We have been coming to the Copthorne Orchid for many years now and have always enjoyed our time here. The hotel may be a bit tired but it is gradually being updated. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They are cleaned daily, bedding and towels are changed on a daily basis and the tea, coffee and bottled water are also...

The location of the Copthorne is really great! Excellent Hawker stalls opposite and a fabulous view from our room. The hotel looks and feels very old, needs desperately a makeover. Room and bathroom were clean and spacious. Towels are old and it is so funny to see the soap dish glued to the vanity?? Upon check-in (after 14:00) we were...

My wife and I recently returned from a stay at the Copthorne Hotel. Being an older hotel with traces of its former days it did offer a very large room and bathroom with a fantastic sea view. The room whilst being a little tired and in need of a make over was more than adequate with free WIFI and a...

Upgraded my rooms but yet they are still old and tired. Things feel dusty, basin tap shaky, flushing system is weak, the bath towels are all small-sized. Only thing good is the strong water pressure and hot water. Nothing to offer around the hotel. We didn't make a good choice here for family vacation.

We stayed here for two weeks in a terrace room on the third floor. The room has a good uninterrupted view of the sea and the cruise ships going into George Town pier.The room is very tired looking, it's over 15 years since we last stayed here and very little improvement has been made. The towels and bedding should have...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the popular Tanjung Bungah beach, the hotel is one of the nearest beach hotels to the city of Georgetown. The sandy stretch, with rocks strewn intermittently against a backdrop of lush tropical trees and shrubs, makes the beach picturesque and unique. Here you have the luxury to choose sun or shade but what you will value most is the privacy, the tranquility and the safe sanctuary that we can offer you to be in complete harmony with Mother Nature. Hotel is close to several attractions in Penang i.e. Gurney Drive, Batu Ferringhi Night Market, Batu Ferringhi Beach, Spice Garden and Butterfly Farm. Guests of the hotel can relax away from hustling petty traders and the prying eyes of the public. It is the perfect getaway and stay from the hustle and bustle of city life, the perfect hideaway to get away from it all. Hotel has a 24 hour restaurant serving international and local cuisine, a Chinese Restaurant that features weekend and holiday promotions. Nearby the hotel are major shopping complexes like Tesco, Straits Quay, Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. Bank, clinic, food court, restaurants serving Western, Chinese, Indian, Korean, local and seafood cuisines are just within walking distance from the hotel. Hotel is nearby to major Hospitals. For relaxation, the hotel houses a Spa with separate female/male Jacuzzi and Sauna, offers attractive and interesting massage and treatment packages. ... more   less
