Georgetown Heritage Boutique Hotel”
We spent a long weekend at the hotel and were very much welcomed by the professional staff. The hotel itself was beautifully designed and the decor and ambience transported us to another time and place. Together with the excellent and friendly service from everyone, it made for a relaxing and memorable time. A special thank you to Nurul, Jason, the bar team (who made excellent cocktails), the waiting staff and the cleaning crew for always being accommodating, helpful and friendly. The only reason we have not given it 5 stars is because it does not have the full facilities of a 5 star hotel otherwise this is a lovely and luxurious place to stay in order to live the heritage Georgetown experience. After reading some of the less than positive reviews here, I think it is fair to say that this more of a getaway luxury boutique hotel for couples, friends or families with older children rather than a business or a family hotel for young families.
I was choosing between the Oriental & Eastern and Seven Terraces when I booked and glad I chose the latter. Not only the obvious reason of its exquisite style and history, but also for its location and hospitality. Seven Terraces is located at the heart of George Town, what one could consider as downtown. It is in walking distance from the Peranakan Mansion. Having a convenience store nearby is also a plus in this area of town. The furniture setting is dated with heritage like it's suppose to be and the restaurant Kebaya is one of the most extravagant Nyonya dining experience. But above all, it's the personal details that made a difference. If you are in for an exotic experience with all the services expected from a five star hotel, look no further.
Great location in the heart of Georgetown, stunning building that had been very beautifully restored and rooms were very generous size. We loved our stay. Just be careful of wiring , while charging my headphones were zapped
A very nice heritage hotel.”
The hotel is converted from 7 old shops built in Southern China architectural style. We lived in a duplex room well designed and decorated in old styles. If you like heritage buildings, this is an ideal choice for you. The hotel also has a very nice restaurants serving fusion food.
right in the city centre of Penang!! We were able to walk everywhere and the staff was super friendly. The main entrance is a bit hidden and actually on a side street but we were able to just enter through the restaurant.
Incredible Straits Period Boutique in the UNESCO Area”
The attention to detail and sensitivity in the restoration of this block of houses into a single hotel unit is truly remarkable. The overall ambience and the split level balcony rooms truly conjure up the feeling of what a Peranakan home would have been like at the turn of the C20th. Management team of Wendy and Robert very friendly, informative and knowledgeable. No in house a la carte menu which is a bit frustrating, but obviously the area around Chulia St is teaming with great local food - the Won Tee Noodles and Char Siu restaurants recommended were fabulous. A wonderful establishment and certainly one I would recommend for the experience for those with an interest in the culture, heritage and history of Penang.
Historic and welcoming! Highly recommended”
based in the historic heart of UNESCO listed George Town..the boutique hotel has been lovingly restored. The beauty of the accommodation is matched by the personal service rendered by warm representatives...Robert,Jane, Wendy just to name a few. It's home away from home ...very sweet aftertaste...
One of the best hotel in Asia ”
We had a pleasant stay at the Seven Terraces. It is located at the heart of Gerogetown, right next to St. George Church. Walkable distance to most of the tourist attractions. Hotel is very beautiful and staffs are very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Wendy and the entire crew. Breakfast is very very delicious too. Will definitely come again.
This is one of the best small hotels I've stayed in and the best hotel I've stayed in Malaysia outside the big 5 star international chains in KL. There was a mix up with my booking which was handled with grace and generosity. The staff in general are very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was amazing. The property is lovingly maintained and finished and very very clean. I can see why this hotel reviews so well and I didn't get the feeling the hotel will rest on their reputation alone. Highly recommended.
Luxury stay in a heritage site!”
The room gave you a luxurious feel when you stepped into it. The hotel was equally great. Convenient carpark, and great location to explore the heritage area surrounding the hotel. And the famous Kebaya restaurant which I hope to try it out next time. Overall, highly recommended!
Awesome small boutique hotel”
Seven Terraces much much beyond our expectation, it really value for money. We stayed at Stewart Suite, it was very spacious. The living room equipped with TV, sofa & even an opium bed located upstairs of the room while bedroom & bathroom located at downstairs. The bathroom was too big equipped with an awesome ceiling height shower. They also provided complimentary tea & local"kuih" when we chilling out at the poolside during tea time. The breakfast was so delicious and you can order as much as you can if your stomach is big. The friendly staff made our stay so memorable and definitely we will be back.
Quite a surprise!”
We travel extensively and are not often amazed by hotels, this place is wonderful and very well done. Ewan the manager is informative, friendly and very helpful. Service is discreet but excellent. Non pretentious luxury in informal but fantastic surroundings. Definitely worth another visit. Their sister hotel does the best Indian food I have ever had, simply amazing and cheap. On Muntra Street 3 mins walk. A breath of fresh air that the corporate chains will not compete with. You are immersed in history as you step through the door a huge credit to the owners and team who look after their guests. Fantastic
The first thing I notice is the friendliness of the staffs. They were genuinely friendly and always ready to serve. We took the apartment which was obviously huge for us and our 2 young ones. They love the swimming pool, surprisingly. Location is good and surrounded by the best of the local cuisines in Georgetown. Breakfast was awesome and prepared fresh. Not buffet style. All in all, highly recommended for anyone looking for unique boutique style of hotel!
Best and Must-Try”
This is a private boutique hotel with only 14 maisonette rooms if i am not wrong. The design was amazing,and was a fusion between modern style and traditional peranakan style. The British style breakfast included in the package tastes good. The staff are nice and help full. I departed from Penang in a public holidays when my car rental company is closed on the day. I just left the key to the hotel reception and they are trustable and kind enough to help me return the key to the staff of car rental.
historical family fun”
We are in awe with the design on this hotel. Very unique. Located in the heritage zone. Staff are friendly and attentive but it would be even better to have a staff who can converse in Mandarin. Room is very spacious and comfortable. Will definitely return to this hotel again.
Awesome location, superb design, attentive staff”
My wife and I stayed there this past weekend and Seven Terraces impressed us from the very get go. We were particularly impressed with the attentiveness of the staff (especially Faizal and Massi - hope I got their names right) and they were very accommodating with regard to our check out timing as my wife needed somewhere to stay while I was at work. The missus was particularly impressed with the design of the bathroom and said it was the best rainshower she ever had. Seven Terraces is also right in the heart of Georgetown and the main historical/cultural pathways (where they have Penang's now famous street art)are well within reach. Plenty of good food and not to mention cafes around, so you'll be spoilt for choice.
Boutique Hotel from historical houses ”
Our stay at 7 Terraces was certainly one of the highlights of our Malaysia "heritage trip". The hotel itself is built from 7 adjacent Peranakan-Chinese houses. It offers a personal atmosphere and staff and management are very helpful to provide all hints, descriptions and means for discovery tours in and around Georgetown. The pool is nice but a little small for real swimming. The rooms are fabulous with a large rainshower bathroom and antique furniture.I can absolutely recommend this hotel!
This is a meticulously restored set of old Straits Chinese shophouses. The rooms are at two levels, with a large living area downstairs and a bedroom section upstairs. The bathroom is spacious and nicely tiled, although it misses a tub. The furnishings are authentic, and there are antiques everywhere. The hotel also allows you to buy most of their antiques. Most of all, the service was outstanding. The manager knows everyone by name, and the staff reach out to help with the smallest detail.
Amazing stay, great service!”
Seven Terraces is a really, really, lovely place to stay in, just like the pictures shown! The hotel room is decked out in straits Chinese / Peranakan glory without compromising on comfort. I love the design of this hotel, from the double-decked room, to the very spacious toilet/shower area cleverly set in the balcony! I have to commend on the really lovely staff in this hotel. They are very friendly and ever so ready to dispense tips on good eating areas, questions about the hotel's designs, etc! We felt right at home with the fabulous staff! Unfortunately I didn't quite get to capture their names..
The hotel is nice decoration and very fantastic .”
The hotel very good design and decoration, all staff are friendly and helpfully when require. The hotel is very closed to the local restaurant easy to walk and very quiet in the night time , we are feel safety when stay here feel like a stayed in the house not hotel. We will be back to stay at seven terrace again when we visit Penang.
