The Campbell House represents a new breed of heritage boutique hotel, offering luxury services that add real value to the experiences of each guest that comes through its doors. Though the building served as a hotel since the early 1900s, constant vacancy and disrepair had taken a toll until Nardya Wray and Roberto Dreon purchased it in 2008. The husband and wife team fully revamped and refurbished the historic building, opening it again as a hotel in 2011.
The concept behind the Campbell House, and its general ambiance, is truly a culmination of Roberto and Nardya’s unique heritage and passion for great food and hospitality. While the couple share a long background of luxury hospitality experience in London, the Campbell House’s prime Penang location is a testament to Nardya’s early childhood in Malaysia, and the hotel’s delicious Il Barco restaurant is a tribute to Roberto’s Italian birthplace.
Located in Georgetown, on Penang Island off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, The Campbell House brings a modern take to traditional themes of Penang Island and Georgetown. The hotel has just eleven suites, and each is individually decorated with an eclectic mix of elegant furnishings and other luxurious accents intended to highlight stunning views of Old Chinatown. The en suite bathrooms feature walk-in rain showers and colorful Peranakan tiles that add a touch of old-style charm. Guests can also lounge on the hotel’s rooftop terrace or enjoy the optimal proximity to Georgetown’s fascinating historical landmarks.
The Campbell House is a truly marvelous place to stay if looking for personalized care and superb service in Penang. On your next visit to Malaysia, make sure to check in to this one of a kind establishment.
