Absolutely loved it!

I was blown away by the size of the room, and could not believe the comfort of the bedding and pillows. After a long flight, this was exactly what I wanted to come to. The staff were more than accommodating and kind throughout my stay, and the facilities were always clean and well taken care of. Penang is my favourite place in the world, and I will be coming back to stay at Holiday Inn.

O K but could be better

Pros: Good location and good sized clean rooms
Cons: Breakfast needs improvement
Location: Good location
Holiday Inn was OK but I expected better, we stayed five days The morning breakfast had long wait line to get to breakfast. Then when we ordered hot breakfast on two mornings the staff lost our orders and we had to order again, on one other morning I ordered eggs and by the time it was served the meal was cold.

Close to beaches

Nice place to stay. Staff were friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Close to the beaches and the night markets. Easy access by bus (with frequent services) into town.

Dear CM Our location is just fantastic, across our garden you are at the beach, around the corner you have the night market with all the hawker stall’s and vendor’s and if you turn around the other corner of the hotel there is some great small restaurants along the road and on the beach too. Bus stops are just outside of the hotel to give you easy access if you want to explore Georgetown or the National Park. Please let us know when you are making your way back to Penang. Sincere regards Dominic – General Manager

Great spot at Ferrimghi

Very comfortable hotel and good breakfast. Got a room upgrade with sea view so very nice touch. Great spot infront of the beach and in the middle of the strip.
