Penang weekend…
Beautiful heritage building, museum and hotel. Wonderful experience, peaceful, interesting and unique. Weekend evenings there is traditional music in the courtyard and upstairs an in house restaurant. A small pool and garden at the property. Staff were very friendly and super helpful. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is central, good for food, shopping and sightseeing. Very recommended, we would stay again.

4/10 Fair

Arrogantly relying on fame/reputation of property
This property is impressive. It’s an architectural gem! The accessible areas for the paid guests are tranquil, although clearly marked for guests only they are easily accessed by non guests as witnessed during our stay. lYou can’t doubt the aesthetics, cleanliness and integrity of The Blue Mansion. Now, the problem lies with the staff. Check in. We felt like it was an inconvenience, there wasn’t any personalised welcome to this boutique hotel, eg where are you from, have you been to Penang before? however we were welcomed with a nutmeg juice and then a tour of and introduction to the quirks of them room. We had breakfast included. Then

The Mansion is a very unique structure and it was fun staying in a beautiful piece of history. The staff were nice and there is a really cute cat that lives on the premises. I liked the tour talking about the mansion and the traditional live music played on Friday and Saturday nights. Breakfast buffet is not huge, but tasty. Nice touches include complimentary kueh in the afternoons and free minibar drinks (non alcoholic). The pool is small but adequate. I think they should provide an option to not change towels to save water (be more eco friendly). Also, I would suggest providing some kids menu items at the restaurants.

We stayed at the Tjiong townhouse associated with The Blue Mansion. It was a large and lovely unique space for our family. It was a comfortable haven from the hustle and bustle of the city outside. The complementary breakfast at The Blue Mansion was always delicious. The tour is a MUST....very well done! I can't speak highly enough about the staff at The Blue Mansion. Daniel, in particular, took great care of us. When our son left his sunglasses behind, Daniel located the sunglasses and mailed it to us at our next destination, and followed up with us until we received the package. I would highly recommend The Blue Mansion and its associated townhouses.

8/10 Very good

Baby elephant in the room above!
Our third booking for Blue Mansion Cheong Fatt Tze via this year. Always good to experience stay with Blue Mansion. This time though the experience was a bit unusual as there was a baby elephant staying in the room above us. Loud footsteps, thudding across the floor above especially at night, late into the night. Eerie since we were not sure if there were hotel guests upstairs! Fits well with the unique atmosphere and decor in the Blue Mansion. The rooms and common areas at this hotel are really old, with historical heritage. So, you either really love it, or not at all if you’re not interested in Chinese antique furnishings and decor. Check-in process was fast and efficient. Good breakfast menu selection and service at breakfast was very good. Housekeeping needs to be more generous with replenishing soaps and toiletries. Beautiful small garden by the pool but unfortunately the swimming pool is more like a giant size bathtub. Cafe and high end restaurant at the hotel is fairly pricey, but there are many good eateries, bars and cafes near to the hotel which is centrally located. Would definitely recommend the Blue Mansion for an interesting and unique hotel experience. I had made two separate bookings via this trip, first booking on 20-23 June, and a second booking on 23-24 June. Next time I may have to book directly with the hotel since did not credit me with the lovaltv stamps for mv stav on 20-23 June 2022.
