Good location in George Town with all the local sights and street art easily accessible in a loop from the hotel. Sites further afield such as the national park and Panang Hill can be reached by the bus stop outside the 7-11 at the bottom of the road (buses 101 and 201/203/204 respectively). Our room was in middle of the... More

The room was OK, plain and simple, and the bed was good. The doors to the bedrooms are very heavy. Carpets in the public areas are badly stained, and the included breakfast was only two pieces of toast. They gave us two towels but there was no soap in the place.

The Hutton lodge is a very nice collonial hotel. It is perfectly located both near the Komtar bus station (getting you to any Penang highlight) and the old town centre, however just outside of the busy crowds that swarm the rest Georgetown. The Hotel is clean, air conditioned and the staff is ultra friendly. Just to be sure, bring earplugs... More

This lodge never fails me in term of its cleanliness, room size, and within the walking distance of the Penang Heritage trails.The internet connection is the something that needs to work on and I had informed the management during my past few stays. Breakfast is nothig to shout about and they are plenty of restaurants around to try. Afterall, Penang... More

I did not know Penang well, neither the prevailing prices,so seeing in the net that this hotel was in the best location, and the price for a double was reasonable, we originally booked in for a week. The surroundings of the entire hotel only speaks of it. Very clean, specious with a beautiful garden well maintained. Rooms big, clean and... More

When you first arrive, you are truly impressed by the beautiful, restored building. Unfortunately, the owners neglected to keep that character and unique flair in the rest of the Lodge. Although the staff was not outright rude, they seemed completely disinterested in making us feel welcome. Most of the time I felt like it was a private home that I... More

I was so disappointed by Hutton Lodge. It's too expensive for the quality of rooms, service and breakfast. We asked to change of rooms when we arrived because there were insects in the bathroom and a bad smell. All the building is very basic inside, with still this horrible old and dirty carpet on the floor The 2nd room was... More

We stayed 2 weeks with a baby under 1 year old, and it was a great experience. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the lodge itself was clean and well kept. The location was perfect for exploring Penang, with a lot of great restaurants nearby.

Myself and two friends stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel was cheap, clean, basic but lovely. It was also a great escape from the bustling Georgetown. Breakfast was two pieces of toast, juice and coffee. The hotel has a lovely exterior - with areas to chill and read your book.

We stayed here for 3 days, as we struggled to find decent budget accommodation in Georgetown -we found the area to be pretty overpriced for Asian standards. We were a bit reluctant to stay here as it was shared bathrooms and we normally opt for en suite, but actually the bathrooms were very clean, and the place wasn't very busy... More
