Had such a lovely stay ”
The house is really beautiful, stylish and cosy. Rooms were clean and from the first moment I felt really welcomed. Great location . Close to the main streets of George Town but the street and the hotel itself is really quiet. Thank you for the lovely stay. Would definitely recommend to everyone 😊

Very nice stay”
You will feel at home! Location is very good, you can go by walking everywhere, even to the mall for some more commercial shopping. Safe at night even if the city looks already desertic at 8 pm. I was travelling alone and I had no problem going around in the evening by myself. Everybody in GT is very nice and welcoming. Terry, the host is especially friendly, he helped me to sort out my little tours with very nice suggestions and he always makes sure that all is ok. The bedrooms are essentials but welcoming. I suggest you bring an eye mask to sleep if you like to sleep in the dark, same thing for the earplugs; the location is outside the busy areas but still cats, and voices might be waking you up if you like to sleep late. My room especially was facing the street. Bathrooms are very clean and since are just a few bedrooms you don't cross many people.

Is hard to find a place like this that treats the guest like their family, makes me feel like home and the owners are very friendly and helpful, definitely would come back here for a longer stay next time. (not recommended if you are expecting for a hotel standard stay)

A magical space. Awesome on all levels. Close to everything yet in such a quiet spot. Terry, the host is a delight. Nothing is too much trouble. The heritage 'house' is exquisite. which a delicate mix of quirky and old. I could easily live there <3

Terry and his mom are the best hosts managing Carnarvon House. They were hospitable, friendly, quick to reply to queries, and treated guests like family members. I cannot recommend this place enough, and will definitely be back for a longer stay.

A home away from home”
My husband and I went to penang for a short trip as we were attending our friend’s wedding. I was a bit worried about the share bathroom but it turned out to be great! Spacious and very very clean. Not to forget the water pressure was great! The host was very lovely and we’d stay here again for a longer period next time.

Terry and his mom are excellent hosts. We loved staying in their beautiful heritage house. Room was comfortable and cool, breakfast was great, and the house is in a quiet area while still easily accessable to the sights. It is an old house and back in the day you used a chamber pot for your business. Luckily for us, the house was renovated and has a modern bathroom. It's shared for all guests with several toilets and showers. There's also a cold water dispenser which is a nice touch on hot Penang days.

The Building is very beautiful and stylish inside. Surrounding area a bit run down but it felt very safe at Carnarvon house. Terry the host, his mother and his assistant were all very helpful and it was nice trying a different breakfast every day.. would definitely stay here again if returning to Georgetown.

Beautiful designed and nice decorated house and rooms. Very good local breakfast. The location is central. You can easily reach the streetart places as well as the bus stop to get for example to the butterfly farm or the tropical fruit farm. We highly recommend to stay at the Carnavon House.

Good location in a nice house”
Really nice and helpful staff, in a beautiful house. Good location. The rooms are very basic, a bit pricey for what they offer - I had no windows, and it was common bathrooms at the end of the corridor - but they were comfy enough for a night or two. The UNEXCO area is apparently expensive everywhere. A nice place.

The best in town”
The thing I love most about this guest house must have been Terry himself and his mother. They were really helpful in showing us around and giving us options whenever we needed. Auntie is an excellent cook hence the amazing breakfast and with the laundry she made sure to roll our clothes neatly as it’s much easier to pack. The house is right next to the famous street art and various renowned destinations, just a few minute walk. You don’t have to worry about the shared bathrooms cause’ they’re squeaky clean, during my stay rarely did I pump into other guests. The only one thing that you might consider is the wooden floor which emphasizes footsteps. Overall, my experience was 👌.
