Good location, good view, good services
I like this hotel because very attractive and clean
Good & nice view, executive meeting done
I like this hotel very much. It is very nice and the room is very spacious. We will definitely stay here if we were to come to Penang again.
Counter/Front desk services need to improve . I lose my watch at your hotel, and told them this watch very important to me and just new launch less than 10 days at Singapore and exclusive from my company (the losing time within might night till morning) but your staff give me the response not professional enough. More worst is your staff 10:00am morning take your staff key to open my room when I rest inside my room. Therefore your security need to improve. And your front desk say will reply me by email, but up to date never receive any mail from the hotel. Thank and regards.

Great golfing location
I was the person who organised the golfing group. This is the third time we have stayed and played at the Equatorial Penang and Penang Golf Course. The hotel is great with fabulous facilities and the cooperation with the golf club is extremely efficient. The club room is definitely worth the money and the pool area with a band and dancing lets you party until late.

Nice location but not enough staff to support
I stay 10 days for business trip. The hotel is very big and we are a large group of people and I think manpower to support are not enough. I book a room for three people but there are only two beds and everything in the room prepared for two sets only. A bellboy took very long time when we wanted to check out. We wait for sometimes in a queue when we want to ask something at the front desk and when we want to pick up laundry because there are many guest. My friend had an agruement with a staff who spoke impolite word and lack of service at midnight. Appreciate the nice view and location uphill. Swimming pool is very nice and facilities is great. Breakfast is full of choices.

Beautiful hotel
We stayed as part of a large golfing group touring Malaysia. The hotel was excellent with a lovely pool and pool area with a bar which was also open in the evening. The hotel was situated within walking distance to the golf course. We stayed in a club room which was very well appointed. This entitled us to attend the club lounge for two hour free drinks and nibbles in the evening and breakfast. The service in the club lounge was excellent. The staff throughout the hotel were very obliging, organising our golf clubs etc

Great place to stay if you visit Penang island
I spent almost a month in Penang island for business and this hotel was by far the best option to stay! The rooms and everything in this hotel are great!! The only thing is the location as you won't have a lot of choices around the hotel to eat or visit, however the transportation is really affordable and that is not an issue at all. As summary, this hotel is the best option if you are planning a business trip to the island!!

Great Hotel For Golfers
We stayed here as part of a golfing tour of Malaysia. The hotel is ideally located right next to The Penang Golf Club. The hotel itself is excellent. We enjoyed a comfortable & spacious room with a very comfortable bed & a nice bathroom. The hotel facilities are first rate with a great pool area & pool side bar with drinks & food. The staff were all very friendly & efficient. We stayed in a Club Room which cost a little extra but well worth the expense. The club room provided great food & plenty of drinks of a late afternoon & very nice & quiet breakfast service.
