Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Chose this hotel due to business purposes and nearby hotel. Rates are a bit higher compared to other budget hotels around Sandakan. Quite new hotel in Bandar Labuk Jaya but about 20minutes drive to town centre. Nothing much to do after night with some eateries still open around the hotel. Cleanliness could be improved especially the toilet as I could see some hair and a soap wrapper still in the bath tub. Called reception to clean up and send towels and tissue roll upon checking in at noon but when I got back at 8pm NIL. Had to call again just to get towels and tissue roll as I was too tired to complain. Windows were not aound proof so at 4th floor i could hear car, motorbikes at the nearby road. Lucky that pass midnight it was quiet for undisturbed sleep.
Breakfast is 6.30am till 10am. Food was okay. I find the hotel seeved ita purpose but if I were to go to chose I would prefer to stay in town centre, bandar tyng,bandar utama or bandar indah with a cheaper rate and more shops nearby.

We were there last February 2013 during chinese new year. it was my husband choice.

What i like about this place:
1. FREE WIFI
2. Parking space available for the guest.
3. There are local restaurant nearby (FREE WIFI)

What i dont really satisfy about the place:
1. Breakfast

But if you don't have transportation the management provide complimentary shuttle service (refer to my attachment) for you, So you'll be fine.

The hotel is quite near to the airport but far off the city centre of Sandakan. If you never been to Sandakan before and want to explore the town, I suggest you find one that located in the city center and not this one. The lobby looks good and the staff is friendly and quite helpful. I got quite a big room with a queen sized bed and a single bed. No carpet. I was actually a bit dissapointed with the cleanliness of the room, especially the toilet, I realized the bathtub was quite dirty, I think the cleaners didn't rub and clean the tub properly. There's a kettle and you can always drink coffee or tea in the room. The TV also ok with some good channels. There's no free wifi in the room. The restaurant is small, but the food selection is good.

Checked into The Pavilion Hotel coz I was to leave Sandakan early next morning. Was told that it takes less than 10 minutes to the airport and voila! it really was the case.

The room is considered slightly small but to a 3 stars, I reckon it suffice.

Nice lobby, clean everywhere, good service, good English speaking staffs and since I was to leave for airport early wee morning. I was down at the café before the opening time and the staff was kind enough to allow me to sit in and to entertain me with whatever he had made available. Bread, cereal, milk then came the standard hot and cooked American breakfast. Good and kind gesture. Thank you.

p.s I left the rating for the location at "Average" because it depends on your aim. To the airport you are sure to reach on time especially with the transportation provided. But if you are to explore the heart of Sandakan town, then you are actually quite far off from the town center.

Yours,
Gary, C. Wong.

The hotel is near to airport but not downtown, spend less than 3 minutes journey from airport to this hotel but another 15kms to downtown.

We were stayed in king size bed room, and able to stay in 2 different rooms to have different view. The hotel is new, everything is good and new! We were surprised it was fully booked everyday! TV is working well with satellite TV, 3rd floor is non-smoking room, and 5th floor is smoking room. While one thing a bit disappointed is no wifi in the room. And there is a corner in the lobby to provide PC with internet, but is chargeable. We found that the hotel is good in lighting decoration, from room to lobby and the restaurant, not bad. The staffs are polite, including front office and F&B, well-done.

The breakfast is ok, everyday is different menu to make you not so bored. However I am worry not enough capacity to cater full house, the restaurant is small.

As mentioned, the location is not close to downtown, please make sure the accessibility is well planned. The hotel is provided airport transfer, not sure others. However, car rental is recommended, you can get it in the airport and free parking is provided in this hotel. Or else arrange pickup by your tour agent. Although is far from downtown, but is close to crocodile farm, and is a middle point to Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary and Labuk Bay. After the whole day activity and tired, to reach this hotel we felt very fast. Surrounding this hotel is a new business area, many shops and local restaurants with reasonable price.

It was introduced by my local friend to stay in this hotel. Is a good hotel recommended because it is new, hope it can keep well in long run.

Room Tip: Some room is no window, please check if you mind.
