disappointed

first and last time i think. firstly checked in delayed until 5.30pm i got my room key. claimed they needed time to clean up the room. gotten a baby cot with extreme fungus condition. bed linen dusty and my husband suspected was bedbug that he got bitten for few spots. as we were late for checked in and we requested checked out 1pm and was rejected rudely. Pool were dirty and cleanliness around the beach was not there. breakfast spread was good but the staff handling is seriously problematic(cleaning the curry gravy scoop inside the chicken soup pot, unbelievable how are they assume that i can stil use that chicken soup to feed my little children?). overall the front desk for checkin was pleasant with their attitude but service level in this hotel is very disappointing compared to others branded hotel.

Nice Family Vacation

Overall we have a perfect family time together, away from the usual shopping city life. Loads of water fun, however, the seaside is in the process of reclamation, which was a little disappointing. There is music till late night, so that is good, however, if you are travelling with babies, that might be an issue, but overall, staff was really good, services was fast, and the local there, very nice. We will be back there soon :D

Loved every minute of my stay.

From the first sight of Michael Jackson's statue out front of the Hard Rock Cafe joined to the hotel, I knew I was in the right place for my Penang break. I was right! The hotel was gorgeous, the room and amenities magnificent, and the staff friendly and helpful. It really spoiled me for staying anywhere else on Penang should I return.

Pleasant stay

Generally, a good hotel in a reasonable location. Room and facilities were good. There are some very reasonably priced restaurants outside the hotel, although there was not really much in the way of pubs and entertainment in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. Although, cheaper than Singapore, it was still fairly expensive to eat and drink at the hotel and associated Hard Rock Cafe (HRC). The band in the HRC was pretty good at night but, if you don't like smoking, you should be aware that they allow people to smoke in the place after 10:30 pm (and it gets pretty unpleasant if you are a non-smoker!!).

Overall the trip was OK. I was been upgraded to seaview room. The drawback of the stay was, the bed was not comfortable as it combine 2 single bed to be king size bed. No hair dryer in the room and the cleaner on clean the room upon request.

Wish we stayed longer

My wife and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon, and wish we had more time here. The staff were great, especially in accommodating our request to stay in a quieter part of the hotel. The Lagoon Deluxe room is highly recommended. Being able to wake up and dip right into the pool - bliss. Great pool bar, friendly staff - we both loved our stay there. Highly recommended.

Great Hotel

Originally booked a hill view room but once we got there decided change to the ocean view. Front desk made the change and within minutes we were in our room. Great, fun hotel. Amazing pool and facilities, including restaurant, bar, gym. There was a shuttle which took you further into Batu Ferringhi Beach. Would highly recommend this hotel. Especially the oceanview room.

Worst hardrock

Reception was so crowded... No one controlled... The staff server next customer first while I was waiting. Serve check out guest first, no matter what how long I was waiting for my check in. No serve for my welcome drink. The wifi was really slow... Swimming pool is full of kids... So crowded. Noisy... Also the bar staff keep force me to order drinks. So annoying!!! I want to order drink when I want to drink. The worst part is house keeping!! They forget to make empty rubbish bin... I never recommend Hard rock pennang...
