Dinner was fantastic last night at this quaint hotel, it was cooked to perfection. It was nice to have a different menu after eating Chinese for the last week, so a welcome meal was had by both my husband and my self, thank you.

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 !!

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.

Moved here for my last two nights in George Town and it was the best decision I made. From the moment I stepped in, the staff were friendly, and helpful, providing recommendations of sites to see, what to do, and how to get there, as well as food recommendations. They checked to see you knew where you were going when...

Nice service : smiling and helpful staff. Beautiful room : the charm of old furniture, and a lot of space. Wonderful breakfast. Good location, easy to walk to nearby street food and restaurants. Penang is an island worth discovering : we would have liked to stay longer!
