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

Hutton Lodge is a good base to explore GeorgeTown from, key areas are not far away at all. The Lodge itself is good value for money, it is clean and basic and shabbily comfortable, things are a little bit faded, but everything works and you have everything you need. It was quiet while I was there, I hardly saw anyone... More

I've stayed at Hutton Lodge for twice. I like the way this heritage building is turned into a guest house, without destroying it's authentic architectural structure. Having a relaxed communal space at the lobby and outside of the building is an added value for the entire environment. Strategically located behind the street filled with bars and pubs. By walking distance,... More

In many respects I can understand some reviewers finding Hutton Lodge disappointing and maybe I was a little surprised by it myself. Staying only two nights in Penang meant that whatever "flaws" Hutton Lodge may have over a longer term certainly did't affect me much. I booked and stayed in a double room with ensuite and A/C. Location is great... More

Dear Ah JAck, We are sorry for your unpleasant experience with us and we will take action to tackle all this problems. Regarding the type of room's reserved, i think there is a misunderstanding because from the confirmation email from you, the type of room is "dbl/twin room shared b/room", so our dbl room is fully booked so we give...
