    Nice hotel but dont eat here!

    Lovely hotel but quality of food for a 5* hotel was poor. Had dinner at Planters. None of dishes were well cooked -mostly overcooked as with calamari and seabass. Rib eye steak was poorly seasoned. Very disappointing meal. Breakfast was equally poor. Tried most dishes over 2 days and the quality of cooking was poor. Had undercooked eggs on both days. The roti was rubbery. Coffee was poor. A shame that in Penang that has great food, this hotel could not do better. Our stay was redeemed by a superb meal at a nearby hotel in their Indigo restaurant.

    If you’re staying in Georgetown Penang, it really is a no brainer to stay at the E&O. One of the most unique stays you can find in Malaysia, offering a classical old world luxury, making you feel like a British governor from the 1800s. Being quite centrally located, you can opt to Grab to all the popular Penang foodie locations for cheap, or better yet, just Grab/FoodPanda delivery whatever you’re craving for. Having stayed at Shangri-La Rasa Sayang as well during my recent trip to Penang (another 5 star offering), I found the room and service at E&O to be vastly superior. The bathroom is very generous and you get an excellent view of the ocean from your balcony. The swimming pools are very beautiful and Instagram worthy. The only minor negative I can think of, having stayed at the Victoria Annexe wing, I found the lobby to be a bit dull and lacking grandiosity as compared to the Heritage wing lobby. First impressions count so I hope E&O make an effort to blow away guests from the get go when they arrive at the Victoria Annexe lobby. All things considered, if I ever come back to Penang I will definitely book a room at the Heritage wing. It feels so much more interesting there

    It’s no Danna Langkawi

    I had really high hopes for this hotel based on reviews (and price!) but whilst there is no question the hotel a elegant and beautifully appointed, I was left underwhelmed by the service which, by comparison to similar hotels in Malaysia was just average. This is a real shame. Had the service been of a higher standard, this would be a too rated hotel for sure. It’s no Danna Langkawi.

    Didn’t come to refill the soft drinks and liquor every night. The cocktails hour is short.
