- Romantic Vacation
staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. recommended.
- Shopping & Culinary
The hotel service and the staff really helpful. I enjoy my stay at E and O Hotel.
Stayed in a deluxe Suite, Heritage Wing, which is totally worth the money. Everything perfect the furniture, room size with elegant sitting area and sea view, large dbl. bathroom, and little item like free soft drinks from mini bar, free PC use and super friendly responsiveness of receptionists.
- Family vacation
The service from the reception to buffet counter is a thumbs up! The room condition would need some further maintenance. But say no to the Sunday dinner buffet, food is under expectations, maybe Friday and Saturday dinner is better. Restaurant 1885 has nice English environment. Highly recommended hotel in Penang.

We had check-in at the old wing of E&O. Everything was nice. We love it! Then, we went to the infinity pool area at the new wing, and found out that the new wing got the modern look interior that my husband admired of compared to the old wing with the vintage interior. We then tried our luck if we could change to the new wing's room, my husband asked the receptionist if it possible to switch to the new room. And the receptionist said there were available room for us at the new wing! We were really happy! Once we entered the new wing's room, yuppp we're totally in loveeeeeeee with it! Like super happy with the room! Thank you so much E&O staffs! Your service was nearly perfect to us! Definitely will repeat our stay there in future.

Great location
Stayed in the Victory Annexe and a delight the first morning to draw back the curtains and find myself with a wonderful sea view. Rooms are very large and comfortable, but a little oddly designed, with wardrobes opening onto hand basins. It's the room design that makes this 4 1/2 stars rather than 5 for me. Never used the main restaurant, but breakfast & cocktail hour in the Planters' Lounge were absolutely fine, and the pool I enjoyed.

Such an amazing hotel, you won’t regret
We’ve stayed old wing wich built in 1885. We booked deluxe room but when we arrived hotel, hotel manager upgraded our room to Penang suite.This room 150sqm. Has a nice view to sea and two balconies. Hotel service and breakfast also good. The New wing 6th floor have a swimming pool with nice view to sea. We will recommend and stay this hotel again.

A taste of the past.
We had a wonderful few days at this hotel. It gives you a fusion of the colonial hotel with the best in service and friendly staff. The room was excellent with all the facilities you would expect from a quality hotel, the view over the harbour area was superb. The hotel is centrally located so getting out and round was easy. After a hard day in the het and humidity you could relaxing in the hotel infinity pool. As the clock strikes 5.00pm we attended the planters lounge where nibbles and drinks are complementary, please note the nibbles are substantial and may reduce your appetite for the hotels amazing buffet. All in all a wonderful hotel with great staff.

A lovely time warp!
The older or heritage wing is better for us ...less noise and unwanted human traffic. It was like going back in time....classic ..calm and tranquil. The room is massively spacious overlooking the sea ...nice crisp linen and comfortable pillows. We were pleased with our stay here after experiencing a noisy and lax atmosphere in the new wing. The breakfast restaurant was as busy as anything and service is not that great ...the staff couldn't cope with the surge of tourists. The classic personal service is non existent......sadly ....room for improvement is desired...so as to retain that ambience of class synonymous with a hotel of this standard! The red faded table napkins have outlived their days. The worn out rattan chairs , too need replacement. In short ... A make over is much needed to bring back its glory days!

High Tea
A beautiful old hotel with loads of charm and excellent service offering an elegant afternoon tea with silver service. We took the opportunity to partake of this meal while on an Asian Cruise and would highly recommend it. The cost was around A$20 each and well worth the money. Giving serious thought to returning for an extended stay at this charming hotel.
