Good relaxing hotel with heritage ambience”
Love the heritage feeling of the hotel. It's lovely, room is comfortable with a spacious bathroom but the cot bed they provided for our baby seems a bit flimsy and old. Could have given a better cot bed that is more intact. Swimming pool is facing the sea, so it gives a very relaxing atmosphere. However, there were many mosquitoes at pool/ cafe area.

A must Stay!”
The breakfast spread was incredible. Food was prepared on the spot for consumption. The quality and taste was fabulous. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The room was large and comfortable. The view from from balcony is as promised - an unobstructed view of the sea. You can even choose the kind of pillows that you would like to have. The toilet is ridiculously spacious and incredibly well kept. The room is always made-up to look amazing after the staff have been in it. Perfect location. Everything is nearby.

I loved this place, a stunning colonial styled heritage hotel. Our room is gorgeous with a bay view and a balcony, comfortable bed, huge bathroom., well equipped with amenities. Gym is well appointed and spacious with an ocean view. The infinity pool is a great place for relaxing. The breakfast buffet was amazing, huge selection of high quality Asian and Western food. Highly recommended hotel when you travel to Penang.

a good place to relax ”
Colonial and historical hotel with spacious room and great breakfast. The hotel is very quiet and clean, staff are friendly and polite. As part of the hotel was under renovation, the only swimming pool next to the poolside restro is a bit too small though.

A wonderful stay!”
The hotel staff, amenities and room were wonderful! It is a historic building so then ambiance lends itself to that but if you love that feel then by all means - stay here! Even if that aesthetic is not necessarily your preference, I’d recommend giving it a try because it wasn’t my preference either but I ended up loving it because of the large space, the balcony overlooking the water, the food and the pool. The pool is the best I’ve seen in my 5 country site seeing excursion thus far. The spa is also fantastic! The entire place is a must for Penang! It is also very close to the Blue Mansion in case anyone wanted to see that attraction. Lastly, as a female solo traveler I felt very comfortable here.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for staying with us for 2 nights. It gives us great honor to read that we lived up to your expectations and you have had a wonderful stay here. We appreciate your recognition and look forward having you back soon. Kind regards, The Management
Our favorite hotel ”
The room had a balcony with an amazing view! All the staff were very attentive and went the extra mile when they found out my son wasn’t feeling well and brought gluten free bread for supper. The breakfast was delightful and had a huge spread of quality food. The room on our first night was a little dusty but was fine the next 2 nights. Make sure you spend time at the pool cos it is instagram worthy!! We can’t wait to be back!

An oldy worldy colonial type hotel with all mod cons. Spectacular views of the ocean and lovely balcony for early morning and evening. Black out curtains, his and hers sink. Our favourite was the lounge for breakfast and happy hour in the evening.

very cozy luxuary hotel”
E & O is icon of the Penang with very nice location, facility and stuff. The massage we experienced was something so relaxing and refreshed. The spa was our best recommended one in E & O. Just one thing disappointed was the only one plate I grabbed in breakfast buffet still get dirt. Just for it.

A hotel that provides a traditional experience in a modern setting.”
Caution needs to be exercised when walking along the pedestrian walkways in the city centre where the hotel is located, due to the presence of the uneven levels and potholes along most of the pedestrian paths in the vicinity.
Boutique Hotel and Need improvements ”
Went for the deco of the hotel and was a little disappointed as the room was quite dusty and there were obvious stains on the carpet. Staffs at reception were helpful and friendly, though the overall service standard could’ve been better and it needs improvement to cater for its 5 star hotel standard.

Vintage style hotel”
Love the heritage style room, especially the bathroom. Due to the renovation at the heritage wing, we had fewer places to access. Anyhow, we love breakfast there much, many varieties and delicious.

Wait until next year when renovations are complete”
Wonderful staff and great breakfast! Unfortunately with major renovations going on in the original building there is not enough room and the pool area is over run. Whilst there the 6th floor pool also had broken tiles. The yellow warning tape was an eyesore. Changes to the club room area at the victory annex were also very disappointing.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you indeed for staying with us. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed the breakfast and found the staff wonderful. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, The Management
The stay was heavenly. The swimming in heritage wing is good for a quite swim. Swimming pool at Victory Annex is cool but crowded at times. The breakfast was fantastic. I can't think of anything bad about this hotel. Worth every penny that you spend
