the best hotel

Wow where to start, the staff were awesome especially the chefs at breakfast. The ambience of the hotel was everything you could wish for. Have to say one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Lots of fun, and will def. book there again.Good location too, and easy to get to other parts of Penang. Loved the fact that we could use their sister hotel in Batu Ferangu when we went for the day.

Great Stay at Georgetown

Our stay at the E&O, Studio Suite in the Victory Annexe was super. The room was huge, bathroom and shower were massive and the very clean. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The location is very handy to restaurants, shops and sightseeing. The breakfasts were great with a great variety. Sarkies restaurant and Farquhar Bar were excellent. Best hotel in Georgetown.

Great Romantic Getaway

The hotel is located within walking distance to a few of the sights. Very nicely restored and spacious. High tea at 1885 is highly recommended. Also tried the Weekend buffet dinner at the Sarkies which is also good. Overall it has been a great experience with the only drawback being the noise from the surrounding clubs.
