The house comes fully equipped with a guest kitchen. If you have children in your group they will enjoy the playgrounds, and there is a paved area behind the house for ball games. There are three larger bedrooms, 2 with twin beds and adult bunk beds, one with queen bed and adult bunk beds. There is also 1 double bedroom and 1 single room. Folding beds and cribs can be added according to your requirements, taking the accommodation up to a maximum of 17 adults/children.

The Dining area in Bethany House seats a maximum 14 guests (+ babies). If your group is larger than this we serve a buffet style meal. Breakfast is laid out between 7:30 – 10:00am (every day). Dinner is served at 6pm Monday-Saturday. Our western-style freshly cooked meal has a wonderful reputation! If arranged in advance, (and at an additional cost) we can provide Lunch for your group, or prepare a packed lunch. Our catering team have Sundays off, so we cannot provide Lunch or Dinner on Sundays. This is an opportunity to try the many excellent eating places on Cheung Chau! We also have a guest snack shop with chocolate/cookies/ice cream/soft drinks/ chips and pot noodles.
If it is possible for you, please plan to check in at Bethany Reception between 2pm to 5pm Monday to Saturday. On Sundays our Reception is closed. If your travel plans mean you will arrive at another time, please let us know when you book so we can arrange help up to Bethany if needed. To help our staff service the rooms, we ask guests to vacate their rooms by 11:30 am on the day of departure, although you are welcome to stay around and make use of the shared facilities until you are ready to leave. If your group would prefer a later check out, or earlier arrival, please contact us to see if this option is available for your dates. We will be happy to work with you in meeting your group's needs, but we also need to ensure other Bethany guests’ needs are considered.
