Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Staying in Batu Feringghi is expensive and often means spending a lot more money than in Georgetown, or making do with a rundown room in a very simple guesthouse. Budget places are scarce, so if you're keen on staying here but don't have much to spend, try to book ahead. Most budget travellers don't bother and instead opt to stay in Georgetown.
