Hotel and rooms were very rustic but clean and comfortable with a charming, native Borneo decor. The receptionist was very friendly and hospitable throughout our stay. Upon our arrival he let us view each available room so we could decide on which room we liked best. He held the room we liked most and offered to store our unnecessary luggage... More

Bonjour bonjour - we had a great stay at the waterfront lodge, the overall aesthetic and vibe is great, lots of character and interesting art and antiques (we really liked the racy painting of the lady in white down stairs!) - it's mainly local wood carvings and tribal stuff which is super cool. Our first room was super nice but... More

Apart from the breakfast, everything really excited us. The people running the place, the vibe and the great price for the quality. In my opinion the place and location to be if you're hanging out in Kuching.

We moved here after a few days at the Citidines, as we wanted to be closer to city and we're delighted we made the move. The Waterfront Lodge is within walking distance of shops, bars & restaurants and has a very chilled easygoing vibe. The accommodation is rather basic but, each room has its own bathroom & AC and the... More

We moved to this hotel after a few nights at a noisy hostel and it was nice to have a quieter experience. We negotiated a walk-in discount for a double room at the door and have to say that if I had payed full price I would have been a bit disappointed. Wifi doesn't work in the rooms which are... More

It was perfect, w lots of natural light and located at the back (i.e. quiet &... More

Right on the waterfront with Chinatown a block away, oodles of shops and cafes on the doorstep and tours, museums etc all within easy walking distance, this comfortable hostel was our home for a week. Our room was adequate, a comfortable bed, good air conditioning, TV and WiFi; the bathroom had a shower over the toilet, and in some rooms... More

We stayed here for two nights and we were warmly greeted by the lady on the desk. The room was small but clean and had all we needed. The people on the desk (there were three during our time there) were very helpful and friendly regardless of the time of day. They advised us on how to get to Semegoggh... More

Lovely staff and good clean rooms make this a really good value place. The old shophouse lobby is charming and the place retains the old world feel throughout. Was given a discount without asking for it and was looked after very well by all the staff.
