We stayed here as a stop over on the way to Sepilok for a couple of nights. The hotel is situated a little way back from the waterfront but it's only a 5 minute walk so this shouldn't put you off. The staff at the hotel were all friendly and tried to assist with the problems we had, which were mainly with regards to our room. It was clean, spacious and on the top floor so had a decent view, but the decor was old with some stains, the bathroom shower was poor and the main issue was that our windows did not close.This meant it wasn't the quietest night's sleep but more importantly didn't make us feel particularly secure, especially in a room with no safe. When we alerted the reception staff about the problem, they very kindly offered another room for us to look around but unfortunately the windows were also unable to close in that room. A handyman was sent up, who did manage to jam one of the windows shut but not all of them. Overall the staff were very pleasant and helpful and the hotel was decent for the price but just needs a bit of a spruce up.
