The room was as advertised. It was very clean, however, there were only 2 bottles of water on arrival. It was the Christmas season and there was hardly any Christmas carols or music in the foyer area during our stay. The fans in the swimming pool area were removed and it can be stifling at times with the humid weather without the fans. The ceiling was not repaired properly and it does not look like a 5 star hotel in the pool area. A bit disappointed for the price we paid. The breakfast spread was excellent.

We stayed at E&O - Victory Annexe for 3 nights, it was a very comfortable experience. The room was classic and comfortable with a great view of the sea and a spacious bathroom. When we first checked in we were assigned a room on the 7th floor with a partial view of the sea. Upon request for a sea facing room, the hotel staff was kind enough to find one for us that had just become available on the 9th floor. While we waited for the room the staff was very helpful and guided us to the restaurant for some complimentary tea and coffee. The check in experience was great. Their infinity pool is amazing! Can have a nice leisurely afternoon by the pool with some drinks and snacks. overall a great experience, the heritage and colonial charm of the hotel definitely adds to the whole experience! The location is closeby to all popular locations in George Town. would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and come back here ourselves.
