Got a great rate for our long weekend break and was pleasantly surprised by our free upgrade to a deluxe room with River view. The hotel is not perhaps as majestic as it once was and is a little shabby, but can't fault it for the price. Great location by the river with shops and restaurants nearby.

Old hotel but well kept. Bed was great and comfortable. Check in was fast. To get cheaper deal, book at their website instead. My only complaint is: No wall socket at the bed side for charging!! Alternatively, stay at Grand Margarietha it's sister hotel. New and way much better.

Last November, I was the Liaison Officer for three Indonesian Chefs for Asia Food Kitchen 2016, and Riverside Majestic is where the committee has chosen for our accommodation. The stay was for ten days, and if we were placed in another hotel, I'm not sure if we could cope with the exhaustion. The bed was expansive and comfortable, with great...

Booked a twin deluxe room for 2 nights with breakfast at a far more affordable price at its website compared to accommodation search engines such as trivago & booking.com. Room located at the 13th floor. check-in was at 2pm but we requested for an earlier check-in around 11am which was allowed due to vacancy of room. Pros: (1) Very centralised...

Hotel The hotel is ideally located between the North & South City Halls municipality. Opposite is the Tourism office. Mr Evenue Hajar Shaini, the Tourism Assistant is very helpful. Unfortunate there's limited information on Kuching food especially Chinese food. Likewise on Kuching heritage or Chinese Temples which are in abundance. The hotel amenities are ideal & presentable especially the lobby....

The hotel room faced the Sarawak River and offered excellent views. It was large, and basically well appointed, but somewhat worn in appearance and a little musty in ambiance. However the service, overall cleanliness and helpfulness of staff, not to mention the very reasonable rates, made for an enjoyable stay. Wi-fi in the room was patchy - but solid in...

Only 1 socket provided so insufficient for multiple use unless you bring your own adapter. Breakfast selection some what poor. Hotel is clean but old & needs an upgrade. Should provide separate Q for check-in/out. Waited some 10mins in line to checkout & when it was my turn it took only 1 min.

We chose this hotel for two reasons. The first one was the location and I have to say that the hotel is in a perfect place in town and that was brilliant. The second reason was the view and even though the view from the room was outstanding, the glass was completely dirty and full of mold (very unpleasant to...

Excellent location. Central to so many eating places, sights and shops. You'll be able to stick to this area if you're there just for the weekend and chances are, you won't be bored. The hotel (old wing) has seen better days in terms of fixtures and decor, but the service is top notch. I didn't try the food at the...

Well, I was greeted warmly during my check in and unexpectedly was told that they have upgraded my room at no additional cost. Nonetheless, everything looked so old. Cleanliness was alright, though. For the same price, I'd stay in another hotel.
