Awesome Anniversary Trip

My husband and I went back to E&O last weekend for our proposal anniversary, which my husband did on 25 July 2013. We were given surprises each time we came back to the room. Started with the rose petals and lovely decoration on the bed and the anniversary cake. We enjoyed the exclusivity and privileges at the Planter Lounge which offering us happy hours canapé and beverages, also skipping the queue during breakfast.

Good quality hotel near to attractions in Georgetown

This hotel is beautiful both on the exterior and in-doors. The location is great - just on the ocean front, with a very serene atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful and the decoration of the room is amazing. Two minor points - the wifi service is not reliable, and the room stays cold even with the AC off. Breakfast is a wide array of options, including indian and malaysian. However, for our 4 days there, the options did not change. There is someone on hand to park and bring back your car from the in-hotel car park, which is very convenient if you have rented a car.

Amazing hotel with excellent service

The view is awesome and the room is heavenly. Spacious and with a view to die for. The breakfast was also good enough to cater for the different tastes. The planters lounge is an amazing place to chill at. One can just spend the entire day not going anywhere. Great place. Definitely going to stay in E&O of ever back in Penang again. The only not so ideal thing is the size of the pool

Romantic seaside grand hotel

Eastern and Oriental Hotel Penang is one of the best hotels we have ever experienced. The service,grandeur,size of rooms, and sumptuous breakfast at Sarkies Restaurant were unforgettable. Complimentary drinks each evening were most enjoyable and the infinity pool relaxing and beautiful. Above all the service to the guests created an old world feeling and we felt very pampered in our stay of six nights.

Faultless stay in stately hotel.

One of the best hotels we have stayed at, bearing in mind the reasonable cost in AUD. Room included buffet breakfast and a happy hour with free flowing wine, spirits and finger food every night. Enjoyed both of the swimming pools which were not crowded. Hotel exudes a formal, stately air however staff are very welcoming. Loved the photos around the corridors. Special thanks to the ever-present, ever-smiling Dean. We hope to return.

Fantastic hotel

We stayed at the Victory Annex which also has some of the classic style the hotel is known for but don´t forget to take a round trip at the Heritage Wing which is the original building of the hotel. Rooms are very fine except for uncomfortable chairs on the balcony. We also enjoyed the cocktail hour each day with free drinks and appetizers. Breakfast is incredible - especially the fresh juices made to order.
