Also known as The E&O, this heritage hotel was established back in 1885. Although it has an old British colonial feel to it, the hotel is fully equipped with modern facilities. One of the main features is the poolside terrace, which has a breathtaking view of the Andaman Sea. This hotel is also home to the famous Sarkies Corner, a colonial coffee shop that serves delicious local and international cuisine. It's a great venue for a honeymoon or even to host a wedding.

Penang's oldest hotel. A bit on the expensive side, but the hotel is beautiful with an excellent view of the sea. Close to a variety of tourist sights light St. Xavier church, and the Penang museums, as well as little India

Memories of a bygone colonial era, with beautiful high ceilings, fans, ornate furniture and fittings; a small pool by the break wall overlooking the straits. cocktails at sunset, after a busy day sightseeing, and eating our way around Georgetown........my gorgeous wife booked and planned this one, and I thank her from the bottom of my heart! I think we will return to spend a few more days just soaking up the history, and sipping on more cocktails!

The E&O has a lot of charm. Conveniently located just a short walk from central Georgetown, this is a nice place to relive colonial nostalgia without breaking the bank. The hotel has a nice pool area, the rooms are large, and the staff are friendly / attentive.


Ah, so sad when a grand old hotel gets a generic makeover. It's not that they made it bad, really--I mean, everything's nice enough, and the staff are kind, and it's plush--but it just doesn't have much soul at all. Plus, it feels a bit cut off from the rest of the city (and certainly isn't walking distance from the ferry--but maybe I'm the only one who'd make such a mistake). Best part: very attractive drink coasters. I wish I'd taken a couple more.
