Great job with the renovation

Comparing the pictures of how this place looked pre and post renovation, it's clear that plenty of effort has been put into achieving the current state. It's only possible to... read more

Clearly care and appreciation has gone into this Mansion but frankly, it's too crowded at tour times and your stepping g on guest house guests and restaurant patrons while touring a limited view of the house. The house is beautiful and really well restored. As mentioned previously it also double as a guest house, so may make an excellent place... More

This is an interesting historical site in Penang. The house belongs to a Chinese Businessman by the name of Cheong Fatt Tze who is one of the last Mandarin. This house has been fully restored and is a good example of early luxury living. The tour lady does a fantastic job of explaining the history of Cheong Fatt Tze and... More

One of my favorite places in George Town. A multi-faceted experience every time. Just sit in the courtyard and soak up the history and atmosphere. Love it.

An impressive mansion and an interesting tour guide but you don't get to see much of the mansion as a lot of it has been converted into a hotel and restaurant.

Comparing the pictures of how this place looked pre and post renovation, it's clear that plenty of effort has been put into achieving the current state. It's only possible to visit via guided tours (unless you're staying in the hotel) but these are actually quite interesting. Only part of the mansion complex is available for viewing by the public but... More

Beautiful site, a definite must see in Penang. Respect to all that renovated it back to current shape from nearly ruins. Compared to Peranakan Museum there is not that much to see here - most of the building was converted into hotel hence limited opportunity to explore how the whole house really looked like originally. Good but expected more

Just at the top of Georgetown's old town is the Blue Mansion or Cheong Fatt Tze mansion. It's a beautiful example of what people who really care about conservation can do with their passion. Great tour from the owner of the property. Would have been good to see some more of the mansion, but nevertheless it was an impressive property.
