8/10 Very good

Nice hotel but tired for a 5 star hotel
Hotel is looking tired. Needs a good clean and fresh paint. Service was very mixed, excellent at the bar but poor at breakfast (making my own pot of tea rather than waiting 20 min for someone to bring it)

6/10 Good

Not within our expectations
Come with a high expectation but was so disappointed. First, the room was not really clean as is parquet flooring u can see the dust clearly. Found a KY Jel in the drawer that was the most disgusting thing. The aircon cannot be on the highest cause the fan coil will created some noise. On the same time, the fan cannot on higher speed cause will also create noise. If we on 1 speed, the fan will die on us.

Hurricane Sunny
I stayed six nights in early February. Because the location was great, I walked to restaurants and shops in Georgetown. My room was big and had a sea view. The cleaning crews cleaned my room twice a day. The front desk staff was friendly, polite, and helpful. However, during six nights of staying at E & O, I have had some negatives feelings about this hotel. First, some guest were pretty rude. They talked so loudly in the hallway, and their conversations woke me up a few times. I was not sure it was their culture or they were simply rude. It was really irritated me many nights. I almost shouted at them, "Shut up. Let me sleep." The other negative experience was at the restaurant. Some staff was great, but some simply didn’t care for their guests. The receptionist never greeted me. The chef who prepared noodles simply didn't want to explain to me what kinds of noodles he could offer me when I asked question. Also, the buffet food was same everyday, I gave up eating at the hotel. Instead, I went out and enjoyed delicious food.

2/10 Poor

The main complaint was from my guest who checked in at room 922. When we returned at night after dinner he found a disgusting smell from the bed. He thought the sheets were not cleaned. He called housekeeping a d they did come and change the sheets. When we spoke to the duty manager the excuse given was " the smell was probably from the chemicals used". On checking my room, I found the small rug had not been vacumned. This on the day we checked in. My question - if it was chemical smell then is that not a concern as the fumes must be a health concern.
