This hotel is old and worn, but the rooms are spotless and the team is very kind and service oriented. My bathroom had a blocked sink that took forever to drain and the gym towels smelled smokey. This aside, the view (if you have a seaview room) is a gorgeous one over looking the sea. Gurney drive was quiet so...

The Evergreen Laurel is based on gurney drive. Ask for a sea view room and you get lovely views across the bay. I paid around £40.00 per night inclusive of breakfast for a lovely double room (on my own). Although there is a lot of work taking place in the water, this doesn't impact on the hotel. (Mind August -...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on 10-13 Dec 2016. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Within walking distance to the Gurney Drive food street and Paragon. Great shopping. However, will need to walk a bit to reach a public bus stop.

Located between George Town, which was a 30 minute walk, and Gurney Plaza which was about a 10 minute walk. Hotel is a bit dated but adequate. Rooms are big, quiet and reasonably comfortable. Breakfast was fine but not great. Only problem was that on arrival I found that the toilet had not be cleaned properly. I didn't complain as...

The staff, service and location are real strengths of this hotel. All the staff we warm and extremely sociable. Particularly with my young 1 yo son. The location is excellent on Gurney Drive and walking distance to great restaurants and Hawker markets. The staff will ensure you et a taxi within minutes to anywhere on the island. I was very...

This is an excellent value hotel within easy walking distance of the main touristic area. It's a bit dated but it's very clean and the staff service level is excellent. I couldn't fault it based on price. The rooms are a good size and well Presented. It's not modern but it has character and authenticity.

After spending 3 nights at the much cheaper Armenian Street Heritage Hotel in Georgetown, we stayed another 3 nights here as we had wanted to be in the Gurney area. Though the rates here are about twice as much as the Armenian Street Hotel, we felt this Hotel has fallen short in many areas. Check in was fast and prompt...
