Great short stay

You get what you pay for. This hotel is acceptable for the rates it charges. Bathroom amenities are very basic nothing extra such as moisturiser or razors. The housekeepers do a good job cleaning your room. Menu items are ridiculously overpriced, as expected. One downside of the hotel is that they describe their rooms as having a beach/ocean view. This is true, except for the fact that rooms facing East have a large apartment complex blocking the majority of the view. West-facing rooms have a clear view of the ocean. I unfortunately ended up with an East-facing room with a poor view.

Average hotel, value for $

Hotel is old but still well maintained, furnishings in rooms pretty dated but for the price guess can't complain. Probably catered more for local travellers, was surprised that there was no bar/lounge within the hotel to have a beer/drink in. Decent beach during lower tide infront of hotel to make use of. Buffet breakfast was just about average for a mid range Malaysian hotel. Hotel location is close to Ferringhi Beach about 12 mins drive where you can find nice beach bars, sea sports activities and about 15-20 mins to Gurney drive or Georgetown area.

Bora Bora Beach Bar at Batu Ferringhi Beach, nice beach frontage with most sea sports activities available, good location to catch the sunset, drinks reasonably priced, decent variety of food. Night Flea market very close by for a stroll through.

Room with Partial Seaview

All rooms come with partial seaview (diagonal view from balcony). Balcony equipped with table and 2 chairs for enjoyment of colourful sunsets if you request west facing room. A small strip of private beach should provide fun sand activity for family with smaller children. Room is spacious and easily accommodates an extra bed with cramping movement around. Buffet breakfast is generous with a variety of western/Malaysian choices. Swimming pool is a bit small and can be crowded during local holidays (was there during Hari Raya). Basement Car park has low headroom (MPVs have to park outside) and no lift provided to the lobbly (Luggage to be carried up 1 floor of stairs).

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you want to sample a wide variety of authentic Penang Street/hawker food, Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is a short 3km drive away. Parking is available at nearby Gurney Plaza Shopping Centre. A pleasant after dinner stroll along Gurney Drive savouring the cool sea breeze rounds up a great evening.

Bad entry point

The check-in is a hassle, the hotel policy is check-in after 2pm, we checked in at 2pm, but the room is not ready until 2.30pm and the bath towels comes at 4pm. Room is clean, amenities such as swimming pool is well maintained, which is a compliments given the hotel is fully occupied according to the front desk. Overall, would stay again provided it is off-peak season.

Second Stay

This is my second stay. Although the hotel is very basic, it suited and served my needs very well in terms of value for money and the location. However, I find the price of breakfast excessive as it is, and, as compared with some other hotels along Gurney Drive which charges only RM20.00 for a buffet breakfast with more variety of cuisine. I would have taken breakfast everyday for the duration of my stay if it had been that price. I will stay there again on my next visit despite the breakfast situation. Perhaps, it could be considered to include in the price like another hotel further up the road.

Very Very Disappointed and Would Not Recommend!

Hotel was not as shown on the website, in fact it was very old and the room smell plus the gym was in a very bad condition with 3 items only and all not working at all. The level which we stayed in was shabby and the carpet was really old and smelly. Bathroom sink and the bathtub stoppers was not working and we need to take them out before the water could be drain off. Their towel too was not clean with stains all over them.
