About Muntri Grove

Tucked away beside the World Heritage Site of downtown George Town, Muntri Grove is a boutique hotel decorated with original artworks. It occupies a row of lovingly restored two-storey terraced workers cottages dating back to the 1800s.

The spacious and well-appointed rooms with private bathrooms and air conditioning are light and airy. Decorated with splashes of colour, they feature teak furniture and lounges plus high ceilings with exposed timber beams, four-poster beds, flat-screen TVs and wireless speakers.

Standout facilities include an outdoor rooftop swimming pool and serene gardens. Further conveniences include a 24-hour reception, sunloungers and free Wi-Fi throughout. Pets are allowed on request.

Breakfast is served on the large first floor veranda. Two minutes’ walk away, guests will find the Mews Café, which is among this hotel’s sister eateries. It serves Malaysian cuisine plus light bites in stylish surroundings.

The fascinating Clan Jetties of Penang are about 15 minutes’ walk from Muntri Grove. Historic Fort Cornwallis is a mile away.

Positive Reviews

A heritage hotel with classy interiors

Travellers expressed positive sentiments about the classy interiors at this boutique hotel. They liked the spaciousness of the rooms and spoke highly of the sleek minimalist décor that gave the rooms a light and airy feel interspersed with dashes of colour. The rooms were also described as being clean and comfy. The cosy beds and effective air conditioning units were also singled out for praise.

Helpful and professional staff

The courteous employees were reportedly happy to help guests with their bags on arrival. Indeed, reviewers said they dealt with pleasant, knowledgeable and professional employees throughout their stays. Moreover, those travelling with their four-legged friends welcomed the pet-friendly policy.

Central location was handy

The World Heritage Site core of downtown George Town was right on the doorstep at this hotel, which was something guests really loved about its location. This made it simple for visitors to explore the many sites and landmarks nearby on foot. It also appealed to guests that the hotel was close to dining, shopping and nightlife options, including street food eateries that stayed open late. The proximity of bus stops was another bonus.

Negative Reviews

Minor maintenance grumbles

Dim lighting, tired-looking mosquito nets and a Wi-Fi signal that was prone to dropping out were among the room maintenance concerns guests raised in their reviews.

Noise issues

Light sleepers noted that noise from nearby nightlife venues was sometimes audible in their rooms. Moreover, the sound of pupils arriving at a nearby school disturbed some guests from their slumber on weekday mornings.

Breakfast lacked variety

Reviewers sometimes criticised the lack of variety on the breakfast menu here. It was a setback that was most keenly felt by those on longer stays.
