It's an old house converted to a guest house. Location is good, close to a bus stop, walikg distance to most of attranction within town. I booked for a female dorm, but I was placed into a mix dorm room since full, but I was only one sleeping in the room anyway. There were Thai college students, so I couldn't... More

Pros : To me, Hutton Lodge is an elegant and a beautiful 'old lady'. What impresses me most is, the staff keep the place spotlessly clean. In fact, I would recommend this place for long-stay because this old colonial bungalow really makes you feel like home. If you are one of those who live to eat, all the good food... More

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
