Hiya stayed at the Sunway for 8 nights in December including Xmas eve and day. Left 28th December.

Have to say this was one of the best hotels we stayed in maybe not for comfort but everything else was bob on!!

We stayed on b@b basis the breakfasts was absolutely brilliant some thing different every day and the head chef Mr Po came round to make sure you were happy with everything. If you weren't it was put right there and then. I just happened to mention I was missing mashed spud and that's all I said, the next day it was on the menu with gravy and bangers for brekki!! It was heaven (mash spud settled my stomach if I've had to much spicy food!!(I know I'm weird!!)

The room we had was overlooking the bay, ferry terminal and the bridge in Penang - brill sights. The room was a lovely bright room, spacious and immaculate cleaned the only trouble we had was with the shower when we used it it flooded the bathroom floor which was soaked. The guy came tried to fix it 8 times!! Gave up in the end.

I thought the location wasn't bad we walked to the Komta and Chulia street and got buses to sleeping Buddha and taxi to Koh Locksi temple, with out no trouble. We went to the was museum and the aquarium no problems at all.

As for the staff they were falling over themselves to help you nothing any trouble. The only down side was the bar it was continuously playing Shaggys CD on Xmas eve after the Xmas party instead of lively Xmas music it was so depressing!! The group in charge of the music were Filipino's and they they wouldn't change the music as they were too busy entertaining their friends, so we left. There was a group on every night same group same songs very boring!!

Overall the hotel was really good we would defo go back again.
