"The resort is 5minutes drive from the Desa Cattle Farm and 15minutes from the Kinabalu National Park which are our main destination for this trip. The least we are expecting is a room full of flies. We couldnt even open up our balcony door in the morning which is s big dissapointment as we were there to enjoy the cold weather. The restaurant menu has a lot to choose from but the price is on the high side. We decided not to drive out for meals so we dine in most of the time. Food portion was little even for young kids. There is a jacuzzi in the room but there isnt enough hot water to fill. In the end, we gave up using it. The pathway lead to our room is not roof-covered. It was raining heavily when we were there and we were all soaking wet. So bring your own umbrella!"

"Pros - Great location. It’s on highway, and very close to both Kundansang town and Kinabalu National Park. - Clean, spacious rooms, equipped with table fans. - Basic amenities like drinking water, towel, hot shower are available. - They sell fresh strawberry jam and other items, that are made from produce of their own farm. We tried the strawberry ice cream and it was super yummy! - The evening views from the balcony are majestic! Cons - The floor was tilted towards one side - The shower area is very cramped and the only way to practically use it is to stand under it sideways. - There’s no breakfast provided here. But there are small local eateries nearby, that are open early in the morning."

"A nice and quiet place to relax if you love natures environment. As the Chalet is 1500+ above sea-level, be prepared to enjoy cooling weather. During our stay, the temperature was between 12 to 18 degrees centigrade. Room is clean and proper. The staff were friendly and approachable. For easy access to the hotel, highly recommended to have or rent motor vehicles. The Chalet does not cater any food, so pls prepare your own food; either cook your own or go to the nearest stall which is about 300 M located at the entrance of Kinabalu National Park."

"Have all time hot shower. Quiet place. Clean toilet. Fresh bedsheets. Friendly & helpful staff. Picturesque view / background (mount kinabalu). Worth for money. The access to the resort quite thrilling. However when you reached there, it is worth. We’ve been told that they in the midst upgrading the access. Lovely. We will going back there if we plan to go there next time. Highly recommended for those who love nature. Not for luxury travelers."

"The room in the main building was very clean and well dimentioned, however a bit outdated as was the bathroom. While the common areas of the hotel are newly refurbished and the surrounding gardens meticulously maintained, the hotel rooms would need some TLC. Unfortunately, the hotel's location as indicated on the Agoda map is incorrect. The hotel actually is ca 5 km from the Mt. Kinabalu National Park entrance in Kundasan, i.e., ca. 22 km away from Ranau and ca 40 km from Poring Hot Springs. Cabs to Poring or to the National Park are rather expensive. "

"The hotel is NOT near to Kinabalu National Park Headquarters. It is at least 30-40 minutes drive away, towards Ranau, half of which is on a hilly, slightly potholed gravel track. This is well signposted, so no chance of missing it, but may daunt many travellers and is not near restaurants or shops. However, after pointing out that the website falsely promised a hotel near Kinabalu HQ, we were pleased that the staff upgraded our room from Valley View (great views) to Kinabalu View (truly amazing views of the mountain from atop the ridget the hotel is based on). The room was very high quality, very clean, had good facilities, and made the best of the view with floor to ceiling windows. We didn't try the free breakfast or slightly expensive restaurant, so can't comment on those. Overall, we were very glad with our choice and would happily stay there again, if we had transport!"

"The Kinabalu Pine Resort is located in a great location maybe 4 miles from the Mt. Kinabalu National Park, Malaysia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also, maybe 1 mile away is a large fruit and vegetable market and a small village for grocery shopping. Near the village on small hill is a memorial dedication for the Australian, New Zealand soldiers and local Malay's who died fighting an overwhelming Japanese Army in WWII. Nearby in the town of Renau is another memorial that marks the spot of the Japanese prison for Australian, New Zealand soldiers and Malay's. From this site the forced POW Death March began. A very small white sign from the road points to the site. At the resort there's a very nice view of Mt. Kinabalu from a platform close to the reception office and to the right-side of the small parking area up a short incline. Make a left turn after the reception office. Parking in front of the reception office and restaurant is not allowed. However, management does not enforce it. So, it's hard to drive pass parked Vans and Suv's that ignore the no parking sign. It's a problem management must fix. Check-in and check-out was very good. If you ask the reception folks to make a local telephone call to check on times for nearby attraction sites for the time they open and close - you'll be asked for 60-cents Ringitts per call. Not good for a Resort to charge a fee. It's another way for the Kinabalu Pine Resort to make money that we refer to in the USA as "nickel and diming." The restaurant menu is very good. Food is good and food inexpensive. No beer in the restaurant is served. It's served downstairs below the restaurant and it's very pricey. Breakfast included in the cost of the room is very good. Back-packers and guests bring their luggage inside the restaurant in the morning. Not good because tables are set up too close to each other. Folks going back and forth to the buffet breakfast were tripping on the luggage. Management should require"
