Splendid! This place is under-rated. ”

Booked the Hickory for our family of 4 to experience an unrushed full day in Penang Hill visiting the Habitat, Curtis Crest, Langur Way Canopy Walk, the Ziplines, to enjoy exclusive, unobstructed views of George Town and feel the cooler air, to witness sunrise and sunset. Was given detailed guidelines on getting there by Raj whom also promptly responded to all my enquiries. We took Grab to Lower Station on a Tue morning, reached at 9.30am and was informed the funicular train only stops at the lower tunnel station (where The Hickory is) every hour. So despite being our turn to board, we were directed to wait at the fast lane area till 10am. The ride up was nice as you get to board the front carriage if you are alighting along the way. Travel light so you do not occupy too much space in the cabin and is easier on the pathways and steep slopes to and from Hickory. Alternatively you could book a 4-wheel drive in advance which helps save time from queuing. If u take train up, buy a one way ticket up and only buy for your way out upon leaving the hills when you reach the lower station. Queuing for the train to make your way down to Hickory could be madness on a rainy day with large crowd. Priority is not given even if you are a guest staying there, not forgeting that the stop at your station is only permitted hourly. This is because the stops will slow down the movement of the queue. On a dry day, consider walking downhill as it takes only about 15 min and here, the temp is 5 degrees lower than average in Penang. The queues are the only reason I gave the place 4 instead of 5 stars. We opted for steamboat dinner. There was another group and we made friends after dinner. It was even colder at night and in the morning which we loved. Had western breakfast outdoor over-looking Georgetown. If you come in group of at least 7, you could take up the entire upper deck. Overall, the place was what I expected, but what's more amazing was the night view of George town from

Quiet ambience”

We loved our time at Hickory with Mr Raj and his wonderful team. A cosy room in a colonial-style renovated guesthouse, complete with original tiled floors. The stunning view of Penang at night and at sunrise is very hard to beat, along with sensational meals for dinner and breakfast, more than we could eat. Hickory is close to the funicular railway but in a quiet location, walkable to The Habitat or to Kopi Hutan coffee shop. Simply delightful and next time we’ll stay longer.
