        Value for money but very poor internet connection”

        this is my 4th time stay in this hotel. Each time my stay i never get a good internet connection ( even during not a busy weekend) Also the check out , you need to wait as the counter need to wait for the cleaner to check the room otherwise, tv channels quite variable. room and bathroom are clean. one more thing, the buffet for 'berbuka puasa' is not as excellent as it was before when i 1st came way back in 2016. On that day, it was full house (election day), lots of dishes finished very fast and it takes quite some time for them to top-up and the seafood a bit smelly (fried squid).

        A hotel that is charming and quiet - we should give a "thumb up" for Sabah Hotel - a hotel with history and old memory for many of the local Sandakan people. This is a land mark for tourist and locals A warm and comfortable place, staff are friendly and helpful - keep up with the good work and :-)

        expecting a run down old hotel but i was totally wrong. the hotel has refurnished their rooms. clean neat spacious room with bathtub and separate shower. the breakfast were great with a lot of menu to choose. the pool is great and the slide and waterfall was amazing. me wife and the kids had a great time. would certainly come again next time. a bit of improvement on the WIFI connection would make it a perfect experience.

        We had a large room with a balcony. The bathroom was large and clean. The hotel is not in the"downtown " area but it's easy to get a Grab taxi and drive there. The drive to downtown is about 5-10 minutes and costs less than $2. My kids truly enjoyed the slide in the swimming pool. The swimming pool area is beautiful. We would totally stay here again.

        A touch of comfort after he jungle!”

        Stayed here two nights before and after jungle trek. Breakfast was amazing, plentiful with quite an array of food with eggs cooked to order. Just a small niggle, Plug sockets too near bedside tables which made charging cables difficult to attach. Also window shutters off rails. . Room service very good, ordered food in room, very enjoyable and good value for money. Comfortable bed, A/C and a welcomed bath.

        A worn out and tiring looking hotel..”

        One of the most overrated hotel in Sandakan thus far, seems like this hotel is living in the past glory unfortunately it has failed in many aspects in terms of cleanliness, service quality and hotel facilities. The carpets in the rooms felt stuffy as it looked like it has not been changed for for decades. Shower head was rusty and it was shocking to see the light bulb in the shower room was not working. The housekeeping staff was rude and discourteous. Sorry to say this was one of our worse staying experience in Sandakan as this hotel in general.

        This hotel is located a bit far from town centre but should not be a problem if you have your own transportation. Even though considered old but equipped with modern facilities & stunning forest garden scenery. From here you can go to the town centre for window shopping at Four Points Hotel building. Please don't miss a chance to try "ikan bakar " (grilled fish) for your lunch & dinner at pasar sim-sim or IJM shops during your stay in Sandakan.

        Among the best in Sandakan”

        Worth the price. Room is spacious but furniture us aging. Breakfast is fair. Swimming pool is good but be cautious of the coarse floor at the pool entry. The lounge bistro is good with variety of pastries and cakes. They give you 15% discount if you take away after 5pm. They also provide massage service at the gym. While my kid enjoyed kiddie pool, i indulge myself with a good massage.

        Large room with everything needed. Bed a bit on the hard side for me. Nice pool and surroundings but rather spoilt for 2 days as a large group of school children were staying there. The atmosphere of a relaxing resort became more of a school holiday camp! Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is fine. Overall a decent price for the facilities offered.

        Great old hotel. It shows its age but facilities are generally clean, nice swimming pool and great staff. Location is bit remote but still ok - 1km walk to the waterfront but it was handy for the Heritage trial. There are lots jungle around so such setting is very nice during the day.Take taxis at night.
