            Fabulous hotel!”

            We loved every minute of our stay in The Blue Mansion. The restoration of this magnificent heritage property is immaculate and the rooms are wonderfully comfortable. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient, and the breakfasts amazing. If you want an unforgetable stay in Penang then stay here...or at least visit for a drink or join one of the tours (which don't intrude at all on the guests).

            Beautiful looking mansion”

            Pros: - beautiful spacious room and mansion - comfortable beds - good location - nice little local delicacies in the room - tasty breakfast in the dining room with friendly server Cons: - air cond was definitely too hot for our room (yan tai) - we came in the evening around 5-6pm for check in, for a boutique hotel with the blue mansion class, they should have prepared all rooms to be comfortable when guests check in. In our case, all aircon were not turned on, water heater was not turned on, so we waited for some time to get comfortable in the room and to take shower with hot water. - the next day breakfast, we requested to take away 1breakfast as one of us needed to go to hospital early. In the hospital when he wanted to eat his breakfast, he needs to use his hands to eat eggs, as no cutleries prepared for his takeaway breakfast. - the wooden windows in our room could not be closed properly, with the aircond not strong enough plus the open window, had a not really good sleep. The blue mansion should take a better care for maintenance like that. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful mansion and a must visit when in Penang

            Wow, what a place! This has to be one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed - the building is lovely to explore and photograph and the rooms are spacious and authentic. The staff were amazing and helped us with all our needs. Breakfast was fantastic and there was a Nespresso machine in our room which is always useful! The swimming pool is great too. The mansion is located next to a Chinese food market which is useful. Highly recommended!

            Probably the most beautiful hotel I have stayed in. The rooms were lovely with a comfortable bed and stunning furniture. The staff wonderful and all the little touches like a personalised message written on a leaf delivered to your door each afternoon with a box of sweet treats. Breakfast was good and the bar prices surprisingly reasonable for a hotel of this standard. The swimming pool on the garden was very welcome after a long days sightseeing .

            AMAZING EXPERIENCE”

            I stayed for 4 nights at the Blue Mansion with my sister - We were so amazed with the lifestory of Cheong Fatt Tze amd how this how evolve through the change of time. The staff were awesome from Daniel who is the manager from day 1 to all the other staff especially love the two men during breakfast who I regrefully forgot their names - they were so warm and cheerful in the morning. The breakfast was always lovely - The room was beautiful and clean,. I love the shower too. For a traveller like us who have been to many hotels , the Blue Mansion is a wonderful experience and it will always be in our happy memory - a bucketlist checked to live in a heritage Mansion! Grateful to the staff for making us feel at home and special mention to their old staff in his 60s who we also forgot his name- he made an effort to talk to us about Penang and gave us some tips - and also to the guards who makes an effort to greet us when we go home at night making us feel at home. Feeling blessed

I'm definitely glad we stayed here, as it gave us a chance to really explore the mansion and take it it's beauty (at night the red lanterns light up which is really lovely).

            All was brilliant until checkout at 4am when the taxi which had been prebooked through the hotel ( and checked on twice previously) didn’t come and wasn’t coming. Then we were left to drag our own bags out to the front of the hotel and get a GrabTaxi at the kerbside at 4am.

            Exquisite heritage haven - must stay here ”

            This heritage property has been stunningly restored to its former glory and it was therefore a pleasure and a privilege to stay in it. My room was unique, spacious, clean, well kitted out and tastefully decorated. The en suite bathroom had a massive rain shower. I was greeted each day with fresh fruit and Chinese sweets. Breakfast was tasty, varied, plentiful and well laid out in the courtyard. The bar had a great selection of cocktails and good house wine available during its happy hour. The Indigo restaurant had a lovely ambience. The dining was fine, but not ‘fine dining’ standard in my view. More finesse with the cooking and presentation is required. The staff were polite, enthusiastic and helpful. There are lovely communal areas to relax. It is well located for sights and restaurants or street food, and a relaxing haven to return to after a day’s sightseeing.

            The building itself needs no introduction,, atmospheric, mesmerising, peaceful. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff etc... The style of food on offer at breakfast (by request) and the food served in the restaurant Indigo is a strange, slightly lost, east/west fusion. Sometimes the large tour groups can make moving around the hotel uncomfortable.

            Extremely Noisy.”

            I would not advise anyone to stay in this hotel, especially if you take what is supposed to be the best room, the Yentai Suites. there is foodcourt next building that has live ladyboy singing mega loud until midnight everynight. For paying that kind of price I would expect the management not tonplace guests in a room where even with the earplugs provided, you really can t sleep until the live band stops. there are ridiculous eindows shades that do not close properly so good idea, poor execution. Again, much better to visit the beautiful mansion than stay in it. would never return nor recommend.

            The hotel would of got 5 stars across the board but for a new bar that opened at the side and across the road from it. I really felt sorry for Daniel the manager and his whole team who I have to say we're brilliant. They have been on to the authorities to try and get the music stopped. The music is so loud that if you are staying on that side of the hotel you wouldn't be able to sleep even with ear plugs. But please don't let me stop anyone from staying there, its a wonderful place.

            I would recommend this place to the traveler who is not after modern luxuries that you will find with the new hotels. This place has a sentimental vibe and will be appreciated most especially by Asians who can relate to the architecture and design of the property. We stayed for 1 night and for me that is already enough. You will definitely get a lot of nice pictures.

            Luxury amidst UNESCO heritage”

            Stunned by beauty everywhere you look, the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion is a historic monument to its founder and to the architects & company that have done the restoration. The accommodation was luxurious, unique & opulent, reflecting the history of the Mansion & its original owner. Attentive staff, wonderful food and a great pool to cool down in. Magnificent stay:)

            The Best of the Old and the New”

            The Blue Mansion offers unique decor and atmosphere in a house built beautifully to last by "The Rockefeller of the East." Only two other similar houses exist in the world outside China. This unique beauty is enjoyed with all modern comforts, and excellent food and helpful, well-trained staff by Malaysian standards. This is a must-stay, bucket-list experience which we loved.

            honoured to stay at such a historical place”

            the history of this mansion is amazing, we felt so honoured to be able to stay at this beautiful mansion for a few nights! do note that the mansion do not serve a wide spread of international buffet breakfast like what other commercial hotels do. however, the spread is good enough to not to let u start the day with empty stomach. please please make an effort to join the free mansion tour. the rich history and the restoration of the mansion will make one in awe!

            History with comfort”

            Flight delay meant arrival at 3am. In the darkness I thought I had made a poor choice. Step over the step and its magnificent. This is classic Straits Chinese, quiet courtyards, tastefully restored, history at every view and elegant, rich wood work and tiling. Excellent tasteful service, wonderful ambience and a pleasing austerity in the large high ceiling bedroom. Modern, crisply clean bathroom. Breakfast is quaint and in keeping with the history. Not a big selection, but who cares when you are eating in a quiet courtyard. The upstairs fine dining is fine period dining with modern food. This is a dining room to be proud of. Tastefully and accurately restored, this is a hotel for quiet contemplation and relaxation. Ive seen this listed as 4 star and 3 star, but I would class it as 4.9. Its not for those who want modern cookie-cutter hotels. If you want charm, service, a sense of history and real ambience then this is the place to go.
