Eastern And Oriental Hotel, Penang
Wonderful 1st class historic hotel
The hotel itself is beautiful, right on the water. Our room was very nice with a balcony overlooking the ocean. One of my favorite things in the room was the oversize deep bathtub perfect for soaking after a long day. The service was excellent. The breakfast buffet has something for everyone. The bed was very comfortable with excellent sheets, pillows and comforter. I have no real complaints at all. I would stay here again.

Very Good8.0
Four nights stay family vacation.
Lovely hotel & we had a pleasant stay. The only thing is that there were only towels for 2 people & we had booked for 3. We have to constantly ask for more towels. Other than that the staff were very friendly & the breakfast was wonderful.

Relive the days of the British Raj
A hotel experience which harks back to the days of the British Raj - the good parts, not the bad ones. Definitely an experience far removed from the antiseptic luxury of a Hilton or Le Meridien. The complimentary breakfast is one of the best we have ever seen anywhere in the world with made to order roti canai and char kway teow!

This is number one!
Great classic hotel that has been remodeled and expanded in the classic style. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Wonderful breakfast and late afternoon snacks and drinks.

Splendid hotel
This is a five-star hotel that deserves it's five stars - it is a splendid hotel. We loved our room, on the 15th floor of the Victory Annexe with a balcony and a view of the harbor. We had every amenity we could want. the design and furniture were top quality. Service was professional but not obsequious. Breakfast was plentiful and had enough variety to satisfy any food preferences. I would have happily stayed here much longer and would definitely stay here again when I next find myself in Penang.
