Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as 'The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient.

What's not to love about this hotel....the breakfast buffet was fantastic with a huge choice of different kinds of food, the room was big, the bed was so comfortable and there are several options for food, afternoon tea or cocktails. I want to go back!
