Room smelled very badly of smoke, sheets were stained and the bathroom was dirty. In need of refurbishment. The whole place feels really dingy. There aren't, however, many better alternatives in Limbang.

I've heard this is the nicest hotel in town, but that's not really saying much. The lobby itself was nice and check-in was fast. My group was there coming back from a jungle trek in Mulu, so our standards were pretty low since we had been sleeping outside in a camp and had not had access to hot water in... More

You get what you pay for. I was booked into this hotel as my function was held here. From the outside, the hotel looks good. It has basement car park which is convenient. The hotel is old. You notice right away at check in. Hence, I do not have high expectation and thus won't be disappointed. Anyway, I only spend... More

After checking in, found out that there was better inns with flat screen tv and better wifi. Was given wifi password but no connection detected, tv was the old tv, bathtub was about to fall off any minute and room smells. Even worse I had itch all over my body after staying for 2 nights. Room service was efficient but... More

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
