Lovely old Colonial hotel. We stayed in a comfortable room with beautiful furnishings. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfast and other little 'treats' left in bedroom fridge. Ideal location for exploring George Town.

We chose Campbell House because we wanted a small hotel in a central location for three days sightseeing in Georgetown. It turned out to be a perfect choice in every way. All the sites of interest are within a short walking distance, which was important given how hot it was. The bedroom and fittings were very good and exactly matched... More

A great boutique hotel in the heart of old George town, beautifully restored with wonderful staff. Nice tradition of taking off your shoes before going upstairs. Fairly large comfortable room, we stayed in the Sari room which had a little balcony. TV selection is poor but you do have a DVD player in the room and there are DVD's in... More

Hands down all-around great hotel - service, friendliness, cleanliness, quality of furnishings and amazing breakfast (more than enough quantity with great selection). I would recommend to anyone who goes to Penang.

Campbell House is a heritage hotel. We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon before lunchtime and the receptionist told us that our room was ready which was unexpected. There was no lift and our room was on the top floor (actually, I think the building only had 3 levels). The bellboy delivered our luggage with a rope and pulley... More

It is slightly more expensive of the hotels we chose, but it made up in terms of comfort and location. Convenience with lots of eateries round the corner. We love the breakfast there. It has also a good ambience. Every staff was welcoming and ready to help. We will stay again when we come back here.

I stayed one night here only with my family but wish we had stayed longer. The location was very close to a number of attractions and as the owner helpfully pointed out, we were able to reach a number of them within walking distance. The service was just spectacular and we loved the fact that there was complimentary lemon tea... More

We were expecting a typical Malaysia boutique hotel before we arrive to Campbell House. Upon arrival we were treated with warm reception by Rachel at front desk. That was really nice. The hotel has a very Peranakan feel and remund me of the good old days back in the kampung with gran but with modern and clean set up. We... More

I have been to the Campbell House twice and have loved every minute of my stays. Nadya and her staff are warm, welcoming and always happy to give a recommendation for food or entertainment. The house itself is gorgeous and the pillows are the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Love this place!
