Spacious room and comfortable for four persons. Staff were friendly and attentive. Located next to the beach which is awesome. Cleanliness well maintained. Attached and common bathrooms available. Balcony easily accessible for us to enjoy the sea Breeze at night.

Friendly family & clean but very noisy, beds hard, pillows non existent. We stayed in family room 2 double beds, very cramped & no where not even a chair to put your clothes, a bit expensive for the standard of accommodation. But if you want a good location & somewhere clean it's ok

You are fronting the best part of the Beach. The balcony is great; albeit with uncomfortable, deteriorating sofas and chairs. The view from the balcony however, is just what I wanted... BYO oxygen mask; as there is stiff competition between smokers and non-smokers on this prime beachfront deck. People love to smoke in Penang. Cough cough... gasp, gasp! Please note,...

Talk about location! walk out of the house no more than 10 meters and you're on the beach! rate was quite reasonable for a simple single room (mine had two twin beds), bed was comfortable, rooms downstairs share the two separate bathrooms with other guests, and the bathrooms were clean. There are rooms upstairs with their own bathrooms. The atmosphere...

A great room with ac that I never had to use and I could hear the waves crushing down at night.... I met tons of interesting folks and engaged in some interesting...

On leaving the room we had use of a shared balcony which looked straight over the paradise beach. The guesthouse is also the family home of Ashok who resides there...

My experience at Shalini's Guest House was not one of the best during my stay in Malaysia. Even though the room itself was good and we could keep our belongings there long after the check-out, the owner herself was not a very warm person. I liked the fact, that we were provided with free, cold, potable water, clean rooms and...
