delighted with my room, spacious,good air conditioning and shower. No restaurant or bar but lots of choices within minutes. 10 minutes walk to sandy beach. Excellent location and great value for money.
We used to holiday annually in penang during the every school holidays, staying at Golden Sands each time when our children were young. The children have grown and hubby and I returned to Golden Sands and it was just great. It was like coming home! The hotel staff were friendly, the sea view room was absolutely great. Breakfast was abit crowded but the queue moved fast. The shuttle bus to town was so convenient, and after dinner, we enjoyed the evening live music at the lounge at 10 pm at night.
We had a fantastic few days at the Lone Pine hotel. The room was spacious with a fabulous balcony which we made use of in the evenings. The food was excellent, and a fantastic variety of food at breakfast and the evening buffet meal.
Make sure you book the shuttle service into Georgetown in advance as it gets booked up quickly.
We would recommend a visit to the night market outside the hotel, however make sure you barter for the price for everything, as most are willing to accept as low as 50% of their original asking price; some great bargains to be had here.
The location makes it easily accessible from the airport & the markets & restaurants. The staff was very cooperative & pleasant. Quite a good variety for the buffet breakfast & good menu at the cafe catering to International food as well.
We are a family of 5, with a 10 year old, a 3 year old and a 5 month old! The Kokunut Kiddies Club was superb! Free for the 10 year old, but a rather steep RM 20 per hour for the 3 year old. I particularly recommend the pizza making for RM 5- nice thin crust. Thanks to the staff, we were able to relax too.

We were looking just for a room to sleep after visiting penang. This is a wooden roof guest house so if you are looking for a hotel like facilities then you better find some other place.
There is no daily cleaning of room and
Towels will be changed only on request (note, there is no phone service to call guest house staff so you have to literally walkin to next door in order to request).
"Pleasant and simple, great location by the beach."
Hotel was very simple and quiet. Basic bathroom facilities, and nothing much else. Hotel run my nice family, don't speak much english. 40 metres from the beach in Batu Ferringhi and 100 metres from night market and yum food places! No air-con in my room, only a ceiling fan so it was quite hot, but breeze from ocean is nice through the windows. If you're looking for peace and quiet, and simplicity, this is perfect for you.
