Reviewed 19 April 2012

We had spent 3 nights at the Riverside Majestic and were going to Bako for a night then wanted a room for one night at the end of our trip. The Majestic were going to charge us double the rate we had paid for the 3 nights so we went looking for another place. We walked into the Harbour view and asked for a price on a non smoking room for 1 night for the following night. They said that there wasnt one available but we could have a smoking room. We were a bit hesitant but they offered to take us up to a smoking room to have a look. Ok no problems looked good and wasnt a smell so we booked it. They were so friendly and helpful and the price a third of the Majestic. When we arrive the following night for our room they told us that they have a non smoking room available and bonus when we walked into the room it was facing the river. The room was a little small so would worrry about that if it was a long stay, but otherwise it was very clean and a very large bathroom with bath. Its in a good location just opposite the waterfront. Great value for money and we had Laska just around the corner to the left as u walk out the front doors and it was so good.

A very clean hotel with helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant, though not haute cuisine serves some good, value for money dishes with large portions. The Laksa Sarawak is not the best I have tasted but was still very good. Good location for all the major attratcions of Kuchong.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the river

Value for money. Just opposite the famous Kuching Waterfront. Just cross roads the oldest temple in the city, Chinese History Museum and James Brooke Cafe...
For what I paid, I got it.
Breakfast was good, they have western and local choice but just okay...
Staff- I think this is the reason I'll come back here again... i like their hospitality..

Room Tip: choose higher floor to get view of Waterfront

There are so many cockroaches in the room! How to stay
Most of the facilities in the room are not in good condition!
Toilet - no pipe/hose or bidet. Very unhygienic!
Pay RM 165 for what! Worse than low class hotel!
Regret to stay here!

We stayed at Harbour view for 4 nights over New Year and it was an excellent base for (re)visiting Kuching. The room was quiet, large, clean, comfortable and had a great view across the river. We did not have meals there but there is no shortage of restaurants in Kuching. Sure, the wifi (labelled "lobby") only worked in the lobby, and when it was not functioning, the staff reset the system straight away. Staff were friendly and let us use our computer in the restaurant outside of meal times.There were always taxis available if we needed to go further afield than the waterfront, main bazaar etc. The only complaint was the smell of someone else's cigarette smoke in the hallway, but the hotel cannot be blamed for other guests' lack of courtesy.
