                I was very very surprised with the cleanliness of the hotel. I was expecting worn out carpets and dirty toilets but the whole upkeep of the hotel was Excellent !!! They even offer a room upgrade with a very minimal fee.

                Before we left the hotel in the morning, we specifically asked the room to be cleaned by 13pm. The hotel failed twice in a row and ruined our return break. Neither the manager nor staff took responsibility, they blamed others .

                This is 3 star I don’t know how the rating agency made it 5 star. Not logic yeah Breakfast serving old food really how this is five star I hate it really. Agoda misleading it’s customers. Bad food , bar without option for beers. I felt like I m going back in time probably 80’s.

                We booked this stay on our way to Penang, checking in late in the morning was a breeze. There were funny smells in our room but it got better after a while. It’s nice to stay in a classic hotel, it feels welcoming and nostalgic.

                Charming hotel with spacious room and beautiful seaview. Decor is old but well-maintained and clean. I enjoyed my stay because the staff is helpful and attentive. Hotel is 10 mins walk from Gurney Paragon. Gym is large with free weights and universal machines. I would stay here again.

                Well maintained old hotel that is value for money ”

                First time staying at this hotel at Gurney area. It’s about 15 mins walk from Gurney Plaza Mall so if you are not for walking, it’s a very short grab ride away. The room is well maintained and seemed to be refurbished although the exterior of the hotel looks like it’s way past it’s prime and deserve an update. Otherwise everything was good for the price paid. I will rate the room a 4.5/5 for the price paid. The deduction is for a slight wobbly chair and the lack of sufficient tv channels. If you want a hotel near to all the attractions in Georgetown then this is not for you. But everywhere should be just a short distance away and a quick grab ride. I will rate the location 4.5/5 as well. As for service, I think the friendliness scale of the counter staff could be improved for this hotel to up one notch. I have had better service. Tried to call the recept from room and the phone rang forever as well. The concierge guy and doorman are pretty kind and friendly though.

                The rooms were immaculate and they were so helpful when we asked for a baby cot for our 19 months old daughter. The kids club was also one of the better ones I have seen, clean, spacious and well planned. Definitely will be back the next time I visit Penang.

                The building has been refurbished but the furniture in the room and toilet looks rather old. Staffs are great and the food choice is of variety. My son wanted ice cream, and we went for Ala Carte menu. The staff offered free ice cream instead of getting one from the menu, that is a great gesture.

Only issue is if the hotel could offer us better rates. We do understand when you paid peanuts you get monkeys if it's 3 or 4 Star hotel

                Great breakfast, nice pool, spotless room., with huge comfortable bed! Old world hotel with luxurious feel! The only downside was that it was a bit far from everything, however we got buses every day! Traffic and crossing the road was challenging.

                I'm always very particular regarding choosing hotel's when traveling either work or holiday. ”

                Making sure of the review by others first before making a booking. Had really a good and pleasant stays and a wonderful sea view is a real bonus. Roughly 1.5 km to the famous Gurney drive food paradise, the Gurney Paragon and the Gurney Plaza an added advantage staying in Evergreen Laurel Hotel. An added surprise is opening the fridge and found 3 cans of soft drinks, had to call the front desk to find out the price of the drinks and was informed it's free. A basket of free Apple's also surprised. I'm also very particular regarding the room service and found out it's one of the best in Penang, the room service staffs are friendly and always smiling. Regarding the breakfast, the coffee machine are very modern and user-friendly. Love the cappacino and coffee latte, it's the first time seeing a wonderful box of "Boh Tea" with varieties flavors. The Earl Tea is really the best. This the first time writing quite a long review commenting hotel. Hopefully will be able to stay again soon.

                Good Location”

                Despite this was the traditional type hotel, the location was good (food and shopping mall) and quite near to the heritage site (not walking distance, but you could grab). Used to be good sea view but the constructions in front of the sea was going on, so no beautiful sea view actually. The hotel breakfast was good.

                Clean and spacious except that the design is slightly old. The air-conditioner is less cold and the heater is not really working. Need to open for a while only feel warm but not hot.

                Stay at Evergreen Laurel, Penang met expectations”

                We spent 3 nights at the Evergreen Laurel in April 2019 and were favourably impresses by all of its facilities, including a large outdoor pool, a sizeable gymnasium and spa and a very large well-appointed dining room and buffet. The bedrooms were sizeable, quiet, clean and light with an excellent seaside view. Excellent advice from staff on tours, shop locations etc. evergreen Laurel has excellent nearby restaurants and is a 15 minute walk ( 2 minutes by car) from a major shopping Centre.
