10/10 Exceptional

Good location for nature activities
This hotel is in a great location for exploring the surrounding attractions. Just a few minutes walk from the orangutan and sun bear sanctuaries, and even closer to the rainforest centre. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfast food was great, the dinner food was average. The nearby restaurants are overpriced and food is sub-par (except the one in the Rainforest Centre which I found to be really good). But you can order Grab delivery to the hotel so many options are available.

Very much would recommend
Great experience. The staff were very kind and attentive. The property is simple but clean and well maintained. You can tell they take pride in ensuring their guests are happy and their property is presentable. Meals at the restaurant were very good and affordable.

2/10 Poor

So Very Disappointed
After a lot of research we decided to stay here for 1nt on our travels around Borneo. ..Superb 9.0 was its rating. Let me assure you this accommodation is far cry from what was promised!! On arrival we had to drag our luggage up a huge steep stairway with no assistance. The place was characterless, the adjoining shop was closed, the restaurant was closed just a very desperate looking place, but hey-ho 'only for 1nt'. Checked in and shown to our room which again was another great slog of uneven steps. When we got to the room I could not believe what we were confronted with..the place was a building site immediately outside our room...please look at my photos.. unbelievable!! We checked out and sought another hotel. Receptionist agreed room wasn't acceptable and would authorise a refund which we will have to acquire through which is the biggest disappointment of all, as it has taken 3months of calls and all they are willing to do is offer a voucher.. so no refund even though it was not fit for purpose. We found alternative accommodation at Sepilok Forest Edge and it was superb.

10/10 Exceptional

We arrived here after spending some time in kinabatangan river. We decided to book for two nights: Day 1: We checked out the sunbear rehabilitation center. Day 2: We dedicated the whole day checking out the orangtuan sancturary. Both locations are 10 minute walk from the hotel. The road doesn't have side walks but its a nicely paved road and the drivers are safe and go slow for pedestrias. The hotel is also next door to the discovery rainforest park, we didnlt check it out but we been told is awesome and includes suspension bridges. That being said the hotel is located in a convinient location. They have a resturant on premise, another resturant/cafe across the street and a very photogenic resturant by the orangutan sancturary called lake bistro or on the lake, recomment going there for a drink or lunch. All in all you can easily spend two or 3 nights here and not feel rushed. The rooms are very clean and beds are very comfortable. The customer service is superb and I highly recommend this hotel. It is also 20 min from Sandakan airport and you can easily hire a car with the grab app with. Is cheaper then arranging transportation via taxi or through the hotel.
