The Holiday Inn Resort Penang is a popular family orientated hotel at tourist beach Batu Ferringhi, with easy access to the exciting night markets, world-class restaurants and varied shops. The building is located next to the beach and it is split into two wings, Beach Wing and Batu Ferringhi Tower. The latter has views of the sea and town and both are joined by a glass-covered walkway. There is a kids’ club at the resort, along with a choice of family activities such as tennis and Ping Pong. For fitness junkies or those who need some exercise encouragement, the gym boasts views of monkeys from the window!
There are 358 good sized rooms at the Holiday Inn Penang, including Family Studios and Kids Suites, which come equipped with bunk beds and in-room PlayStation 3 consoles. Children under the age of 12 get to stay and eat for free with paying parents. Tue Lobby Lounge serves lunch, dinner and dessert and the Terrace Cafe is open from early in the morning until late in the evening. The popular breakfast buffet caters to a wide range of tastes and nationalities.

Not quite the 4 star they make out. They do not tell you there is 2 hotels one over the road.No toothbrush in room, had to ask for one.
The price advertised is not the atual price you pay, so be very carful. 4 nights price was advertised at £189, which the hotel take care of payment, how convienient, they took actually £229 which I was not happy with, they take various tax etc which i did not have to pay anywhere else whilst in Penang only the 10% Tax . So very decieving really as the hotel was not worth that.
On a good note the breakfats was plentifull.
Room a decent size but in need of modernasation very dated. Comfy bed though!!
This Spa did a very great job in relieving our stress... The Staff are very helpful. Staff Aikei, our therapists June and Jenny are very good in their forte. The package is very nice... so guyz pls come and visit the Spacation when you visit Holiday Inn. 2 Thumbs up! Thank you guyz!
