Stayed for 4 nights with two kids under 5. We found the Hard Rock to be a very relaxed and super family friendly hotel. Our kids loved the water slides and we popped them into the (free) kids club when it was time for a break from the pool. Our room was spacious and had an ocean view (4th floor)....

The Hard Rock Penang is a great option if you are looking to relax on the beach, the pool and facilities are excellent. The service was first class, and rooms well appointed.

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and everything was as we expected it to be - our standard room offered everything we needed, the pool was large enough to have a bit of privacy, and who can beat the beachfront location? There were lots of families, understandably, since the pool had waterslides and shallow play zones. If we...

I am very pleased to stay here after some issue on room reservation on last December. Your sales didn't explain detail that surcharge will be induced on school holidays while I purchased the voucher. I have to spend the holidays only on Sunday to Monday as all room for January Fridays are fully booked. Service is excellent, very friendly staff.

Spent from 1/1/17 to 18/1/17 with my 17 yr old daughter. Second time at Batu Ferringi but first at Hard Rock. Staff throughout hotel excellent and the Spa was first rate. Occasionally servicing of our room was less than 100% with dirty glasses left but really that was the only very minor complaint. Pillows also were average - either really...
