This place is pretty nice! A short walk from the Orangutan Rehab Center, Sunbears, and the RDC (about 20 min walk). I stayed in the dorm room there -- it was quite clean, and very cool at night (both a fan and aircon). They have a complimentary breakfast in the morning (toast and such), but you can also order a...

What a wonderful experience. This B&B is right in the location to have time to spend with the wildlife. The orange-tan and sunbear rehab centres are a short walk away, Labuk Bay proboscis monkey sanctuary 40min by taxi away, the nature reserve just next door. Rooms are comfortable, with TV, own bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. The reception... More

Spent 2 nights in Hornbill lodge in a spacious room. I have nothing bad to say, location is well placed because of Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, Sunbears Sanctuary, etc. Breakfast was simple, but OK, room equipment was OK. Slow Wi-fi. Food in restaurant is average and little bit overpriced. Take a shuttle bus to Sandakan and try some food market. All... More

We booked this place based on good reviews. When we reached their, except one staff all others were not interested in receiving us. We were forced to ask for the required towels and soap since they were not kept adequately. The room is ok for the price but the Air Condition was leaking water throughout of our stay and on...

Perfect location next to the Rainforest Discovery Center. The upstairs rooms in the Hornbill lodge all have air conditioners, hot water and small balconies. Comes with breaky and water. WiFi was hit or miss when I was there. Some of the staff are helpful and attentive.

My sister and I stayed here in the hornbill lodge which was a fantastic room. It was reasonably priced and waking up to the sound of the rainforest was a real treat. The staff were very helpful and always in good form. The food was nice with a good selection. The location is great, only a 5 minute walk from... More

We moved here from Sepilok Jungle Resort as it was very poor. We stayed in Room S2 which was AC room but it didn't work. We think it never worked and never will do so beware. On the positive, the rest of the room was fine, nice bathroom, very large with 6 beds, TV that worked unlike Jungle Resort and... More

We wanted a place to bade ourselves for the orangutans and sun bears, and thmop is was perfect. Both are walking distance. You can hear all the wildlife at night. The accommodation is clean, and the food portions are large. A great stay!

This is the closest hotel to the discovery centre which is a wonderful place. Our room was comfortable and clean although there was a little pile of termite droppings under the TV stand. Since our room was never made up in the three nights we were there, the droppings remained. A good breakfast was included and one could buy lunch... More

If your going to stay in sepilok then this must have the best location. I highly recommend the hornbill building especially if you can get a room on the top floor, I was lucky enough to see hornbills from the balcony in the morning. The food was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. But some of them did... More
