Stayed at the G Gurney hotel "seaside" which was fantastic. We paid a bit extra for the executive lounge which was well worth a relaxed drink and a few nibbles after a long day of being out and about. The lounge provides soft drinks and a few wins a d spirits. Every member of staff have met have been fantastic and sooo helpful. Would like to say a big thank you to Tinesh the F&B Supervisor who was very helpful with our evening meal. The hotel reception is on the 3rd floor however on the ground floor is the Gurney Plaža shopping center where are is a food court with lots of lovely local foods plus McDonald's as well as KFC :). Branded items are available at the plaza however prices are very similar to home prices (UK). Must try the Buddhist temples, Spice Garden, Botanical gardens (watch out for the monkeys who scout for anything in a carrier bag), the cable cart to the mountains top (must have a drink at the David Brown bar, reasonably priced).

Hotel's Favourite
We had a pleasant three-day stay at this hotel. The hotel is in an excellent location, situated between two large malls with plenty of shops and restaurants and within a reasonable cab ride to both George Town and Batu Ferringhi. The room was quite spacious but a little bit dated and worn down. It could use a refresh. The bed was very comfortable, however, and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. We enjoyed using the beautiful infinity pool. Service was friendly and efficient. One area that could use improvement is the breakfast. Although there is a good variety of items offered, many just weren't very tasty. The best thing on the buffet was the homemade ice cream. Overall, this is a good place to stay when exploring the island of Penang.

All good except hotel seemed still undergoing upgrading and renovation. The room that was assigned to my stay - it was right next to another room that was still under upgrading (door kept open with a gap to air the glue smell).

I booked G Hotel for my family holiday as this is what I used to stay whenever in Penang. And it's conveniently located at Gurney, accessible to Plaza and Paragon makes thing easier. Love the XL Suite that comes with kitchenette and washing machine, very handy when you have two babies in tow.

G hotel Gurney in Penang is a large luxury hotel situated about 40 minutes from Penang airport north of the city on the coast. However the area in front of the hotel is currently being reclaimed so in the future (by the end of 2023 ) the hotel will no longer be on the coastal promenade. I stayed there for two nights speaking at a major conference and found that the main room and breakout rooms were large, spacious, well air conditioned and there was an excellent provision of necessary materials. Catering throughout the hotel was outstanding and a colleague and I particularly appreciated the free flow dinner which enabled us to access a very full buffet and whatever drinks we chose. My bedroom was large and spacious with a desk for working, conveniently UK sockets and everything else you would expect from a hotel of this standard. It was a shame there was no bath though, only a shower. The outside large swimming pool was delightful – if a little public – but it was a nice experience to cool off and do a very small amount of sunbathing after a long conference day. Reception staff, and indeed all hotel staff were courteous, helpful, and attentive. However, we became irritated in the restaurant buy waiters persistently asking us if we would complete their online feedback form!

Great hotel, great service, great location. I was here for a quick business trip and really appreciated the hospitality. The bar (G Spot) in particular was filled with wonderful staff willing to go above and beyond to make me feel at home. I particularly enjoyed getting to know Buma who was a very nice bartender and made one heck of a delicious martini (among other things)
