Kudos to the owners for having the passion in the restoration efforts in preserving this beautiful mansion. The food serving is also worth the try. A great experience visiting this place and abounding with such history. The architect Lawrence, is deeply passionately involved in the restoration efforts in Georgetown.

With such spacious grounds, comfortable room and friendly staff, my daughter and I will definitely return to stay on our next visit to the island. The mansion is wonderfully restored and tastefully decorated. The red lanterns along the corridor reminded me of the movie Raise the Red Lantern! Thank you Mr Poh for the free parking coupons.

This place is poetry in the form of architecture. It's a beautiful mansion. An old Chinese mansion turned into a B&B with the best decor, comfort and service. The staff is incredibly friendly. The location is perfect as well. You can just walk to all the key places in Georgetown. It is also surrounded by nice restaurants and eating options.... More

Firstly, I come to Penang often for business and leisure, and I've stayed in a number of Penang's converted heritage/boutique hotels so I'm comparing my stay with other stays in similar hotels in Penang. I think this place was one of the original converted heritage houses in Penang, but it is being given a run for its money by a... More

Pat was our tour guide. Very funny, makes the tour interesting. I'm not into heritage and the likes but I found the tour interesting! Our guide went onto explain out the past owner GFT and how he became so successful. Worth 45mins of your time. At worse you will get to see a nice old building!

Very impressive heritage architecture that takes you back in time. Has an interesting history. Nice backdrop for a photoshoot. We had western food ( I guess because it was a conference) and it was just mediocre. Nothing to shout about. Food rating is simply average .... It is the architecture and ambiance that gets the very good ranking.
