Located along the historic Macalister Road, Macalister Mansion boutique hotel, designed by Singapore-based Ministry of Designpromises a quirky and sophisticated new lifestyle destination in George Town, Malaysia, where guest are welcome to relish hospitality of an actual home – good food, fine drink, engaging conversation, soothing music, a good night’s sleep or simply lounging by the pool. The Macalister Mansion is associated with the good things in life and having a great time at a scale that is both intimate and personal.

Housed in a beautiful 100 year old historic mansion that has been conserved and adapted, each space within its food & beverage outlets together with the hotel is branded as distinct rooms found in a mansion: Dining Room, The Den, Living Room, Bar (Bagan), The Lawn and 8 Rooms.

The name Macalister Mansion honours Sir Norman Macalister, one of the first British Governors of Penang (then known as Prince of Wales Island) from 1808 – 1810. Sir Norman Macalister also gave his name to Macalister Road, where the boutique hotel is situated.
