Comfortable bed, very nice rooms, very nice surroundings....

Wonderful but there were little details that should not happen to a hotel like this. The door latch had to be fixed as well as the aircon control cover fell off. The reception gave the bellboy the wrong room to take me to as well and we barged in on a nice young couple.... apart from those minor issues, it was a lovely stay.

I used my AGODA Points which made my one night stay at the hotel very affordable. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed and we had a good nights sleep. Restaurants and Bars were top notch.

Exceptional Hotel

A wonderful and decadent hotel. Staff very friendly and good English. Room very spacious and grand. Very clean and staff were very attentive. Pool area was great (near Club lounge) but would not like it in school holiday times as small area and many children yelling and jumping in pool would make this very noisy - btw - no pool rules shown, i.e. running, jumping, adult supervision etc and of course, most of the sun lounges are 'reserved' very early in the morning by selfish guests who most of the time don't even use the lounges, just leave their towel all day which makes it hard for others to use a sun lounge - there ought to be a law against it and the Hotel staff should advise there is a time limit on 'reserving' the lounges. Apart from that it was a great experience and paying the extra to stay in the Club Lounge floor was well worth it - they have a happy hour for club lounge guests which is great - complimentary drinks and canapés. Great time was had

Gorgeous hotel, but average food

Fabulous, colonial-style hotel with gracious lobby, gorgeous furnishings and attractive public spaces - a great location for rest and relaxation. Staff were attentive and courteous - check in etc was swift. Concierge was very helpful in arranging dinner outside. Excellent buffet breakfast - in Victory wing restaurant, But evening meals were average - and service was unbelievably slow! A shame as this really let down the overall experience.

Good Memories to Treasure

Perfect Luxuray, Good Location and Friendly Staff

A great location on the fringes of the World Heritage Area and a cheap taxi ride (or a very hot half hour walk) from the shopping malls of Gurney Drive. An added benefit from the original you get a lovely black slate balcony overlooking the Malacca Straits. Huge bathroom, lovely toiletries, dressing gown or sarong, everything you need. Great housekeeping. An added pleasure was the free cocktails and canapés each evening in the Planter's Lounge where you will also find a rather lovely infinity edge pool. Definitely worth a five star rating and I would stay again. But just a couple of areas for attention if they want to rival the real Grand Dames of Asia. The concierge service in the Victory Annexe needs a bit of a polish. I wanted info on local stuff and a local map but they didn't have it available so they suggested I walk to the Heritage Wing to find out. There was a guy in the Heritage Wing (very smart, he may have been a manager) who was more than helpful.

Pleasant annual stay at the E&O

Location, seafront view, quiet

This has been our hotel of choice during our annual visit to Penang over the years, however, service remains slow, spotty and disorganized especially during breakfast. The switches in the Annex room are confusing and the fruit plate when it did materialized two days into our stay was old and unappetizing. We were pleasantly surprised to find a little museum behind the lobby elevators. Because of its inconspicuous location, it would be helpful to have visible signage with opening and closing times of this little gem of a place.
