Thank you!
Ascott has never failed my expectation. I booked the one bedroom residence for my birthday celebration. It was huge room with sea view from the bedroom and bathroom. I could see the beautiful sunrise in the morning. The breakfast was great with wide spread of choices. The staff are friendly too. I wish to special thank you Peggy from the Front Desk who help me with my personal matter. Thank you Peggy! I will definitely stay in Ascott Penang on my next visit.
