Tired and run down
I booked this hotel for a recent visa run so I stayed. The hotel is old and tired dirt around frames of mirrors and along skirting is ground in and the furninsings were worn and tatty. Towels are almost see through and the wall paper and paint are falling odd and flaking. It served my purpose that's all , much better to be had for less money don't go here unless you have to!!!

Conventional and standard
Nothing really great about this hotel. Location is consider ok, have to travel by car but not by foot. The hotel is old, a bit rundown. Front desk staff not so professional in terms of their hospitality skill, you don't feel welcome to be their guest.

The room was really nice and view was also nice. around 10 min walk to center George town and all the beautiful roads. I recommend the hotel. Only disappointment was the fridge that was not working at all so we asked the hotel team 3 times and it was still not fixed on our last day stay... I hope it will be for the next customers.
