Reviewed 28 May 2015

They are experienced and well managed but the rooms has an outdated look. The beach stretch behind the hotel are tiny and the entertainment (singer duo) is kinda lame. It is overall a good value for money and a satisfactory visit but I'd recommend younger couple & single travellers to stay in gourney drive or georgetown instead.

Holiday Inn Resort Penang is a four-star property as stated on booking.com (I booked through the site). Four-star properties (International standard) are generally considered to be above average in terms of amenities and service. By saying service is above average, we are expecting staff to at least smile and perhaps say hi to the guests when they passed-by. This standard...
