Old but gold
This is an old hotel. I'm not sure when was it opened, but i remembered staying here when i was in primary school back in the early 90s. I remembered having a great time staying here as a kid back then. Nowadays, I still have fun staying at this hotel with my kids in tow. The building, although is old, is still being maintained fairly well. The landscaping, pool, etc still looks good. The services received from the staff are top notch. During this stay, we booked the deluxe room which is located at the annexe building, not the main hotel building. It is quite a bit of a walk from the reception and pool area. The room furnishings were also is a bit dated, but are maintained fairly well. The only complained I had was that the shower head is a bit broken and loose, making it impossible for me to adjust the angle and shower mode. We also had problems with the key card for both of the rooms we booked where the door keep rejecting our key card and we had to wait for the hotel staff to come and fix it, only to have the same problem occurring again. Another issue that people might find a bit annoying is the car park which is quite a bit of a walk from the lobby. However, these issues to me are very minor compared to the good time that we had at the hotel. We love the pool, the location, the view from the hotel, etc. We would definitely come back in the future. And yes, if possible do spend a bit more and book the superior rooms that are located in the main hotel building. The interiors are more modern and it's nearer to the pool and car park.

bit tad disappointed
i am a regular at equatorial penang, however thia recent trip was quite disappointing in few areas. 1. at check in, my booked room was given wrongly. i booked executive suite but was given premier suite. 2. Executive suite was supposedly better than premier suite, yet the room was old, air con was faulty and not cold. the hallway leading to the room is smelly with cigarette smoke smell. 3. one particular lady staff working at the reception at around 530pm 19th aug, was just plain ignorant and of bad service. me and another guests approached her at the same time, she attended the other, and walked off leaving me without even communicating with me what i should do. So i stood there 20mins wondering if she is coming back or not, until another guy receptionist Yudi noticed i was standing there puzzled what to do, and came to my assist. He should be praised, and the girl warned.

Easy accessible to other part of Penang
Its on the other side of the island and if you want to make a trip to Georgetown this will be far. Nevertheless, book this hotel if you are at this area. Recommended

A last minute booking
Basically, this hotel is located on top of a small hill and next to Penang golf club. The environment and staff is superb but 30mins away from downtown (Gurney drive). No convenience store is nearby i mean within 15mins drive. This is an old style 5 star Malaysia standard hotel. Anyway, i will not staying in this hotel again if i have other choices of hotel due to location and hotel overall design purpose.

Beautiful hotel with helpful staff. All rooms comes with a balcony and view is amazing. Rooms are spacious and I love their IPTV. Lots of movies to choose from. The location is a bit far from malls but they do have shuttle service which is a plus point. In all, I'm happy and will visit this hotel again.. Kudos team!
