I'm a solo woman traveller in my 40s, stayed 5 nights with a group tour.
The hotel seems to be a gracious faded lady. The room very big clean with glorious old wooden furniture and fittings. Other said it was 'shabby' but that's a bit tough, she's just past her glory days maybe.
When I got sick (not at the Promenade), Laura and especially Nobilan were empathetic beyond my imagination. I was taken to hospital and cared for wonderfully in my remaining days there. Who cared then that the fittings were past their best?
My 5th floor room had an exit to sit outside, just lovely.
Incidentally I really recommend Borneo Trails, we did a specific orchid-experience with them over 3 days. Not only orchids but much else unexpected. The company won an award while we were staying.
The internet is MYR5 per hour (and round behind the hotel its MRY1/hr at the cyber cafe full of gaming teenagers), but I was delighted to get a discount with my long time blogging and hey, the service outweighs the weary feel.
Oh and the lobby boys in their uniforms are nice eye-candy.
