Travelers' Choice
Come Home to Historic Splendour 'One of 10 Greatest Mansions In The World' - Lonely Planet 2011. A grand mansion conceived and constructed by a Grand Man; an eminent edifice which history calls home; a peerless representation of the Paradigm Chinese Courtyard House – the Cheong Fatt Tze “Blue” Mansion has been perfectly poised for over a century on firm foundations of architectural, cultural and historic superlatives. Essentially an ‘heirloom with rooms’, today, the Mansion readily bequeaths its charms to visitors who are able to indulge in exclusive heritage stays, guided tours; and beautifully tailored events on its premises. The favourite home of the “Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China”, the Mansion is undoubtedly also the favourite home of George Town.

The Cheong Fatt Tze mansion proved to be a place that really charms you the way your rich grandparents would charm you. At first glance when you walk into the hotel or the room, it might not seem as impressive as the Edison which is across the street, that took a more colonial approach compared to the traditional asian influence at the Blue Mansion. However, after spending a night there, you start to feel very at home, you will feel like you visited your rich grandparents house, and throughout your stay you will feel at home. I stayed for 4 nights and it was such a joy, i did not leave the hotel throughout my stay. If you want to experience an authentic feeling of how it was to live in a house in the 50s, that is really asian influenced, this is the place to go for. I would definitely recommend for longer stays

Always wanted to have an extended stay in this beautiful heritage mansion and now its possible with special rates to fit company's budget. Room guests are able to access all compounds where tour and diners cant so there was lots of privacy for guests even if there is tourist and diners visiting the main building. It's the best time to have a staycation now with the pandemic rates and there wasnt as much crowd like before. The hotel did their best to distant the rooms of guests best they can over the nites. Our room was upgrades to Escoy, with access to the garden and pool,pretty much to ourselves. The mansion is rich with flavour and very strategically located in the heart of Georgetown, surrounded by great food and attractions at walking distance. Every corner of the mansion is a gem to admire shining differently in day and night I was still missing it after 3 nites there. Downside is the breakfast experience was so good (with option of Courtyard or in/outside room) that I couldnt have enough appetite quota to try other breakfast option around. Definitely worth even any locals for a nite or 2 staycation at this beautiful place and appreciate the owners for keeping this heritage alive for all to admire.

We spent a mid-week night at this beautiful hotel, and loved it! The room was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated in keeping with the history of the mansion. The staff were attentive and gracefully accommodated our request to dine privately and romantically in the courtyard. The ambience was atmospheric and quite magical, and we slept very well too. Highly recommended

We took advantage of the really good last minute midweek rates being offered. Everything about the stay was perfect. Check-in was easy, the staff were all so polite and helpful, room was really comfortable and clean, breakfast was delicious and most importantly to me - the health and safety SOP's were followed by everyone at the mansion.
