I think the airport transfer to/from hotel should be provided free of charge to hotel guests as the distance is only a few kilometers

Second time I book for a trip to Penang with [your website] and always good: you get what you pay for! (As I am also operating a dot com company in Thailand, it is a excellent feedback for online customers). As I am a very demanding, and a lazy traveler I can say that the Equatorial is a good hotel, with a great pool and very efficent staff: from laundry to room service, from operator to coffee shop and so on. Location 10 min from airport, position hillside hotel with Deluxe Room overlooking the golf course and the pool, with a big terrace offering a great view. (Ps. I got upgraded from a Superior Room which I book into). The hotel has excellent Fitness Center, also with Male/Female & steam/sauna separate bath with Jacuzzi etc. A business center with internet is there (and free)if you are traveling on business, as I was. Ciao

An attractive and spacious hotel. The architectural design is unusual and appealing. Pleasant garden surroundings. Service and food very good. Certainly a hotel my wife and I would be happy to return to.

• Hotel shuttle frequency could be inceased for guest travel • Add more local food to breakfast buffet • Good to add in free broadband service as value-added standard to business and holiday travellers

Wish the AC was colder but other than that, it was a nice hotel. We actually checked out of another resort and came back to this hotel.

Location is a bit far from the city town, and since taxi fare is not cheap in Penang, so have to consider the location carefully when travelling and rate is not competitive since other hotel in Batu Ferringhi provide better rate and included breakfast and here is none. So I will not choose this one next time.

The staff at the hotel were efficient, friendly and helpful. The hotel is very near the airport and convenient for a night or two, but too far away from George Town to make it a good base for a long stay in Penang.

Coffee Shop: Fruit Juices not fresh. Waiters - inattentive. Front Desk & Concierge - very helpful & responsive. Swimming Pool could have been cleaner(debris at bottom). Towels inconveniently located in Spa.

Beautiful Hotel with gorgeous grounds, and very nice comfortable rooms. That golf course and driving range is mediocre by US standards but very convenient.

This is really a 5 star hotel. Not only does it have it''s own mini-rainforest adjacent to the lobby, but the restaurants are wonderful too. Room was spotless and comfortable. The airconditioning really works too!<br><br> Try the Golden Phoenix for a very memorable meal. Order the "small" size. It is plenty for one. If you are really hungry order 2 small items. <br><br> Note that this hotel is not near the beaches. I was on business, so that did not bother me.
