Fabulous find!
We booked Betel Nut Lodge at the very last minute (afternoon of the first night) and what a fabulous find it turned out to be. Lovely old building and simple but lovely rooms with really nice features including traditional lamps and four poster bed. Great mix of ceiling fan and aircon too. Perfect location for all Georgetown restaurants, street food and attractions, and close to the main bus station for trips further afield. Our hosts couldn’t have been better. They were gentle but really welcoming and willing to answer questions and help us make the most of our fleeting visit to Penang. Perfect balance of friendly and kind but not intrusive. The local hot beverages and biscuits offered at bedtime were a lovely touch.

Lovely stay in historic hotel
My 18 yr old son and I loved our stay at Betel Nut. A refurbished traditional 3 or 4 story building in the heart of Penang. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and after settling in our room,they brought up a pot of tea and delicious almond cookies. Clean and comfortable room with beautiful windows (glass and traditional shutters). Breakfast is communal and good, fruit toast yogurt drink tea/coffee. Each night at bedtime they brought up a pot of warm almond milk and cookies, a huge favorite with my son. One night the owner invited all the guests to a night of traditional Chinese music played beautifully on a stringed instrument by a local musician. He served some snacks associated with the moon festival including a delicious coconut/pandan leaf treat he hand made. We can’t wait to go back to Betel Nut!

Felt like home
A wonderful 7 night stay in Penang. Betal Nut Lodge is a converted historic shophouse in a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The super friendly owner/manager keeps things in perfect order. You will love your visit, if you can get one of the sought after reservations. We would return in a heartbeat.

What an adorable place to stay!
Excellent, of all the places I have ever stayed this is one of my favourites! Lovely room and great location. The owner is lovely and super helpful. We were also brought hot almond milk tea and homemade coconut cakes in the evening :)

Perfect stay!
What an awesome stay! I loved everything about Betel Nut Lodge. It was the most personal and individual service I have had in all my travels. I stayed in four other Hotels/Guesthouses in Penang before and Betel Nut Lodge stands out of all of them. I had a single room for a week, which was very clean and very comfortable. Though the window was to the inside of the house, I had enough light and air and never felt closed in. The staff of the hotel is amongst the most attentive I have ever seen. They bring you afternoon tea or a hot drink before bedtime and they prepare your breakfast fresh and up to your personal needs. I felt pampered all week long. I loved the location which was just minutes from the old historic district and Komtar Building with it's shopping mall and central bus station is literally just across the next big street. So, everything can be done by walking. It's a "shoes off" guesthouse, which I loved because it makes me feel more at home and also shows that the owners and the staff really want to make sure that their place is kept up well. Definitely my choice for my next Penang visit!!
