New wing cost RM160 and old wing RM102. So I prefer old wing for 2 nights. Thumb up for the hotel housekeeping, their staffs did a prefect job very clean room. Lobby staffs very well-trained, no problem of early check in and late check out. Good view of the Rajang River. Walking distance to nearby food stalls. Beware water front... More

Checked in at 2.30pm but rooms are not ready. No definite answer is given how long to wait for the housekeeping to be done. An answer we got from receptionist is the rooms are not ready and housekeeper didn't answer. Speechless.

Good location & not too far from the main town area. Good value. Fantastic view of large river, the largest in Sarawak. Friendly staff. Food is acceptable. Room is large & cosy. Ambiance is good. Being a small town, distance to the airport is a breeze.

Great value but terrible customer service. Been standing 3 mins in front of reception, receptionist didn't bother to greet me or handle my check in by talking to her back office colleague like answering some questions. Maybe I'm wearing too shabby in their opinion.Stayed in old wing with discounted price. A value price for a family room. No more mini... More

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel. Room is of reasonable size but toilet amenties very basic - just a small bottle of shampoo, bath foam, shower cap and a few sticks of cotton sticks. Looking at the state of the bath tub, I don't think you will ever use the bath foam and the hair dryer is in a pathetic... More

Stayed at Kingwood Hotel recently. As the hotel was almost fully booked due to the big event in Sibu, I managed to get a room in the old wing. First impression: Great hotel which meet my standard. Second impression: Dirty, moldy windows. Basically, old here is not gold. Maybe they focus too much on the new wing that the old... More

Strategic location, around 10 to 15 minutes walking distance from Sibu town center. Easy to get food around, there is 24 hours convenient store nearby too. I spend one night in this hotel in a nice scenery room facing the Rejang River. It is stunning beautiful to enjoy the sunset, but the view could be nicer if the windows are... More

Kingwood Hotel, Sibu is our hotel of choice in Sibu. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. It is centrally located and within minutes to the Sibu Central Market, the biggest wet market in Malaysia. A visit to the market, especially the Native produce section is a must. It is also walkable to most commercial centres like eateries, malls church... More

If you stay in the new wing, the rooms are new with NO carpet thank goodness. My shower did have a drainage problem though. Also, my towel smells of cigarette. Overall, It is certainly one of the better hotels in Sibu. I do not understand their breakfast coupon system though, why bother giving us the coupon only in the morning... More
