Our tour group stayed for one night and found the hotel perfectly satisfactory. It was well positioned, the staff were pleasant and the room, facilities, air conditioning etc were fine for the budget. My only carp wopuld be that we were given a paltry packed breakfast for our early morning departure.

Stayed here just for one night en route to a jungle stay. It is clean, has a nice breakfast room next door to the main hotel and lots of rooms have sea views (although you can request one when booking for an extra £3). Markets set up nearby so handy for any last minute purchases.

We stayed 4days 3nights. Room is a bit small especially the toilet but we all know, it's a typical Ibis style. Cleanliness needs improvement esp the molds in the toilet and the stains on the toilet seat. Both our toilet seats including my kids room, have stains that is giving us the easiness. The room facing the waterfront is wonderful.... More

The rooms are very modern and clean. The location on the harbour front area is excellent with many eating places within minutes walk of the hotel. Facing the hotel is the Harbour Mall which seems fairly new. The reception staff were excellent. My only criticism of this hotel is the breakfast. The location is superb, overlooking the sea however it... More

For me the only good thing about this hotel is the sea view. The toilet door in the room can't lock. The bed in the room got a few hair. The choice of breakfast is limited. The worst of this hotel is the hotel don't have car park. you have to pass the car key to the jockey to park... More

This Ibis Styles was re-opened in November 2014 under the Ibis brand. The hotel was formerly known as The Swiss Inn. Our 4 nights stay was not bad at all. For a very fair rate we did get a lot: A new and fresh room design Ibis Stylish, decent waterfront breakfast, free (but slow) wifi and a superior Sandakan location.... More
