Nice hotel. Friendly Staff.

Pros: Room comfort, decore, movie and entertainment selection.
Cons: Consideration for women wishing to put on makeup and drying hair. Mirrors & PowerPoint access were not set up to assist this at all.
Location: Would appreciate a transfer shuttle bus to/from airport and Georgetown.
The hotel was very comfortable. The decor very pleasing. I had a problem with in-house dinning (meals very late). When the meal did finally arrive, the quality and flavour was very good. After three very late meals in a row, I emailed a complaint. Management contacted me immediately and apologised sincerely and assured me that the F & B staff will be spoken to and every effort made to ensure this will not happen again... and it did not happen again.

Dear Lynette, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at Hard Rock Hotel Penang. We are glad to hear that you found the hotel was very comfortable. Hard Rock Hotel Penang undertook a complete room refurbishment throughout 2016, so the rooms are all very fresh with the new funky decor and features. We love providing our guests with a terrific experience, so we apologize for falling short this time. Your feedback on the food delay has been shared with our Director of Food & Beverage, and he will ensure that all his staff properly trained to deliver food in timely manner. Hope to welcome you back to Hard Rock Penang soon and once again we appreciate your feedback at all times. Kind Regards, Michael Smeeton Executive Assistant Manager

Lagoon room was great

Pros: The lagoon room which had direct access to the pool.
My stay at the hotel was pleasant, staffs were friendly and overall cleanliness was good. However as i had child with me, i would have preferred if the room was aired out a bit more as there was a stale cigarette smell in the room. Perhaps i should have specifically requested for a non smoking room, so not the hotel's fault in this case.

Very nice hotel for the family

Loved the Hard Rock Hotel rooms were clean and modern. The kids loved the water slides and swimming pools. The free shuttle bus service to the night markets was fantastic. Will definitely be back.
