Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 January 2017

Very friendly and helpful staff made our stay most enjoyable.

The breakfast included in the room rate was exceptional...with delicious fresh fruit juices. We live in Kuala Lumpur but wanted a few nights in Penang over the New Year with our family. Although the room rate was certainly high for that period, the rooms were very clean, simple but also authentic for the period of the building. We spent some time up on the roof terrace on New Year's Eve enjoying the fireworks at midnight.

The Italian restaurant associated with the House (where breakfast is served) is highly recommended as well, although there are fabulous places to eat and drink at all around Georgetown and all within walking distance.

The only disadvantage is having to find car parking along the streets, which are very busy most of the time. Although I think the rate was too high for our stay, it was during a peak period..I am sure it is much lower for much of the year. We would recommend it to others...

Room Tip: The top floor has easier access to the Roof Terrace, but you have two flights of stairs to climb.

Dear Jenny,

Thank you for choosing Campbell House for your Christmas /New Year break from KL.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us and appreciated all the effort the staff put in to make your stay as memorable and pleasant as possible. Being in the heart of Georgetown parking spaces on the street are limited and unfortunately we do not have allocated spaces,(we have tried...) however we are lucky enough to have several car parks within a minutes walk to our hotel which is quite convenient. Regarding the room rate we only put our prices up slightly during the peak period as do all hotels but we feel we are priced fairly through this time and throughout the year, unfortunately costs in Malaysia have increased substantially as I am sure you have seen living in KL, however we always reinvest to maintain the property and give the best quality of amenities and products that we can can in order to provide our guests a better service. We thank you for recommending us to your friends and we look forward to welcome you back to Penang and Campbell House again in the future.
All the very best for 2017!

Warm Regards

Nardya, roberto & All at Campbell House

What a great place to stay. I'm so happy we chose to stay here. It's not just the accommodation or the location, it's the extra effort the staff and management put into making our stay a pleasant one.
A great breakfast starts the day, a hearty good morning from the staff makes it even better.
Those little extras make the difference like the drinks in the fridge and the afternoon treats. I could get used to that!
So much help and information, especially from Joey ensures you get the most from your visit.
Great service and a delightful stay.

I came to Penang last year with my wife for the first time and stayed at Campbell House. It's a really nice hotel with very friendly staff. The room that we stayed in (Peacock) was so beautiful with all the facilities necessary. I truly enjoyed my stay of two nights in this room- felt very homely. The breakfast was very nice, and the restaurant staff was also very friendly providing us with a really good service. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Penang :)

Stayed here for 4 nights on our travels through Malaysia and it was first class from start to finish. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the bedroom was very spacious and tastefully decorated with the comfiest bed. Breakfast was served in a cosy restaurant with fresh fruit fresh squeezed juices natural yoghurt homemade breads and a fantastic selection of hot meals which will keep you going while you explore the fantastic George town.great terrace to enjoy a few drinks on after a long day.Cant reccomend this hotel enough.looking forward to our next visit already

1st stop on our Malaysia jaunt and I have to say that our future stops will have a lot to live up too.This place lives up to its number one ranking.
Before we even arrived they had been v prompt with replying to all our enquiries and arranging transfers.
Beautiful old colonial building perfectly located near all the sights and sounds of Georgetown.
Our Room(Opium) was great lovely four poster bed and decent shower and bath to boot!
Breakfast was excellent good coffee and multiple tea options. Freshly squeezed OJ and fresh warm bread and multitude of egg options that set you up for the day.
We also ate in II Bacaro the in house Italian restaurant which was top notch and authentic.
Nice little touch every afternoon where they delivered sweet or savoury dishes to your room.
Fantastic consistent service with a smile from everyone from domestic staff, front of house and owner. They clearly care and it shows.
We were sad to leave. Can't recommend this place enough. If your visiting Georgetown then come here.
