Situated in Georgetown at the intersection of Farquhar Road and Penang Road, the Eastern & Oriental is 20 km from the Bayan Lepas International Airport and a stone's throw from the food havens, shopping complexes and entertainment outlets of downtown Georgetown.
The bygone era of a glorious past is seen the minute you catch a glimpse of this imposing white colonial building. Warm lingering feelings of elegance greet you as you drive up the courtyard and walk into the spacious domed lobby. At a glance, everything about the hotel, from the porter's uniform to the enchanting ambience sets us down memory lane, to the good old days of Malaya. It proudly retains the old-world charm it has been recognized for, even with the infusion of modernity.
