bit to the attractions. Can get taxi easily. Penang taxi getting more and more expensive as the drivers don't go by meters.

Interesting Hotel
It is a hotel filled with history and services was impeccable. The staff was very helpful and gave us travel tips. Everyday, from 5pm to 6pm there is free flow of alcohol, beverages and finger foods at the lounge. The scenery from the lounge is beautiful especially on sunny day and facing the sea.

Expected Better
Reception service was lacking. Rooms were nice except, avoid the corner rooms of the hotel as you can hear the beats of the club below. Probably won't stay there again.

Loved the service but would stay at the new wing next time
Tried the old wing this time, would def prefer to stay at the new wing next time - the pool is better and bigger at the new wing as well. Service was excellent as usual.
