Superb service and location”

The Campbell house is a beautiful heritage property located in the heart of Georgetown Penang. You can explore everything on foot. The service is superb- from Nadya, the owner, welcoming you and outlining area discovery possibilities to the rest of the staff brightening your day with smiles and readiness to support. One gem that stood out is Kumar, meaning the reception desk. He has passion for his work and enthusiasm for Penang. Back to the property: the rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable beds. The property has its own mini library and a roof terrace where you can relax with a drink or order food or just be. Breakfast is served at Il Bacaro, an Italian restaurant. Great coffee and food. Dinner is delicious as well if you want some Western food to change up the menue. All in all, we were very happy and can wholeheartedly recommend the Campbell House

One of THE best hotels we've ever stayed”

Possibly one of THE best hotels we've ever stayed. . Each room has it's unique nyonya design, we were lucky to have "loft" which suggested by it's name was spacious with two floors. Because it's a family run business with fewer but more thoughtful rooms to look after, the cleanness and tidiness of the room was spotless. . The staff were not only professional but also hospitable, they went out of their ways to made sure we'd cover most of the "things to do and eat" in Penang. Not to mention the Campbell house's everyday complimentary homemade desert which will be delivered to our doorstep. . It truly made our stay in Penang so memorable and heartwarming. Thank you for the unforgettable experience.

Just perfect!”

I cannot rate Campbell House or the management & staff highly enough! It's an absolute gem tucked into the hustle & bustle of Georgetown. The hotel is a beautifully styled boutique building that looks & feels old world & authentic. The location is perfect 👌 Check in was easy & included a welcome drink and an extensive overview of all the things to do while in Georgetown. We got the full run down on the best places to visit while staying in Penang. When we were shown to our rooms we also got a quick tour of the hotel which included the library, reading area and the beautiful terrace area on the top floor. Perfect places to chill after busy days strolling around Georgetown. When booking, I had mentioned that we would be celebrating our anniversary while we stayed with them & on entertaining our room we were treated to towel swans on our bed which was very nice. :) The room itself was perfect. Old worldly yet with all the modern conveniences needed to ensure a pleasant stay. The pictures don't do it justice I'm afraid!!! Mini fridge, espresso machine, hair dryer : all the mod cons... The hotel has an Italian restaurant on the ground floor & serves breakfast, however we didn't get to try either on this visit, as we were trying all the local foods. Next time !! The hotel has a no shoes policy upstairs, which reduces noise & dirt. Great idea ! Everyone just leaves them in a small shoe rack on the stairs. There was a DVD player in the room & stacks of DVDs in the library to borrow - perfect if you fancy a wind down to a busy day ! I'm sure I'm forgetting loads, but can't recommend Campbell House enough!

The best place to stay! ”

Absolutely loved our experience in this hotel: a unique atmosphere of a heritage building, extremely friendly staff, cleanness and comfort of the rooms, location - everything was spot on! We didn’t have breakfast included, but still got freshly baked delicious cake every morning as a surprise with a very refreshing cold tea!

Stay here!”

A gem of a property in a very convenient location. Nardya and Roberto added a very welcome personal touch to one’s stay. Beautifully decorated, well appointed and very comfortable room. Kumar, Mr Lim, Ms Hoon and the rest of the staff all helped made our stay a most enjoyable one. They all provided clear and very useful information of the sites and restaurants to try. Breakfast was very good. Even our packed breakfast (because we had to check out early) was very yummy. Wish we had more time there to be able to try their house restaurant. I guess that is for next trip. I think the property is just not suitable for the mobility impaired because it doesn’t have an elevator. Other than that, it’s really a choice for a stay in Penang
