“Nice to stay, Worth the price.”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Me and my friend booked a twin bed room with A/C. The room is clean and A/C works very well. Bathroom and toilet are clean. The lady boss Mrs Lee is very friendly and helpful, showing us places to get nice food in Miri town, giving informations on trip to Mulu and Brunei, arranging pick up... feel so easy to walk around in Miri.

Better than our expectation!! and with the help of the lady boss Mrs. Lee, the trip has been so much convenient! she really eased our journey! She is very friendly and helpful in nature. We are truly grateful and appreciate her assistance all the way! God bless her! Thanks to the driver Joseph as well as he had done an amazing job!
The place is really beautiful and pleasant and warm. I highly recommend this outstanding guesthouse for other customers.

Great little hostel. We stayed in a double room which was spacious and had air con. The owner is a gem and full of useful information. The common area has a warm feel to it and one feel truly at home at Dillenia.

We stayed 2 nights in the honeymoon room. Very clean, A/C. The bathroom is shared but also very clean. Cosy lobby when you can use internet. But the biggest asset of Dillenia is Mrs Lee. Very nice contact from the beginning. Fast answering all e-mails. Arranged pick up from the airport for us. Proposed that we leave in the guest house some of our luggage when going to Mulu to travel light. Organized laundry service, taxis, recommended great place for the best laksa in town. If we would be in Miri again we will definitely stay there again.

I have never had a bad experience at Dillenia! Mrs Lee, the owner, will always do her best to help you, whether it's with finding somewhere to stay in Mulu or helping you wrap up parcels to be sent home. Nothing is ever too much bother for her.

The rooms are good, it's not a 5 star hotel - so manage your expectations, but it is the comfiest, most relaxing guest house I have ever stayed in. Everything is clean and Mrs Lee's decorative quilts on the walls make a lovely addition - look out for the tiny fish in jars as well!

The guesthouse is well placed, there is a huge mall opposite with a supermarket and a food court; along the main strip there are also some good places to grab a quick bite to eat. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to the airport and Mrs Lee can arrange a pick up, its 20myr (the airport taxi's charge 22) - if there is another guest arriving the same time as you, she'll put you both in the same car so that you save money!

Overall this is probably the best guesthouse I have stayed in and if you're coming to Miri, this is by far the best place to stay.

Every city deserves a Dillenia Guesthouse! Just came from Miri and my stay at the Dillenia Guesthouse. I've stayed at plenty of places and have traveled a lot and this guesthouse is by far one, if not the best I've been at.

I had a private room, A/C and single bed for 50 MYR a night. Obviously I can't guarantee prices but at the time of writing this is what I paid. The room was quite large, very clean and had one of the best beds i've slept on in months. I like firm beds and this was just that! The pillow was also perfect, given that many places I've stayed in Malaysia have over-sized hard pillows that crank your neck in extremely awkward and unnatural positions. If you've been on the road a long time or travel frequently you know how important a good pillow is to a good nights sleep.

Bathrooms were again very clean and for the ladies they have hair dryers. There are two hot showers and two cold only.

There is a nice common area with TV, movies and games etc. Two computers and free Wi-Fi. I was able to get wi-fi in my room upstairs as well which was nice. The kitchen is spotless and they provide a variety of awesome teas and coffee as well as a simple breakfast including, toast, jam and fruit.

Mrs. Lee was great and very helpful at arranging tours and taxi service to the airport. If you have any questions about anything related to Miri, Niah Caves, Mulu etc she can definitely help you plan your trips.

There is not a 24 hour reception so if you show up like I did, super early and with no booking you may have to wait for someone in the Guesthouse to let you in or for someone Mrs Lee to come and let you in. One checked in however the access is 24 hours with a key card.

All in all it's a wonderful guesthouse, very comfortable, clean and quiet. If it wasn't in Miri I would have stayed longer than two nights. They do a great job of making it feel like home.

Room Tip: rooms upstairs are probably a little quieter if it's full. All though I doubt you'll have pr...
