Beautiful Hotel and Staff

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Jul 2015
The price is a gift compared with the quality of beds and food. The dinner at the restaurant was amazing. Alla cart options, with local and international delicacies. The best treat in our Borneo Journey.

    Though the management have changed, the quality still pretty much the same. Room is spacious and always clean. Bathroom tastefully designed. Yes. Bathroom. Simple breakfast, nothing to shout about. The only thing maybe is the condition of the aircond. Noisy and hard to measure. It seems either too cold or too warm.

    Mark's Lodge is located inTaman Indah Shoplots. It was converted from a few three storey shoplots of the last row of shop in Taman Indah, facing the backyard of some terrance house. So the sorrounding was rather quite. This might be a plus point for travellers who have cars needing convenient on-site parkings.

    We chose to stay in this hotel because of the need to visit one of the nearby schools and also due to many advices from friends who felt that downtown in Sandakan could be quite rough at night time.

    We arrived the hotel in the morning well before the official check in time. The room was not ready yet. The very friendly reception young man politely took care of our small baggage and promised us he would call once the room was ready, which he did before noon. Check in was smooth.

    There was no lift in this hotel. It would be very inconvenient if you happened to have heavy luggages. We had only a small trolley bag so we were fine. The room was a spacious deluxe twin bedded room on the first floor. It was rather clean and well lit except the toilet's lights were too dim. The furnitures especially the tablet top looked old and warned with stains. Laminated floor looked clean.

    The beds were comfy but do not expect those expensive bed sheets which you get in five stars international chain hotels. The air con was efficient and cool.

    Breakfast began only after 7am. Hence we pre-arranged packed breakfast ready at 6am. They packed into 2 bags for us. By the time we brought the food up to our room, we realised that one of bags was invaded with hundreds of ants insides and outside the plastic containers !!!! So we ended up having to discard it. We had no time to complain or re-order

    The second morning, we managed to have breakfast in their cafe. Buffet breakfast was very basic. There were some limited selection of fruit juice, white bread with locally made jam (with strange taste), noodles, fish cake, extremely sweet cakes, cornflakes and local fruits. They did not serve freshly brewed coffee.. Only self-serviced hot beverages were available, by adding hot water to instant coffee granules or tea bags.

    We paid slightly more than Rm 200 per night. It was not cheap for a three stars hotel at a quiet not much happening place. A bit extra could put us in a 4 stars international brand hotel, Four Points by Sheraton, in town centre. We would have chosen that hotel if it were not due the recent kidnapping incidence at one of the coastal eateries near town area.

    A better choice perhaps, was to stay at the newer area at Prima Square just opposite Taman Indah. There were many hotels here but were all fully booked the time we visited.

    In general, a fine budget hotel (comparatively not so budget in fact) to stay in. We had a comfy stay indeed.

    I booked the room online for a night and paid by credit card. Easy parking and friendly staff. The room is medium size but the bed looks very comfortable. I really love the comfort bed. There's kettle, coffee, tea, sugar and creamers available in the room. Also mini fridge. Easy access to free & fast wifi. The location is in Bandar Indah where few building shops are within walk away. We got free breakfast but the choices are very limited. But overall it was a nice and comfortable stay.

    Stayed for a night. Room (double bed on higher floor) was clean, bathroom was decent, a/c was adequately cold and plenty of parking lots right outside. There's no elevator in this hotel, so those with bigger luggage would have a problem but fret not as there will be assistance to help out. Although the hotel is at the fringe of Mile 4 commercial area, there are plenty of ktv/lounges/bar/cafes/restaurants and amenities in the surrounding area.
