Dear Guest, Delightful Greetings from The Light Hotel Penang! I would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused to you during your recent stay with us. This comes as a shock to me given the attention we devote to every guest and every transaction. We pride ourselves on warm, friendly and efficient guest service at The Light Hotel Penang and the service you received certainly did not reflect our standards. Be assured this incident will not pass unscrutinised. As for the complimentary items, we provide 2 cans of softdrinks in the minibar and a packet of peanut on the tabletop where the complimentary coffee/tea are placed alongside with the coffee/tea making facilities. Thank you for sharing your feedback which we deeply appreciate. We value your opinion and see it as an opportunity to learn and improve. Best Regards, Raj

Dear Guest, Delightful Greetings from The Light Hotel Penang! Firstly, thank you for your feedback. While I wish, you had a better welcome experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We are committed to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it’s apparent in this case, we fell short. It was a mere coincidence that the earlier room assigned for your arrival had some technicality and we quickly tried our level best for room swap despite the back-to-back situation, hence the delay. We deepyly regret for the inconvenience caused to you and family members. Again, on behalf of my team, I sincerely apologise. I hope you will allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future and and see to it that you enjoy the experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of. Best regards, Raj

Gd day... Just want to know whether Light Hotel having lunch or dinner buffet and the price... Very hard to get info abt it... Yq
Hi. Yes, they do have lunch and dinner buffet with decent spreads. I am not sure about the exact price but it could be between RM 60-80++ depending on the date and theme. They also have a sit down restaurant with lunch sets, but I can't recall if it was on the 2nd or the 3rd floor of the hotel.

Hi, how deep is your deepest section of the pool, and what are the pool's dimensions please?
Please, I need some information about the executive lounge. Snacks and drinks?
Yes available But better you choose some hotel located in Penang island instead, It is far from airport as well as location is not much attractive. To this location traffic jam also another issue

"We did not stay through the night"
"Best to inquire the hotel beforehand if they will be receiving big group from China. If they are, better choose different hotel."
"Not much view to be honest...."
"best view in the night"
"Mall view preferred, the higher in floors the better."
