I have booked the hotel based on the TripAdvisor opinions and on the location.
Having been there 2 nights I can address the points made by lots of other travellers:
- it is not a luxurious hotel, if you want luxury then you book into the Empire Hotel & Country Club for at least 5-6 times night rate.
-the hotel provides a very clean, comfortable room with everything you need in it. I have slept very well, better than in some more expensive hotels I have been afterwards in the same holiday
- the staff is just OUTSTANDING ! and attends to your every need: food wise, excursions, lifts to various events etc, etc, etc and HERE is where they get the points on TripAdvisor. Well done to them for their hospitality, warmth and care!
- I have found the breakfast appropriate, in particular the traditional Bruneian dishes. Had a nice coffee, juices, cereals etc It isn't a 5*, it provides a breakfast.
- there is a complimentary shuttle ride to the airport, yes the driver was not there ( maybe they can improve on that) but it took them about 10-15 min to reach there. Use the nice Costa Coffee shop upstairs to refill until he comes.
Overall a good experience at a good price. Thank you for your hospitality ! I will be back one day !
