So glad we stayed here, the owners have done a tremendous job sympathetically restoring this place. We stayed it the Colonial and it was gorgeous. Bed was very comfy, the staff - shout out to Kumar - were amazing. Recommendations given for food and sight seeing were really appreciated, wish we had longer to try all of them out. Nice touches all over such as afternoon cake and generous breakfasts. Location was excellent near Tai Tong and Chulia St, really good value for money. You won't get this anywhere else in the world, it's a really special place.

Ask my family, this is very rare for me, but I cannot find fault with anything. Gorgeous place with wonderful attention to detail - and that applies to the house, the rooms and the service. The bed was heavenly and in no other hotel did we find our fridge stocked with iced tea, fresh milk and a little bedtime treat! Also, it's very conveniently located and allows you to reach most places in the old town on foot in 10 - 15 minutes. Totally recommend!

I would have rated it 4 stars if not for the anxiety we faced during the whole transfer to airport (we are lucky to be last one to check in). I booked the transfer through the hotel (10 mins before the time I stated) and they accepted it. The wait for the taxi was 30 mins long despite constant reminders and telling us that cab on the way. The staff blamed on the heavy traffic in the area and our last min request but when I used Grab app, a car can arrive in 6-8 mins. I will definitely rely on Grab than hotel transfer. The room and bathroom was big, service was good at restaurant. They recognised the guests and take pride in serving us. Other than the above incident, I would say it is a great stay. There are many nice food nearby and it is convenient to get around (I called grab). Hotel strive to go green, so some amenities were provided upon request. They provided water in a bottle and ice tea to cool down during the hot day. They also have daily special, like cake and tiramisu which was nice. Bed was comfortable, heater was hot and air con was cold. Only complaint is that my room had mosquito issue and was not resolved when I check out. Breakfast was sumptuous but we didn’t get to try all.

Hotel Arranged an airport pickup. Daniel the driver was polite. The car was clean and well kept. The air freshener was too strong, it gave me a headache. Provided water too and Respects guest privacy. I don’t like talking on car rides. Daniel was great! Check-in & Check Out Was very easy and quick. The owner Nardia was great and very informative. They had a very cool method of taking my luggage up to the room. The highlight of my stay! The Room: Stayed in the Opium Room. Well maintained and very clean. They have turned down service too. I was missing room slippers and toothbrushes but their front desk guy, Adnan was nice to provide me with a pair of slippers and a toothbrush upon request. The Restaurant: Service was great from the staff. I remember Jay and Adnan. Both were courteous and informative. As recommended my main course and dessert. I was pleased with the recommendations. Would I recommend the place? Certainly. It’s suitable for business and leisure visits. Location, service, and f&b are beyond satisfactory.

My 4 night stay at Campbell House was a very special treat indeed. The eco-friendly hotel lived up to the reputation from reviews I read in every possible way. Spacious, beautifully designed rooms, luxuries amenities, impeccable service. I started each day with a delicious, hearty ala carte breakfast. All staff were warm and sincere, and outstanding at every point. Campbell House definitely exceeded my expectations and it won’t be long before I plan another trip back. With special thanks to Kumar, Mr Lim and Jay.

Our family of 4 was wowed by the service, warmth and friendliness of everyone in the hotel. Nardya and her team were fantastic, making us feel welcomed and making sure we enjoy our trip. The rooms are large and beautifully furnished, makes us feel at home after a day’s walking outside. There is even ice lemon tea and best of all, a serving of cake every afternoon, makes a welcome treat. Breakfast was good, coffee was even better. We dined at the restaurant 3 times and were not disappointed with the food, every dish was delicious and the desserts were yummy! We would like to thank Nardya and all her team for a awesome stay in Penang.

Multi award winning Campbell House has been on our "to visit" list for years. Finally got to stay there this week and can-not recommend the place highly enough. The attention to detail and passion owners Nardya and Roberto have lavished on the establishment are evident even before you step through the front door. Their hard work and dedication have kept this gem of a hotel afloat during the trying times of the last few years. The luxurious rooms and harmonious decor will not fail to please the most discerning guests. Then there is the food, authentic Italian at its very best. Not to mention the great service, friendly, hardworking staff and prime location in the very heart of George Town. I could go on and on .....

By far the best place to stay in Penang. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with warmth and hospitality. We were given a welcome drink so delicious we could have drank an entire pitcher of them. Since we arrived a great deal earlier than check in, they held our bags for us and even recommended some things to do in the surrounding area to pass the time while they got our room ready. We took their recommendation and were not disappointed! When we arrived back, we were shown to our room. The first things you notice in this hotel is the historic feel. They have done an excellent job making you feel like you’ve stepped back into another time when staying at a hotel was supposed to be a personal experience not just a place to lay your head. We felt right at home. The room had antique furniture, beautiful finishes, and luxury bath products. The hotel has done away with single use plastics so all of the products are full sized, it is a nice touch to an already luxurious experience. The room was spacious with beautiful soft light coming in from the colorful glass window panes. Our room came with coffee, tea, glass bottle of drinking water, and a delicious iced lemon tea…all replaced daily. If you have the opportunity to stay in the Rose Room we highly recommend it. Breakfast at the hotel is an experience unlike any other property we’ve stayed at. It is served down stairs, the restaurant has an atmosphere that makes you feel like you are in a movie. The food is unparalleled in quality and you will not leave hungry, we can assure you of that. From fresh fruit, to home made breads, to main courses that rival some of the best breakfast restaurants we’ve been to. This is by far the best hotel breakfast we have had or will have. In closing, this is a must stay off you are coming to Penang! We can’t wait to come back!
