About Clove Hall


Clove Hall is a private Edwardian Anglo-Malay bungalow located in a quiet residential street. It provides an intimate escape from the bustle of busy Georgetown but is well within walking distance to it. Built on the site of a former colonial plantation, the house has been sensitively restored and converted and opened its doors to guests in 2009. It features six individual suites with wooden floors, four-poster beds, mosquito nets, and ceiling fans. The main hall is furnished with colonial and Peranakan-inspired décor and has black and white floor tiles, inlaid glass windows, and etched glass light shades. The grounds have been transformed into a sultry tropical garden, verdant with spice trees and flowering plants with a green-tiled pool nestled into it. The hotel's hosts are on hand to personally ensure guests comfort during their stay. Clove Hall, evocative of earlier times, provides a unique private experience and a perfect base from which to discover.

Tranquil, restful
Far from the madding crowds (if so desired). Service was wonderful, the premises were very well kept up, the pool esp. provided a wonderful respite from the heat. The quiet and privacy does come at a price though.

Great heritage property, wonderful host
The property, service, location
Had a blast staying here with my 2 toy poodles. Plenty of space for them to roam. Awesome property, well maintained and full of history. Great service from our hosts. Highly recommended

Quaint gem on the outskirts of Georgetown
Spacious room, great service, quiet neighbourhood
We absolutely loved our stay in Clove Hall. The rooms were incredibly spacious, with lovely furniture and comfortable bed. We also liked that we had a writing desk and a little balcony. It is one of the few restored colonial homes with a pool, which was great for a dip in Penang's heat. Location wise it is on the outskirts of Georgetown, but still walkable to some areas (the walk to Little India takes about 20 mins though). The service was incredible! The staff were all very friendly and helpful, as were the owners, Jo and Jim. And not to forget George the poodle! I would recommend Clove Hall to those wanting some peace and quiet in Penang or as a couples' retreat (it's quite romantic). It definitely is not a place for backpackers or those wishing to stay out all night enjoying the nightlife of Penang.

Penang perfection at clover Hall
Calm environment, wonderful rooms, lovely staff
Our stay at Clover Hall was perfect in every way and I fully recommend a stay here. The property is a beautifully restored original building in immaculate condition. It is like an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Penang and you can truly relax.

Anniversary Holiday
The staff were very attentive but not looking over your shoulder, location was private and was relaxing
From the moment we arrived the owners and staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had good advise on local eating and places to visit. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We would be very happy to return for another holiday there.

We stayed here on our honeymoon and we were very pleased with the accommodation and staff. Highly recommend a stay here if you are in Penang.
