            From the moment we arrived we were thrilled with the excellent service. So much care taken to make sure that we were fully informed to enable us to have an enjoyable stay in Penang/George Town. The accommodation is spotless and the staff amazing. This would have to be one of the most enjoyable stays that we have had and in fact we extended our stay buy a further two nights because we were so happy. Congratulations Cheah for creating a beautiful establishment.

            We had a very warm welcome by the owner of the lodge and he gave us a map with recommendations for places to eat. The room is quite cosy, but the bed was good. Shower lacks waterpressure, but overall fine. The lodge is located in a pretty quiet street and we had no problems sleeping at night. The staff is very helpful and laundy service was done perfectly.

            A beautiful, small, restored building having only 6 rooms currently, with good beds and a wet room. The location is very good, it's quiet and feels like being in your own home. The staff are absolutely 1st class and they put their heart and soul into their lodge and making your stay as good as possible. We'll definately stay here if we return and recommend it without reservation.

            The hotel is maintained to a very high standard and the feather pillows and duvet were a real treat after 3 months of travelling. All the staff are extremely helpful and give advice about where to eat. It is convenient to local attractions whilst a little bit off the main drag. There is a communal space but no one seemed to use it so it's not a very sociable hotel which is a shame. I'd definitely recommend

            Betel Nut Lodge at Lebuh Melayu”
            We spent two nights at Betel Nut Lodge over the weekend. The frienliness of the owner, helpfulness of the staff, the little things they provide like the stalks of fresh flowers in the room, the delicious afternoon cookies & Chinese tea, almond milk at night & the little takeaway they gave us when we checked out are what make this place so special! The location is just right for visiting the heritage area. But if you are driving, parking could be a bit of a problem, but this is to be expected for this part of the city. The Lodge & rooms are clean & nice. The reception is really warm though without air conditioning, maybe some fans would be good. Overall, we have enjoyed our stay here, a job well done by the owner on converting the place to how it is now from such an old building!

            We are betel-nuts for the Betel Nut!”
            The Betel Nut Lodge was by far the most exceptional hotel that we have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived, the hosts went out of their way to make us feel like part of the family. We joined in with Chinese New Year celebrations and were treated to bedtime snacks every evening. We were astounded by the standard of hospitality offered at the Betel Nut. The staff were just fantastic. The location was perfect, right in the thick of it in the UNESCO world heritage site of Georgetown. The rooms were spotless and had fresh flowers every day. The bathroom was newly fitted with a fabulous shower and the bed was very comfortable. We extended our stay by 2 extra nights as we were so in love with the hotel. We chose the king size room and it was palacial! There was ample space for storage and the air conditioning was great. The décor fitted the building's 19th century status-traditional yet tasteful. We hope to come back soon!

            We stayed here for one night only, wish could stayed two more nights but the room were fully booked. The mansion itself is magnificent, with it's design follow by Chinese Feng Shui, you really feel calm inside the mansion. The breakfast in the mansion lobby was a great experience to feel the mansion. The manager guy who was in charge when we were there wasn't that friendly, but the rest was all good. Overall, a place worth to stay.

            We really enjoyed our stay very much! So convenient and accessible to everywhere. Rooms are awesome, everything is new and clean. I am fascinated on the washroom door knob. I spent some time at the quiet corner to find this place amazing. While departing, there was a sudden heavy downpour and Mr. Cheah (the owner) sent us to our car and got himself wet under the rain. I felt very bad and we were touched by his kind gesture. Thinking back, Mr. Cheah is extremely warming and have extended his guests to an extra mile. Even our driver complimented about him. We will be back :)

            This is our first experience staying in a world heritage building! We really appreciate the unique old building and elegant decoration of the hotel. The owner, Mr. Cheah, and his staffs has done a very good job to keep the old building well managed and clean. Mr. Cheah is really nice and friendly and made it a point to make us feel welcomed during our stay there. He will also ask us where are we heading to during the breakfast time to share some advice with us. Really appreciate his kind hospitality! He was knowledgeable about almost everything in Penang, from history, cultural to food. We had tried a lot of delicious food such as char kway teow, lobak, duck noodle and seafood due to his recommendations. The most excited point for me is the private rooftop garden, really want to thank Mr. Cheah for inviting us to visit the rooftop garden. I picked some Thai basil and Italian basil leaves, which I have searching for a very long time, and they are now growing healthily and happily in my garden! Lastly, thank you for making our stay a memorable and wonderful experience, will definitely choose Betel Nut Lodge again when we visit Penang in the future.
