Charming and cozy - Nicely restored, clean, very comfortable, and well-appointed room. Thoughtful details (like providing a quick breakfast on our check out day as we were catching an early flight). Warm and helpful - Service was spot on. Front desk was helpful - right on arrival, they loaded us up with plenty of suggestions on where to go, what... More

Very friendly and extremely helpful staff who do everything to make you feel comfortable in this gorgeous mix of eastern architecture and western comfort. Very central location in chinatown with a pretty good breakfast although it was all western dishes. Would def stay again.

I loved everything about the hotel, from the relaxing terrace to the delicious breakfast. I would definitely stay here again, and I recommend it to anyone visiting Georgetown. We also bought a local photo they had on display.

The Campbell House is a marvelous place to stay for a romantic trip or with your family. The rooms are prepared and maintained with the utmost delicacy. The people at the front desk are full of kindness and will be happy to show you the places to go in Penang. We loved our breakfasts in this place as we enjoyed... More

This is an absolutely first rate establishment with many quirky features. Sharon at reception is unfailingly cheerful, helpful and a mine of information about things to do in Georgetown. Our room was on two levels and very spacious although perhaps a bit dark. Coffee, tea, water all in the room and a very comfortable bed. Add to this a first... More

We got off to a bad start here.After checking in and being shown to our room we had just finished unpacking ( we were staying for 3 nights) when we were told that we had been allocated the wrong room !!!!! So we had to repack and move to another room. I must say I wasn't very happy about that.... More

It was our fourth stay at Campbell House smack in the middle of all the excitement that Georgetown has to offer. Surrounded by markets, history, the best eating places, temples, Chinese herbalist shops, Indian flower stands and the vibrant colours and life that is Georgetown. Campbell House still offers top quality accommodation and hospitality at minimal cost and is the... More

W've travelled a lot. Stayed in 5 star hotels which we find sterile. If U want swimming pools & gym stay somewhere else. If U want 2 stay in a wonderful colonial building with lovely appointed rooms run by beautiful people then Campbell House is the place of choice in Georgetown Penang. We stayed in the loft split level apartment... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at CH. Located in the heart of the old town in Georgetown, the building is a lovingly restored colonial era shophouse. Upon arrival, Sharon, general manager, gave us a good orientation to the neighborhood as well as tips for shopping and eating. We arrived early in the day but our room was ready and... More
