I stayed there middle of last year. The plus of this place certainly is the cost factor. The rooms are of decent size and you are unlikely to get similar property cheaper in the area. However, I am unlikely to return there for the following reasons : Its not conveniently located. If you are the type of person who wants... More

I stayed for just one night before returning to London via Singapore while my partner stayed for five nights. I was pleased that the hotel was in a peaceful and safe area as my partner would be staying by herself. The hotel had two pools and both were good. The grounds are clean and pleasant. Everyone mentions the sheep; there... More

After hearing so many raves from our expat friends in KK, we decided to give the Sunday Brit Buffet a try. Pluses : attentive staff, good cocktails, the sheep, and the cheese made on the premises. Minuses: The restaurant was packed. Many large groups started to eat at 11.30 AM sharp so the appetizer and dessert part wasn't restocked enough... More

The resort is a simple one and not the luxurious kind. Rooms were reasonably clean, air conditioner worked very well, wifi in public areas also worked well! There is a small shop beside reception for snacks and water etc. The beach was no good to swim in but had a beautiful sunset. The pool was great (altho, the sheep does... More

We have stayed here many times on our way to visiting the many attractions Sabah has to offer. The chalets have recently been refurbished and are now very comfortable and clean. The old hotel main building has not been touched and I feel it is better for it. It gives off an air the old colonials sitting on the terrace... More

This is the third time we have stayed here...the first time we came was for our sons wedding. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the sea and Islands. The staff are wonderful and we are always welcomed by the owners Peter and Lisa. The rooms are set around a swimming pool and this is a friendly and relaxing place to stay,... More

We decided to stop over in Sabah for a week en route home from a trip to the uk. Great way to shake off the jetlag and a direct flight from KK to Perth without returning to Kuala Lumpur. Our room was one of the last that hadn't been refurbished which looked tired from the outside but was okay inside... More

We ended our two and half weeks in Borneo with a couple days at Langkah, and were very happy we did. The bungalows were space, clean, and well appointed. We ate all our meals at the onsite restaurant was some of the best we had on our whole trip. I'm not generally a fan of buffets, but their breakfast buffet... More

This is a nice place. It's a little older (we stayed in the new rooms but still) but the family room was very spacious with nice sun beds in front of the house. Here you sit in the shadow and you are protected from rain. The pool is just in front of the house shared with I think 4 or... More
