Fabulous time with perfect hosts,Jo and Jim who offer recommendations as needed. Beautiful guest house with a homely feel. Attentive staff with individual skills, always cheerful and willing to please. Delicious breakfasts and tea. It was a perfect place to return to after a hot walk around Georgtown and enter a cool airey house and access the gorgeous swimming pool.We... More

The house is picture perfect, painted white with shutters in a lovely old colonial style. It is situated a little way out of Georgetown, but taxis are easily available and buses run regularly past the end of the street into the centre of town as well as farther afield. The staff are excellent, friendly, accommodating and it feels more like... More

Me and my family spent the weekend at the beautiful Clove Hall. A beautiful colonial guest house. The staff, and owners, were fantastic and very helpful. The rooms were great, and so was the service. An beautiful oasis in the middle of the town. Worth every RM spent!

My partner and I spent a wonderful week at Clove Hall, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We booked ourselves the Cinnamon Suite, which used to be the old mansion's master suite. It was exceedingly spacious, nicely furnished with period pieces (especially loved the old-school bureau complete with a fold-up writing desk). As the mansion used to be the heart... More

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
