Sophisticated and sumptuous, Campbell House occupies a grand triple-storey corner building in the heart of Penang’s UNESCO heritage zone and offers a range of luxurious Asian-themed rooms overlooking the streets below featuring high ceilings, warm timber floors and beautiful heritage tiles.

Furnished with antiques and plush beds with beautiful features such as the gorgeous Chinese screen in the room we viewed or an intricate mother-of-pearl inlayed opium bed in another, this top-notch boutique hotel is sure to provide a comfortable and relaxing stay with little extras that include Nespresso machines in every room (we hope they use recyclable pods), a minibar with complimentary drinks and treats and complimentary ironing for three items as well as what you’d expect at this price point: air-con, ceiling fan, flatscreen TV, DVD player, safe and bathrobes.

Lovely rooms.

All rooms provide double beds, but some can be spit to accommodate twin beds and although no extra beds are available, baby cots can be arranged. Ensuite bathrooms are small, but not cramped and are equipped with hot-water rain showers and lush organic fair-trade toiletries made with pure essential oils.

Avail yourself of the comforts in common libraries and lounge areas on each level or hang the embroidered do not disturb sign on the door and enjoy the moment in private.

An a la carte breakfast is served in their highly regarded Il Bacaro Italian Resturant, or if you have an early check-out, breakfast in bed can be arranged—nothing seems to be too much trouble for the delightful staff here.

The building doesn’t have a lift, but don’t worry about lugging your heavy bags up three flights, a rope elevator will haul them up to your floor (you’ll still have to walk though). If you’re looking for a swanky splash-out in Penang, Campbell House exudes elegance and refinement and makes a fine pick.

If you’re looking for a splash-out with a pool you can splash in, alternative luxury digs include The Edison or go all out with a colonial treat at the Eastern and Oriental.
