E T Budget Guesthouse,Penang,Batu Ferringhi,Malaysia
E T Budget Guesthouse,Batu Ferringhi,was right opposite the wonderful white sand beach.It couldn't be a better location.
The family run guesthouse was wonderful.They never interferr in what your doing,but are on hand if you need helpful advice.A beautiful,warm family.I just loved staying there.I felt completely safe at all times,which is important to me as i am a solo backpacker.
The rooms are all up stairs,with shared hot water showers.They are large with queen bed,very comfortable and towel.The only thing missing in my room was hooks to hangs things on and also no furniture,but this is only my room,the others could be different.
There's a huge vehranda out the front,which looks over the ocean and great for drying your beach towel and clothes.
Lots of places on the beach to eat but you won't find a cold beer as they are all Muslim.The ones that have beer are very expensive.Your much better to buy your own at a shop on the main street just around the corner called Frandies (i think that's the name or close to it).Soon,the owner lets you use his fridge,which is great for beer,fruit,yogurt,cold water etc.
its not far to the bus stop,to take you to Georgetown.2.70rm cheap.And lots of places along the main road to eat.My absulute favourite was Power-Up restaurant.Great fresh seafood dishes,very cheap and fresh fruit,shakes and smooties.Beer is cheaper here also.
I will return as i had the best week at E.T Guesthouse.Thank you so much Soon and family for for very comfortable stay.You are the nicest family and so helpful.
