My husband and I planned to stay at Dreamtel, keeping in mind that most of our time we would be staying off the hotel and exploring KKB. And the Dreamtel hotel with less reviews, was what we opted for. We had booked the Superior Deluxe for 2 nights, thinking we would change to some other hotel in case we had any change in minds regarding the hotel facilities.
But to our surprise, we didn't feel the need at all :) instead the 3rd night we continued our stay in the same room. And the staff was kind enough to keep our luggage till the evening when we returned, as we hadn't checked out.
Room has all the basic amenities that you would need. Fresh, clean and comfortable mattresses and pillows & linen is all what you need post a tiring outing to KKB park n Tip of Borneo.
Though you may find the bathroom to be a little smaller in size (but we all know we need not stay in it whole day) and provided they are quite clean for a quick shower.
Staff: I guess the hotel has a handpicked smiling staff! Kudos to the Hotel Manager.Right from the door man to the reception, to the restaurant manager, all are quite welcoming.
Few names that I can recall Nelessa, Muhammad, Ramadil, and even the waiters as I am missing on remembering the names. But all your warm welcoming smiles shall be remembered.
And great thanks to Chef, I became a fan of your Nasi Lemak all 3 days and Pancakes, and the Breakfast buffet was so filling that ours stomachs didn't growl till late afternoons!!!
And even the complimentary Latte Cappuccino was quite refereshing :D
Thanks to the staff & keep up the maintenance and we would love to stay in Dreamtel again on our next visit!
