Stayed here for three nights in a room with the sea view. What I love about this hotel: excellent location (walkable, short ride to all major attractions), the sea view, the local restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, the buffets at the hotel, the friendly and helpful staff, and the reasonable room rate!!! Highly recommend it!

The very good point about this hotel is its location on Gurney Drive. Near to all attractions yet facing the sea. However, there is some constructions carry on at the sea bed thus the view is slightly obstructed. Not too much of a bother though. They have nice swimming pool, sauna, steam, Jacuzzi, lounge (with live band) etc. Almost everything...

The room is good too. I stay in this hotel for business purpose and therefore I am unaware of any family activities in the...

Its been quite some time since I last stayed at Evergreen Laurel in Georgetown. This was my favourite hotel many years back when I used to frequent Penang Island for my business trips. In a typical month I would have stayed there several times and I have also been alone in my trips. Hence, in my recent visit back to...

As for local Food, you...
