The service was good, there's nothing extraordinary about the hotel and its service. Everything is right about the price you paid for. We had the aircond repaired on the first day and the noise was gone after we came home from work. But the shower was really funny when it fell down onto my friend's head while he was showering.
Unique Quality: We did not get the chance to go to the pool or the hotel compound. But what sets this hotel apart from the rest is that it in right in front of the Gurney Drive, hence its name. You can find a McDonalds, the g Mall about 3km from the hotel. Also at the hotel lobby is a pub, a massage parlour, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and a steakhouse.
We stayed in the studio suite....and all i could say is it was a sweeeeeet experience. The staff are helpful and friendly, the hotel is clean and beautiful and the spa offers services at a really affordable rate (considering that this is a hotel).
Ooooh, and I also loved the breakfast menu..huge, huge selection of food.... they even got the soba noodles for japanese-food lovers, for breakfast..!
Unique Quality: I think all rooms have a view of the sea, if not full, partial, like what we got, and i think that was good enough. One more cute thing about this hotel is that it provides a recreational park where you can enjoy swimming in the pool, or play ping ping or volleyball while enjoying a beach-like atmosphere (the strong wind and sand-filled floor) up there at the 7th floor.
Directions: Errrr...... jusk ask the cab driver to take you to the hotel, they should know the way. But make sure you negotiate the price before entering the cab.... meters are not used in Penang.
I liked this hotel mainly because of the location...It was on Gurney Drive and being a food maniac, I had no trouble finding for places to eat...It might be a bit more expensive, but when the tummy is "growling" and shouting for food, I really don't mind paying a RM$1 extra for food...
Stayed here in 2004 and hope it has not changed...

Need an apartment in Penang for a few days. Preferably near Green Lane or maybe near Gurney Drive or anywhere in town. But not the ones by the beach.
If anyone knows if I can rent one for a few days, please do e-mail me off the list.
try THE NORTHAM. They currently have excellent promotional rates. (They also belong to The Gurney Hotel, but insiders know that THE NORTHAM is better).
What orice range are you looking at ?
Say about RM150 - 180 per day.
Thats about the price of Gurney Hotel (same management that of Northam). It is located along Gurvey Drive, sea facing and very convenient.
You can check their website and call them to confirm the rate as it is peak season now. www.gurney-hotel.com.my
