    Fair 4.0
    Inconsistent Service
    This was for my honeymoon. We stayed in the heritage wing. Upon checking in they insisted they had no room with 1 bed even though that is what we booked. A manager had to come in to help us get the room we paid for. After that we asked if there were available room upgrades to which they said yes. We informed them we are gold members and it was at this point the receptionist tried to convince us we don't need an upgrade even thought we are eligible but that our room was better than the upgrade. It was late and we were tired so we settled for none. When we got to the room we realized that the pillows were smelly. They smelled like sweat even though the sheets smelled clean. The next morning when we walked to breakfast we got some people telling us good morning and others ignoring us. The level of service for such an expensive place just wasn't here. Knowing that we had 20% discount on spa and food we charged everything to the room. When we were checking out we had to take more than 2 hours of back and forth for the manager to settle that we deserved our discount. We got many excuses originally on why they couldn't do it. Eventually we did get our 20% but it took too much time and effort. This hotel needs better service for the price. There were some positives but they aren't worth mentioning. With a hotel of this price and reputation they need to do better.

    Very Good 8.0
    Service is just like anywhere else in Asia. There isnt that upper level of service here. Wasnt given cutlery with my food when at the pool, i had to go find it myself. The room staff were great however. Food for breakfast is great too.

    Old style charm
    Great old style hotel with old fashion charm. Although service was impersonal, everyone was very polite and appropriate. The daily fruits and evening reception was appreciated. Some updates needed include more power outlets near the bed or USB ports, better quality slippers, more seating by the pool and a shuttle service to the local malls.

    Wonderful time at E&O Hotel, scrumptious international buffet to die for! Helpful, welcoming staff. This is our second time back at this hotel. Our stay was much too short. We definitely will be back.

    Great Stay
    It was a business visit, but I would have stayed here on a personal visit too. Great water views, elegant and clean rooms, excellent service, and walking distance to most downtown highlights.

    Lovely stay at a beautiful hotel
    A beautiful hotel, very clean and comfortable; staff were very friendly and helpful. A few minor items needed attention in the room which we reported to the lady at checkout but she did not seem very attentive to our feedback so was not sure if these will be rectified. Front desk was also not fully knowledgeable in advising us on some of the tourist spots, eg was not familiar with the reclining Buddha temple & informed U.S. incorrect closing times at Kek Lok Si, which meant we missed seeing the key spots before closing time.

    Forget Batu Ferringhi, stay at the E&O!
    The standard of the suite was lovely. However it would have been better to have two armchairs rather than just the one. The staff were almost always polite, friendly, helpful and efficient. We enjoyed happy hour on the sixth floor, but the staff appeared less experienced (requests forgotten, hot water delivered instead of iced water etc.). The Malaysian food at Planters was exceptional. The breakfast buffet and staff were wonderful - especially the freshly cooked roti, dosai and char kway teow. We will recommend the E&O to our friends.

    Excellent Morning Yoga Class
    Amazing Service and we always participate in the Morning Yoga Class conducted by Michelle to start the day. Michelle is professional and the exercise was catered to our ability. Her cheerful disposition made our day!

    a little old dirty and smelly carpet close to swimming poll by guest made too much noise-need to be educated or reminded.
