    We visited Georgetown and stayed at Bayview Hotel. There were so many things wrong with this hotel. It is very aged and needs a really good upgrade. The problems we had were: +WIFI is painfully slow, or just doesn’t work at all +Leaking pipe under sink +Shower would be ok if you were only 4-foot tall +mould under rim of sink on silicon edges +Headboard on bed bangs every time a pillow touches it. Fixed to wall, so unable to adjust. +second toilet door opens within millimeters of the toilet seat. Makes for helping small children quite difficult +carpet in the room is filthy, going by the colour of my children’s socks +Bed is extremely firm, like a wooden board. +Non smoking room however constantly getting the smell of cigarettes through the vent +Strange room arrangement for family room. Only one entrance/exit which is from children’s room side. Fridge is also in that room. +freezer in fridge doesn’t work +not many channels to choose from on the tv. None for children +some days we

    Hotel Staffs can speak good English, very attentive, very helpful and polite. It was a very pleasant stay. There was no staff who was the slightest bit rude. All were smiling and initiative to help. Hotel is slightly away from the main shopping area but it is convenient to get around with Grab and most cafes are within walking distance. The room is clean, spacious and had a huge bath tub. The hotel restaurant food is good, must try their Penang Char Kway Teow. We did not purchase with breakfast so will not be commenting on that. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would be happy to stay here again.

    We truly enjoyed our 3-night stay at Bayview Georgetown. Our Suite Room is massive and it overlooks the E&O Hotel complemented with a sweeping view of the sea. Good location to explore old parts of Penang and the local eateries. Highly recommended for first time visitors to Penang. However, the only downside was the noise from the rooftop nightclub, and guests from above our room were stumping their feet making annoyingly loud noises, unfortunately.

    It was a pleasant stay!”

    The breakfast is good. The bed are super good! We had a good night sleep! I like the photos hanging on the wall along the corridor. It is an old hotel and we can smell it 😆 The only thing that is very inconvenient will be the car park, it is so far away from the hotel. If it rains I think all of us will be all wet. The toilet door knot can be quite dangerous. It should be on the door but not on the floor. People step out from bath tub might fall because of stepping on it.

    Nice enough but with some issues”

    I booked and paid extra for this hotel/room specifically to get a room with a bath. Check in was pleasant although a bit slow. I was in room 1028. I arrived late at night. Nearest convenient store is at least 400m away. It is in a nice area but is a distance from some things. Woke for a business meeting 7:00am and the shower was cold. Notified staff. Returned about 11:00am to be told the hot water had been fixed. Went to have a shower again and the water was still cold and not fixed. Went for lunch, can back and was assured the hot water had been fixed. Went to shower again at 6:00pm and the water was still not fixed. Was changed to room 1003 and the hot water worked but the WIFI was out of range. Needed to prop to room door open to get a WIFI signal. Lastly, thereis MR 100 deposit and there is also a tourist tax (per night) and I am ok with both. What I was not told upon arrival was that the tax would be taken out of the deposit. This should be mentioned at arrival.

    Hotel with great staff and service”

    Ideal hotel for those travel with families and wish to be away from noise, busy streets, reasonable price, good housekeeping and friendly helpful staff. Overall I'm happy with our stay except for the disappointment on the strict requirements that we have to take the buffet dinner in order to be able to dine at the revolving roof top restaurant. We don't mind if they cap a minimum spending in order to sit there to enjoy the view but to insist us of taking the buffet is what we are unable to do so because we have been invited for a dinner and in fact just came back after our meal. All I want is for my 86 years old mother in law to experience the atmosphere and some bites and ice-cream there. This is the only setback that the management of Bayview should consider for improvements in the future.
