The hotel is a little old. Some areas may need some upgrading. Nevertheless, it is one place good for a peaceful relaxing weekend. The room we had was simple, but served its purpose. It had a large fixed glass panel that allowed a good view of the trees surrounding the hotels. Staffs were friendly. and helpful.

Celebrating Chap Goh Meh at Bellevue Hotel Penang Hill with the full moon beckoning was the best getaway after a year of a “pandemic imprisonment” of an initial lockdown followed by a “forever extended” MCO . At an elevation of 800 meters above sea level with a sprawling panoramic terrace at the back of the hotel , social distancing is a snap. The full moon was glowing by 8 pm for a sumptuous dinner on Bellevue s signature steamboat of fresh seafood . The fresh air, a vital weapon against Covid-19 and relaxed atmosphere restored my senses which have experienced profound disruption from the pandemic aggravated by a broken hip from a bad fall last July. Fireworks from an adjacent bungalow lit up the sky at 10 pm to mark the end of the lunar Chinese New Year . But my flight of fantasy had just begun with Yiling Chang singing the famous aria to the moon from “ Rusalka” and another from “Samson and Delilah”. At midnight, I stepped out onto the lawn to bask in the constellation of stars above , humbled by its vast expanse, whilst Georgetown sparkled like a mine of jewels below . The cool natural breeze lulled me to sleep at 1 am and I awoke at 630am refreshed to sun-sight just as it emerged like a ray of hope in the horizon. After a hearty breakfast I revisited the aviary to say hello to my dear old friends - the green parrot and the two male peacocks perched high up with their feathers hanging down like an elegant emerald evening gown . I tip-toed up close and personal with my dear forlorn hornbill and was dazzled by the lovely yellow and red bromeliads blooming. The connectivity with nature rejuvenated me so after a quick lunch, I lingered till 5 pm to savour the fresh air and scenic views before I left reluctantly with the hotel ‘s 4WD downhill.

The ambiance is superb! Room is clean but furniture is old. This is a small room which has less than 20 rooms on ground & 1st floor. We stayed at 1st floor room facing the greens. Honestly the room is very simple & basic. Our room rate incl simple english breakfast. What i like most about this hotel is the small garden that has magnificent view of Penang island. Early morning we wake up to wait for the sun rise, wonderful feeling.

Once on top of Penang Hill, after struggling through all the tourists milling around the funicular top station area aimlessly taking endless selfies, it is such a relief to walk into the Bellevue Hotel for a spot of tea and lunch. It's so wonderful that the mass asian tourists don't like old colonial charm, leaving the Bellevue's garden deck, overlooking the world far below, to a few select people who appreciate the charming scene. We had lunch, the sweet and sour chicken and the curry chicken, both of which were quite tasty. The service, albeit a little vague, was nonetheless perfectly suited to the atmosphere, and we were well satisfied in that regard. The samosas were also delicious. My only complaint was that they, along with every other hotel in Asia, grand or modest, have taken to teabag-only tea. What has happened to the fine old Asian tradition of a good cup of Indian tea. Teabags are a horrible taste. Please get some loose-leaf tea on hand for those how appreciate fine tea. Cost was reasonable, and I could have sat there longer enjoying the scenery. One point of recommendation to management - you really have overdone the flag thing. last time we were there in 2013, you only had two or three flags - now you can't see out on any angle without those silly things flapping in your vision. They don't fit with the more mature sensibility that Bellevue represents.

Spend a night at Bellevue Hotel. Staff at the reception were friendly and showed us around on arrival. Had dinner at the restaurant, we enjoyed the food with a beautiful view of the garden and the bonus was the full moon and clear view of the island and mainland. Took beautiful pictures. We were back the next morning to view the sunrise as recommended by the Manager. Overall, we had a great time on this short stay.
