Wil House (GPS: 5.420376, 100.333077) is a small guest house in George Town, Penang. It occupies two adjoining townhouses on Leith Street, just next to Oriental Hotel. The proprietor is a young man named Wilson Loo. He purchased the property in 2012 and decided to turn it into a guesthouse, which he named after himself.

I visited Wil House on 10 March 2015 and was given a tour of the premises. The guesthouse has only four rooms. They are the Deluxe Suite, Family Suite, Family Loft and Single Room. Except for the small single room, the other three rooms are very big and spacious.
The flooring is terracotta tiles on the ground floor and wooden flooring for the upstairs guest rooms. The first floor landing has a corridor with beautiful pattern tiles on the floor, and a skirting of colourful tiles just below the dado rail.

Family Suite, Wil House
The "Family Suite" is on the ground floor. It has a master bed as well as two single beds. Therefore it can sleep a family of four comfortably. There is a large bathroom attached. A flight of wooden staircase connects this room with the Family Loft upstairs. It is unlocked if guests book both the Family Suite and Family Loft together.

Deluxe Suite, Wil House
The "Deluxe Suite" is a very large room with windows on two sizes and a four-poster bed as the centrepiece. As we entered the suite, I noticed that to one side is a cabinet with antiques and curios. This is part of Wilson's growing collection. For security purposes, the cabinet is locked.

Bathrooms at Wil House
I find that all the bathrooms are quite large and nicely done up. The floor tiles remind me of the bathrooms at E & O.
