Old hotel but good location”
The furnitures are old, no facilities like pool,gym,etc. Good view, facing the peak of mountain. Cafe not functioning well. Only 2 type of food for breakfast and no buffet. An old hotel, not refurbish, but still charge extension hour like a luxury hotel.
Place need upgraded old facilities,bad road with graval and potholes , dusty. Breakfast same choices every day, fried noodles, bake bean, chicken sausage , hard bolis egg, toast every day. One thing good is the view.
good place to stay”
nice place with view of kinabalu mount, everything was good, but a litte bit far from 'small town of kundasang' but they provide a good restaurant. road to go to resort still need improvment, you need to cross the village with unpaved roads are quite far up to 2km
Pro - Good staff - Mr Jeff?, forgot his name. Thank you so much for your understanding and concern. Cons - All the 3 rooms has mould. Change 3 times the room, atlast requestto change to the other branch. - limited food for both branch
Excellent mount kinabalu view from your bed... Friendly staffs...
Spectacular View! ”
This place is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful vacation. The view from Nabalu Wing Room was stunning. This place quite far from other attractions. The room smells old, but still fine. We can still sleep safe and sound.
The place is well worth it for the view, eventho it's a bit of the grid from other resorts ”
Pros - My Kinabalu Wing view is spectacular. Cons - Foods are so so... Staff - Very helpful
very nica place to stay... during staying.. theres a renovation.. in future will come again..”
In kinabalu wing.. maybe u can change the stairs from woods to cement.. so that feel tough.. coz people big like me not worry stay at first floor room... overall i give 5 stars... cant wait to stay next holiday...
The location of the resort is far from the main attractions but it is still ok. However, the road towards the resort was awful that i think the management should do some upgrading to the road. it is not even tarred. The unit that we stayed, like there wasn't cleaning done, as there were clothes hanging in the wardrobe, drinking bottles provided were already opened, no sweeping done. We booked it for 2 nights, and decided to only stayed for 1 night.
The view is superb”
It's my first time to stay in Celyn Resort and I love it. The room is clean and big. Toilet is clean and up to expectation. The best part is the view of Mount Kinabalu is to die for. However there are so many wild dogs and am not sure whether it is safe to bring kids here if we were to repeat.
Road is bad!”
Everything here is excellent, the view, the staff, free breakfast all is excellent.. Except the road.. OMG! Please do something about the road.. It took time to arrived this place because of the road is not an asphalt..
The resort sit on a hill and away from town centre. The road up is a little bumpy, not a big deal at all. We stayed 2 nights at Kinabalu Wing. The room is spacious enough for the 4 of us. The highlight of the stay, we woke up to an amazing view of the Mt.Kinabalu. Enjoy the view and the weather so much. The air feels so refreshing, peaceful. The aminities, statifying. The resort should provide bath mat though. Breakfast are good enough for what we pay. Overall, pleasant stay.
Loved it! ”
Well, this resort was located uphill appx 3 km from pekan kundasang. The view was stunning from my room(kinabalu wing). Very quiet and cold. Ready to sleep with your jacket. Free breakfast, but not a buffet style. The cafe close by 9.30pm, and don't expect more from the menu. It is better to buy meals from the market at Kundasang, much more cheaper and variety. Don't worry too much when they mentioned about the road, even a compact car like Axia can go thru it. Seriously, it is worth it for stargazing and the view.
On top of a hill and higher than expected. The morning view was stunning. Could see mountains due to the clear weather. Breakfast was good. Room was rather ok and has to be improved. Overall stay was worth it.
A trip to Kundasang”
This hotel is located at the hill side, so the roads are not in that good condition, but perfect location as is so cold and very quiet. Roughly you 5km plus to drive up to his hotel from the main road. The only problem is there is no nearby amenities available, so you need to drive down to Kundasang or Ranau town to get food or anything. I would recommend this hotel to all kind of travelers.
Great food. Big portion and quality cook. ”
We were very lucky to have a very good morning view of mount Kinabalu. Mountain scenery are simply breathtaking. Can’t expect more if you want to experience morning view of kinabalu. Food were great too!
Lack of facilities & cleanliness”
We took kinabalu wing and the view was stunning. Our room was at the 2nd floor, no assistance to carry up our luggages hence we need to carry them ourselves. Need a lot of improvements in terms of exterior and interior room cleanliness. I believe when the hotel is upgraded, there will be more revenue. Toilet has not been furnish since my last visit there. It is best if you have a heater during cold season for better facilitation for the guest. Hope to see more improvements.
No pain , no gain”
Went to this hotel for my honeymoon . The view is excellent and superb . We booked Kinabalu wing and from our room (actually bed) , we can see Mount Kinabalu clearly . The room is okay and nothing special about it . Dont expect much like any other 3 stars and above hotel . They do provide basic amenities like hair dryer , kettle ,toothbrush and etc . They even provide extra single bed if you have extra guest or you want to sleep at the balcony . There is no aircond as the weather already so cold . The reception will close from 12am till 7am but you can call the provided number if you need assistance . The food at cafe is lousy . So we opt for pack food on our second night . There are few dogs at the hotel compound . We made friends with the one of the dogs and fed it with dog can food . The road to this hotel will take you around 15- 20 minutes on 3km++ gravel road . Axia car that we rent survived (phew). The water heater only works for 15 minutes roughly . After that we can cold water
