We were really keen to stay in a heritage building during our visit to George Town but couldn't stretch to E & O prices so decided to book Clove Hall on the strength of the reviews on here. Overall we had a very pleasant stay in the Cardamon suite which is upstairs in the main house. The room was simply... More

The guest lodge is located in quite a residential area a little bit distant from the old town. We had the guest rooms in the back - which were nice, but I would have preferred to stay in the main house. The pool is quiet and when we stayed, hardly anyone used the pool so it really did feel like... More

An amazing Malayan house in the centre of Penang. Large beautifully furnished rooms or should I say suite, as our room had a sofa and desk. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely gardens with a very welcome pool. Afternoon tea and cakes are served, a wonderful way to finish a day in Penang. Many restaurants are within walking distance and... More

The manager MR. Jim and also Miss Lee are really hospitable. They are passion to serve us. We feel relax and just like home. The environment is extremely clean. The design hook up my feeling to old antique times of Penang. It is worth and it was a really amazing stay in Clove Hall.

From all e-mails answered promptly, to the transfer to and from the airport Clove Hall lived up to our expectations from before our holiday started to the point that we reluctantly waved goodbye. We arrived exhausted after 24 hours of travelling from the UK, but within a few minutes of entering this amazing guest house and upon seeing our (fantastic)... More

We enjoyed our stay at Clove Hall but I definitely felt it was over priced for what it was. If you are planning to visit Georgetown and sit around at the hotel most of the day to enjoy the peaceful gardens, pool and afternoon tea then this would perhaps suit you. If however you want to explore the area and... More

Stayed at this beautiful colonial property over chinese new year. The place was tastefully restored. It felt like a home more than anything else. What set this experience apart was the great hospitality bestowed upon me and my partner. I am sure every guests felt the same way. Raj was great. Ever so helpful and attentive but never intrusive.

This is a real gem. Lee was holding the fort whilst owners away and she couldn't have done a better job. All the staff were extremely attentive but never got in your way. Food incl drinks and afternoon tea all excellent and freshly prepared whenever you wanted it. Room was charming. A real colonial feel to the whole place but... More

This was a delight for two nights and we experienced wonderful hospitality. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. They worked as a great team under the leadership of Lee who was holding the fort while the owners were away. Sorry we couldn't meet them but perhaps next time. Echo all the other reviews have to...

Our stay at Clove Hall for 8 nights was simply wonderful. The house itself has been loving restored and the staff worked extremely hard to look after us. Clove Hall only has 6 rooms so the place is never crowded. Highlights would be Jim's laid back charm and sense of humour - he also appears to know everything and everyone... More
