A great location right on the beach. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and that is all the positives I have about my 3 night stay here.
The décor and furnishings in my room and in the hotels general areas are tired and in need of a complete make over. My room smelt damp when I arrived.
This hotel may be owned by the same group who own the Eastern & Oriental in Georgetown, Penang but the Lone Pine is definitely the poor relation and is nothing like the E&O which I did visit.
One saving grace; there is a free shuttle bus to and from the E&O several times a day, it is a 30 - 40 min journey in to town.
The breakfast area is quite crowded and upon entering this area via the interconnecting corridor was met with the aroma of cleaning fluids! Plus waiting staff did not seem to know what decaf coffee was.
Staying here was not a pleasurable experience.
