helpfuk staff, affordable

quite difficult to get there since no clear sign board guiding us non penangites, but thanks to mr. Google map, we manage to get there with ease. But the cars were not so lucky and had to drive around up to bayan lepas and ask people for directions. The check in was fast and the staff made it easy eventhough there was quite a long que. The room was okay and clean, with bathtub in bathroom. Please remember to slot in your room key card into the card slot in the elevator before you press the desired level. Otherwise you will not be going anywhere. I like the variaties they offered for breakfast, especially the veggie lasagna. Yummy!

Overall wonderful experience. The hotel was newly renovated and the service was superb. We had a beautiful room facing the golf course, on the higher floors. Breakfast was adequate, with good juices and coffee provided. Close proximity to Georgetown and Bayan Lepas. The Bukit Jambul shopping complex is walking distance away.

Nice and clean hotel”

The newly renovated hotel,big room and many parking bays

This hotel is just bought over by YTL company and its just finished renovating so everything is new here. The 3 bedrooms are big with king size mattress. 2 of the bedroom comes with bathroom and only 1 is without bathroom but the public bathroom is just outside of the rooms. The suites comes with a dining area with tables for 6 and living area comes with a sofa + 51 inches lcd tv. Also there is an extra reading and ironing room for your comfort which is equip by coffee. All the area comes with aircond unit to ensure the area is keep cool during your stay. The only shortage is it doesn't comes with a kitchen. Others than that I'm satisfied with this suites. To reach the apartment suites, you will need to take the lift from the lobby to 2nd floor where the pool is located and than change lift to excess to the apartment block with your access card so the security is good. Also there is an executive lounges for the suites guess. The carpark is available free at the basement floor and exit with your rooms access card. So keep the access cards with you sll time where it access almost everywhere. Brilliant idea. The breakfast is nice and children belows 4 years old eats free. There should have compliment it to children below 10 or 11 years old. But its still cheap if charge which is rm20 per child. The swimming pool area comes with a kids pool and adult pool but the adult pool is to small may be a quarter of the olympic size which is a rurn off for swimmer. But the pool area is shaded as its headed to the north direction so you wont feel hot even in the afternoon. The hotel location is close to the penang second bridge and with many shopping complex surronded. Driving to the town will takes you 15 - 20 minutes with normal traffic. Overall worth to stay.

2-Bedroom Suite, Clean, Spacious”

We booked a 2-bedroom suite and expected it could fit 4 people inside. However, when we check-in, we were told that the suites for 4 pax were full; The suite that we got only had rooms with a double bed and super single bed. Front desk staff compensated us with a double Deluxe room, but it is located in another block of the building. There was nothing we could do except to accept the arrangement. Since it was a family trip, in the end we fitted 2 pax into the super single bed, and got breakfast vouchers as compensation instead. My take is, if the hotel has two different types of 2-bedroom suite, then they should be two different room types on Agoda! Plenty of parking spaces in the basement of the hotel. There was no escalator / lift, so you'll have to walk one floor up to the lobby. Breakfast was satisfactory, not worth the price of RM42 per pax. (We used our breakfast vouchers.) This is a decent and affordable hotel in Bayan Lepas that I will come back to. I will remember to check with the hotel first whether the room type that I choose is available before booking via Agoda.

The duty manager still recognize me from my last stay. The room was very comfortable especially its signature bed and pillow. Plenty of power outlets for your gadgets. However, the Complimentary WiFi was a bit slow. we need a faster one. The breakfast was good and the variety was well balance. Really enjoy staying here and will come back soon. Shamshul

No frills hotel with top-notch service”

Comfortable and well-maintained hotel - Great value for money!

Once we arrived at the hotel, the check-in duration did take some time despite there wasn't a line at the counter. In addition, the hotel was out of twin bed rooms due to high occupancy. But the wait and 'bad news' was worth it because we were compensated with a free upgrade for one of the rooms booked. From the outside, the hotel looks like it is in very much need of an update but it is spotlessly clean, and thats all you want! Once indoor, you will be pleasantly surprise on the top-notch condition of the hallway and rooms. Clean towels everyday and wide choices of room service menu, it is a great welcome after a long day's work. The beds are really comfy too! We enjoyed evening entertainment in the club at the hotel's highest floor. Good service by the bar manager who stayed for a bit to chat. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again during my next visit to Penang.

Affordable, Comfort and Luxury

The lobby staff was very friendly as i check in. The porter was very kind to carry our luggage although we only have little luggage. We stay at top floor (15th floor) but the lift was fast to reach from lobby. Room and Interiors was the best that i ever stayed in all Malaysia Hotels. Their fittings and deco was modern which match the four star hotel. Breakfast buffet was OK to me although very little choice but they do provide all the famous like roti canai, nasi lemak, pancake and etc but taste was not too bad. Location was in the residential area in Penang Island. The view from window was magnificient. If public transport in Penang is very convenient then this hotel can be recommended or else have to have a car.
