Stayed here for just over three weeks in January when on placement from university. For an apartment for 4 people we paid around £160 each for a month! The apartment was spacious, clean and modern and the beds were all a great size. Being on the 10th floor meant we had great views of Penang bridge and all around. The...

Service was great, the hosts were well-trained and very hospitable. Stayed in a 3-bedroom unit, spacious with everything you need for a company of 6-7! Great for family weekend getaways. Cooking and laundry facilities are all included inside the apartment unit so you don't have to bring so many clothes. Pool was lovely and reception and breakfast area greets you...

The reception area had pool and ping-pong tables, and there's a huge, well-kept swimming pool nearby. Cons - just one major one really: My son's Nike slippers which he had left...

The hosts were excellent and so welcoming! The place itself was very nice and clean. Can not fault anything about this apartment. Also we would recommend everyone to have their break fast meals there. Everything we tried was very delicious. Visit again for sure!

Firstly, there is no bar at this property. There is no complimentary shuttle either, to the nearby shopping mall. You are stuck in the middle of no where, reliant on taxi's to get anywhere. The swimming pool is in urgent need of maintenance with tiles missing on the floor and walls. You keep catching your feet on tile edges and...
