Info : Campbell House
Comprised of 12 tastefully designed rooms, Campbell House is an exceptional heritage hotel in the heart of Georgetown in Penang.
Housed in an old three-storey colonial building, the property has been loving restored and recrafted and the result is small hotel with a very big heart.
Experienced hoteliers Nardya and Roberto fused their combined knowledge to create their vision of the perfect hotel, pulling the essential services from luxury hotels and mixing with the personalisation and down-to-earth atmosphere of less formal operations.
Every detail has been carefully considered on both the design and service fronts. The rooms themselves exude character and sophistication without being over the top. Functional design is the goal and this comes across throughout the property. Small but practical, the rooms feature comfortable beds, period furniture and excellent en-suite bathrooms. All are equipped with quality coffee and tea making facilities, minibar, fast wifi and organic toiletries. Staff and service in general at the hotel are exceptional throughout.
To complete the offering, Campbell House has probably the best Italian restaurant in Penang, with advance bookings usually required for dinner. It is here that in house guests are served the excellent breakfasts.
Campbell House is a quality heritage hotel in an ideal location for exploring the myriad of cultural and dining options that Penang offers. With a host of awards and recommendations to back this claim up, Campbell House will be the first port of call for many travellers visiting this unique and diverse Malaysian city.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
Our guide, Mr Rous Ry was so well informed and so passionate about Cambodia that he transformed the holiday. I now can't even imagine trying to understand Angkor Wat without his explanations of the history of Hinduism, Buddhism and the Khmer empire. He also took on board that I am interested in old industrial processes and this helped with visits to an old fish paste factory, a blacksmith, a pottery, a brickworks and various railway sites. This was all done with a charming sense of humour and enthusiasm.
