Thank you Christoph and Collin and team
The service was fantabulous from the time we checked in till we left. They were like our family in Penang. We will make it a point to come back more often in 2021. Thank you Lini for the breakfast recommendation ~ Roti Sarang. My fav breakfast are - pandan nasi lemak, wanton noodles and prawn noodles.
Just got back home from a wonderful 2 night stay in a George Town Suite (Heritage Wing) at the Eastern and Oriental Hotel. The whole experience from start to finish was absolutely lovely. The hotel maintained its beautiful old world charm while offering modern comforts and not being stuffy. The room was large and well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We loved the extra touches in the room like the provision of Gin, Whiskey and Vodka as well as a Nespresso machine and mini bar drinks. The evening cocktail hour and finger food provided was also very nice. A special thanks / mention to the kitchen / service team who went out of their way to provide food suitable for my wife's and daughter's dietary/allergy restrictions.
We stayed at the E&O from 24th to 27th December 2020. Wow what a wonderful hotel! I cannot fault anything or praise it highly enough.. Everything was wonderful especially the staff who could not do enough for their guests. We booked in to Sarkies Restaurant for Christmas Day dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed a sumptuous buffet with free flow wine. Again the staff were wonderful and very attentive. A highlight for me was the free drinks and canapies in the Cornwallis lounge from 6 -7pm and a wonderful foot and leg massage by Saskia at the Punuri Spa. It was easily the best foot massage I have EVER had. The staff there made me feel so welcome. I cannot wait to return to this hotel. Outstanding service. Thank you.
Sarkies for lunch
We were having a belated Christmas family lunch at sarkies and received a warm,kind service from friendly liza and most of the servers were helpful and friendly too.The food selection was not a lot compare to before covid but still ok. Thank you
A Must in Georgetown
If you’re staying in Georgetown Penang, it really is a no brainer to stay at the E&O. One of the most unique stays you can find in Malaysia, offering a classical old world luxury, making you feel like a British governor from the 1800s. Being quite centrally located, you can opt to Grab to all the popular Penang foodie locations for cheap, or better yet, just Grab/FoodPanda delivery whatever you’re craving for. Having stayed at Shangri-La Rasa Sayang as well during my recent trip to Penang (another 5 star offering), I found the room and service at E&O to be vastly superior. The bathroom is very generous and you get an excellent view of the ocean from your balcony. The swimming pools are very beautiful and Instagram worthy. The only minor negative I can think of, having stayed at the Victoria Annexe wing, I found the lobby to be a bit dull and lacking grandiosity as compared to the Heritage wing lobby. First impressions count so I hope E&O make an effort to blow away guests from the get go when they arrive at the Victoria Annexe lobby. All things considered, if I ever come back to Penang I will definitely book a room at the Heritage wing. It feels so much more interesting there
