Holiday Inn Resort, Batu Feringghi Review
We had our stay at Holiday Inn Resort during our short trip to Batu Feringghi, Penang. It was indeed a very nice hotel to stay. The room is very spacious, clean and very nice to look at. I love the decoration in the room. Eventhough the bath tub is not that big, but it is good enough for Arsyad to have some fun in it. For me, the room rate is quite reasonable. You can get the cheaper rate at the Feringghi tower and for the hillview room.
2 queen sizes bed
The hotel actually has 2 sections, one is Feringghi tower located at the opposite of the beach and another one is just beside the beach. Both of the towers are connected with a bridge. The swimming pool, restaurant and kids' club are all located at the beach tower. So, if you stay at the Feringghi tower, it will be quite tiring for you to travel back and forth. Luckily we stayed at the beach tower, easy access for us to go to the swimming pool and kids' club area anytime we want.

Arsyad was really having fun in the kids' club area. Kids can even play playstation 3 if i'm not mistaken, but you have to pay for it of coz. Hehe. What I love the most is parents can just lay down while watching our kids playing. They provide some cushions instead of stool or chair for us to sit and lay down. Very comfortable even you can fall asleep while waiting. :-)

The food at the hotel is quite good. We were having breakfast at their cafe, and they actually provided variety of food. I love the sweet's corner where they were serving donuts like JCo's and Big Apple's one, mini cupcakes and muffins, few types of cheese and bread and lots more.
So, overall I give this hotel 5/5. If you wish to stay here if you go to Batu Feringghi, book yours earlier. Some of the hotels were fully booked even it is not a peak season. :-)
