Very Good 8.0
The stay is nice even we spent only one night. The jacuzzi is superb.

Always one of our favourites
Generally, rooms (and the bathroom!) are spacious. Facilities at level 7 are also great. Breakfast was reasonable (used to be much better). Surprisingly, they offered so many TV channels which was much appreciated as we just wanted to spend time resting in the room. I have stayed at this hotel before it was even officially launched (which is more than 10 years ago!). There have been improvements over the years but i think it is time for management to look into refurbishing the rooms if they want to be in competition with the rest of the hotels/resorts in Penang.

Fair 4.0
Okay this is one of my worse experiences in awhile. I got here and the moment I walked in it smelled like cigarette smoke, the front lobby looked very clean though so I thought maybe i’m wrong. When I got into the room there was dust all over the edges, the air-conditioning was not working, the floors were gross, and the toilet was not working. The staff did move me to another room, but when I got to the other room the couch had so many stains on it, I didn’t even want to take off my shoes because the carpet floors looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in years. I proceeded to ask for an extra sheet so that I could at least sit on the couch in some type of comfort. They were supposed to give me wi-fi, but the wi-fi from my phone was WAY faster than the wi-fi they provided. If that is even considered wi-fi, it was taking 30 second delays to get into pages, and I had a lot of work to do. So I was lucky enough I was able to tether from my phone. Otherwise I would of never been able to take care of work. Easily one of my worst 10 experiences in a hotel in my life, that says a lot from someone who spends 20% of their life in a hotel for the past 10 years!
