Great place- location was good (10min walk to waterfront) and there is a tour operator office within the lodge which is great for advice/info. Aaron was a great host & made us feel very much at home.

Stayed at the lodge as part of a medical elective. Was only 10 minutes walk from the centre, very clean room and Aaron was very helpful and friendly with us! Would stay again and recommend it. Was quiet with no other guests, but did not take away from the experience. Tom

Friendly home from home. A spacious guest house, we had a large room, big enough for all 5 of us, plus bags. Shared bathroom wasn't an issue as we were the only people staying. We had the run of the very large and well equipped kitchen and it made an ideal base for us to explore Kuching. The dip pool...

“The family rooms are lovely even for two. It's great to relax as well as explore and see the local National Parks. You can visit Semenggoh and Bako easily by public transport....”
