Positive Reviews

Peaceful and quiet

The peace and quietness that this hotel offers have been a delight for guests that stayed here. The natural surroundings offer nothing more than peaceful landscapes. Guests don't have to worry about being disturbed by noisy nightlife or busy roads, which can be an issue in Malaysia's big cities.

Convenient location

Guests have loved being so close to the Kinabalu Park entrance, as it is convenient not having to use transport to get to the park. The view this location offers has also been mentioned as something to remember. Guests certainly appreciated the beautiful surroundings more than they were expecting.

Value for money

Guests have been pleasantly surprised to find that this hotel offers more than they could have hoped for, making it great value for money. This makes it a wonderful choice in hotels if you are on a budget and looking for comfortable accommodation.

Negative Reviews

Can get cold in winter

The rooms on offer at this hotel do not come with air conditioning or heating. This can cause the interiors to become quite cold in winter, resulting in unpleasant temperatures at night. Guests mentioned that they were often quite cold and needed a lot of blankets to stay warm.

On-site facilities are lacking

Guests were disappointed to discover that some showers were cold, even after being advertised as hot showers. Other guests would also like to see an on-site breakfast being offered in the future.

Steep hills and many stairs

For guests who struggle with stairs and hills, this might become a problem when staying at this hotel. To get from the reception to some of the units, guests will need to climb a steep hill to their accommodation.
