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,...

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...

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.

My husband, teenage daughter and I stayed at Clove Hall for three nights. The place is absolutely enchanting. It is so clean and it is obvious a lot of work has been put in making this place special. The hospitality was warm and attentive. The bungalow where we stayed (Star Anise) was gorgeous and well appointed. Breakfasts were great and...

Location wise Clove Hall is not within any walking distance to eateries or attractions. This place is meant for a staycation to disconnect and unwind, to relax at the pool, relax at the large living area or relax in your own room. Staffs are friendly, hospitable and knows when to interact, and when to let you be. Jim and Jo...
