          We like staying at quaint old places exuding old world charm and this one fitted the description to the t. We normally stop at Penang during our trips further north and have so far stuck to Batu Firringhi area. This turned out to be a nice deviation from usual and we'd be doing it more often. Staff are very friendly with a helpful attitude. Rooms are very neat and clean. Great courtyard for languishing and exploring. Some great photo ops which my wife and daughter exploited to the fullest. Area around hotel is old Penang city so interesting to explore. Definitely value for money.

          The moment I stepped in the hotel I knew I would come back again. I have enjoyed my stay because the staffs at the hotel provided excellent service. They were also very friendly and helpful. Choice of breakfast was great and I settled down with hot tea and Nonya delicacies. The cafe where I had breakfast was very peaceful as there was no crowd (unlike other hotels) and I enjoyed every sip of my tea. The swimming pool area was my favourite part of the hotel. Small yet cosy and very peaceful, a good place to read a book and soak up in the Sun. No noisy kids jumping around splashing water, etc. This hotel is perfect for couples or those on solo trips who just want to take a break from work.

Since they hadn't seen the sun for a while, we decided to spend their first day in Penang on Batu Ferringhi beach. After our leisurely breakfast, we hopped on a bus from Komtar, and enjoyed a few lazy hours on the sand, in the bath like sea, and sipping drinks in one of the beachside bars. Bliss. After another Jenna special for dinner (dal bhat - she's still using ...

This turned out to be a good decision as the room is huge and comfortable and looks right out on to the Main Street. ...

This list included items such as knives, souvenir lighters, items made of leather, fireworks, and finally, cobras; not snakes in general, but cobras specifically. Apparently pythons, mambas, and rattlesnakes are fine, but don’t even try bringing in one of those cobras or the customs authorities are sure to deport you (and your cobra) back to where you came from!

Kingsley also explained the inter-ethnic rivalries that he had observed during his time here: the Chinese had the economic power, the Malays had the political power, and the poor Indians didn’t have ...
