We arrived very early from our flight and sadly we were both unwell. I can't tell you how delighted we were to be allowed to go to our room early and take to our beds to recover. Thank you so much for that it meant we we able to recover and enjoy the next day. All the staff were wonderful & friendly wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Relaxing and awesome staff.

Had a wonderful time at this resort. Beautiful and well maintained gardens as well as very friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast was awesome and the best we have ever had. The only thing we would suggest that there should be no smoking around the pool area. The beds were fantastic and the rooms spotless.

10 days at Park Royal Penang

This hotel claims to be 5 star but I am thinking that may have been the case when it was built about 30 years ago. Definitely not 5 star now. Four star tops. We arrived at 3pm and our room was not ready. We had been flying since midnight and were tired so just wanted a room. A room was found but the view did not meet expectations (overlooking the tennis court and an old shed). We were moved to another room with a nicer but smaller room that we accepted. The next morning the bathroom floor was flooded from a constant dripping of water from the ceiling. Once again we were moved to another room. Third time lucky. We tried to book for the Sunday lunch but was told the whole restaurant was booked out by conference attendees. I complained that this was unfair to the other guests that were not part of the conference. Soon after a table materialised and we had a confirmed booking. When we attended the restaurant it was only about 75 full. On one occasion we had to ask for hand towels for our room as they had not been replaced during cleaning. The whole building was looking a bit shabby and is in need of a big refurbishment. Outdated carpets, faded paintwork and generally sprucing up is required. The cafe served average food and the service was very slow with meals arriving cold. The buffet breakfast was pretty good as far as buffets go. There was good variety with some changes made daily which was a bonus. Plenty of variety to please most tastes. The front office staff were exceptional. Going all out to provide service recovery. As were all the staff, very friendly and helpful. The internet access was good. We were disappointed with the TV channels. For a so called five star this was way below average. Channels were mainly limited to local and Asian viewers. Unable to access international sporting events other than European soccer. Limited English speaking TV programs and English news channels. To say the least, we were very disappointed with our experience at the hotel even though we enjoyed our rest.

Great weather and service

Excellent accommodation and service by all. Only thing that is an issue is the additional $$$$ on everything including each nights stay. Everything should be included in the one price, except for add ons like food. The pool bar couldn't get accounts right the whole time we were there. But they were very accommodating, loved the experience and would go back. Selma from the pool bar was wonderful.

Third time

Third time there. A very comfortable hotel in a great location. Pool area has great ambience and no shortage of seating areas in a nice setting. Great main pool. Kids pool not relevant to us, but was large and well patronised with a couple of twisting slides. Staff good. Will go again.

Good Spot

Very convenient location. Out the gate and numerous food choices left or right. Great pool. Good service. Plenty of choice at breakfast. Hill view rooms need a freshen up. Overall, easy 6 night holiday.

Room we stayed in had a water leak under the bed

For a five star we expected something better, but was a little disappointed with our room. (water leaked under the bed). Other than that, the service was okay, and the complimentaries good.

Relaxed by the pool

Very much enjoyed poolside ambience. Plenty of room to relax in a shady spot. Pool very clean and not crowded. Room had an enormous bed but room did not a lot of space. Staff very polite and friendly, especially at dinner service. Having left a cash deposit at reception on arrival and having prepaid the room for three nights, we were not impressed to receive a message under our door to contact reception regarding our account. After a meal in the restaurant we had spent more than our deposit. Surely this could have been resolved at checkout as is common policy. After all our passports and credit card for the room booking had been noted. Overall an inexpensive and relaxing stay marred by embarrassing hotel policy.
