    E&O has a special and relaxed athmosphere. It can easily bring back you in time.... The Deluxe room was really spacious and convenient. Highly recommended experience.

  • 9.6

    We enjoy the romance of the hotels history and architecture. It has a style and old world sophisticarion that we enjoy. We have been wanting to stay there since 1973 when we first travelled through Penang as backpackers.

  • 9.6

    A deluxe experience, with a warm and personal staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and anticipate any needs. Staff were helpful and friendly in offering suggestions as to how to spend our time and where to eat outside the hotel for good local food.

  • 8.8

    Location, old world charm.

    Aircon was cold regardless of the setting chosen. Few Tv channels. Sarkies a la carte menu limited. Waiters not attentive.

  • 9.0

    The Location of E&O to Georgetown Historic Sites allows us to move around the different old and interesting sites within the Georgetown proper. It also is an easy access to the bars and food area. The staff were very accomodating and courteous and very helpful. I like that they provide fruits in your room everyday

    The pool and gym is so small. They only have one treadmill

    Buffet breakfast no longer has sparkling wines and mineral waters available, nor is the range of foods (still great, though) as extensive.

    Very good

    Historical / heritage building in Georgetown.

    The maintenance of the room could be better. Some things are worn out or not maintained well. The beats from the disco / nightclub below or nearby can be heard from the room. Spoilt the image of a reputable luxury hotel.

  • 9.6

    Fantastic old fashioned charm and ambience in this heritage building. Very comfortable rooms. Breakfast outside on the terrace by the sea is excellent. Staff very willing and helpful. Stayed twice and hope to return.

  • 10.0

    The staff were so helpful and understanding, I arrived very early on my own with a special needs child, they raced around and organised my room so I could check in straight away which was fantastic. The place is so relaxing and has a graciousness about it, absolute luxury.

  • 8.2

    Wonderful architecture and history (founded in 1885), a landmark of the area. Spacious, well decorated rooms and service rooms. Sea view.

  • 6.0

    Lovely, heritage hotel. Welcoming and helpful staff on check-in and throughout at front desk, and front door. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Bathrooms huge and well-equipped. Nice pool area,

    Bar and breakfast staff and service patchy. Always well-meaning but not efficient. Kept waiting for simple things such as coffees and milk too long on too many occasions.More training required to bring up to 4/5 star level. Bedrooms not luxurious and bathrooms a little tired in places. Food and cocktails, although nice, not up to 4/5 star standard. A little disappointing at times.

    The Easter & Oriental represents a level of service that has sadly disappeared. Our personal butler could not do too much for us. The decor and atmosphere was stylish and traditional whilst retaining comfort to a modern standard. The swimming pool is ideally situated and the dining areas are very pleasant. The breakfast offered all that any traveller could wish. Service was very attentive. We enjoyed the welcome juice drink on arrival. The laundry service was excellent. The bathroom was place to linger and luxuriate if only we had the time! The beds were perfectly comfortable and room temperature control was easy and effective. We look forward to a chance to return!

    Our only gripe was that we felt the addition of cushions to the somewhat low and hard seats in the Sarkies bar would be a good improvement.

    First and most important: the hotel staff with impeccable efficiency and warm welcome is worth special credit. A combination of privacy and full service made our stay a memorable one. We loved the history of the hotel, the possibility to enjoy warm, quiet evenings on the seafront with a splendid view of the Malacca Strait. The saté was very good, and the breakfast provided by room service was also of highest quality. The different quarters of Penang/Georgetown is within walking distance, but this is not for all travellers. I suggest that a guest who want to travel in safety and comfort take a taxi, since they are abundant right outside the hotel. Should anyone want to explore the island, the hotel staff will provide the means of getting there, and the price is fair. The concierge have a vast knowledge of the surroundings, and will supply good advice.

  • 9.6

    Lovely, spacious suites with gorgeous bathrooms and an attention to detail. The hotel is on the harbour, so the views were fabulous, very tranquil. The swimming pool was relaxing and the hotel shoppe was very good. Service was first-class. I like colonial-era hotels and have stayed in many. The e&o is among my all-time favorites.

  • 8.2

    The reason to stop at the e and o is to recapture some of the colonial spirit of yesteryear
