My girlfriend and I stayed here for just 1 night as we were moving on after visiting Sepilok Orangutan centre. The hotel claims to be the only 4* hotel in Sandakan although having stayed there I don't really understand why it's not a 5*. The staff are incredibly helpful, polite and efficient, the facilities are excellent, including tennis and squash courts, a gym and even it's own nature trail, and our room was very large with a really comfortable bed. We had a lovely view over the pool and gardens behind it although we were only on the 4th of 7 floors.
The restaurant served both set meals and a buffet with a wide variety of choice and the food was really good. The entertainment was limited, consisting of a duo who serenaded the diners (a little embarassing) as we ate our evening meal in order to drum up an audience for their performance in the bar later. We went up there afterwards and found ourselves in the audience of six. Intimate!
We were really sad to leave after only one night and found ourselves thinking of excuses to visit Borneo again for a week or two just so we could stay here the whole time. Considering we live half way round the world I think that tells you everything about this hotel. The value for money here is unbeatable and you should definately stay here.
