Delightful old home, now an intimate B&B with large comfortable rooms plus a restful garden in which there is a decent sized swimming pool. Very well run by owners Jo and Jim, with willing and friendly staff. Close enough (20 min walk) to the world heritage part of Georgetown and with many nearby restaurants. Also a short walk from the...

We spent an incredibly peaceful few days here during our honeymoon, hosted by Jo, Jim and their fantastic team. The setting is fantastic - elegantly-renovated old buildings with high ceilings and cool halls, surrounded by a small garden and a pool just large enough to swim in. Although we'd initially thought the hotel would be mainly a jumping-off point for...

My wife and I stayed at Clove Hall in Feb 2017 and I must say that it was a very pleasant guest house. The poster bed was comfortable for both of us to get a good nights rest after a day of eating and walking around Georgetown. Breakfast was great too and the pool was big enough if you needed...

On a recent work / leisure trip to Singapore we decided to take a short side trip to Penang (something we inexplicably didn't do in the 6 odd years we lived in SG) to have a look around. We researched places to stay on a few websites and found The Clove Hall (everything looked good with positive reviews) and booked...

We are extensive travellers, and like to stay in boutique hotels, particularly in Asia. We highly recommend Clove Hall, for more than one reason: - Amazing architecture, restore in an authentic way (my wife and I are both engineers so appreciate such things) - Very quiet, yet a 10 min taxi drive to the center of town - Very friendly...

Very pleasant stay at Clove Hall. Lots of thought and consideration has clearly gone in to the property - which sits handsomely in between the varied buildings (new and old) in this part of Georgetown. Professional welcome from the host, Jo, who provided a relaxed and informal feel to the place. Easy to cab to and from the town centre,...

We stayed at Clove hall in our recent visit to Penang and it made our holiday there truly enjoyable and memorable. Clove hall exudes a cosy, colonial charm which made us feel at home right from the start. We were in awe of the little details around every corner of the house. After a long day of travelling, we had...

Not only is Clove Hall a beautiful property it is run by a charming couple Jo and Jim. This is a return visit and as always the warm welcome the efficient friendly staff had us relaxing immediately. Clean, comfortable and lovely pool and garden full of interesting bits and pieces you feel you are guests in a private home. Do...

We were greeted with a dozen roses and a bottle of red wine to congratulate us on our honeymoon! Owners Jim and Jo and all the staff were welcoming and full of helpful advice. The guesthouse is truly beautiful, with a gorgeous and clean pool to bathe in when the humidity gets too much. Location is great - quiet, easy...

Just back from another stay at Clove Hall which was charming and comfortable as ever. Great hospitality from Jim (Jo was away) as well as the three long-standing and loyal members of their team. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Georgetown.
