Best for everything!”

I highly recommend this place if you visit George Town, Penang. The location is excellent (I rarely used Grab). The shared facilities were always clean. Most importantly, the owners were super nice and kind! They allowed us to leave our luggages for a few hours on the day after we checked out as we re-visited the city prior to our night flight. This left one of the best impressions for this trip as they still treated us as guests even after checking out. We also advised for anything we asked for prior to, during our trip and even after! Highly recommended everyone to stay here!

Very Clean & Great Location”

The hotel or the guesthouse is one of the best stays we had, my wife and I traveled to Penang for the first time for 2 nights, and I booked in Carnarvon House based purely on location and online rating, and I was not disappointed at all, the room is very fresh and clean, the interior is nice, and although there are not much in-room amenities, the common area downstairs is nice and equipped with everything you might need. I very much recommend this place!

Beautiful and nice ambient in the inside, ready with kitchen and able to rest at dining room and living room (with TV) The bathrooms and toilets are public, so for some this might be a concern, but it's reasonably maintain and clean Overall, my stay in the weekends was relax and cozy Also, it's very near / walking distance to most of the attractions in George Town, you can grab a drink at night which is quite happening at Lebuh Carnavon During the day, you can visit the Dark Mansion, Upside Down Museum, etc. which are nearby. Nicole, the host is very friendly and helpful, she introduced us to Hin Bus Depot event which you can see and buy some local arts and accessories, it has live band and some mini games as well (might be different for each event) I will definitely visit Carnarvon House again!

A cosy, quaint guesthouse that feels just like home ”

Tremendously enjoyed my short stay at Carnavon house, wished it was longer. The rooms were neat and clean, and the lobby is was just beautiful. Great to sit around and just take in the great vibes. The host Nichole was really sweet! Recommending places to go and making my stay really comfortable. The guesthouse is also a short walk from many places of attractions, including many beautiful heritage museums. A perfect stay for anyone visiting Georgetown.
