The swimming pool is too small. The seawater is no good. The rooms look a bit tired. But I have to say the hotel location is perfect for a holiday. 101 bus station is right outside the hotel to take you to George Town and butterfly farm. The night market and local eatery are right outside. It has a great...

Right on the beach, small foot print resort offering currently 1 Resto bar only due to renovation. Good location in Ferringhi. Staff friendly and responsive. Rooms are a bit weary but bed was very comfortable.

I'm torn between giving this hotel a 3 or a 4. The latter because the rooms are great (tower) and the staff, a majority of them actually deserve a 5. However Batu Feringgi in itself is far from pleasant. Traffic is one huge problem and the hotel sits right on the main stretch, and with basically no pavements to walk...

After more than a week of traveling around Malaysia and Singapore, Hubby and I were ready for some good old-fashioned Western Culture, and this place fit the bill perfectly!

The hotel is located next to the beach with a pool. Convenient to a night market and restaurants. I think the hotel is old, furnishing is outdated and the room is not very clean. There are ants in the bathroom. Services is quite good.

Came here as part of a package so no choice in the hotel choice. On paper I wasn’t terribly enthused but the actual experience was really good. There are two sites either side of the road but there is a walkway over the road which works well. There is currently some improvement work going on but for us it wasn’t...

Stayed 3 nights recently on a short getaway trip. The property is located right on batu ferringi beach with two buildings connected by a overhead bridge.

On checking in, we were shown to our room, which was not facing the sea as booked and also the rooms looked quite tired and dated. The restaurant is nice as was the breakfast. The hotel is situated on the main road and so has easy access to a whole host of different types of shops and restaurants.
