“Disgusting Bathroom in a Renovated Hotel”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Reception staff were a bit disorganized at first but were courteous. The lady manager clearly knew her stuff and recommended day tours right away and made sure we were taken care of the next morning as we awaited departure. The lobby and room itself were renovated but the bathroom was lightly touched and is disgusting! Stains and mould everywhere and looked worse than an old hostel, which drives this bad rating. Balcony door was broken and required some pushing an shoving to get out to enjoy the sea view. The hotel is a short walk from the McD, supermarket, and a few restaurants while the jetty is about 10-15 minutes away. A cab would cost 10 ringgit only.

The hotel has functional rooms and are fairly clean but it is not near anything. You have to take a taxi to not only get to the beach but to breakfast or dinner too. So really unless you want to stay in Kuah for meetings or some strategic average Malaysian town with nothing of great interest to see purposes that I can not fathom don't stay here. You didn't spend all that money to get to Langkawi to stay here.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Located about 500 meters from Seaview Hotel , where you need to first checkin , they provide transport to the apartment after you have checkin .You may use facilities at the hotel , but not worth walking the 500 m , when there is not much ' facilities' The apartment block is half leased out to staff of the local radio station, there is no security and units need to be maintained , most of the furnitures are most probably 'used' transferred from the hotel. I stayed with my family in unit D4 on the 4th floor, the key to the main door is jammed , the lock on the sliding front door is broken , the lock to the common toilet is also broken .But the place is cleaned and the cleaners comes daily around 12pm. The is no cable Tv , only the local stations , but on the 3rd day of my stay , they came to install "NJOI" a local cable station with educational programmes ( who cares , we are not here to watch TV ) There is no WiFi either . Overall ok , for rm260.00 ( usd 90 ) per night it worth the money , esp if there is around 6 to 10 people in your family.

Nothing about this hotel was worth the price we paid (~US$80 during the holiday). Rooms: The bathroom was not very clean, dead cockroach in the hallway in the morning, no hand towels, cheap furniture, balcony door broken and wouldn't close let alone lock, and a lackluster mattress. Service: OK but definitely not with a smile. Breakfast: Better than expected, especially considering everything else. Location: Worst location on the island without much around (~11 mile or more drive/taxi to beaches, airport and frankly anything else). Overall: There are numerous beach places to stay that are cheaper and could not be as bad.

The front office staff, and in particular Linda, were very helpful, friendly and well informed. The room was very comfortable with a good view over the bay, and it was good having the outside balcony.
A little out of town, but then again I'm not sure that there was much to "town" anyway.
Grab a cab and take a tour.

Langkawe sea view Hotel is in prime location,very close to the ferry station and the Eagle square. We took a ferry from kuala kedara side, Penang and reach within 2 hours to Langakwe ferry terminal. The cabin temperature was too cold,you need to take warm clothe to be comfortable. It took only five minutes to the Hotel. Sea-view is a nice hotel within affordable cost.too much rush due to year ending festival holidays etc.Swimming pool water was very cold but height of the pool is very much safe for all age.water quality is maintained with chlorination,so no risk of contamination with germs.
Breakfast in the morning was excellent.Lot of varieties of food available,so you can choose anything from the table.Good wifi in the lobby.Hotel staff was very cooperative.Any kind of help require they ready to provide like tour operation,renting vehicle etc.linda at the reception was very much helpful to us.
Hotel bedrooms were very clean with abundant supply of toiletries.extra bed was available before we enter the room.

Room Tip: Book the rooms ahead of time as it is very close to the ferry,it is people choice
