Perfect birthday getaway

Beautiful large room, magnificent view, nice food and services
First time in Penang. We are celebrating my friend's birthday. E&O is a perfect hotel for a short getaway. Beautiful large room with magnificent view of the ocean, great facilities: nice swimming pool and gym. We also love choices of restaurants and cafes. Good food and beverages. Staff is attentive and helpful. Wonderful hotel.

A journey through Penang

The room, the breakfast and the building
It wasn't a hotel; it was a time-machine that took me back 60 years to when, as a kid, I was a regular visitor to the hotel. My uncle had a book stall there. Then in the 70s, the music lounge (can't recall what it's called) became the regular place for me and my wife to relax with friends. Very little has changed, especially the friendly and responsive staff. The breakfast spread met my expectation.

5 star service delivered.

1. The staff 2. Excellent f&b 3.Amazing pool area(new wing)
Enjoyed every minute! Had the deluxe suite, it was super spacious, plenty of space to move around. The suite was looking a little rustic. Probably since it was located in the heritage wing. Everything in that wing seemed very antic-like. Amazing breakfast buffet. Just one tiny downside the car park. It was somewhat of a walk for me from the car (new wing parking lot) to my suite (hearitage wing)

Gorgeous Room

Room, In-room Dining, Spa
We stayed in the victory annex building which is the new wing. The room was gorgeous with a beautiful view of the sea. We were there over the hari raya weekend and was treated with daily fireworks display every night. The room is luxurious and the wifi signal was really strong. Soft drinks in the fridge were complimentary and hotel staff came around mid day to ask if we needed to refill the drinks. That was really excellent service. One suggestion is to have firmer pillows as both my husband and I felt that the pillows were way too soft even though we had 2 each. We ordered in room dining and the food came promptly and were delicious. Highly recommend the Panpuri spa in the hotel as well, which we thoroughly enjoyed. One other point for improvement is that the concierge staff could be better trained. They were not very professional and it took a long time for us to check in. All in all, a very enjoyable stay. I would stay here again if I visit George Town.
