Positive Reviews

Good quality accommodation

Guests have been consistently impressed with the quality of the accommodation here. The rooms are found to be clean and comfortable, if a little on the small side. The majority of the rooms are also said to be quiet - quite the feat in a busy area like George Town. Guests are particularly appreciative of the fresh flowers displayed in the rooms.

Excellent location

The location of this property is awarded a seal of approval from guests. Set in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the lodge is found to offer easy access to many of the city’s top tourist spots. Street art, dining options and attractions are all said to be readily accessible from the property, much of them on foot.

Great service from staff

The staff comes in for a great deal of praise among reviews of this George Town lodge. Guests have felt welcome on arrival - a feeling that continued throughout their stay thanks to attentive service. Guests often report that the staff offered them handy information about the local area, in terms of what to see and do while in town. Extras such as a complimentary hot drink in the evening and snacks on arrival and departure are often cited as an unexpected but welcome bonus.

Negative Reviews

Parking may prove difficult

Guests who have brought their own car here note that as the lodge doesn't have its own parking, finding a space on the street is necessary. This hasn't always proved as simple as it sounds.

Breakfast lacks variety

Although breakfast here appears to be of a good standard overall, guests do mention that some variety from day to day would be appreciated. It seems that the same spread is offered each day, which can get boring over a longer stay.
