Interesting Boutique Hotel”
If large Hotels are getting boring then this Hotel is perfect for a short getaway. There are not many facilities and the pool is in a strange position close to the main road. Breakfast is from 8am to 12pm so not good for early risers. The restaurant "The Dinning Room " is excelent. Superb food, knowledegable staff, great wine list and good vakue for money. If you are looking for an 8 course fine dinning experience, you cant go wrong eating here. The rooms are large and well equipped.

Beautiful refurbished old mansion”
Enjoyed staying at this hotel. The only downside was that the bar area, which is attached to the cafe breakfast area, allows people to smoke in it. I think the few people, mostly people not staying at the hotel, smoke inside and as a result the whole downstairs including cafe area stinks like an ashtray and worse.

Designer hotel”
The hotel designed for comfort with a vintage feel to it. Each room has a unique interior. Big comfortable bed, open design, curtains move with the touch of a button, romantic lighting, bathtub and toilet are clean. Service was great too. The hotel staff enter the room twice a day. First time, they do the usual room cleaning and change of sheets and towels. Second time, they set up the room for night, adding macarons and chocolate truffles, and refill the complementary snacks and water. Hotel facilities are a restaurant, a cafe, a den, a swimming pool. My husband wanted to have a whiskey and cigar so we went to the den around 11pm. It was a nicely designed area, but the selection is not very wide. We also used the swimming pool once. The pool isn't well-patronised so we had some privacy. But that also means that the area isn't set up all the time. When we went there, we had to walk through the cafe, and grab towels from a cart near the pool.

Lovely, private hotel!”
My partner and I, together with 2 other couples, managed to get rooms here (thankfully) despite booking it at different times. They only have 8 rooms which makes your stay exclusive. Breakfast for us was provided everyday and it's an extensive breakfast which we enjoyed very much. Different rooms has different concepts but the rooms were all lovely! My partner can't stop raving about it! There was also complimentary minibar throughout our whole stay! Take a 10 mins walk down and you'll arrive at an area that sells all sorts of street food for dinner. Otherwise, it's convenient and cheap to go around in Grab.

Christmas at Macalister ”
Christmas in hot places can feel a bit weird. Christmas at Macalister Mansion was like staying in a little luxury lodge. Spacious, beautiful and comfortable - both the rooms and the rest of the hotel. We love Design Hotels for their attention to detail and they craft a lovely, unique customer experience. I think maybe we were some of the only people staying there, so service was attentive and relaxed. Breakfasts in the cafe were a perfect way to start a day of wandering around Penang. Christmas Dinner - an 8+ course degustation was inventive, delicious and filling. With a generous flight of international wine to match we happily rolled out of there at the end of the night. The only shame, and not their fault really, is that the public area is filled with cigarette smokers on the evening, we couldn't stay long. Cigars add to the ambience, but during the day it has that stale cigarette smell in the wine cellar lounge. It's a little bit away from the main sites of Penang, but quite a few times we walked back even from Gurney Road) and the 30-40min walk was probably quicker than waiting in the traffic. We loved our stay there. The nightly macarons always made us smile, the bed and pillow menu was heaven!

NOT WORTH.”
Check into the room finding millipedes and cockroach scurrying across the floor and curtains. Staff was not pro active when requested for a change of room. Request was attended but no follow up actions from them,basically, doing the bare minimum duties from a highly rated review hotel. Bad experience, bad service. Will never ever step foot into this place again neither will be recommended to my friends and family. Anyway i do have pictures of all the crawling creatures in the room.

Great room, no gym”
We felt excited when we saw our amazing room; it was much bigger and better than the pictures. Ghe facilities, products etc were top class. The only gripes we had were the poor wifi (which was better once we were given a personal portable wifi gadget) and the 'woeful' gym, which was a running Maxine and a cross-trainer. As we filter based on the hotel having a gym, we were disappointed. We are breakfast and a few other meals in 'The Living Room' and Zabiri is an outstanding member of staff. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere along with the range of food.
