This is the perfect version of a simple guesthouse. It is clean, well maintained and you immediately feel home. Mrs. lee helps you with everything you want and draws the maps you need to reach your destination very clearly. This guesthouse made our visit to miri absolutely worth it.

Excellent proprietor and this negative review is NOT for people who choose shared room and toilet ias their norm. For that type of budget traveler this negative review is irrelevant but for less budget conscious old geezers like me the stay was at best just average. I booked the honeymoon suite incorrectly assuming that for 93 myr and being labeled... More

This was a great place got stay in Miri. The owner was available to give us many useful tips, the rooms were clean and basic. The breakfast included bread, fruit coffee and tea. We only stayed 2 nights but our stay was very comfortable.

Mrs Lee is an amazing host. Could not have done more to help me through my stay. The rooms are really clean and the common area is perfect place to chill out. Great location just away from the main street. Wi-Fi was very quick also. Mrs Lee was very helpful sorting out a share taxi to the airport also. Great... More

Mrs Lee is the perfect host. The accommodation is clean & comfortable with everything provided. In a good location in the city close to restaurants & shops. It is Mrs Lee who makes Dillenia Guest House, nothing is too much & her knowledge on transport, tours & just about anything to do with Borneo is invaluable.

I cannot say enough good things about Dillenia. When I arrived there, I had been travelling around Malaysia for two months, and was a bit frazzled, worrying about arranging flights and accommodation in Bario and Mulu, and getting to Kota Kinabalu. Mrs Lee pointed me in the right direction for accommodation, arranged taxis to and from the airport, advised on... More

Dillenia has such a lovely feel to it. The rooms are clean and welcoming and Mrs Lee is great. She really made us feel welcome and left sweet reminder notes on our door. She suggested we leave our bags there while we were away for 2 nights which was really helpful. The location is great too, very close to imperial... More
