Stayed at the empire hotel for conference purposes. The sheer size of the hotel is incredible, always seems empty. The pool was empty, the gym was great but empty and everything seemed slightly outdated and smelled slightly of humidity, probably the weather. You basically need a buggy to go anywhere which is quite annoying sometimes and the city centre is... More

Visiting this hotel was on my mind for years, and when I got the chance to stop over did not hesitate to try. Hotel lobby is luxury and staff are friendly - Room are huge, and nicely arranged, with free internet and bar. My disappointment was for the service which can be improved by management, like small small details that... More

My daughter and I spent a wonderful 3 nights at the Empire in a sea view room. We enjoyed the swimming pools, the beautiful sunsets, the Spa centre, including indoor lap pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and cold plunge pool. The breakfast was great and the buffet at Pantai as well as the Italian restaurant, which wasn't cheap but the food and... More

What a fantastic hotel, a real gem hidden away in wonderful surroundings. The Deluxe seaview room was very spacious and the bathroom was extremely large and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and attentive, we enjoyed afternoon tea the the very varied International buffet at Pantai, the selection was fantastic.

Excellent rooms for a very comfortable stay. Definitely best quality and very well maintained. But very limited in terms of food in the hotel and nothing within walking distance. Swimming pools look nice but too dark after sunset, so I guess we're not supposed to swim at night. Thats bad for people on business because nights are when we have... More

We are there for escaping the city noise. We found that this is a good hotel with the price we paid. The hardware provided by the hotel is extremely great without any question but the quality of restaurant need to improve. Will recommend to those people travelling with families. Please bring along your swimsuits because they have great swimming pools.

This hotel is truly bizarre! We stayed for three nights, primarily to tick Brunei off the list and to experience "7-star" luxury! Haha A vast, empty white elephant, this is truly testament to man's folly. Built by the Ozymandias of Brunei I literally did look on his works and despair. Rooms are dated, very nineties and business-like in feel. They... More

We stayed for 3 nights and would've happily stayed much longer. The pool area was great, simply great. The staff were very good and the landscaping maintenance was top notch. The food while not being cheap was awesome as well. The rooms were large and we upgraded to an ocean view which was well worth it. The beds were super... More

This is a delightful hotel! There's nothing to fault, and the beach side walking paths encouraged me to go jogging. Quite good value too. I'd even consider coming here with SWMBO (she who must be obeyed).

I'm a frequent guest at The Empire Hotel, so I was surprised and disappointed today that the Hi-Tea was not like before. The food served should be fresh. Such as a Live station fried noodles, it should be served hot not cold. Please look into this.
