We stayed in a triple room at the Longhouse at Sepilok Forest Edge Resort. It was a bad deal, grossly overpriced at 45MYR each for a bunk bed. There are many cheaper options to stay, but we were dropped off there by our transfer and too lazy to move.
The hotel is walking distance from the Sepilok Orangutan Center, and we were lucky enough to see tons of orangutans show up to the afternoon feeding: http://erohisms.com/how-to-spot-orangutans-pygmy-elephants-and-proboscis-monkeys-on-a-budget-in-borneo/
The grounds of the hotel ARE beautifully landscaped and they even have their own nature trail—on which we got at least five leeches each. The restaurant also served some creative food, which was a nice change from the typical Malay fare.
