One of the worst rooms we stayed in. It stinks and the bath looks like it had seen better times 30 years ago. Tiles were broken and so was the shower tap. Room is big though. Hotel is un the center. There is hardly other choice in town... That explains the room quality.

Got stuck here coz couldn't get into Lawas. Hotel room was average and dated. The aircond was good, Tv was okay with limited hazy channels, shower was nice and hot and water pressure was strong. Beds were hard but I was too tired to bother. Reception was excellent. A good place to stay the night in Limbang.

By all accounts this is the best hotel in Limbang but it's pretty awful. Old and run down, the linen in the rooms was a but gross (this was confirmed when I got bed bugs). The corridors smell like smoke and the wifi is patchy. Best avoided, I think.

Everything was just OK except that I have one of the lowest quality of sleeping. I guess the sharing door has quite a wide gaps between the door and the floor that I could hear clearly the guys talking next door. I also have to be careful because I was alone and I don't want to talk too long on... More

Was there on business and stayed 2 nights. For the price you paid, the facilities were adequate and the location is great. Plenty of food to eat in the surrounding area, if you are not into hotel food. Overall, for my next trip I will stay here again as this is easily the better hotel in Limbang.

from the outside a modern hotel, lobby looks posh. Rooms are old though, bathroom had nice hot shower, but the floor was flooded constantly due to bad draining. Colony of ants under the desk, 4 TV channels, we had to watch an urban music channel. Next door neighbour of the hotel is a mosque, who called for prayer at 5am.... More

It has been around for more than 10 years but maintains its attractive appearance especially it's colourful exterior. Ideally located in the middle of Limbang town surrounded by shops, markets and a short distance to the waterfront. Suitable for tired travellers who drive through this town on long journeys between Sabah, Brunei and Sarawak.

The hotel is easy to find, nice receptionist, safe car park. I can say this is a budget and a little old hotel as the rate is cheap but the room is really spacious. Never compare this hotel with 5 stars hotel. You get what you pay. Easy access to the only mall in Limbang. Foods are acceptable. Ask for... More

Limbang is situated in the middle of the two legs of Brunei. This place is also the most horrible bottleneck if you're trying to cross over to Kota Kinabalu because they have this really small river to cross to Temburong (Brunei) and is only the width of one and a half ferries but because they do not have a bridge,...

The only shopping centre in Limbang. 2) RM/m2.. this hotel is definitely the cheapest is Malaysia. Lol.. 3) In room menu has some quality & cheap too. Would recommend it to all. 4) Riverview room is highly... More
