Gurney Hotel Penang

After paying a visit to the monkeys, we went to check-in to Gurney Hotel. But the adjoining rooms were not ready yet. Waited more than half an hour before we went up to our 35th floor. One room was super cool but unfortunately the other room was super hot.. Complained to them and they gave us another room few doors away.

To cut the story short, the front manager was so nice, she gave us another 2 extra complimentary breakfast for the inconvenience caused, so instead of 4 free breakfast, we have 6..... Well, Gurney is not bad, huh... but then it was not our fault, we told them that so much time was wasted from one room to another that we finally settled in at around 3.30pm.

Gurney Hotel along Gurney Drive

waiting for our rooms to be ready...

our guests...

we love staying here...
the rooms are very big, jacuzzi bathtubs, 2 tables
a giant bed, a long sofa.. my room rate is RM210

took a walk while waiting for our rooms...

love the sea....

two by two...

later in the evening we went down to the hotel recreation

they went for a dip-dip

just look at the edge.. 7 floors down, dont over-swim..
but of course, no one will swim over the edge...

both having a good time..

then she realized she forgotten to put on sun lotion.. cham!

non-swimmers have a game of table tennis...

children's pool is the best.. safer and fun!
