Amazing rooms and decor, great service, great food
We spent 2 nights at the Macalister Mansion and loved it. The decor throughout the common areas is spectacular. They have a whiskey and cigar lounge with a great selection if that's your thing, but food in the restaurant is delicious and reasonably priced. We didn't get the chance to check out their fine dining option, but I'm guessing it was good too. The bar is a great place to have a drink, and the wine selection is good. Service was excellent, pool was nice, room was delightful, and mini bar was complimentary, what more can you ask for?

The Best hotel in Penang !!
This is a very Chic 8 suite boutique hotel which has the coolest and chic decorations of all the hotels in Penang. The bar area reminded me of Sketch's in London with all the quirky decor items. It is the most expensive hotel in Penang but well worth it for the experience!! The cafe is an excellent place to spend the lazy afternoon with some tea/coffee and the tasty pastries. And of course the fine dining restaurant is the place to go to impress your guests in Penang with its chic decor and expensive set menus and fine wines.

One of the best design hotels
The service of this hotel was superb! Couldn't ask for more. The interior was exactly the same as the photo as shown on the website. Especially good for couples who are planning for their honeymoon trip.

Very Good8.0
The hotel rooms certainly have the wow factor, so I guess the saying you pay for what you get holds true. The only disappointment was the smell of cigar smoke in both of the bar areas, we thought it was restricted to the whiskey bar. The hotel is small so relies on outside guests, a lot of the time we were the only guests in the bar/pool area which meant it lacked a bit of atmosphere. The hotel staff were helpful when asked but didn't really give any insights into things to do, places to eat/drink outside of the hotel.
