Great hotel in George Town Penang! In two for work for one night only. Long day at work and needed a relaxing nights sleep. I got it in this well appointed hotel. Outstandingly comfortable beds and great amenities. I will certainly stay here again. Big recommend.

Hubby called up to book for buffet lunch or dinner to celebrate my birthday. The person who answered the call told hubby that they do serve lobsters on their buffet table for both lunch and dinner. So he went ahead to book for buffet lunch. Upon arrival, to our dismay, we found that there were no lobsters on the buffet...

Wrote my feedback to the hotel but they treated my feedback like any other normal complaint and gave me a 5pax dinner as service recovery. I would advise wedding couples who wish to hold their wedding to be wary of the service provided. Below are the issues I faced: 1) room reservation not found in system during check in causing...
