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

The colonial house is stunning with beautiful interiors and the staff simply amazing and so very helpful and kind. The owners were also very helpful and friendly and we adored George, the gorgeous pooch about the house! A... More

Clove Hall is a beautifully renovated 2 storey house on the fringes of colonial George Town. With 6 suites it is a delightfully small jewel of a place. Our suite (Saffron) was large, comfortable and well-equipped. Bathrooms are minimalist; ours featured a wonderful rain shower with oodles of hot water and good amenities. Mosquito-netted bed, day bed and balcony completed... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved everything about this place! The rooms, the building, the grounds, the staff and the service. It was wonderful to have a pool to cool down in after walking humid Penang during the day. The home cooked breakfast every morning on the grounds was a delight. We even had... More
