Short stay

We always stay here when we come back to visit family in Penang every year. As we are regular, they upgraded us to a much bigger room as the hotel was not very busy when we checked in. Location is v good if you don't mind walking in the heat to shopping centers & hawker center. It takes 10+ minutes. You can do early morning stroll along Gurney Drive. The room rate is reasonable but you have to pay hotel tax @ M$3 per day as extra when you check out. It is still value for money. Amenities are good with live band playing in the bar lounge at night. We enjoyed watching the guitarist playing solo in some of the songs. You can always request songs that have solo guitar section such as hotel California & black magic woman etc. All in all we enjoyed the stay.

Bed was filthy

Overall, Evergreen Laurel tries its best on the management level to provide good service. However, it fails to address cleanliness issues. We were disgusted with the bed - it sags and it looks so worn it is fit for the dump. We could see it was yellowing with dirt and sweat stains. The pillow was absolutely disgusting with stains. We asked for an extra pillow cover to cover over the existing pillow so we don't get to see the opening and the stains that put us off sleeping on the bed. It would be good if they change beds every few years or dress the beds with skirtings and line the beds with washable underbed covers so that guests see a clean bed. It is really important when you are on a holiday and at home, you are used to a certain acceptable standard.

Exceptional staff, no beach

Convenient location, helpful and patient staff, no beach access. Food court in mall nearby. Walk along the beach side of Gurney Drive to the mall to avoid drive-by bag snatchers. Night market near mall great variety of fresh food. Take hop-on hop-off bus outside rush hour to avoid long walks in the heat.

Great holiday

Booked 2 rooms for my family. Enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean, spacious and with good views of the sea. Location was excellent; within walking distance to 2 great shopping malls (Gurney Paragon and Burney Plaza) and the famous Gurney Drive food centre. Various other eating places along the street as well.

Comfortable stay

We booked 3 rooms for a 3-night stay. One of the rooms lights were not working well when we checked in. But the staff came to fix them after our feedback. Overall the room is spacious and the sea view is excellent. Gurney Drive hawker centre is only 1km away. Or if you are too tired to walk, Subway, Coffee Bean and Tea leaf & Starbucks are just one block away (Gurney Hotel/Tower).

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try the food at Bali Hai Seafood Market. They serve very fresh and tasty food but the fresh seafood can be overpriced. Always check with them for the price before ordering if not you may end up getting a shock when the bill is presented.
