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

The clove room was lovely- big, spacious, 4 poster bed, lovely bathroom with a huge bath. Very good for families but also very romantic for... More

I can not urge you more highly to travel to Penang, simply to stay at Clove Hall. It is so beautiful - the garden, the rooms, the furniture, the pool - a fantastic location in an intriguing city. Stepping off the 'super hotel chain route' is for those of us who want to 'touch and experience' something rare - an... More

The boutique guesthouse is run by Jim and Jo, both very sweet and caring people. It’s a great historic place, beautifully restored en well decorated. Because the house has only a few apartments, the owners have all the time for you. In addition to Jim and Jo, the rest of the staff also is very attentive, welcoming and engaging. Everyone... More

Clove Hall has been lovingly restored and could be an attraction in itself. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we looked forward to the delicious breakfast every morning. We travelled with our 10 month old, and the staff were very accommodating with our requests. Our little family had a lovely 4 night stay there, and would most definitely... More
