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.

Not many people stay, which make us feel like king n queen, living in a palace with grand dining area and the swimming pool. So touching that they hv pillow menu, and the design of the hotel is excellent.

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.

Perfect room for a couple anniversary”
I wanted to go with my girlfriend for our one-year anniversary, and it was the good choice. The room is perfect, you just want to spend time in it. The mansion and its different rooms is greatly restored, with this mix of old colonial and modern art, I really loved it. Wifi was not extraordinary overall, and location could be a bit better. Also, when booking cabs from the reception, we often found non metered taxi, I don't mind, but in this case, reception should advise on the rate or inform us.

This is a hidden gem. We can see that there's a lot of effort being put in to refurbish and maintain the place. Great experience.
