Clove Hall is a small hotel, with large beautifully decorated rooms. The owners Jo and Jim, with their three staff have created a wonderful home from home atmosphere just a 15 min walk from the centre of Penang. Nothing is too much trouble and it's more like staying with friends than being in a hotel. Situated in a quiet side... More

We had the most amazing 48-hour stay at this property. Booked in a jiffy (without too much research), we just got damn lucky. Our kids loved the old world charm the house has. The owners Jo and Jim make you feel so warm. Located in a quiet residential area, the house is a perfect choice for those looking for privacy,... More

We stayed in Clove Hall, Georgetown for 2 nights and wish we could have extended our stay. It's a gorgeous house tucked away in a quiet street, yet close enough to walk back from the heritage site area. Jim is the friendliest and most welcoming host and himself a source of historical knowledge. The service is exemplary and the staff... More

Our room (Clove) was beautiful and perfect for a family - slightly set off from the main house so as not to disturb others but amazingly sumptuous and comfortable. We had our two small kids with us and were so well looked after. The pool area is stunning and breakfast delicious. We also liked that it is slightly outside the... More

What an amazing place so clean friendly and the owners Jim & Jo couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are spacious and have all the necessities whether you are there for a business trip or holiday. It was a blessing that they also had a beautiful swimming pool to cool off in after a hot day or just to... More

This is a wonderful place to relax and chill out after exploring Georgetown. The 6 rooms are large, light, well appointed and very comfortable. The owners/managers are wonderfully hospitable with invaluable local knowledge for exploring Georgetown. And Clove Hall itself is a beautifully maintained and decorated large colonial-era house set in a wonderful, peaceful garden. My wife and I thoroughly... More

We spent two nights in George Town, Penang. We found the Clove Hall thanks to some very good feedbacks we read on the net. In fact the place is very nice and peaceful, the rooms very comfortable, the breakfast of a very good quality and the personnel, well istructed by the British landlady, ‎always available and kindest. The nice small... More

Visited dozens of times, ever since Clove Hall opened, and we return at least twice a year, and always stay here - we would not contemplate staying anywhere else, as we have grown too fond of the place! Not only is the house itself totally magnificent, but it is also SO Penang - why would we stay in a modern... More
