Hurricane Sunny
I stayed six nights in early February. Because the location was great, I walked to restaurants and shops in Georgetown. My room was big and had a sea view. The cleaning crews cleaned my room twice a day. The front desk staff was friendly, polite, and helpful. However, during six nights of staying at E & O, I have had some negatives feelings about this hotel. First, some guest were pretty rude. They talked so loudly in the hallway, and their conversations woke me up a few times. I was not sure it was their culture or they were simply rude. It was really irritated me many nights. I almost shouted at them, "Shut up. Let me sleep." The other negative experience was at the restaurant. Some staff was great, but some simply didn’t care for their guests. The receptionist never greeted me. The chef who prepared noodles simply didn't want to explain to me what kinds of noodles he could offer me when I asked question. Also, the buffet food was same everyday, I gave up eating at the hotel. Instead, I went out and enjoyed delicious food.

Fantastic stay. Hotel has brilliant physical spaces but systems a bit too analog. Housekeeping/maintenance of historic infrastructure is not quite up to speed. Yes, very nice refurbishment of Old Wing bedrooms, bar etc and the public spaces all feel nice although the proliferation of photographs on walls and the increased emphasis on the old colonial vibe won’t be to everyone’s taste. However, more importantly, why not fix the scuffed skirting and chipped woodwork? Why not polish the glass doors in public spaces, or wipe doorknobs and light switches? Why not deal with the crows which have taken over from the mynahs on the breakfast terrace? Or maybe just wipe and disinfect the outside tables and chairs more assiduously?

8/10 Very good

Beautiful but noisy
The hotel is magnificent and very photographable. We enjoyed a great time exploring the hotel and taking photos. The buffet breakfast has a good spread. The Heritage wing room provides complementary minibar drinks (including a bottle of wine), daily newspaper, 3 piece of laundry services. (Victoria Annex rooms do not have these complementary services except corner suites.) The room are cleaned twice daily for both buildings. The hotel is a short walk to the main old town area. And can easily take grab to explore further places. However, there are some shortcomings of this hotel which we find irritating. The first night our room was facing the city, and there’s endless motorcycles passing by over the night. We can hardly have a good sleep. The second night we requested a sea view room. The motorcycle noise is gone, but at 7am+ we were waken up by the door closing sound of our neighbor. We then realized the door did not have a soft closing feature/buffer, and it’s making a VERY LOUD SOUND when it’s closed. Our neighbor walked in and out more than 5 times in 7-9am, so we can barely have a good sleep in the morning. So if you request a sea view room, and are generally an early bird, this hotel is still a great a choice!
