This charming small lodge makes an ideal base from which to explore fascinating Georgetown and its surrounding areas.
Communication with the management was impeccable from the start, and we were made to feel welcome and equipped with all of the local knowledge we needed for a fantastic holiday.
The rooms are simple, comfortable and in keeping with the understated elegance and authenticity of the overall renovation. We stayed in two different rooms over several short stays, alternating with our visits to other parts of Georgetown and Penang.
We enjoyed both rooms - Cempaka is larger than Areca but we had a slight preference for the peaceful and cosy quality of Areca. The generous touches of welcoming drinks and snacks, along with the exquisite freshly picked flowers in the rooms each day, all help to add to the ambience.
The staff here are great - warm, personable and always willing to help. The extensive knowledge and enthusiasm of owner Cheah is a definite plus , with his commitment to helping to preserve and share Perenakan culture.
We would highly recommend Betel Nut Lodge to first-time visitors as well as to those who are return visitors.
Thankyou Cheah and team for helping to make our stay memorable!More
