                Staff were helpful and courteous. Good spa facilities. Great breakfast range and nice view of the sea. Overall an enjoyable stay

              • Single
                5.8

                Room comfort ok and good value for money except for internet connectivity. Breakfast buffet acceptable and standard of service in line with the exspectation - dated and in need of uplifting in line with other facilitise and services.

                The advertised internet connection in the room is not functioning and the forced of the laptop in the wireless zone reception area most inconvenient and annoying as no quiet zone. The entertainment in the lounge is very poor and hence no wonder that guests do not utilize this outlet as the standard is very poor.Location of the hotel totally unsuitable for single travelers.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Evergreen Laurel is a slightly oldfashioned but well maintained hotel with very friendly and efficient staff as well as good and reasonably priced restaurants; well located for shopping and sight seeing; some local restaurants nearby; My family (incl. 2 little children) were happy with the hotel and loved Georgetown. I recommend to rent a car for longer stays (very satisfied with Kasina car rental).

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                The room was surprisingly a good size, well kept and clean. Great location for a lot of walking.

                The Receptionist was appalling and we thought we would not like to stay as they were unhelpful and unwilling to help us with our query.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Nothing much.. its comfort.. the room is clean

                the air conditioner is not very cooling.. the spa voucher should change to others and the services should be provided at the spa centre! the rooms for two but they are only giving me one voucher which only can use by one person?

                friends staying at nearby g hotel could extend checkout to 5pm without extra charge. Evergreen charged me half the one-day rate

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The facilities and comfort of the room really help me get a good night's rest. I would like to return for a longer stay

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                Just a small thing that when i requested for a copy of Quran to read, although a copy of Bible was lying in the drawer. I feel that majority of the customers are muslims and the as i know more than 65% of the locals are muslims, the hotel should have been generous enough to keep a copy if not in the hotel room, alteast in the reception.I being an indian did not find the locality around to have any indian restaurant in the walking distance. Batu Firenge is a better locality for indians also because the local market is in BF.

                I had a sea facing room on 14th floor. Nice room, quite spacious, with great view.

                There is no beach here - only the pool.

                Effortless check-in & out.

                House keeping always came too early to make up the room while I was still asleep. Did not offer to help me with my baggage a few times I was laden with bags.

                The price is reasonable.

                It is quite far from the international airport.
