A honeymoon cake had been prepared for us and were so delighted by this wonderful gesture.Thank you :) Check in was very fast and efficient. Staff were very professional, smart and friendly. The size of the room exceeded our expectations. A great view of the river.... More

Please consider staying in the new wing as for the difference in price, it's definitely worth the money. The Chinese dinner banquet was very sumptuous and this hotel is recommended if you wish to have a Chinese banquet for your wedding. Strategically located as the town centre and the jetty to get to the other side of the river is... More

Stayed 4 nights in 'Superior Room'. On arrival we were advised that there were no non-smoking rooms available. We were given a 1st floor room overlooking a busy main road. The room had an extremely strong odour of tobacco and was totally unacceptable. We were then offered a 4th floor River view room which appeared much better. However, directly opposite... More

I am not really particular about my stay in any hotel except for clean bathroom, comfortable bed, strategic location and excellent breakfast spread. I got everything in my stay with Grand Margherita Hotel Kuching. However, this is old hotel previously known as Holiday Inn and been refurbished as new.

We stayed here for one night when we arrived in Kuching. The room was very nice, and had the added bonus of the view of the cat statue, which was why we picked this hotel. The room was very nice and spacious, with all the right facilities. I liked our small amount of time here, but would not return again.... More

This hotel may have been nice when it was new, but now it is a ruin. We had an old, damage, filthy room. Everything was half broken. The bathroom was moldy and rusty.
