Exceptional service in an exceptionally beautiful hotel. Fantastic location but quietly hidden in a little side street. I would and am recommending everyone to stay here if they are in Penang. The only place have ever heard of a free minibar! The owners have done a fantastic job and you can read about their journey and where all of your pictures in your room come from - it's really very personal. The breakfast was lovely and I can't say enough about the friendliness of the ALL of the staff.

We arrived in Penang in the evening and after finding our hotel we went straight out for dinner in little India. We found a restaurant near by and ate there. I had an egg roti canai which is a bit like a savoury pancake which you eat with your hands and dunk into different curry sauces. It was delish. The roti and a fresh mint and lime drink cost less than £2 so I was pretty ...
... for somewhere else to stay but Narelle was very generous and gave us another two nights in the lovely old house as there were no reservations for it for the next couple of days so the eating and general wandering and exploring continued. Every day was a very lazy chilled affair. No such landmarks or places that you must visit but a great place to kick back and enjoy everything that a town has to offer. After our lucky extra two nights we stayed on ...
... of either Malaysia's wet markets, or the civilised malls. Jenna therefore accompanied Sharon and Tony to Chow Rasta market, showing them the rather pungent fish and chicken quarter, along with the Main Street. Since they visited just after rush hour, Sharon and Tony missed the experience of being beeped at by motorbikes in the middle of the market, so Jenna resolved to take them back the following day. Queensbay Mall proved to be a far more sedate and cool experience for ...
