    Breakfast was phenomenal. Toured the hotel and loved learning its history. Staff know you and are ready to help in any way. Plenty to see as soon as you walk out the door but also a pleasure to spend time in the room.

    Beautifully restored historical house. Our room Sinkeh is excellent with direct pool excess. Request for extra bed preparation was well done ahead of our arrival. Attentive staff.

    The property is fantastic. The room was gorgeous and well maintained. The little details like free drinks and the snacks delivered were lovely and part of a very authentic Penang experience.

    Well maintained hotel which takes you into early 19th century. Best part was breakfast, limited options but amazing taste. I had one of the best pancakes, my suggestion would be to allow to select at least 2 items from the breakfast menu list

    It is a building with history, with several awards, a famous sightsee place. We just lived inside, and could visit parts which not open to public tourists. The build itself is beautiful, worthy of a lot of photos. Do visit it day and night and...
