Generally ok - rooms a bit dated

This is a nice hotel brilliantly located just out of town. Clean pool which was spotlessly maintained. Other public facilities and rooms whilst all adequate are 1980s in style and feel and need refurbishing. Staff all very pleasant and helpful which is generally the norm in Malaysia. Good value for money.

Just out of the dirty town

We have stayed here many times. The staff are always welcoming. The rooms are of a very good standard. The breakfast is also very good. The pool is always sparkling clean. Here is a nice place to relax. Please note anybody Sandakan town is not a very clean place. We however do not go out at night!!!

Rauhallinen hotelli lähellä keskustaa

Hotellin sijainti näyttäisi olevan kaukana mutta silti kaupunkiin pääsee helposti kävelemällä tai taksilla. Palvelu on hyvin ystävällistä ja huoneet siistit. Uima-allas alue on mukava paikka ja hotellissa on myös 2 ravintolaa. Liikenteen äänet ei kantaudu huoneisiin eli nukkuminen on rauhallista. Aamiainen on hyvin monipuolinen ja runsas.
