We chose Campbell House for a Penang staycation and are so happy that we did! Living in Penang, we have been fans of the hotel’s restaurant, Il Bacaro, for years, but this was our first time staying in the hotel. It was even better than we expected. Our room was beautifully furnished, with extraordinary and welcome attention to detail of the kind we rarely find in Malaysia. It was quiet, calm, and the bed was luxuriously comfortable. The staff were helpful, friendly, welcoming and responsive when needed but unobtrusive when not. We highly recommend it!

We first visited Campbell House 10 years ago, not long after it opened, and have stayed there several times since. Wanting a staycation we re-visited after about five years and found it even better than we remembered. Beautiful rooms decorated with antiques but equipped with every modern facility. An excellent Italian restaurant downstairs. Friendly and efficient staff. Located in the middle of Georgetown. What more could you want. Living in Penang ourselves we always recommend Campbell House to any visitors and are looking forward to our next Staycation there.

My second visit after a gap of 5+ years, and little has changed, which for campbell house it meant the same attention to detail and high levels of service. If there are any faults, it is only that the floorboards creak a lot, and there are no parking, something a guest would have to bear in mind and accept as it is a heritage building in a heritage area.

If you are wanting a special place where you are looked after like royalty on one hand and like family on the other look no further than Campbell House. All rooms have been beautifully renovated with individual themes from the original 19th centre shophouse and the staff always welcome us warmly ( we choose a different room each time!) We have made this delightful boutique hotel our go-to for a romantic getaway every few months and Il Bacaro, their superb Italian restaurant just finishes off our staycation with elegance. Thankyou Nadia and staff for welcoming us each time. Your service is par excellence, breakfasts amazing and it gives us an opportunity to explore the wonderful nooks and crannies that are the quintessential historic Georgetown.
