Clove Hall

Penang, Malaysia


Children are welcome in the Garden Suites only (Star Anise. Clove and Ginger), so that tired little ones don't detract from the romantic atmosphere of the Hall Suites (Saffron, Cinnamon and Cardamom). This also provides families with more space and privacy.

Cots are available free of charge and most rooms have a daybed too. There are no separate rooms to keep them out of your sight. Kids will enjoy splashing in the pool and exploring the grounds, but this isn't the ideal environment for them with antiques everywhere and a tranquil ambiance.

Under 6s stay for free, but will be charged for breakfast (see rates).

  • Family friendly accommodation: Families are welcome in the 3 Garden Suites in the grounds. Clove is the largest and has a huge bathtub the whole family could enjoy, Ginger has its own little garden and is the most private.
    Save to favouritesPrintMailClove HallA gentlemenís club in the 50s, this colonial mansion and outbuildings in a residential part of Georgetown were left to the termites for decades before being reclaimed and restored to, if anything more, than their former glory. Impeccable workmanship and care went into the conversion, and Jo and Jim Lim are now the proud owners of its 6 [r:MY007:suites], cream walls, chocolate-brown rafters, great stone pillars, antique tile floors, open archways and lazily spinning ceiling fans. A tranquil swimming pool, fringed with ginger bushes, offers refreshment after a hard dayís sightseeing. Birds twitter in the tropical foliage as you rest on your flagstone veranda or recline on your silk-covered Chinese daybed before striking out again into UNESCO-listed Penang, full of heritage and history and one of Asiaís foodie heavens. Furniture comes from India, China and Sri Lanka, including some colonial antiques, all assembled in the best possible taste. And if the operation is just a fraction short of the extra attention to your creature comforts that makes a truly great hotel, the abundance of things to do outside will mean you hardly notice it.
