Great value hotel in Penang”
Nice hotel for the price. Staff very friendly and helpful.Rooms decent for the price.Seaview room have lovely view and cool breeze.Breakfast ok.Food stalls and shops across the road approx 5 min walk.Nice pool area with shade and afternoon breeze.Room service reasonably priced.Bus stop outside hotel on road for bus into Georgetown or shopping Plaza's.Hotel needs update but that is reflected in value room price.
1-Room was very dirty 2-Very old building 3-Bathtub clogged and dirty as well 4-buffet breakfast was not nice at all 5-housekeeping staff has no manners because they replaced my water bottle and put inside dustbin,that’s not a proper way. 6-please don’t fake the pictures,the room and picture on this Agoda app is totally different. Thank you..
Location: Is good and satisfactory, close to Gurney drive - only 15mins drive. There are Guardian and 7-11 opposite the hotel. Room: Overall, the room is clean. The only shock for you is that the hotel room is very old. Still, we are fine with the hotel room. Cleanliness: My only comment is the private beach - the beach can be improved better and cleaner. It is a beautiful beach but not properly maintained. The moment you go down to the beach, you may not want to stay longer there.
Good experience ”
Room given looks like minor reno done recently. Notice it's still on going few doors away on same floor. Thou furnitures aging but quite clean overall. Air conditioning is super cool (which is ++ point). Breakfast was not bad, thou small offering but many varieties which is sufficient to starts the day. Overall, superior room with balcony, sea view and breakfast included for the price paid is amazingly cheap.
The photo is deceiving as the building interiors look & smell quite old.”
Staff are very friendly&helpful without being intrusive/in your face (probably staff are less stressful because the hotel has an agreement with the Union?) Beachside has a strong smell & not as nice as East Coast (dont dare to dip in), but the breeze from the pool deck is nice. Breakfast food is not that great.
Very Satisfied Stay”
was given room no. 1225. nice sea view and facing Rainbow Hotel , very spacious room and clean. very comfortable for my old mom and dad. Staff friendly especially the bell boys were very helpfull to my mom and dad with helping to push my mom and dad on wheelchair whenever needed. #goodbellboys.. mom and dad also very satisfied with the breakfast. Location is okay, opposite road of Corpthorne there is like foodcourt and rows of shops 7 elevens etc.. happy with our stay and definately will come back. tq
was given room no. 1229. nice view of beach and tennis court of The Cove (room was place 2nd frm front) clean and aircond good. Strong water pressure. Staff friendly and breakfast was good especially the chicken with spice herbs very delicious #thankyouchef
Worth the Money”
Let's start with the reality of the hotel: furnishings are old, pool and breakfast selection is nothing to shout about. HOWEVER, Staffs here are friendly, and the beach (clean with actual blue waters) is right outside the hotel gates. Above all, I paid RM190/night for a 500sqft, sea-facing, superior room with balcony on the 15th floor. I could lay on my bed and still have a good view of the blue sea and sky. The weather didn't disappoint either. And for those reasons, I'd still rate my stay a solid 10 stars. I was there for the proximity to the beach, the sea view and a big room. And I got all of them.
Room is good but got electrical problem ”
Junior suite have huge space room with very nice seawiew. Quite far from parking. Enjoy stay here but got electrical problem with my room. When on iron, sofa section will blackout. Wondering the iron shot, ask to change iron, still same problem. Everything else is ok. Will return here
Overall quite a pleasant stay”
Nice view on the ocean. Towels catered initially have got a bit of smell, however got a new set of fresh towels upon request from the friendly staff. Room is clean, a little old but its good otherwise. Grab is available throughout Penang, so travelling anywhere is hassle free. Breakfast is good too!
The room view is fantastic and the beach is a lovely cove. I've stayed further up the coast before and found it full of motor sports making the sea oily. This location is ideal as it's only ten minutes to Chinatown /Georgetown. Couldn't fault it.
Clean private beach!”
My forth time staying here.This time we are stay at Junior Suite room.Big room.Breakfast is more choices.My family really like hotel's private beach and swimming pool.We really enjoying all the time.Get a birthday cake surprise from hotel for my birthday daughter.My kids really happy for the surprise and the cake very delicious..Will staying here again for the next time.Thank you very much!
Good Location with Direct Access to the Beach”
This was my first time staying in this location It is a perfect location, close to the city centre, as well as Ferringhi. The seaview room we occupied was clean and spacious and and the balcony was big with amazing view. The hotel has a direct access to the beaxh and it's great. The breakfast buffet too was not disappointing.
I stayed in a deluxe room, the room is spacious, although the furniture is a bit old, but the room is very clean. Good access to the beach, Nice and friendly staff. Always with smile. Breakfast is just okay, not much variety of food, swimming pool is okay, depth ranging from 1m. 1.5m to 2m, also small pool for kids. Honestly, we did not expect much from Copthorne initially, but in the end it turns out to be a good stay. Thank you
The rooms looked nothing like the pictures”
We were supposed to stay for 2 nights and explore Penang, the rooms seem okay when we go through the pictures, but when we checked in we were extremely disappointed at how old the room is! We feel like we have been cheated, we checked out the next day and went to stay at another place instead.
Unpolite Front Desk Manager”
Unfortunate for the hotel to have such a very unpolite front desk manager named reuben when he could just assist with the checking in as there was no customer at the counter he was in charged. He had in mind that the queue was cut for another customer lining up for another desk officer. As a front desk manager he was not professional, not properly attired without name tag as compared to his subordinates. There was no clear signage for check in and check out to ease the customer.
The staff is very soft spoken & accompdating. Kudos to the receptionist work on the 31st Jan & 1st Feb. Not forgetting, Zamri’s team for the good service of finding the item my partner’s left. I’ll come again 🙂
No towels on first night.”
Everything was superb, the breakfast buffet being our favorite. Cleanliness was fantastic, the ambiance was nice. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. HOWEVER, we stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights, and upon checking in for our first night, we realized there were no towels provided. Since we brought our own it was not that big of a deal, but it would have been nice to have fresh towels upon checking in. But alas, we had a great stay, and would come here again in the future.
enjoy the beach nearby”
unfortunately my room is far a bit far from the beach and luckily near the main entrance. for those who get the sea view room you need to go down level 7 and get the lift at the other building to go down to access the room.
Its an old hotel but very well kept. Warm welcome by the receptionist, nice & clean room overlooked the beach and complete room amenities. Breakfast was nice. Ample parking space and the hotel location is quite close to other attractions & restaurants.
