Set back from the shophouses along Jalan Hutton, almost hidden from view behind an ancient tree, Hutton Lodge occupies a lovely old free-standing Indo-Malay bungalow dating from the late 19th century.

After a chequered history, the double-storey building was almost destroyed by fire in 2003, but the bones survived to continue its legacy. However don’t expect a fancy hipster reno at this old-school guesthouse, part of the charm of Hutton Lodge is its lack of pretension, in fact it feels a tad dated, but nevertheless, the light-filled common areas and bright airy guest rooms are appealing, welcoming and homely.

Modest clean rooms range from dorms to family size with options for common or private amenities. The rooms are air-conditioned or you could open the window for some fresh air and flick on the ceiling fan—if you’re worried about security ground-floor rooms have bars on the windows.

Whilst adequately sized, the larger the room the more beds they stuff in, at least bright white walls and large wooden-shuttered windows that open to the garden deliver a feeling of space. Comfortable beds and generally well maintained interiors compensate for the mismatched outmoded 80s chainstore furniture and old carpets.

Basic tiled bathrooms in both the ensuite and shared facilities are clean and provide hot-water showers, but note that the share bathrooms are mixed gender. The sunshine-flooded lobby lounge with its rattan furniture and large potted plants is a delightful breezy spot to relax after exploring Penang or if you prefer, pull up a chair and enjoy the garden.

A basic breakfast of tea and toast is included, but we’d skip that and hit the nearby streets for some decent local grub and if you don’t know where to go, friendly staff are full of suggestions.

Despite some flaws, this is a good value comfortable and friendly option within walking distance of many of Penang’s sights. If unpretentious and old-school are your M.O., but the purse strings are tight, 75 Travellers Lodge in Lebuh Muntri may fit the bill.
