Nice B and B close to the rainforest discovery center. A short walk and you are in a beautiful rainforest with plenty of hiking trails and lots of birds. Pleasant rooms and nice settings. Breakfast was adequate as was dinner. WiFi in the cafe. The staff are all nice.

The area is lush and beautiful. Breakfast was average but sufficient. They messed up our bookings but things turned out fine. Rooms are spacious and clean. Good to stay if you want easy access to Sepilok and Uncle Tan.

Best location for the Rainforest Discovery Centre (5 minutes walk down the road). It’s also an easy twenty minute walk to the Orangutan sanctuary, where there is another cluster of hotels. The B & B has a range of accommodations – we stayed in the least expensive First Lodge. It was bare bones, but clean. Nice, large open sitting area... More

This place was exactly what we were looking for. We stayed in a double room in the first lodge. We had an attached bath room. The room was basic but clean. We spent the leisure time in the restaurant where you can nicely sit outside (and enjoy the company of numerous cute cats). The food was good and not too... More

Great location; a much better option than staying in Sandakan. We stayed here for 2 nights, which was perfect for spending a day at the wonderful Orang Utan centre (15 mins walk), and the following morning at the very worthwhile RDC (5 mins walk), before being picked up for our Jungle tour. Our room in the Hornbill lodge was massive... More

Would highly recommend Sepilok b&b. It is well located close to both the Rainforest Discovery Centre (5 minute walk) and the Orang Utan Sanctuary (15 minute walk). It is easily accessible from the main road, we just called and they picked us up in a car as it was dark. If not dark you could probably walk in about 20... More

If you are going to Sandakan chances are high that you are going there because of Sepilok Orang utang centre, then you should stay here. This is located 500 meters from the Rainforest discovery centre, which is Worth a day of Your time as well. The Orang utang Place is 20 minutes walk,but it is pretty easy. The B&B is... More

:-)Great location for visiting the RDC bird watching,the room was clean, nice and helpful staffs. The breakfast was good. :-( But the waiting time for dinner was a bit long, better the prepare some snack for yourself if u can't withstand hungry.And the pressure of the shower was not strong enough. Overall, worth to visit.

We arrived at 10 PM and the reception was closed, even although we emailed for a late check-in. So while it was raining we had to search for somebody of the staff. The first night we slept in a room with single beds and with a shared bathroom. The room wasn't very clean and there were some spots on the... More

Friends who have gone to Sepilok in Sabah, East Malaysia, have all recommended me to stay at this place. First, it's affordable - under Singapore $35 a night, with a simple buffet breakfast. The room is large (stayed at the Hornbill wing). Good, large and firm bed. The floor is clean and one can walk around bare-footed. The airconditioning is... More
