This is a great place. Very good value for money. Location is awesome with lots of coffee shops, eateries and bars in the area. Nice street art in the small alleys, too. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I do recommend this place for short stays. I hope I can be back with my family one day.

I walked in on a wrong date (my own mistake, I booked 1 month ahead) while I was dazing with dread as it was a weekend, the hotel was quick to find us other available rooms and accommodated us without any hassle or extra charge. I booked through agoda (always impossible to reach when you need to, terrible after service,... More

We had made a booking at 23 Love Lane for two nights. The booking had been confirmed and our card security had been taken. On reaching here, we were advised that the hotel was full and we were put in an annexe which was 500 yards away. No service was offered in the annexe and there was no attendant available.... More

Great conversion of an old mansion into several unique suites oozing old-world charm but with all the mod-cons required to make the stay comfortable and memorable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not much was wanting except for a swimming pool (even a small one!) that would have made a nice refuge in the hot sticky afternoons. Breakfast included with the... More

We rented the separate Blue House which is around the corner from the 23 Lovelane hotel. That house was a tremendous place for friends and family with 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, several places to lounge/gather and great character. The location is good with lots of places in walking distance. Very thoroughly enjoyed it and I can't think of a negative.

Enjoyed a 4-night stay in the Garden Room of the Anglo Indian Bungalow. The bathroom was spacious and outdoor shower and bath were a nice feature. Spot-on location in Georgetown which was great for wandering around the Unesco Heritage zone. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. Breakfast and afternoon tea were included in room rate. The local tea spread changed daily... More

A restored historic hotel within a private compound within a gated wall makes the place special. Each room is individually styled and decorated. It has a cosy homely common lounge for guests to relax and enjoy complimentary tea, biscuits and fruits.

We got to this hotel by accident but never regretted. It’s very charming boutique-hotel with wonderful staff. Perfectly located in the heart of historic Georgetown. Each room is spacious and nicely decorated. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
