Great service
The reception lady is really helpful. The room is spacious and nice decorated. Very comfortable bed. Nearby there are a lot of eatery. Take a uber or taxi to gurney plaza or the penang hill is very convenient and cheap. If you want to stay in the centre of the George Town, rather than the beach side, this is absolutely a great place to stay. Btw, must join the tour group in Cheong Fatt Tze mansion, the lady called Christina is so passionate!! Just love it.

A lovely place
Was truly impressed by the hospitality of the front desk personnel - Rachel. We were greeted warmly and promptly given a welcome drink. The hotel and rooms are beautifully decorated and fitted. Simply charming with every angle fit for a photo shoot.

We stayed at Campell House to experience George Town with our ten month old son. Even before we had arrived the staff were incredibly helpful in arranging an airport transfer. Once we had arrived we were warmly welcomed and although our room wasn't ready given lot of information, maps and recommendations on places to see artwork and restaurants. Upon our return our luggage was already in our extremely clean and beautifully decorate room. Everything about this hotel is fantastic the staff, roof top terrace, library, room facilities and breakfast. I would defiantly stay here again.
