Poor shower door, terrible omelette station
Overall was ok, except for the toilet shower door and disappointing experience at breakfast. The sealant flap to keep water within the shower area wasn’t doing its job and after a shower the entire main area of the toilet gets flooded. We had to use the floor towel to soak up all the water outside the shower and it would be dripping wet each time. One of the drawers in the room was missing a knob too. And the bedsheet had a black stain. All were stuff we could close an eye over, except for the breakfast where my partner and I both had to order our eggs at the omelette station THREE times. First time, we placed our order and went to take other stuff from the breakfast buffet. We came back to the station, only to realize other guests who came after us had already been served their eggs while the staff looked at us blankly and asked us what we ordered. Never mind, we ordered again. After a while, she served my partner’s order (but got it wrong because she didn’t quite understand English, he said “well done on both sides”). Then I went to check on my order, and it looked different from what I ordered (mushroom and cheese). She said it was mushroom and onions at first, then when I said i ordered mushroom and cheese, she changed and said “yes mushroom and cheese.” I looked at the egg and pointed out a piece of green capsicum embedded inside, to which I asked what it was. She couldn’t answer. We then had to get the manager to come and translate our simple order to her.

A Heritage Zone hotel experience.
A nice modern hotel tucked a way within a heritage building within the Penang George Town heritage zone. What a lovely fit that makes for a great stay and experience. It is certainly worth a return visit.
