This is my second stay at Campbell's House. The room we had, Indochine, was big and spacious and great to come back to after a day exploring Penang. The staff were all lovely and very helpful and went out of their way to accomodate every request. We dined in Il Bacaro once. The food was reasonably good. Would definitely stay...

A beautiful Boutique hotel with class and character. All the rooms have been sympathetically restored and filled with lovely antique furniture but this hotel is no museum . The bathrooms are gorgeous . The communal area thoughtful , useful and a lovely space . The roof garden is a great place to read and listen to the hustle and bustle...

Booked "The Loft" room for an overnight stay on a Friday for something different. Great service, location & room. Overall the restoration of this hotel is of very high standard as you'd expect it to be as one of the more expensive options in George Town. I think the value is definitely there though. The hotel is right in the...

Beautiful boutique hotel. Loved the fact that the restoration was so true to the historical character of Georgetown but at the same time accomodating the tastebuds of Westerners with the Italian restaurant and a nespresso machine in the room. We didn't try the restaurant as on our last day it was booked for a function. However the breakfast was amazing....

We liked the idea of taking the shoes off before you go upstairs to the rooms , the rooms were very clean and had great character ! We loved the library area where you can relax and read with your choice of drinks , the rooms even have mobile chargers which I was very pleased to find !!

Stayed 3 nights in the room named INDOCHINE. Very comfortable bed and pillows. BUT there is a small step down from the bed area to the rest of the room. Not being careful enough, I missed the step twice and almost fell, so I had to put my baggage by the step to remind me about it. Nardya and Roberto,...

Dear LarryLAP, Thank you for your review and mostly positive comments, we did of course also expect the negative tone. We are sorry you and your wife decided to check out of Campbell House, and were not interested in any alternative options that we offered to you.

“The hotel has 11 rooms in 3 floors no elevator so if stairs are an issue ask for a low floor. Was not a problem for me at all and I am 57.”
glendamailloux, 5 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Choose a room in the first floor because there are no elevators.”
AAR-AITC, 27 Feb 2017 | Read review
“Avoid 2nd floor (too warm), avoid rooms near noisy street, avoid Colonial room (hottest room due to airco external units on outside wall)”
LarryLAP, 26 Feb 2017 | Read review
“Any room - all have double glazing!”
