Love the hospitality from all the staffs. If I need to pick on 1 thing to improve it would have to be the sound proofing especially if you are staying at the lower floor as anyone guest who stays above just need to pull a chair or walk a lil bit harder we would get a full load of the sound. While I am perfectly aware that itโ€™s a colonial building and the owners are preserving it to the best level possible but perhaps additional carpet would do the trick?

Accomodation Hiccup
During my stay , the hotel notified that breakfast IS NOT SERVED ( to all guests) , which they had already informed hotels.com among others. On the other hand, Hotels.com had stated on their booking website that a continental breakfast is included in my hotel rate. Please rectify this misinformation.! Thank you.

5 stars services. Staffs were very friendly. Got room tour and brief of history during the check-in. Located at the center of Georgetown and walkable distance most of attractions. Although it's a small mansion but it has everything that you need. Pool was nice, room was clean and spacious and do enjoy at the lounge area as it was very relax to sit in. Compliment snacks and drinks and free-flow Wine tasting session severed on limited time everyday with free-flow cheese too! The owner and manager did greet us warmly and even sent us off during our check out. Worth every penny. Highly recommended.

No where else but here
There is nothing not to like about this hotel. The minute you step in you feel welcome right away. We were checked in by Sofia and Haris. Sofia helped us with our luggage. The check in was very quick. Everything about this hotel is superb. The decor, the room but we really stands out is their impeccable service. Absolutely 1st class. The Hotel Manager Ivan Khoo even addressed us by our 1st name, now if that's not 1st class than what. I really love the lounge where you can get coffee and treats all day long. The minute we checked out my daughter wanted to go back again. You guys at Edison really rock. You definitely understand hospitality. Keep it up guys. We shall be back soon.
