A Very Nice Stay
It was a nice hotel stay. The staff were friendly and the room was nicely set. BTW, I like the Italian restaurant in the hotel a lot. I will definitely revisit.

Always a gem in this heritage town!
My second visit here. Always a pleasure to stay. Breakfast is fantastic as before. Location wise, one can always walk to all the heritage sites within Georgetown. Highly recommended.

Not for light sleeper...
Read a lot of positive reviews and decided to give Campbell House a try. I wanted to go for Deluxe superior room (specifically Colonial room) but was worried i don't get the room i wanted so i went for Opium. Not the best choice obviously. The veranda bed is rather inconvenient as it was pushed all the way in to the wall, making it especially hard for midnight toilet trips without waking up my husband. Extremely noisy as well due to its location (facing the main street) The only quiet time is 1am - 5am. All that aside, toilet is beautiful and clean. Shower is great. Bed super comfy and great choices of pillows. I booked a 2 night stay and decided to change to another room for the second night. Checked with the hotel staff if there was any available room for the day and was told i need to pay an extra RM 80 for the switch (with really unfriendly tone and manner) I don't really understand why though because Opium cost more than the other rooms on the same floor. I paid up anyway as i really wanted a quieter room. The staff's response kinda ruined my day (didn't get her name though) Chose the Calligraphy room and loving every bit of it! Bed is huge and the room is so much more quiet than Opium (some street noise is inevitable) but I'm more than happy. I absolutely appreciate the breakfast in bed and the surprise dessert with ice tea in the fridge. Downside: one unfriendly staff + noise Upside: everything else really (oh one of the front desk staff refunded me the RM 80 i paid for the switch so its a bonus for me) I would definitely come back again!

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.

Like a Cosy BnB
Beautiful unique rooms, warm personalised service, attention to details like a BnB. Love that they gave guests options for welcome drinks and ala carte breakfast. Love the surprise tiramisu and ice tea in the fridge, espresso machine, comfy big bed, good aircon. Walking distance to a few popular street art, good tim sum across the road. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
