We had a great time during our stay at this hotel. The location is very convenient as it's close to all the bars, cafes, and even the morning market, which can be easily reached on foot. The hotel itself is clean and has a unique atmosphere. The staff were amiable and welcoming. During our check-in, the owner asked about our plans and provided us with recommendations for places to visit, which was a nice touch. I enjoyed their welcome drink and bought the nutmeg juice from the morning market to take back with me.

Campbell house was beautiful. Beautifully restored with a charming interior. Location was great and the staff and owners were extremely kind and helpful. They bent over backwards to accommodate whatever request we had. Would definitely stay there again.
