As a rule I very rarely complain but our experience at Hotel Seafront was so bad that I feel I have to warn other travellers.
Even though this hotel is relatively cheap, the service is so poor that it should down grade itself to a hostel. On arrival noone offered to help with our bags even though we were on the top floor and there is no lift. The porter just sat in the lobby on the internet (which is very pricy). Once we made it to our room it smelt so putride that we had to open the window onto the main road which was very noisy. There was no loo paper in our tiny, unclean bathroom and reception made us go down the four flights of stairs to go and collect some. The bed was uncomfortable and didnt feel clean. I could have dribbled harder than the shower.
But there was worse, the breakfast was inedible. Uncooked boiled eggs and toast that tasted of sawdust with what can only be described as jelly on top. We left as quickly as we possibly could!
My suggestion would be to spend no more than a day in Sandakan and use it only as a hub to visit the amazing surrounding attractions such as the coral reefs and the Kinabatangan river.
