“Remembering old Penang”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The few days stay in Campbell House gave me a nostalgic feeling of old Penang. Good location and comfortable rooms. What I value is the friendly services provided by Nardya and her staff. They do go all out to cater for our needs especially we came in as a family with 2 boisterous kids and a baby. Keep up the good work!

We loved it! The rooms are beautifully and thoughtfully appointed and very comfortable. The location was great, right in the thick of the charm of Georgetown. The breakfast was lovely and dinner at Il Baccoro was simple and delicious. Hats off to the chef! Nardya, Roberto, Kumar, Charmaine and Shakira and your professional team - thank you! Great double gin and tonics!

My wife and i stayed only one night at Campbell House but wished we had a longer stay to enjoy their great hospitality. Every aspect of the hotel was enjoyable including location, staff attitude, services cleanliness, cooperation and competence. Highly recommended for a visit to Penang.

Campbell House comes highly recommended. From the beautiful decor to the welcoming staff, I couldn't think of a better place to stay in Georgetown. The little details are what makes this place special.

My husband & I stayed at Campbell House from 1 June to 6 June 2013 We have traveled a lot and it's not often I look back on a holiday and savor every moment. But in the case of Campbell House in combination with Il Bacaro I can hardly wait to return next year (yes I've booked already it was that good) I can't fault anything. What is it that made it so good?
The owners Roberto and Nardya and their fabulous staff were the most important. We always felt not that we were in a hotel but guests in their home The relaxed and beautiful decor throughout added to that feeling. Then there was Il Bacaro and the wonderful cooking of Mario. Again there was that feeling of being an honoured guest in a home. From the generous breakfasts to the best panna cotta and tiramusu I have ever eaten ( you'll gather I love my desserts) we ended up eating dinner there every night
If you go to Georgetown Penang do yourself a favour and stay at Campbell House I guarantee you will not regret having made the decision to do so.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful but if you are older chose a room on the first floor due to the steepnes...

Just had an excellent long weekend in Georgetown, and a big reason for that was Campbell House. The place itself has a lot of character, being a lovingly restored period building, but (cliche-time) it's not the place, it's the people. Friendly, full of tips and ideas, and always there with a smile, Nardya, Roberto, Kumar and the crew (sorry for not mentioning everyone!) really made this a special holiday. This is a team that make a difference not just for the people that stay there but also for the community, by supporting local artists and events, as well as encouraging tourists to explore the culinary delights available in the locality. Can't wait to go back! Melanie & Harry :)

Wow what a pleasant surprise. If I were to sum up my experience at the Campbell House, I would say: elegant, stylish and comfortable.

Lovely décor, including some antique furniture and artwork placed throughout the accommodations. The staff are pleasant and helpful and everything went smooth. I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Breakfast was great and I honestly felt like it was an escape and retreat from the busyness of the old quarter. Very comfortable beds and living arrangements.
