Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJS6456 Another great stay at The Holiday Inn
We would like to thank Susie and the wonderful staff for another fantastic stay at the Holiday Inn.
Thanks again for placing us all on the same floor as each other it was very much appreciated.
We were welcomed with smiles from the reception and luggage staff upon arrival and the smiles never stopped.
All six of us have nothing but praise for everyone who looked after us all during our stay, all done with a cheery smile and welcome. Our room cleaner Dilum was fantastic and did a great job looking after us with a smile it was great to always return to a clean room. The restaurant manager and all the girls and guys in the dining room and bar both inside and out, reception, luggage guys on the doors, the pool lads all your staff do a great job they were all fantastic. Even the guys around the hotel doing gardens and maintenance always had a cheery smile and all staff deserve a pat on the back.
Missing you all already, wonderful food, wonderful people, looking forward to staying with you all again next time we are in Penang.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyTheJock Excellent location and an enjoyable stay
Although I have been to Malaysia a number of times before this was my first visit to Penang and I'm glad I chose the Holiday Inn Resort.
I selected a room in the Tower Block which is across the main road from the original building that still contains the restaurant, bar and swimming pool, as well as offering access to the beach.
It was a good choice since being on a higher floor I was fairly well insulated from the late night noise emanating from the night market and local restaurants. There is a covered walkway connecting the two buildings so its a simple matter to get over for breakfast or whatever.
A substantial buffet is available at breakfast time with chefs on hand to prepare eggs to order. I was content with the selection available and each day of my stay left the table feeling well satisfied.
For dinner I ate out at some of the adjacent local restaurants which clearly varied in both price and ambience but which in each case delivered good food at an affordable price.
There are bus stops immediately outside for both the hop-on hop-off service and the scheduled services that can take you into Georgetown or all the way to the airport for a fraction of the cost of a cab.
Although I was travelling alone and enjoyed myself here I suspect this H.I. is probably better suited to families with children looking for a fun place to stay, and I'm sure it would be.
Were I to return to Penang then I would have no hesitation is staying here again.
