Situated high on the hillside above the pleasant little town of Tenom, the Perkasa is surrounded by spacious gardens and a large car park which backs into prime rainforest - so watch out for monkeys and don't leave your car windows open. The hotel itself is, well, shall we say a bit faded. It reminded me of provincial hotels in... More

This hotel is one of the three under the same name and with similar design; one each in Keningau and Kundasang. I had stayed in the other two recently and they are popular among guests who are familiar with it. It is probably the earliest hotel in town and by the look, the furnitures look very tired. Amenities are basic,... More

We required a night stay in Tenom after driving from Poring Hot Springs in Ranau before we drove back to Brunei. As we were not familiar with this small town, the only way was to rely on online hotel bookings on the various websites. Perkasa appeared to be the best available and the pictures displayed looked decent but when we... More

Firstly, the accolades. The views are fantastic, and the wifi in the lobby (not available in the rooms) is fast. That's it. Otherwise, this place is like a morgue. The staff never smiled, apart from the lovely lady who made a valiant job of cleaning my room. My room was a suite which must have been good about twenty years... More

unsmiling service from receptionist when we arrived. very disappointed with the rooom we were offered (room 307). the room emanated a sweaty smell, the carpet was threadbare, dirty, had cigarette burn marks and other mysterious brown marks. the bathroom was disgusting. dirty with cracked and dirty tiles. the toilet seat was actually cracked; could have cut my bottom on it....

I'm sure when the hotel was built, the rooms were nice and amazing. But now they're very smelly, dated, and sad. However the floors did have carpet and the bathrooms had bathtubs, which are both very unusual for Malaysia. The windows opened but had no screens and the windows could not be shut all the way, so we had some... More

We were here early January 2013 for a 2 days 1 night trip. The hotel is located on a hill with gives you a very quiet and cosy feeling when reaching the hotel. The hotel's lobby is just in front of the main entrance... and the doors of the main entrance are widely open. I hardly feel there's any air-conditioner... More

Tenom is a place few would visit but for a train buff - also it was supposed to have the giant rafflesia plant and orchids of the rarest kind - no-one knew what I was talking about and I could find no-one to take me to these wonders so the room with the view was the next best. For its... More

For 10 ringit more I got a room facing over the valley with a beautiful view of Tenom settled below. It is high on a hill and for those without a car it's not far to walk to town. Coming back it's one long curve up a steep hill and at night its best to take a torch as the... More
