Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Come Home to Historic Splendour 'One of 10 Greatest Mansions In The World' - Lonely Planet 2011. A grand mansion conceived and constructed by a Grand Man; an eminent edifice which history calls home; a peerless representation of the Paradigm Chinese Courtyard House – the Cheong Fatt Tze “Blue” Mansion has been perfectly poised for over a century on firm foundations of architectural, cultural and historic superlatives. Essentially an ‘heirloom with rooms’, today, the Mansion readily bequeaths its charms to visitors who are able to indulge in exclusive heritage stays, guided tours; and beautifully tailored events on its premises. The favourite home of the “Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China”, the Mansion is undoubtedly also the favourite home of George Town.

Do they have rooms with 2 single beds? Does a room for one person cost the same as a room for 2
When you do your booking, you have choice of two single or a double bed, I believe per room rate is for two person rate or you pay the single person extra charge.

"We loved our room, called The Old Kitchen."
"We stayed at "Towkay" which was a quiet room."
"I would stay away from the front of the hotel."
"Ask for a quiet room as the food hall next door can be noisy. Maybe something for Penang Heritage to sort out."
"Loved the pool companion basket"
