We love our "baby moon" stay at the Campbell House.

Nespresso coffee in each room, locally sourced decor and toiletries, and a fabulous breakfast set make Campbell House our favorite pick for a...

Great place. Had an enjoyable stay there though only a short visit. Cosy place, good breakfast and ideal location; near to lots of eatery places within walking distances and UNESCO Heritage walks. Wonderful hosts (feel like home), helpful and ever responsive to our needs, esp with my wife's knee conditions.

They work hard to achieve a level of service that largely remains a foreign concept in this country. There are many thoughtful touches in the room, and the breakfast at Il Bacaro is outstanding, with homemade jams and bread and many choices. It all makes the small lacks stand out more: only 3 TV channels, rather noisy AC, room safe...

Lovely small friendly charming and comfortable hotel right in the heart of George Town. Also excellent restaurant, with great breakfasts and other meals should you want them. Every room unique, with interesting antique furniture and furnishings, lots of great little touches. Staff incredibly helpful and friendly. Can't recommend it too highly.
