This was the final stop after two weeks of travelling through Sabah and Sarawak - and what a treat! Hotel is spotlessly clean and staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious and on both visits I had harbour views. Imagine my delight when, on the second last night, they closed Chinese New Year with a fabulous display of fireworks.... More

This hotel is showing it's age, but kind of well-kept in general. Stayed in a deluxe room and found it to be spacious, and had the bonus of getting the river view. I thought the room was okay, but the ensuite bathroom could have used some sprucing up. The shower fittings were looking terribly worn, and the bath tub flooded... More

I don't like staying in smoking rooms, but when you're traveling in this region it can be hard to find the perfect clean-air room. The non smoking room I was given smelled awful. Changed to another room (ironically on the smoking floor) and it was much better. I have stayed at the hotel two times, and had a deluxe room... More

The minute you enter the hotel, you have a sense of deja vu as you have been transported back to the earlier 80's. Typical of the settings and furnishing, one can sense that nothing much was done to modernize this place. By the time, I enter the lift and came out to the floor where I stayed, the layout is...

I have to admit, I was a little freaked out with all the reviews about cockroaches in the rooms. Even had a couple of other ladies on our tour freaked out as well. Thankfully, didn't see any creepy crawly anything. We were on a higher floor so maybe that was the reason? We had a decent view of the riverfront.... More

Location fabulous, lobby good with free wifi, breakfast good. Bathrooms need revamp for this type of hotel and extra cleaning. Hallways beat up need work. Staff friendly and helpful So a reasonable stay but with a little updating could be better

Stayed for 2 nights. Huge room with 2 queen beds. Superb location with outstanding view of Kuching river and waterfront. No comments on food as we did not have any at hotel's restaurant. A short distance walk to waterfront and surrounding malls. Had 32" LCD TV in the room with a few Astro channels. Very clean room. (-) points :... More

I stayed here for an official trip just 2 days ago. The check in was smooth, and we are able to check in early. But there seems to have problem with our room key. We cant access to our room everytime after we were out of the room. After many access card exchanged, the hotel had decided to change our... More
