We had a fantastic few days at the Lone Pine hotel. The room was spacious with a fabulous balcony which we made use of in the evenings. The food was excellent, and a fantastic variety of food at breakfast and the evening buffet meal.
Make sure you book the shuttle service into Georgetown in advance as it gets booked up quickly.
We would recommend a visit to the night market outside the hotel, however make sure you barter for the price for everything, as most are willing to accept as low as 50% of their original asking price; some great bargains to be had here.
There are many things to see in the World Heritage site area, but must be prepared to walk. Parking is not easy to find although available. Some of the recommended food sites are also found within this area. There is a small food court just outside the hotel, which is convenient.
We used to holiday annually in penang during the every school holidays, staying at Golden Sands each time when our children were young. The children have grown and hubby and I returned to Golden Sands and it was just great. It was like coming home! The hotel staff were friendly, the sea view room was absolutely great. Breakfast was abit crowded but the queue moved fast. The shuttle bus to town was so convenient, and after dinner, we enjoyed the evening live music at the lounge at 10 pm at night.
We are a family of 5, with a 10 year old, a 3 year old and a 5 month old! The Kokunut Kiddies Club was superb! Free for the 10 year old, but a rather steep RM 20 per hour for the 3 year old. I particularly recommend the pizza making for RM 5- nice thin crust. Thanks to the staff, we were able to relax too.
