good place with the best location
The hotel location are surrounded by restaurant, mini market and gaya market. By walking around 5-10 minutes we can reach seafood restaurant along the jetty.

Only a quick stop over but.....
Although its relatively new, the Horizon is already looking a bit shabby, but the beds are comfy so if its only for a stop whilst you are busy doing other things then the hotel is fine. Location is good - convenient for town, food, shops etc We had an early start as this was a stop over only, so the hotel thoughtfully prepared packed breakfasts which were ok (croissant, 2 jam Danish pasties, and apple and bottle water), but the taxi they ordered didn't show, but as with most things in Sabah, there is an easy solution and a helpful tour van took us to the airport instead. Try, if you can, to avoid the rooms by the lifts - ours had a fair bit of noise as people were chatting loudly getting out of lifts. Overall, met our expectations.

Excellent stay - great value
We stayed at the Horizon hotel for a number of nights as it made a great base to explore Sabah and overall the stay was excellent. Location - the hotel is based right in the middle of the town so it's easy to walk to markets or restaurants in the evening. Facilities - The hotel has a huge gym and a nice swimming pools. The rooms are finished to a great standard and even the basic rooms are great. Services - the hotel has two restaurants serving great food and reasonable prices. (After failing to find somewhere good to eat in the town we just ate here). There is also a tour operator on sight to book your tours and all at suprisingly competetive prices. Overall we had a great stay and to top it all off the hotel is extremely good value for money! The wifi is also very good.

Okay but not great.
Great location and rooms are spacious. Food is good and staff friendly and helpful. For the bad points rooms are oldish, air con was very little in both rooms I had. Bathtub I had in the second room was not functioning. It will deserve a full refreshment but for 100 bucks I guess this is ok.

Good value for money
Great beautiful spacious rooms. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We wished three was more space by the swimming pool as very limited and was full. The breakfast is nice and varied, location is great!

Booked King Size bed room got single bed room
The king size bed was fully booked. They offered me only the king size bed room the following night (smoking floor) The air con for the king size bed room took "forever" to cool the room down.
