We had a long stay there just as the Covid-19 crisis escalated. Overall the staff and management were very kind and accommodating given the circumstances. The location for seeing Georgetown is very good. There are a few excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. There is a functional gym and a nice pool. The beds are really large and excellent. Breakfast is fine, definitely for the price. I hope all the staff come through this crisis, we wish them all the best.

Nice. Very comfortable.
Goh, my2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The Hotel is located in a quiet area of George Town and the entrance is within an alley which leads into a wider area. The staff were friendly and helpful and provided helpful advice. My room had a smallish window, which I expected to be a bit bigger due to the Superior room status. Plenty of options for breakfast and spacious area. Located ideally a bit away from centre of town but within walking distance.

Well located on the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage sight, within easy walking distance of all the major attractions within the old town of Georgetown

Our room was fine. View of pier was great! We were not offered an upgrade. We had a bad experience at the pool one day which the Manager was to speak with us about and he never did. So this was disappointing. Overall our stay was great and we would try again

Good value and location. Friendly staff, reasonably clean rooms
LK, us5 night family trip
Fair 4.0
We came in at around 11.30am with a 6 month old and they refused to let us check in early although there were rooms available. Baby cot was also not arranged as requested. At 4.15pm day 2 our room was still not cleaned by housekeeping. We couldn’t wait so called to ask them to come and left the room for them to clean. When we came back they had removed one of our keys that was in the slot at the door. Won’t be coming back to stay again. Service is poor and room wasn’t that clean. There were mould stains near the sink
Ying, my2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
I had a nice spacious room which was lovely. My room was facing the pool rather than the street. I was expecting room facing the road. Staff generally very friendly and polite. The carpet was a bit dirty after few days of my stay. It should've been hoovered properly but generally it was a pleasant stay.
