    Superb

    Good location with reasonable price. The most I liked is the buffet breakfast and a lot of choice. Using the room card only allow the residence staying here and I feel like More safety staying in this hotel .

    So far so good only the other days when checked in one of the staff not sufficient enough. As I told her I book 2 room and she keep on saying one room. First time when I check in the staff is good and she told me only one room can checked in and the other room not ready yet as the cleaner is still doing cleaning. Then is ok .. After we back from shopping we checked in the other room and I present the I c for the staff and the staff still said I only made one room reservation not 2 room .. And I was surprise why like that .. She checked again still said no . And I told her Cannot be as this morning I checked in the staff told my room reservation is 2 room. Then I inform the staff the room reservation is under name that I present you the ic then only she realize. In this situation .. Actually this is not a problem the only thing that I feel your staff not concrete on this matter. What for I present ic for the staff and she not follow the ic name for checked in purposes.. On that time I and my friend carry so many heavy thing that your staff not realize and we are standing at the counter for noition talk .. a bit waste time .. Sorry not complaint and pleSe improve thank you

    Good location. Recommend request "room facing sea-view" from 8-12 floor for a good sight. Clubbing area within 2mins walk. 24hrs indian restaurant, taxi hub & convenience store just opp hotel.

    RM200+ p/n in average good hotel, no breakfast inclusive quite an overrated pricing. WIFI at RM10/hr...

    Too costly not worth for the amount paid. I had booked the tickets on net with the rate said as 185rm then I had to pay by cash after reaching there as the payment was not accepted. Then to my surprise on cash payment I was told the charge is 197rm at the time of booking and was asked to pay another 100rm as advance. The worst part was that on vacating the room the rate came to 215rm.

The worst part was that on vacating the room the rate came to 215rm with the lame excuse that its taxes. I had to finally pay the amount to vacate, with the family it was a horrible experience. I feel cheated, I should have taken the opposite hotel which was half the price giving the same facilities with breakfast.

    The air condition was very efficient. The lighting was good.

    The room we were in had a strong smell of musk upon entering. The placement of the shower was at an akward angle making showering very difficult. The wash basin needs a good scrub!

    Fabulous

    The distance between the famous local food stalls is just within 300 meters. The Asian Heritage is nearby too if you would want to walk around and experience the old Penang style.

    Very good

    The parking is hard especially during the night time. The management should reserve the parking to the hotel guest rather than those coming in for function purpose.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The location is very suitable for getting around.

    1.The breakfast could be better. The Evergreen Laurel has the beach as its attraction and serves up a sumptuous buffet and larger room for cheaper. 2. The toilet seat and bathtub in room 1004 that I stayed in had burnt cigarette stains despite it being a non-smoking room. 3. The night I arrived there was no parking in the hotel as there was an event which is quite inconvenient as I had luggage with me.

    Good

    The parking space is limited and very narrow. My car was bang by another car on the side while it was parked at the hotel. Only realised the damage when I went into the car in the morning.

    Exclusive

    The location is closed to eating places i.e. famous nasi kandar etc. Buffet breakfast was excellent, although the hotel was packed due to the long holiday, the staff were very accommodating. The food was unexpectedly great, we thought with the price of the room we pay, the breakfast would be so-so.. but it turned out differently (excellent). I would return here if coming to Penang again.

    The pool is rather small, but the jacuzzi pool is nice.

    Very good

    The pool is good and my daughter had a good time swim in it. The room is cozy even though a bit cramp with 2 single beds. Easy access to all kind of eatery.

    The room is a bit small

    Fabulous

    Good location, convenient and very comfortable.

    extra charge for adjoining room based on the reason that its slightly bigger. I personally feel that its not a good policy of the hotel.
