          I were travelling with an elderly n kids from Tawau by car. This is my second time to stay in this hotel. Very convinient as you may park your car just nearby n even stay ground floor. Staff were very helpful. Front desk very efficient. Worth every penny spent n definitely will stay again. Thanks.

          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!!!

          I felt cheated and that's for sure. ”
          Looking at the earlier reviews about this hotel seems quite positive with some impressive photos. But upon arrival it's a whole different scenario. I thought I was checking in a nice resort hotel but it turn out I was checking in to a hostel. TV is not working and I missed out on my daily dose of news. I expected my daily swim routine but unfortunately the swimming pool was under maintenance and it was never announced during my booking to this hotel. The whole vicinity of this resort hotel was not well maintained and the weed are growing around two feet tall. It gave an eerie feeling just to be at the hotel. Car parking area was not well lit. Some part of the parking area are total darkness due to no attention to safety and maintenance of the property. Weekend breakfast was good with much choices of foods. However, weekdays breakfast is only optional to their set breakfast menu. The interns are not properly trained by the person in charge and resulted unnecessary awkward moment.

          Basic & simple hotel”
          Easy access, no hassle and reasonable rates
          The hotel is easy to access because of its location beside the main road to Sandakan town. The first thing that you notice when entering this hotel is the kitchen which can be view because of the glass type wall. Later we found out that this hotel is also a training college for those students after high school. We have nothing much to complaint as most of the time we only came back was late in the evening after our trip around Sandakan and surrounding areas.

          This is a nice hotel, new with nice big rooms. However I never had any hot water even after maintenance said they fixed it and the Internet did not work anywhere in the hotel which was a huge issue as I needed to book flights and hotels I booked for a sale price which I found was decent value. However if the original price was requested another hotel would be of better value such as the best western down the road

          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.
