Family of three visited the place. Very nice place. Rooms are good and well kept and gave you the experience of going back to 18h century old family home. The location is good, within walking distance with some good restaurant. A very relaxing holiday for the family and looking forward to come back soon!

It was a dream-like experience ~ to be able to stay in such a well preserved old Mansion, even for one single night is counted as a true blessing! The peacefulness and the flow of serene energy was amazing, I had such a good & relax sleep in the mansion and I even forgot to lock my bedroom door !... More

My family and I just had a most lovely stay at the Blue Mansion. It's an amazing place. So rich in History, and tastefully restored. The Manager, James, and all the staff were excellent and attentive, and made us feel like House Guests. recommend it.

The Blue Mansion exudes historic charm. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast very good. Lots of lovely touches added to the welcoming atmosphere. e.g Early evening, two delicious chocolates were presented with a hand written note. Perhaps a more comfortable armchair is all that is lacking. Wifi good.

This is must place to visit when you traveling to Penang. The indigo blue is stunning and catch my eyes. I booked a tour on the last round. The lady called Pat was my guide. She had a sense of humor with a great story telling skill. The tour was fun and memorable. Thanks the owner of this property for... More

The Blue Mansion Hotel in Penang is an oasis of calm. The outside noise did not interfere with a good night's sleep. The restaurant was excellent with good service. The history of the building is very fascinating and we took the daily tour to fond out more. This is definitely a place to return to.

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
