          Awesome - the view of the room was splendid. ”

          Size of room. View.

          After two nights in the centre of Georgetown, we traveled to the Gurney Drive area and stayed at The Northam All Suites. Despite it being a rather dated hotel, it was very affordable and the size of the room and the view compensated for it. The room was huge and at 50sqm, it was probably five times bigger than your average shoe box sized hotel room in Singapore at half the price. We paid around $100 a night and it came with a living room, a toilet, the king sized bed with an ensuite bathroom with two huge mirrors, showering facilities, toilet and a jacuzzi tub. What wowed me away was definitely the view. If you've the luxury of time during your trip to Penang, Gurney Drive would be a lovely area to visit. There are two huge shopping centres there, Gurney Paragon and Gurney Plaza. It's a twenty minutes walk away from the hotel I stayed at, so perhaps might not be a good option if travelling with the elderly or very young children.

          EXCEPTIONAL STAY AND VALUE FOR MONEY”

          I've booked 4 rooms of Junior Suite include breakfast for 2 nights woth RM1330. Its really value for money. I've requested rooms at high floor, smoking room and all rooms to be in the same floor and they gave me all I wanted. Staying at room at 38th floor with seaview was really wonderful. Eventhough the hotel looks quite old especially its furniture but for me, its okay as long as the rooms is clean. Having our breakfast at Coffee House was satisfying. Lots of choices and its delicious. I've tried fried rice, chicken curry, bread pudding and samosa. Overall, I satisfied and happy with this exceptional stay at The Northam All Suite Penang, surely will recommend this hotel to others. Thank you for your service!

          Service, Food and Location

          While on a visa run, we stayed at The Northam for two nights. Not only it is well situated (a few minutes by car from the Gurney mall...you could actually walk there), but the rooms present a great view of the ocean. The hotel lobby was nicely decorated and welcoming. The staff was attentive, polite and eager to serve. The suite we stayed in is quite spacious! Having a "side room with a desk was a huge plus since I had to work online at the time of my trip. The living room was clean and had all the usual amenities that can help a family with small children feel at home (complimentary water, electric kettle, frigobar, etc.). The room was very clean and had a comfortable king-size bed. The bathroom has double sink and a shower with great water pressure. It also has a nice jacuzzi. For some reason, the water in the toilet would not stop running. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to tell the staff. Since our visa process delayed, I extended my stay one extra night. The staff was very efficient and made the process go smoothly. I was also impressed by the fact that the general manager made an effort to memorize my name and called me by name every time. The night that we arrived we ate dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The food was cooked to perfection and very tasty. In the morning, they served a buffet style breakfast (part of my package) with lots of options of fruits, bread, drinks and other breakfast food. The entire time, the staff was attentive and quick to refill your cup of coffee or bring something to your table. The only not-so-good thing is the parking situation...since the hotel shares the parking lot with another company, finding a parking spot can be scarce and inconvenient (in the back). The internet was a little slow, but I want to think that at night many people are using it. For the quality of the service, location and food, I believe the price is fair and a good deal. I look forward to taking my family there again one of these days.

          super friendly staff, yummy nice breakfast buffet & comfortable clean room

          Superb! We would like to give a big applause & huge praises to all the staff of Northam All Suite Penang for making our 2 day stay pleasant & enjoyable. The staffs are super friendly. We love the breakfast buffet. Everything is so great except that the room jaccuzzi (bath tub) is leaking thus causing the bathroom floor wet (a small flood). We checked in on Friday 2pm, but the parking space are fully parked. The carpark are limited especially during working hour as this hotel is sharing with commercial lot. We have to park our car at the highest level which is very inconvenient as we need to take the stair to the lobby

          This is my first stay in Northam All Suites hotel and this hotel really meet my holiday purposed. Room rate is cheap and u get jacuzzi in all room! The cons maybe the breakfast but not so much about it. Although it is not next to the beach but it's located at the end of gurney and easy access to all tourist attraction in Penang. I will definitely will stay here again.

          Functional laminate and marble flooring add to comfort level of room

          accommodation is spacious and well planned. lots of nice finishing touches. the northam is several years old and has a pleasant, classical, almost art deco feel to it. its worth overlooking the bits of wear and tear to enjoy the comfort level the rooms/suites provide at a good tariff. breakfast is probably one of the best i have had in a hotel. staff were always pleasant and efficient, which meant the eating environment remained clean,tidy and well stocked. its location at a junction with the south end of gurney drive makes it ideal for a scenic stroll or to enjoy balai hai (fish restaurant on gurney) and the wealth of easy to access food, beverage and shopping experiences the gurney area offers.

          This is the second time i was in The Northam All Suite. As always, there's nothing much to qualm about. The stay was good, the room is fantastic. Not to miss, the infinity pool at level 9. Though it is quite narrow, the view is truly magnificent. Took a stroll to Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon located about 20 mins from the hotel (depending on how your walking style is). Food court next to Gurney Plaza is where should you be heading to for dinner.

          we had a perfect time whilst staying at northam. besides me, my other sisters also stayed at the same hotel for that weekend. so altogether we booked 4 rooms. no regrets! perfect time started from the humble bell boys, the perfect huge room facing the sea, the delicious wide spread breakfast. the location is in town, so easy access to the popular nasi kandar, penang hill, gurney drive, and many more attractions. about 20 minutes drive to the sea though...

          high floors, nice view of the city and gurney beach

          when i was checking in i was surprised to find out that i was upgraded to the deluxe suite. didn't think much about it since it was free. there were only 2 lifts so you'd have to wait for a while. there was also no lift for parking and you have to take the stairs, which is very 18th century. they gave me a room on the 33 floor which is a smoking floor when i specifically requested in my agoda booking for a non-smoking room, but the room didn't stank of cigarette so its fine. the deluxe suite is huge, you have a living area, a study table, 2 toilets and 1 bath with a jacuzzi. my room was a corner unit so the view was absolutely fantastic. the decor is slightly dated, but it was comfortable and clean. they had complimentary wireless internet but the speed was rather slow, the lan port in the room didn't work, there was a fax machine in the room. truly a business hotel. while the location is near gurney drive, its quite a walk, you would need a car to get around penang really.

          Spacious Room with Fantastic Bathroom, but TOO many cockroaches.”

          I loved this hotel from the moment I stepped into room 2806. Spacious, separate sitting room and bedroom, it was well laid out, with a beautifully large marble bathroom that had his-and-hers sinks, a separate shower area and a huge jacuzzi bath tub. Sadly though, the wooden flooring was already showing decay, with wood tiles popping (which made the floor rather "crunchy" and noisy to walk on). Furniture is pretty old and dated, but it was still comfortable enough. The bed was king-sized and FIRM (I loved that, but it might be a tad too hard for some), with two separate blankets, hence there was no need to fight for cover. *grin* The saddest thing is that Northam All Suites has got a TERRIBLE cockroach infestation. The German Cockroach kind, which are smaller than the usual Asian ones. During my 3 night stay, I killed at least 4, and missed 6 others (I'm actually TERRIFIED of cockroaches). One was even perched on the unused coffee cup, so I suggest washing all the cups before making tea. Perhaps the popping wooden tiled floor provided cover for those cockroaches to hide in? Buffet breakfast was included in the price (fantastic value for money!), and it was a reasonable spread. I must say that the nasi lemak was pretty good, with crispy & crunchy ikan bilis (well-fried anchovies) and a decent sambal. The potato samosas were most excellent too. I wish the hotel would provide butter, instead of margarine, which tastes pretty plastic to me. Other than that, buffet breakfast was good. The hotel is within walking distance to many restaurants (the housing estate behind the hotel) and directly opposite the front of the hotel is the Northam Beach Cafe which is an open-air, al fresco hawker centre that's really, in my opinion, for the unsuspecting tourists. Lots of beer available there, and its by the sea. The hotel is at the tail end of Gurney Drive and not near shopping malls (unless you're prepared to walk at least 20 minutes)

A hall, a working place, zaccuzi, make-up room and giant bed can easily accomodate 3-4 adults. If you do not mind walking in the evening, you can walk to Gurney's hawker centre at Gurney Drive, and will take you about 20-30 minutes. I will choose Northam All Suite again if I happen to be in Penang.

          we (two adults, one child) stayed at the northam all suites in a deluxe suite for a week. the suite was very large and was great for our length of stay. the northam is in a great location - close to george town (5 minutes in taxi if not too bad traffic) and 5 minutes the other way to gurney drive for eating, shopping mall etc. and a ten minute walk to the burmese and thai buddhist temples. also, just behind the hotel are a couple of interesting small streets (jalan servis) where we stumbled upon an excellent banana leaf curry restaurant (passions of spices). but the best food find was across the road from the hotel - the northam beach cafe. the hotel staff were very friendly and, on the whole, our requests were responded to in a timely manner.

Spa was not pricey. However, there was no direct access to elevator from parking lot, so had to drop off luggage at the entrance before you enter car park, otherwise you'll be carrying luggage through stairs. Overall, it was great stay at Northam Suite and we'll definitely come back to stay on next trip.
