We have just returned from a 7 night satay at the Holiday Inn Kuching. The hotel is excellently placed for shopping, McDonalds etc but the pool is awful !!! The whole pool area is dark, dingy, dirty looking and uninviting. The pool water was murky and had bird feathers floating in it because there is a tree in the "garden" where thousands of birds bed down for the night. There are 6 sunbeds for the whole hotel !!! I couldn't believe it - but that said they were nerly always empty as the pool area was not inviting at all. We used the Crowne Plaza pool (part of the same Holiday Inn chain so it is o.k. to use) across the road - slighty inconvenient but this pool was much better and I think they had 12 sun beds. (Hilton has a nicer pool but is further away and only 7 sun beds !!)

Back to the hotel everything else was o.k. - room, facilities and restuarant. Staff very helpful and free internet at reception for guest use. There is a free tram/trolley for tourists that circles Kuching - ask for stickers from the bell captain. There is also a shuttle bus to the beach hotels (10 ringits return) - both beach hotels are lovely but very remote. The cultural village is good and would recommend this in the morning and then the beach hotel for the afternoon and catch the 5.15 p.m. shuttle back (55 ringits p.p. from the bell captain) - this gets you back to the city arond 6 p.m. Hire a taxi to visit the orang-utans (approx 80 ringits there/back/waiting time) - this is the best place to view them as you can get very close and it is much more natural than Sepilok - and only 3 ringits entrance (Sepilok is 30 ringits but it is still good value)

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Kuching in March 2005 and it was wonderful! The room was very spacious and the beds very comfortable. Coming from South Africa, everything about the East was different but so exciting and interesting. They offer a huge variety of very tasty dishes.
I fell in love with the country, not even to mention the people. The staff at the hotel is so efficient and helpful. They arranged tours to the most fascinating places! And everything happened on time!
My mother hurt her ankle during our fabulous jungle trekking event and back at the hotel we asked to see a doctor. He arrived within 15min! This was so amazing.
Thumbs up for Holiday Inn Kuching and staff! You will be fondly remembered. This was one of my best vacations ever. Malaysia, truly Asia!
