Great hotel”

Stayed here for 2 nights and couldn’t fault the hotel location is right on the waterfront, which had a few good places to eat. The hotel it’s self had a good restaurant which had several areas including a roof top terrace and a a boardwalk area on the sea front it’s also opposite a large mall, the hotel had a quirky movie theme in the dinning areas and also had a gym which was a bonus as we wasn’t aware, the owner/manager was very friendly and helpful telling us about the islands and the history of Sandakan and he was very passionate about the hotel The room was more than adequate and was cleaned every day, it’s a big hotel which is not our normal choice but was so glad we booked it

Clean and really great staff! Strategic location.”

Checking in was smooth. I booked 3 rooms and requested to upgrade 2 rooms to have sea view. They were accommodating and professional and friendly. Add the RM 20 per night per room. Nice view to wake up to. I didn't have breakfast as I had to leave early. Nicely decorated hotel. Low season, but when I was waiting for Grab, they had those arcade games like Metal Slug etc., so it was really nice addition in their lobby. They also allowed you to take their bicycle for 30mins with baby seat to cycle around the short wharf or walkway and the main square beside the Sandakan Mall. And I had dinner at Sim Sim and could not find a Grab driver, called the hotel, the receptionist lady managed to order through Maxim and got a driver to come pick my party up. It was really fortunate else I would be stranded at Sim Sim. Great customer service! I stayed 1 Dec. And their boardwalk had place for you to drink and eat with a view of the sea. Some food trucks stands but I didn't try them. In short, everything is within walking distance.

Easy access and super friendly staff”

It was a great 3d2n stay. Our room is mainly for sleep, shower & rest. Fit the purpose. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Room service (for requested items) responded promptly. We managed to get an early check-in (requested during booking). The room size is just nice. Enough space for a prayer mat. The bedsheet and linen are clean. No musty smell in the room. The toilet is ok. However, the water pressure in the shower is quite slow. Will be better if the pressure is much better. The hot & cold defined itself. The location is in the middle of town. Easy access to eateries (just opposite the mall and business centre) and walking distance to some attractions (Heritage walk, mural art, waterfront) Overall, it was a pleasant stay. Will definitely stay here again for my next visit.

Good choice”

Very affordable to stay here. Breakfast included. I'm enjoying stay here. Room was cleaned. Buy room with sea view with king bed. The upsidedown was there's a connecting door to the next room. It was locked but we can hear noise from the other room. So it's not privacy 🥺. Not sure if all the room had the connecting door or not. Not advisable to go here with your own car. It's was always jammed & hectic town, no available parking during the day. We had to go around for about 3-4 times only then we finally got a parking space nearby. Thank God!! Hmmm, about the noise for construction during the day and karaoke during night (because there's always had people gathered at night outside the hotel), I don't really bother for it. 🤭
