I had dropped by for the 2pm tour during my visit to Penang last week. Our guide Christina made experience a pleasant one. She was engaging and lively, which uplifted our moods amidst the sweltering heat. Appreciated how she added a personal touch as well with her anecdotes and sharing of her research. Great job by the team who worked...

A trip away for the weekend from Singapore for a birthday. You feel like you've hit the jackpot when you arrive when you get shown around the hotel and you see your room. Unfortunately there is a hidden secret under the surface all the staff are clearly well aware of but don't say anything about - THE MUSIC NEXT DOOR....

Dear WillpapNZ, We truly regret that you were somewhat put off by the merrymaking from the food court next door despite our having installed sound-proofing at the windows and the ante-room. However we are in the midst of a living World Heritage city and we have to live with the community around us. We hope that the other half of...

Interesting architecture in this sympathetically restored heritage hotel with interesting history as a home prior to conversion to a very comfortable hotel. Has been used as a film set due to authentic exterior, Lots of information available

Over the recent Easter long weekend, we decided to take a break in Penang. We picked the Blue Mansion, indigo blue coloured heritage hotel with only 18 rooms after learning about its history and seen some pictures. From the outside, the heritage hotel is hidden behind a high wall so only the roof and part of the building were visible...

The Blue Mansion has been restored beautifully and it felt like a privilege to stay there. The rooms were beautiful, I slept in an adjoining room to my daughters which worked out perfectly. The little extras were thoughtful and enhanced the experience. Breakfast was fabulous. The staff were warm friendly and helpful, and their knowledge of Georgetown very useful. Would...

Introduction: My third stay in this beautifully restored heritage home better known as the "Blue Mansion". Our Family occupied 5 rooms in the Liang Collection, and it's just a pleasure to stay here "it's home away from home". Convenient location in George Town and close to everything and highly recommended. The new pool is a joy and delight to relax...

Beautifully preserved, the Blue Mansion is a quaint, pretty, tranquil space. We came during the week for a set lunch. At 65+ ringit, it's amazing value for a three course lunch with coffee. The dishes are beautifully presented and medium sized portions. The beef rendang was the highlight. We were full but not stuffed. Service was friendly and attentive. It...

This was the second time at CFTM. The last was 15 years ago, and it was a much smaller operation (I don't believe the backyard and pool were in operation back then and it had fewer staff), but it has lost none of its charm. The house itself is absolutely magical, a perfectly restored and preserved piece of Penang history,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night holiday stay at the Blue Mansion. The place is just beautiful and steeped in history. Our 'Scholar' room was spacious and secluded although the food court noise from next door is very loud at night. Earplugs provided by the hotel fixed it to some extent, but book a room on the other side if...

“All rooms are unique on it's own and no two are the same but rooms on the west wing are quiter.”

“All rooms are excellent. If you have children ground floor is recommendable.”
Jumela, 15 Apr 2017 | Read review
“My room was on the supposed "loud side" but it didn't bother me. I could hear the karaoke but it ended around 11pm and with the bathroom door shut it really wasn't too intrusive; It didn't disturb my sleep. One night the internet went down but the staff gave me a little gadget to borrow for individual internet access which solved the problem, immediately. ”
