My second and longer visit to Tanjung Bungah went well as I got a seaview room despite Chinese New Year, the reservation was made already in fall. The price had gone up from last year and I thought that meant some upgrading on the rather old fixtures and furniture, but no. I even heard rumors that the building might be...

The hotel rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The private beach is very good and clean. The pool and the restaurant by the pool is excellent. The staff are very welcoming and help full. The only minus point of the hotel is that they do not have a 24hrs laundry service. Its only one time in a day which was...

The 33 year old Copthrone Orchid Hotel was a total disaster and disappointment. Would advise fellow travelers to choose another hotel. We paid more to have a suite at this hotel to celebrate a special occasion. Our hearts sank when we were taken to our 'suite'. The room smelt damp, holes in the bedding, dirty grubby towels, toilet not flushing...

We booked in to Copthorne Orchid hotel for one night. Check-in was at 12pm, we arrived at 1pm and our room was not ready until 4. When we checked in we were given a room on the 12th floor, the room was very dirty, run down and full of bugs. There was mildew on the walls and in the bathroom...

I was very pleased with our room. Some review sites had cast doubts on hotel cleanliness but our room (602) had no such issues. Some might call the furnishings 'dated,' but I prefer to see them as nostalgic, seeing this hotel as "an aging grand hotel". No doubt it is aging, the bathroom countertop was scratched or stained and the...

We booked Copthorne Orchid (CO) after we booked Copthorne Kings in Singapore thinking that known chain hotels should have a good reputation. We're not after sophistication when staying in a hotel, but a clean, comfortable, and presentable facilities and rooms are our main focus. We're prepared to pay for a hotel with the expectation that the hotel will have the...

Now the negatives, room although clean in the places chambermaids can reach they really need a deep clean this goes to the maintenance of the hotel it all seems to be grubby including the carpets.

From the pictures and the reputation of the hotel of the same name in Cameron Highlands, the one in Penang sure is a pure disappointment. I am usually not a picky traveller, but when it comes to cleanliness, it bothers me so much. The room was aged, fair enough. Wifi keeps getting cut off every 2 minutes, never mind. 2...

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
