We stayed in this hotel for 2 days with my sister. We just fell in love with this place, very stylish, with a coffee machine in our room, home made fresh ice tea, lovely library, terrace, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. The place is not a typical hotel accommodation, the whole experience feels like being a guest in a very...

My partner and I stayed in Campbell house for the weekend, and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Penang after this. The place is gorgeously and meticulously restored, with beautiful antique furniture and quaint details throughout the entire house. The best part of our stay though, was the service. The owners are absolutely lovely and warm, and Eric...

Spent 5 fantastic nights at the Campbell House in November. It’s a brand new gem of a hotel, in a fabulous location. Enjoyed the intimate scale of the property and the stylish décor. The owners Nardya and Roberto were very hands on (which translated into excellent service) and incredibly sweet – showing my sister and I the local market as...

My friend and I recently had a fantastic stay in Campbell House. The beautifully restored property is in a great location in the center of Georgetown.

In the middle of the historical area of Georgetown, this newly remodeled hotel has 11 suites, all themed differently from each other. It is new but has all of the old world charm. Bonus is the Authentic Italian restaurant on the ground floor. Service was great as the owners are hands on and want to make sure everything is done...

Campbell House has many things to recommend it: 1. Brilliant location. Situated right-smack in the heart of the city centre, the hotel is within easy walking distance of key heritage sites and the best eateries on the island. 2. Stylish but not souless. The antique-accented interiors speak firmly of place without sacrificing comfort at the altar of nostalgia. Public areas...

I stayed at Campbell House in the second week of its opening and was not disappointed! The House is located right bang in the middle of bustling Georgetown, and it felt good to be staying amidst the hustle and bustle of clothing wholesalers on one street and goldsmiths and jewelers on another adjacent street. Step into the calm and cool...

This hotel is for the discerning traveller who enjoys understated elegance while being located in the heart of Georgetown's vibrant old China town, where things have little changed in several hundred years; for the spice, smells and hum of the east this is the authentic place to be for the traveller who does NOT want the big homogenised and soulless...
