Positive Reviews

Near the National Park

Guests eager to explore the Mount Kinabalu National Park were delighted with the hotel's location. The park is situated just over a mile away from the hotel, and can be easily reached by car, or even on foot. Many travellers also found it convenient that several towns and villages with shopping, dining, and other tourist attractions can be found just a short drive away.

What A View

The major highlight of most guests' stay was their private balcony and the majestic views of Mount Kinabalu from their rooms. They loved waking up to the spectacular sight and enjoying the view in the evening.

Stay Connected

When you're staying a bit outside of civilisation, you appreciate the little modern necessities like the Internet even more. Guests found it very easy to stay connected during their travels thanks to the free Wi-Fi in the shared areas.

Negative Reviews

Not A Luxury Shower

Guests had a lot of complaints about the shower, from poor water pressure to the lack of how water. Apparently, it takes some time for the water to heat up so don't jump into the shower right away.

Needing Updates

Many rooms are old and in need of remodelling. Guests also thought that the room fixtures were poorly installed and not well-maintained. The worn carpets gave the hotel an even more run-down feel.

Poor Cleaning

Guests got the impression that the rooms were not regularly looked after or properly cleaned, as many surfaces, especially the outside areas, felt dusty and dirty.
