Staying here for 20nights. Into my 5th night, and there’s no hot water. Called reception, and maintenance says that there is a limited time for hot water, 5am-9am and 5pm-9pm. That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. And all they can say is Sorry. Poor maintenance is all I can say. You should inform your guests on all your limitations upon booking so we can make an informed decision.

Me and my cousin sister stayed in a standard room that have 2 single bed. We liked the room condition, the toilet is very clean and the view when we slide the curtain is nice. It was quite convenient for us to find food as many restaurant and hawker stalls nearby.

(visited early March, before lockdown) I suppose the Covid-19 certainly has the whole tourism industry gone quiet. Morning breakfast was peaceful. Only those on work duty, travels. Only seen a couple who appeared to of non-work related. Breakfast was of nice selection – porridge, Asia style, a little lesser on Western style – limited ham selection. The chef counter, though serve really nice over-easy egg. There are others choices too – noodle, rice bowl. There is dim sum too, though only for the non-fussy taste. Room was nice and large, only a square design shower room in mine, not sure there is bathtub type available. Pool size is for a few swim strokes in length but good enough to enjoy quiet, relaxing time, I suppose. Gym though has a nice selection of machines. Would be nice for a serious workout. The conceige gentlemen were attentive and helpful. The reception were efficient too except for an encounter, who was probably new when a second check-in was needed. Temperature was also taken at check-in time, I suppose it as precaution to Covid-19 check. Location is wonderful. Turn a corner at the next building, you’ll see lots of choices of restaurants and a karaoke too. There is even a nice wine bar cum restaurant too. Good access to bus stops and there are hotel shuttles to FTZ, Queensbay mall and airport. It is about 5 minutes to Penang Golf Club too although the management there appears to concentrate more on restauranteer than golf course and club activities/sports.

Stayed at the hotel for a week in Feb 2020, was there on business. Rooms were comfortable but the desk chair was a bit creaky. Shower was very good, constant hot water temp (not fluctuating like in some other hotels I have encountered), good water pressure too. Toiletries was simple body wash/shampoo but it's also nice to use. Breakfast could have been better in terms of variety of food but considering the price, I would say it's decent and acceptable. The complimentary shuttle service from the hotel to the factory at Bayan Lepas in the morning is a plus point!
