Positive Reviews

Decent value hotel

Guests choose this hotel more often than not for the reasonable value it offers due to its location well outside the business and touristic areas of Kuching.

Copious breakfast

The buffet breakfasts are a big hit with travellers who appreciate the quality and choice of food.

Comfortable rooms

The bedrooms are cosy and comfortable and quite roomy. Guests also find them to be well cleaned and kept neat and tidy.

Negative Reviews

Can be dysfunctional when events are on

When large functions take over the building, the quality of guests' stays frequently suffers. Parking, which is usually quite limited in any case, becomes impossible, whilst the place becomes crowded and pretty noisy.

Staff lacking customer focus

Guests are far from being seduced by the charm and hospitality of the hotel's staff. They feel that they are pretty much disinterested and do very little to help or even acknowledge their presence. They think that they need to show more professionalism.

Maintenance problems

The facilities at the hotel do not seem to be well looked after and up to date. Plumbing appears to be a big issue, with guests complaining of leaking toilets and showers, whilst air-conditioning machines often malfunction. The TVs in the rooms are old and work poorly too, whilst Wi-Fi can be weak or impossible to connect to.
