Travellers' Choice
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.

We had the most incredible stay at Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. From the moment we walked in, we knew that it would be special. The staff that work here provided some of the best customer service I have received in a hotel. The staff member who greeted us at reception was an absolute treasure, she made check in a breeze and enjoyable. She was happy and personable and is fantastic at her job. She took us to our room and made sure we knew where everything was and could not do enough for us. She is an asset to The Blue Mansion. The security guard on the front gate is a very lovely man, nothing was too much trouble and he helped us out on a number of occasions during our stay. The room was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful - complete with claw foot bath. Everything was clean and I could not find any fault in our room. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was fantastic. We highly recommend the roti canai - the curry is delicious! The mansion itself is spectacular. The courtyard and bar are the highlight. Everywhere you look there is a piece of history. You all should be extremely proud of what you have created at Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. It is warm, inviting and a home away from home. We had the best stay and we will definitely return!

This will be my first choice back to the Penang as I love the surroundings of the mansion. Considering the historical background, I felt that I have taken a little history home The breakfast area was lovely, The Ming room that leads to the garden and pool was well thought. Aircon was working very well. I like the bar with the beautiful colours. However, I was disappointed with the warmness at the reception upon checking in. Could have been better considering this is an award winning 2021 Global Luxury Heritage Hotel. Overall, it was a GREAT STAY! Ps. Great to be served bottle water rather than plastic bottles.

Cheong Fatt Tze - The Blue Mansion was a treat that we gave ourselves after not being able to travel for such a long time. And we loved it! The building itself and all the decorations are lovely - we've never had such a view while we've had breakfast. The staff are very helpful - especially as we needed to get covid tests to go back to Sabah (although they won't be needed after Dec 1).

We stayed for 2 nights at the blue mansion. We felt that overall our experience was rather strange and we didn't feel particularly welcome. Staff weren't friendly or accomodating and we had to climb across a rope to get to our room each time we went to or from the room ( with luggage) because it was cordoned off for tour visitors, which to be honest seemed to be who the hotel was geared up for, rather than the paying guests. Breakfast was an ordeal as a vegetarian/vegan and was only fully available on day 2. We wanted a drink at 9:30pm but were told the bar was closed. Despite the hotel being as beautiful as all the other reviews say, I'd rather pay a bit more and stay somewhere amazing like the 7 terraces or pay less and stay at the Yen Keng where the service is fantastic and you aren't made to feel unwelcome at all and are greeted with a smile. This was meant to be a special birthday treat and we have come away feeling quite disappointed.

Dear viraminseazoe, We are so sorry to hear that you feel this way about your stay with us. We try and ensure that tour guests do not wander into the guest wings for the privacy of our hotel guests - which is why entry to your wing was cordoned off, we apologise if you found this inconvenient. There was an oversight with regards to your vegan breakfast the first day, for which we apologise, and we had hoped to make it up to you with the special breakfast served on Day 2. Please know that we take your feedback seriously and that we are working to making sure that ALL our guests come away with a positive experience when staying with us at The Blue Mansion. We hope you will give us another chance to win your affection sometime in the future. The Blue Mansion Team

We stayed two nights at the Blue Mansion in Georgetown and enjoyed it very much. The history of the building and its original owner is easy to find on the hotel's website, so I won't dwell on it here. In the present day, the staff are welcoming, friendly, helpful and efficient. The food - breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner - was plentiful and delicious, with highlights being dinner at Indigo (especially the melt in the mouth tenderloin) and the yuzu chocolate truffles served as part of afternoon tea. Our room was spacious and airy I found myself channelling my hitherto undiscovered inner photographer, though to be honest, it's virtually impossible to take a bad photo there. Every courtyard, nook and cranny seems to say, "Don't I look interesting? Why not take a photo?" We shall stay here again.
