If value confort, historical value and charming taste, this is the place where to stay in George Town. My only concern is that next to the Blue Mansion there is food court that every night has a live show that goes runs until 3 am. It could be disturbing.

The house is beautiful and it was so interesting to learn the history of the family. Poh, our guide, really made it come alive. Tours are at 11, 2 and 3.30. It was well worth a visit, and if you can afford to stay here, I am sure it would be amazing!

Such a great place to stay in wtih so much history. I didnt expect the room and bathroom to look so modern and new..love it! Service is also very personalised since it has only 18rooms. The breakfast spread is yummeh..I love the handwritten notes that James left us everyday..thanks for this great experience and we will definitely visit again.

The Mansion, room size and ambience are up to expectation and I would give it an excellent rating. But however the service level has pulled it down to an overall Average rating. The staff are very courteous but there are much room for improvement on attentiveness. Here are some incidences that have let us down: 1. We are not served... More

We really enjoyed the historical building. And, restaurant was also grate. However, already I had mentioned at the check out, that night was so crowded near the hotel... Anyhow, we spent a memorable time during the stay, thank you from Japan.

We stayed in the Mandarin Suite for one night - our time was too short. We have visited this property several times to show friends around and always thought we would like to stay there. The opportunity arose on a visit this time - we were not disappointed. James, the general manager, was extremely pleasant and keen to talk to... More

This charming and gentle hotel is a great place to relax. It was so nice to have a physical connection to history. The staff are wonderful and so helpful. The Blue Mansion is walking distance to the Penang town centre which is great place to explore.

Surrounded by history and beauty, we had a difficult time leaving the Blue Mansion after three delightful nights. James and his staff run a tight ship: the premises are immaculately kept up and the breakfast scrumptious. We lucked out with a stay 3 night/pay for two promotion. Be sure to take the tour on the first day in order to... More

We did a tour of this delightful house. It is wonderful to see this place that has been restored to its former glory. We were impressed by the enthusiasm of the tour guide. A must when travelling to Penang!!!
