My family stayed at Bayview for 2 nights. We were there for a cycling event in Georgetown. The hotel is helpful to arrange for a van to pick us up from the hotel for a small fees.

As expected, it was busy and we didn't mind a wait for our drinks.....however, an hour later we still had not received our drinks and could not find the guy who had taken our order. We spoke to...

We chanced upon the 360 roof top bar at Bayview Hotel, Penang. You can see Penang and the mainland from the bat and revolving restaurant. The music was too loud for our ears but food was delicious. We had meatballs and bruschetta snack.

Everything worked as expected except the wifi, which was decidedly patchy. Sometimes decided I'd logged in with two machines (which I hadn't) and had to be reset downstairs. Sometimes didn't want to play at all. Decor a bit faded but still clean and functional. Staff helpful. Can't comment on Spa or Breakfast as didn't use them.

Large hotel with good facilities.close to heritage area and 20 mins walk from ferry jetty.concierge will arrange travel but if you are on a budget might be cheaper to arrange directly!!taxis are annoying as they wont use meters and some will overcharge particularly when raining.rooftop bar/restaurant worth a visit.
