The room is quite interesting because they not using a regular door, they using a sliding door maybe to help us enjoy the... More

We took a corner unit with 1 queen bed and 1 single bed. Our room terrace was great for hanging out during the day as it had the view of the mountains. Woke up to a beautiful misty morning. Bathroom looked a little tired so perhaps the management could look into making it look nice again. There was a vcd... More

My gf and I are climbing Mount Kinabalu and had stayed for 2 nights over here, 1 night before the climb and 1 night after we came down from the mountain. This is a nice quiet place within walking distance (300 metres ++) to the entrance of Kinabalu Park. If you are going there to attempt the climb, this can... More

We booked 2 nights, ended up staying only one. This is a very good location if you want to go hike in Mt. Kinabalu, as we did for a day, but besided there is nothing to do there .... You can indeed eat something right across the entrence of the park, but besides this, it is dead ... that's also... More

Stayed there for one night with my husband for our honeymoon. We stayed in House 1. For less than a hundred, we had a good experience staying there! The room was clean, comfortable and spacious!! They even have DVDs available for us to watch movies. There are restaurants available nearby, but I'd suggest going for the one right in front... More

Great place to stay whilst exploring Kinabalu Park. Room was big with en suite, DVD and tea/coffee facilities. Nice deck outside to sit and look across at the view of the mountains. Steep entrance to the place but wasn't an issue for us.

The rooms are wonderful and is definitely value for money. The beds are comfortable and basic amenities are all present. The water is clean, not yellowish from what we heard from local friends in other areas. Kundasang has rained for the entire day on our arrival, so the rooms and water are super chilly even though there are water heater... More

My family and I checked in this hotel last August 2014. We get room 3A, 3B and 5B. Glad that they have connecting room for family and basic kitchen outside. The room can fit max 4 pax. Spacious, clean and nice. Love the bathroom. Suit the look and feel. Just one thing, this place doesn't have any mountain view as... More

Nice clean room with decent price as it is located just outside Kinabalu Park. Other Hotels inside Kinabalu Park are much more expensive. Breakfast is not included and you have to walk around 200 meters to a Restaurant at the junction to Kinabalu Park. The room has kitchen facility, located just outside the room.

This was a great place to stay the night before attempting Mt Kinabalu - only a couple minutes walk from the park entrance and restaurants, and a fraction of the price of the accommodation in Park HQ at 88MYR for two people. The room was very nice with a modern feel, and the beds were very comfortable. We were able... More
