We visited Holiday Inn Penang in March for a week with our two small children. Overall it was a very pleasant stay. There is a shallow pool for toddlers which has a sun canopy so our babies were able to play happily with the other children that were there. They also have an indoor kids club. At the time of...

We stayed at the family suite which has a king size bed and 2 single beds. The room looks recently refurbished, clean and spacious for kids to move around the room. The hotel has a play area for toddlers (with adult supervision) and older children to hang out besides arranging outdoor activities daily. Literally kids stay and eat for free....

My wife and myself stayed here for 8 days mid March 2017. The Holiday Inn Bath Ferringhi has 2 towers. 1x tower is on the beachfront and has 7 floors. The 2nd is across the road and has around 22 floors. The 2 towers are connected by a covered walkway, which makes it easy to walk between buildings as you...

Was very disappointed in this hotel. The rooms are shabby & tired. The finer details of the room are neglected and dirty. The room wasn't cleaned well. It was supposed to be a renovated room, but the only newish thing was the pictures on the wall. The painting on the wall was shabby & slapdash. For my holiday $$ it...

Our stay at Holiday Inn resort was absolutely wonderful and we couldn't fault it any way other than perhaps to say that it was too short ( 9 days). Our sea view room in the Ferringhi Tower was very comfortable and well equipped and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in - and we've...

Our third visit to the Holiday Inn. Must say it's nice to be back, we know just what to expect and it is lovely to catch up with some of their long-serving staff, and indeed the long-serving repeat guests again, who seem to have good memories and remember guests without being prompted! We had a usual tower block sea facing...

As a regular guest of IHG hotels I always choose to stay at their properties first. I last visited Penang when I was a child and it has certainly seen enormous development. I was upgraded to a beach front room which would normally be great but the regular entertainment held in the open-plan lounge below was way too loud and...

Once you are there, every department will take care of your needs be it Front Desk, Travel Desk or Restaurant. a) It's a paradise for kids where officials takes a step further to entertain. b) To our utter surprise, The General Manager was in round during Breakfast to...
