Stayed for a few nights in ginger, a large room with a large bathroom and private outdoor sitting area. Was the nicest place I stayed in Malaysia! The room is perfect and has everything you need, big comfy bed, fresh water, aircon, tv, nice hot shower and big sink. The staff are really lovely and attentive, making sure you have... More

We stayed in the Saffron suite at Clove Hall for 4 nights and found it to be better than expected; and that's saying a lot from someone who isn't easily impressed! We were warmly welcomed from the moment we were greeted out the front of the property where our taxi dropped us off, to a fond farewell when it was... More

My my, I'd probably run out of superlatives to describe our recent stay at this lovely guesthouse. Jo and Jim are such a friendly and welcoming couple, especially Jim who peppers his tips and advice with insights into stories about Penang. We stayed at Clove Suite which was magnificent. Clearly they have had much thought into how they'd restore this... More

We stayed for five nights as a family of five (with 3 children aged 12,14 and 16) and had the Clove (the parents) and Star Anise (the children) suites. These were separate annexes to the main house with their own entrances, accessed through a small grove of clove trees. This is as good as you can get, I think. Right... More

We visited our friends who stayed at Clove Hill in Nov'14 and fallen in love with the estate. It's a beautiful, well maintained, gorgeously decorated, piecefull place aside from busy George Town streets. Indeed, Clove Hill is located slightly aside from the centre, however it's just 10 min and 15 myr (Nov'14 taxi charge) away, still very convenient. It's a... More

Beautiful setting, warm and professional hospitality, small and intimate yet with everything you need, attentive staff, very relaxed with a Georgetown 'way of life' approach. In my view, a good definition of luxury. Excellent choice of breakfast, always delivered in a nice little intimate corner of the property, only for you. Lovely and relaxed pool. Location is a walk to... More

We arrived late to be greeted very warmly, offered tea and immediately was immersed into the special environment of Clove Hall. The house has been sympathicaly restored to its former glory and is so beautiful. Our antique filled suite had been carefully prepared for all our needs,even the desk had "sticky tape" for an emergency. Well stocked bathroom, lovely swimming... More

Jo and the team made me and my little girl (3 years old) very welcome and comfortable during our three night stay. I would have stayed much longer if I had the time - Clove Hall is highly recommended.

We extended our stay at Clove Hall because it was the perfect blend of elegance,style, relaxation and friendly personal service. We hope to return again one day. Strongly recommend this as a charming oasis close to the exciting sights of Georgetown.

The house is beautifully restored and immediately relaxing. The staff (and owners) make you feel like you are at home and cant do enough. The breakfasts are amazing with lots of choice as are the afternoon teas and cakes. Add all of this together and it makes for an amazingly good value experience that will have you planning your next... More
