“Fantastic Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

Basic, comfortable like UK holiday camp chalet with en-suite. Some rooms quite a distance from the restuarant in the beautiful gardens. The lodge has a shop and guests lounge, food in the restuarant great. But the views!!!!!

Room Tip: The further from the restuarnt has the best views.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2006

I stayed here two nights in late April, 2006. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, though basic. There's no TV etc, and AC is not needed as the mountain air is a welcome respite from the tropical heat and humidity. There's a heater for chilly nights, but I just piled on the blankets. Bring something to read or you will be bored to death at night, espepcially if you are on your own and tired of your company.

The grounds are lovely, with steep walks as buildings hug a hillside, and densely planted with flowers and blooming shrubs, and a gazebo. Dinner is at 7pm in the dining room in the main building, and groups are seated together; breakfast varies according to groups' departure times.

Buffet service is offered for breakfast and dinner when there are many guests, but there's a set menu when only a few guests. In any event, they run a tab for drinks and extras. As I avoid undercooked eggs especially when travelling, staff cooked up a special order for me, no problem. They have toast down to an art!

When we complained about being offered bland western dishes, staff added some spicier Malaysian fare, which they considered too humble for guests, just suitable for family.

Walk up to tthe staff building early in the morning for clear views of Mt. Kinablau's peaks.
