Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 nice hotel but not for Westerners
I stayed in your hotel two days this month and I was very excited to spend a nice week end at the sea side.
I could find there all the quality and the details which make me appreciating staying in IHG hotels. The staff was nice and smily, the room was perfect and the price was ok.
Unfortunatly, I cannot accept to go in a intenationnal hotel and not to find any pork sausages or ham at the breakfast. Malaysia is not Saudi Arabia and I respect any religion or choice of life but when I go to Holliday Inn hotel it is to find internationnal atmosphere and not religious laws (in the respect of the law of the country of course). It was the same disapointment at the bar at night. I was dreaming to drink a glass in a nice atmosphere but the choice of alcool was poor and without interest. The bar tender only know the words "sold out"...
So as a westerner, as a man who loves to enjoy peace night with friends around a bottle of nice Russian vodka and loves eggs and bacon for Breakfast my stay was full of frustration.
May be it would be nice if in the future the management of the hotel focus also on other guests than only on the ones from Middle East.

We always like coming back to Holiday Inn, Penang. Management and staff are friendly and welcoming. The young lady cooking eggs for breakfast was outstanding, as was the young man who cared for our room. Variety of fresh fruits for breakfast could have been better. The bridge connecting both parts of hotel over the road should be properly connected into the resort building to facilitate elderly and handicapped guests.
