Yes, it's a good place, but book early as there are not that many rooms and they fill quickly, especially on the weekend. I loved the location, the bed was comfortable (apart from the rogue mosquito that came into the bathroom as the window in there is not glassed in - so bring a coil or similar). Even the pillow...

The room was clean and the location is close to Georgetown. The air con and shower worked good and the service was average. They provide fairly dependable wifi it cut out a few times. It is an ok stay for the price

We stayed four nights and enjoyed our stay. If you are expecting a full on hotel you might be disappointed, think hostel/guesthouse style and it will exceed expectations! Location is a short walk to the heart of Georgetown action, but in a bit quieter area. Hutton lodge is beautiful heritage building on the outside. Inside the rooms are fairly basic,... More

The hotel is a bit far away from the real action. A 20 minute walk to Little India for example. Thats to far away. The staff is helpful and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. So the quality is good, but the price is a bit overcharge. The breakfast is a fine location but is still Malaysian: Simple. I'm sure... More

The hostel is in a good location and it is easily walkable to all of Georgetown. The rooms and facilities are basic but clean. There is free wifi throughout. A free breakfast of bread and jam is provided.

Our preference was more towards basic amenity than a larger chill out space, where Hutton Lodge becomes a preferable choice. The stay was neat and clean, Night was peaceful and the good part is its location, where from most of the popular destination can be reached easily. English Breakfast was quite good. Washroom and rooms were mostly clean and decent,... More

I like the Hutton, nice place, friendly helpful staff, good location, I have only ever stayed in the dorm which is clean. Toilets and showers are clean. Will stay again. Can be a little noisy in the dorm as back onto a street but not that bad at all.

We stayed here two nights over New Year, and thought it was clean, friendly and good value for money. The hotel has good parking right in front, and is a short walk from good bars and from the historic old town. If at times it can feel more like a hostel than a hotel, it has good wifi, the rooms...

Hutton Lodge is a lovely clean simple accommodation. Great location, walking distance from main bus station and easy to catch local buses. Only a 15MR taxi to jetty. It really is only somewhere to sleep though. The free breakfast is not really a breakfast, unless you like a piece of white toast with strawberry jam every morning. No cereal nor... More
