Cute heritage hotel

Friendly staff, clean and nicely done up
We arrived late at the hotel but was greeted with a warm welcome from Kevin. Since it was off peak season, parking was not a problem. The setup of the hotel brings you back to the early 1950's with its timber and heritage finishing. We booked the superior suite named Light St which is located at the ground floor. We were lucky because it was just us and another guest who was staying in this hotel, so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The front desk staff Kevin and Jason was very friendly and attentive. Since this is a heritage house, each room comes with its own private toilet but it's not attached to the room. You need to walk across from your room. For ladies especially, this might be a bit of a hassle as you need to carry a lot of stuff with you when you want to shower. So, for those who are fussy, I recommend you get the room with the en-suite toilet for convenience purposes. Complimentary apples and mineral water are given with the room. There's also a common area where you can sit down, have coffee and biscuits. Overall if you're looking for an experience with an open mind, I highly recommend you stay here just to get the heritage feel of it. The only downside of this hotel is, the TV reception is very bad. We couldn't watch anything. Room is equipped with a flat screen TV but nothing is watch-able. I suggest the owner should consider installing cable TV or get the main aerial fixed.

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every moment.

It's in a great location being welling distance from both Kimberley St and McAllister Rd. The staff were very accommodating. The place has a lovely old world charm about it.
We enjoyed every moment and wished we could have stayed longer. We had our baby with us and this wasn't a problem. The place is lovely and the location perfect if you're up for eating the awesome street food that Penang has to offer. We'll be back for sure.

Quaint little spot in Georgetown

Architecture and service are impeccable. The price can't be beat for the hotel quality.
I loved staying in Ke-lan-tan and I would, without a doubt, stay there again. The location is a bit far from all the happenings but it's still within walking distance if you don't mind walking.
