      Noisy Neighbors during weekends from the next building”

      The hotel is very good even though it is slightly further from the center of Georgetown. The only negative is the noise the neighboring hotel is making in the evening (past midnight, they are still blasting away on their top level in the open air). As my room is located always directly opposite, and on the same level as their noisy level, it is impossible to sleep. After I called the front desk, they agreed to change my room to the other side. Initially, the person in-charge wanted us to pack all our bags and change at about 1 am, which is totally unacceptable. He finally allowed us to move across and pack the rest of the bags in the following morning. What is shocking when I returned the original room key to them the next morning, the computer did not show that I have moved to a new room. In other words, the system did not show that I had moved, and the front desk workers could have checked-in other people to the new room that I am staying in. This is very careless.

Walking distance to mccallister road and to all the famous eatery at mccallister road. Easy to get grab if you want to travel further. Overall pleasant stay.

      Overnight Stay”

      Checking in and out was alright. Just stayed 1 night. Have stayed here couple of times. Everything was great. However, room for improvement is definitely the breakfast and the fridge cabinet in the room, is an odd place to hang and if one is not careful, will knock into the sharp corner. Location of the fridge cabinet is just next to the area where you place your luggage bag and the coffee tea maker.

      Room was rather dark and switch was misleading. It says ceiling light, BUT there weren't any. Called for maintenance, and had to wait 40min for them to come by, and to only find out, there IS NO CEILING Light. Aside from the mislead, Bed was comfortable, but there were yellow stains on blanket. Location is great! Staff friendliness were ok. Breakfast spread were just ok.

      There was a short power outage during my stay here. Called the concierge and was told that the maintenance team was rectifying the situation. Power came on and moments later the concierge still called to check if everything was back to normal. Enjoyed my stay here and definitely a good location for quick shopping at 1st avenue and dinner at new lane hawker.

      My family loves The Wembley ”

      We were thrilled to be given 2 connecting rooms on the 25th floor facing the Komtar - Penang landmark! The night scene from our rooms was lovely. The beds were very comfortable & we enjoyed chilling in the swimming pool after a hot day outing. The location of the hotel is superb, with so many malls within walking distance! We love the Wembley Cafe at level 2 : the ambience & of course the sumptuous buffet breakfast created by Chef Mr Peter Chan & his team. It's truly an enjoyment just by looking at the food presentation. Our dinning experience was enhanced by the professional and friendly F&B team: Mr Alvin, Mr Jerry, Miss Ee Sun, Mr Arif & a few more which I didn't managed to catch a glimpse of their name tags. Thank you & keep up your good work!

      St.Giles is tallest hotel in penang, view from our room is KOMTAR Building, and sea. My daughter love to stay in this hotel because they have free popcorn in reception. This hotel is very near to 1st avenue mall, and this mall connected to komtar and prangin mall, just walk turn right. If you turn left, we can get to GAMA supermarket, which have cheaper prices than others and also we can go to new lane food hawkers, macalister road zim sum which sell dim sum, atek durian...etc. Easy check in and check out.

      We had an exceptional experience. Each service delivered was followed thru with a service call, inquiring if everything was satisfactory. When we expressed disappointment that the pool was closed for repairs, the duty staff immediately offered access to its sister hotel's facility. Service staff at the lounges were attentive and took trouble to engage guests for feedback and small talk. The best for us was reserved on our last b'fast of our visit. After hearing previously that we missed having roti canai, the restaurant manageress initiated with the chef and surprised us with specially prepared off-the-menu, two sets of roti canai for each of us! We even had Chef's present at our table upon service. We were your average hotel guests but we felt exceptionally privillaged.
