Campbell House is incredible. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, particularly Sharon the manager and the owners, Roberto and Nardya. It's been so tastefully decorated and refurbished by the owners that every room is like going into a museum. And the best thing, the owners are so passionate about it that every single little item has its own history,... More

I stayed here recently with a group of 6 friends. Each of our rooms were beautifully decorated, each with their own theme, and had everything we needed, with some old world charm as well. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. We instantly felt at home, we especially loved chilling out on the roof top terrace with some... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Campbell House - it has to be one of the nicest (if not the nicest) hotels I have stayed in. The staff go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable and will help you with tips for exploring George Town (and Malaysia as a whole). The hotel only has a few rooms, so... More

We felt like we were staying with friends. Nardya and Roberto are fabulous hosts who ensured that every moment of our stay was moulded to our needs. Kumar spent time with me planning my... More

You have just got to try this place. Right in the middle of George Town which is now a heritage listed area; this is the real Penang. The staff are wonderful and helpful; the free breakfast is extensive and delicious. We had the Sari room; beautifully restored, furnished and decorated. Comfortable bed and clean bathroom. There is an attached restaurant;... More

Everything was perfect. I mean EVERYTHING! From the staff/service to the room. I booked the Opium room. A Victorian bathtub is even is the bathroom. It's a kind of place that will never forget. The breakfast is awesome. The homemade jams are lovely.

We came here to escape the Thai cuisin once and we didn't regret. Sure it's more expensive than others but in comparison to other gourmet restaurants it is cheap. When you are inside the hectic life outside disappears and you get into a room which is perfectly atmosphered. The food was really delicious , we had the Spaghetti with pesto... More

Stepped out of the heat into an oasis of cool tranquility. Good coffee and juices.Good service. So impressed with the general feel we plan to stay here for a couple of nights when we visit Penang in 2015.

Nardya and Roberto have created an outstanding boutique hotel in Georgetown and my wife and I have nothing but praise for how we were treated during our stay. We stayed in the Calligraphy room for 5 nights and we both rated it as the best short holiday stay ever. The room was amazing, the staff were excellent, breakfasts were superb... More
