    Told the receptionist at previous stay we need a higher floor with facing front room but when we arrived at 12;30 pm noon we were told only low level facing back room available. We decided to wait until others chk out to hve room facing front. Finally we get a room facing front but at lower 3rd flloor just above 2nd floor function room. Singing & noisy can heard until 11pm.

    New hotel but need own transportation”
    We arrived 10pm & given a room facing back at low level 3rd floor coz reception said full. Toilet was blocked & shower not work well; telephone line not properly connected & we ask for change of room. Finally they change us a room same floor but facing front which we request earlier. Although the room is full of smoking smell but better than toilet blocked.

    This is a relatively new hotel, hence clean and fresh looking. It’s worth what it cost. For the room I booked, many items come at additional fee, such as bottled water, tooth brush, towels and even bath mat.

    Came here for competition held in this hotel, very convinience as we saved traveling time. Kids love their pool, but the poolside floor very slippery as 2 kids fall, include my son who knocked his head. Hopefully the management can look into the issue.

    Pro : new hotel, new and nice room, clean, friendly staff, big and clean pool, spacious room, high tech door room, lots of parking spot. value for money Cons : little access to tv channel + not clear, super hot swimming pool (direct sun from morning to evening, hotel need to put on some big umbrella at the chair there), only two pillows for a king size bed (u need to add more). Overall, good place to stay and would recommend my friends to stay here.

    New Hotel with untrained staff”
    The front office staffs make me wait at the counter for check-in while she finish doing her work. I believed that front office staffs should greet and serve the customer first and not making them wait until the staff has completely finished her work. in addition, she paused to answer her friend's request and without getting permission or acknowledging customer, she continues to entertain her friend. This is unacceptable as she is suppose to finish serving the customer and she may continue doing whatever in the world that she needs to do. I told her off and she didn't even apologize. The hotel really need to train the staffs to be more hospitable. There are lots of universities in Malaysia offering short courses with acceptable price for hotelier. Please invest more on human resource/talent management. Thank you.

    Would return without a doubt”
    Being a new hotel, everything was still in pristine conditions. We had two rooms and both were in good conditions and our rooms had a good view of park behind the hotel. The rooms were spacious and the toilet/bath area had no issues. The pool, however, is a different story. I would rather see one that is better maintained. I would definitely stay here again during my next visit to Sandakan.

    Very very good standard hotel”
    When we arrived at the livingston we were amazed at the standard of the hotel compared to what we paid! Its a beautiful place the staff cant do enough for you the pool is lovely the rooms are very comfortable i would definately stay again if i were in sandakan, its a little far from the centre but grab is easy and cheap! The only little thing i would say is the a la carte menu doesnt have much on it and as we are both vegetarians there was no real meals for us. Breakfast on the other hand is good and its easy to just get a grab and go out for dinner. Overall great stay

    Really just slept there, but the service was excellent”
    I stayed at this hotel for four nights, but had such a demanding itinerary that I only really slept there. It was walking distance to a lot of restaurants and the main hub of town, but I was told my first like that it was extremely dangerous and that I was certain to be stabbed and robbed (eeek). I hope this was just a restaurateur trying to make some cab fare, but it did scare me a bit. The hotel was very clean and the staff were all first class and attentive. They stored my bag after I checked out for over 24 hours for free. The breakfast was really horrible, but the people in the restaurant were so nice I couldn't say anything. I didn't get to use the pool, but could see it from my balcony and it looked lovely. Both the pool and restaurant close kind of early (before 9pm). So, if you end up like me with a schedule that has you out early and back late, it'll be good to make alternative arrangements.

    Average ”
    Stayed in this hotel for many times due to the convenience of the location , and even though it is relatively new, I find that there is not much of an improvement in the staff. When I arrived, I am not greeted and have to get the attention of the reception on duty to check me in although there is no other customers. We only got 1 key card to a room when we requested for 2. We have 2 pax in 2 rooms that we have booked and 4 of us have different schedule. and go in and out at different times. The front desk say they will open the door for us if we need to access the room without another card. That is actually a scary thought. We checked in both rooms under my name and they do not have my other 3 companions details. Do they open our rooms to just anyone? and if my companion manage to get into the room without the card, how is he going to turn on the facilities? I have never seen a security personnel at the lobby the many times I stayed there. I suggest to look into this.

    Advantages - roadside, nearby a uptown with foods & entertainments, room is clean & well-kept. Disadvantages - toiletries of bath filled in shampoo container (caused misunderstood) & only gave upon request. Most disappointed was swimming pool is out of order which did not update when I called to the hotel to reassured my booking was received.
