Unreservedly Recommended ……… Mar 07, 2018
We will definitely be back……... without hesitation

Having stayed here on many occasions before we were glad we returned in Feb 2018........ and we will definitely be returning again.


Most importantly by the smiles on the other guests faces we agreed that the staff and management were always attentive, courteous, friendly, and ready to help and that they love looking after their guests and they also enjoy working there…..

For the Best Location in Penang and its great seaside position we enjoyed its own secluded, peaceful, clean and safe beach.

Located in a quieter central area between busy Ferringhi and the thriving shopping malls, restaurants and night markets all were easily accessed with the free shuttle bus. There is also a thriving community of local shops close by…..

For the rooms that are spacious, clean and are constantly being upgraded, are maintained to a high standard and all have great ocean views with balconies….

For the hotels excellent variety and choices of restaurants and food including a changing buffet selection for breakfast and diner…..

For the supervised and well maintained pool which is very child safe and clean….

For the free wifi [fast] which is a blessing if you need to be connected….

For the fact you are near a hub of water sports i.e. paragliding, yachting and child activities etc. or just a peaceful walk…

For the gym…….if you need it….

For the great value for money and even more importantly, you feel truly relaxed and looked after….

The many returning and long stay guests [at least 30 while we were there]proves its genuine acceptance….


Staff alone are a good reason, you will leave as friends….add the great room, location and hospitality and its a definite….

Nice private beach but rooms need to be refurbished. Feb 17, 2013
We booked this hotel because it has a private beach and just a short drive to Georgetown. The hotel is 30 minutes drive from the airport and 15 minutes to Georgetown.

We had a standard room in tower block. The room is small, dated and old with balcony. Our room balcony was facing the condominium beside the hotel, we could only see the partial view of the sea between the two condominium buildings. Beds were hard and pillows are small. Bathroom size is average with bathtub and basic amenities, it was pretty clean but some bath towels they gave to us have stains, old and threadbare.

Their private beach was clean and nice but we did not enjoy it when we saw two large monitor lizards on the beach. I saw one afar and thought it was just a branch of tree not until it was moving and see it closely what it was then another big monitor lizard came from the shrubs. I was scared but other guests enjoyed staring at them. We did not go back to the beach throughout our 2 nights stay and just used the pool instead. The pool is big and clean, at times it was crowded and there were only few sun loungers.

We booked our room without breakfast and never eat in the hotel, we always ate outside because we have a car. The service was good. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. There are food stalls across the road and a bus stop in front of the hotel. Gurney Drive and Batu Ferringhi is 15 minutes drive from the hotel.

Quiet hotel Oct 12, 2011
This is a 3-star hotel located at Tanjung Bunga. If you are keen on water sports - please stay at Batu Feringhi so that U dont have to commute thru and frow by bus or taxi. There is a toy museum right in front of the hotel as well as a bus stop.

On our arrival in the morning, the hotel room was of course not ready so we were offered a complimentary upgrade to the "honeymooners room". This of course got my boyfriend and I very excited. When we entered the room, we find the room angle a bit odd. No, there are no rose petals on the bed as what we would normally expect in a honeymoon suite but of course ours was not a suite. It was a triangular shaped room. At the sharp end was the balcony. There are 2 chairs & a table for us to sit and enjoy the view of the sea. This hotel is obviously old, the furniture are chipped.

Buffet breakfast was quite pathetic. Its mainly local food like noodles or rice for breakfast thus we only ate the hotel breakfast once and ate out the remaining days. We did not try the pool. But the hotel has its own small little private beach. But to do watersports here was impossible and the beach was too small for any beach activities except to lie on the sand. There are private residence nearby so the neighbours kids would be playing at this beach with you should you choose to engage in any activities here.

Finding food nearby is tough and I do not trust the room service after looking at the breakfast spread.

Nice but getting a bit old Jan 04, 2011
This hotel is a kind of far from Georgetown, Old Penang or the airport when compared to the newer one's which have and are sprouting with competitive rates. I had booked my reservation through and agent in India and learnt I could have got accommodated in newer Hotels. Not to say Copthorne is bad, It certainly provides you with good rates on add on stay,has all the amenities for a 4 star,is clean in and out, nice dining, good buffet spread breakfast and dinner and a nice pool.It has earned a reputation and is crowded during weekends.Many rooms are not sea facing so be specific and persistent while checking in.The staff are very co operative and smiling but however the old style of the exterior has not yet caused an impression of a heritage Hotel and is some what an eye sore.
The stationary I possess as a souv…
