    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!

    Very Good 8.0
    a little old dirty and smelly carpet close to swimming poll by guest made too much noise-need to be educated or reminded.

    Exceptional 10.0
    We have always visited the E&O on our trips to Penang but never stayed, and have said we will stay for several bays on our next visit. We have just spent 6 wonderful days there which were perfect. Our room, which was serviced every day, was spotless and very spacious and had a balcony overlooking the sea with great views across to the main land. The buffet breakfasts and buffet evening dinners were awesome as was the hotel in general. Staff were most friendly, helpful and courteous and provided a high quality of service. Will certainly stay again when we visit Penang.

    Heritage style, Penang.
    Great old and new hotel, Colonial style. Heritage wing will be renovated soon, where we stayed. Hope that it stays "Heritage" style. Loved our visit!
