          Swimming Pool is Under Maintenance”
          The main reason we’re staying there because their swimming pool: there are only 2 hotels in Sandakan city have the pool. Hmm.. The lobby location is a litlte bit confusing. And we did not get a tv remote and toilet mat (small towel). The food is very nice, they even have chicken curry on breakfast, so what’s so special about it, our bad first impression make us think probably the food is nahhh.. The hotel itself out of traffic compare the other famous hotel in city centre. Overall “okay lah”, not bad, we love it. Thank You!!!

          The hotel is really run down. The air conditioning is bad. A lot of ants within the room. The water heater is unstable. Sometime the water can be very hot but sometime it can be not so hot. Anyway, the water pressure is good. The swimming pool is under long term repair. The breakfast have limited selection. The taste is acceptable. The only plus point for the hotel is the staff. They are friendly, helpful and always with smile on their face.

          This is my second stay at this hotel and there is no hot water. Previous stay, they off the hot water supply due to less residence at your hotel. I had to wait till maintenance on the main heater switch but this stay was much worse. Staff can say maintenance not on duty and front desk could not help to provide hot water. Very poor PR and service

          Pro: 1. the room is as shown in the picture, and is way bigger than you think it is!! my twin bed room is about the size of family room in other hotels. 2. the room and bed is comfortable 3. free breakfast, although it takes very long time to serve. Con: 1. water heater not powerful at all, the so called hot water is merely cold water that is not freezing. 2. lack of maintenance, more than one lamp in the room are broken and the sliding door of bathroom also hard to push 3. the toilet seat is not cleaned properly, u can see water stain and mold on it 4. location quite bad, basically far from everything you need, and near to some kind of construction site or abandoned building whatsoever.

          Room is spacious but the queen bed is too small for us. They have a small pool but it is a bit dirty since there are no strict regulation about swim wear. Breakfast is fair with limited choice of food but the taste is superb. I enjoy in house dinner also. Great taste with good price tag.
