Positive Reviews

All-around class

This hotel exudes elegance and sophistication. Set in a renovated Edwardian mansion in central George Town, it is a seamless fusion of colonial-era charm with a wealth of smart, modern – and of course thoughtful – amenities. With only eight rooms, guests say that the small selection of accommodation only adds to the exclusive, boutique feel of this property. Details such as a comprehensive in-room pillow menu and even hand-made macaroons add to the atmosphere while the staff here – accommodating and attentive to the core – offer a guest experience that more than matches this hotel's ambience.

Fine dining excellence

Guests continuously praise this small hotel for its excellent eating and drinking options. Whether they choose to have a light bite in the living room or a drink on the lawn by the pool, the quality of the offerings here is consistently outstanding. The French-style and international fare – as well as the high teas – offered in this hotel's dining room area garner routine praise from guests, but the selection of drink takes this property to another level. Whether they like whisky or wine, this property seems to have something in store for every palette.

Negative Reviews

Pricey food menu

If there is one gripe regarding the food here, it would be that all of this dining excellence comes at a cost. Many comment that the menu at this hotel is priced rather steeply, with guests saying that a meal in-house burns a significant hole in their pockets.

Gym could be better equipped

This hotel's on-site fitness facilities leave gym bunnies rather disappointed. Guests eager to use these amenities are unhappy to find that the equipment here consists only of two machines. Many feel that a property of this calibre should offer a wider selection of equipment.
