Penang Weekend Getaway : The Northam All Suites

Gurney Drive,

Choosing a hotel during travel is a bit tricky for us.
We have to be smart and did a lot of surveys to get a good value.
Wish we can just simply choose Hard Rock, or G hotel without worry about the price.. errrrrr....

After a couple days of searching, we found a hotel nearby Gurney Drive with OK view.
The hotel cost us about RM 275.00 a night as studio suites with 1 super king bed, 
1 living room, 1 guess' toilet and our own toilet.

With some old Jacuzzi in it.

The Living room and bedroom

The hotel not exactly located on Gurney Drive, but walking distance.
When the first time we arrived and check around.
I found that the hotel is a bit stingy in providing amenities.
Not enough shower gel, not enough hand towel,
Not enough soap and hand wash..

If you noticed the bed's picture,
There is some funny shape at the bed cover.
The funny shape came from two -queen size bed cover arrange together to cover the king-size bed.
I guess they don't have a-big-enough bed cover and duvet..


kind of funny,
But it's OK
The hotel itself a bit outdated but quite clean.

View around

All the rooms are sea-view
With tiny fishing boat and some container move around every second.
And nice hot sunrise.

Gurney's beach is not a sandy beach to swim and sunbathe,
But more of a corner side of Port Area.
We can't really swim in it because the water is too dirty (well, I saw some general worker have a picnic, catch the fish and swim near the sewage area and they are looking happy)

But the Gurney offered a nice walking path to run and jog around.

Checking and checking

The swimming pool is at 9th floor. 
Not that big but just nice with cool view.
We made a couple rounds to cool us down.

Nothing really fancy here,
But comfy enough to sleep.
