    I think better processes and an investment in a CRM related to the hotel industry would benefit the hotel. They were not geared up for an early morning departure etc. Kudos to Kumar who was a gem and extremely helpful and kind.

    Thank you for the best hotel stay ever! We enjoyed every minute of our time in Campbell house. It was my 30th birthday treat and we were not disappointed. They went to special trouble to organise flowers for my family to give me when we arrived. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The rooms are luxurious and beautifully restored.... More

    Comfortable spot to stay and to explore Georgetown. Very clean and comfortable although no lift. Shouldn't be a problem if you're able-bodied. They add a very personal touch with reception guiding you through georgetown if its your first time there and leaving notes on what to do each day. On a quiet enough street so you can sleep well at... More

    I have recently returned to Campbell House after an amazing first experience. I'm pleased to say it did not disappoint-if anything it goes from strength to strength. It gives a personal and boutique experience in the hustle and bustle of the city. Beautiful, immaculately clean and unique rooms. Impeccable service. Lovely, friendly atmosphere set by the wonderful owners Roberto and... More
