1st of old, if u're the type of perfectionist & love luxurious thing, then dont go to this place. I know that this hotel is already old but i love the view. Before u decide to rent the room, u may request to have a look 1st and be sure which one that u want. We stayed at the Chalet... More

We have been coming to this hotel for many years but did not stay the night. This year, we decided to give it a go. Please remember that this is an old hotel. Their only recent addition are the hill chalets, which require the guests to walk up stone steps. The spa is closed indefinitely, the small canopy bridge is... More

Pros - Location is on top of the hill - Clean - The buffet spread is average to good. Cons - Wifi is only available at lobby area - No aircond or fan in the room. (maybe because of the cold weather in the area). - Some of the look out point is closed. Not sure why.

Stayed here for one night. First impression wasn't very "Wow-ed" because of the surrounding. Not very attractive & interesting. Room: Our room was quite ok, clean & neat. Bathroom also no problem. But gets very warm at night if u dont keep the windows open & if u keep the windows open, might just imagine weird thing coming in from... More

Just stopped here for lunch and was greeted with very poor first impression. Looks grubby and lacks a welcome. Menu just fast food in a grubby dull room without any of the fabulous views. Disappointed and still hungry! Highlight of this stop is the canopy walk and views of Mount Kinabalu!

This hotel was initially hard to find as google maps proved to be challenging. When trying to call the hotel to ask for directions, and it boasts that it has 5 phone lines, no one answered. Perhaps this should have been a sign to keep on going. The hotel itself is not a resort, nor does it have a functioning... More

I stayed in this hotel 8 years ago and it was already run down. I came back recently and sad to see there was no improvement at all. But the view of Mount Kinabalu from the room is magnificient. The hotel has so much potential and in dire need of refurbishment.

I don't even know where to start! The most disgusting place we have cone across during our three trips to Sabah. I had looked at the pictures before choosing this hotel but they only show the chalets which are separate and look quite nice. When we arrived, I was shocked to see the hotel which looks uninviting even from the... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. The hotel has one little shop near to reception, which we needed to buy a board game, as there was NOTHING to do in this hotel The bar reluctantly opened at 9pm (but then didn't have what we wanted). The reception staff were unhelpful. The spa was a just a dirty massage room with giggly girls... More

Stayed at the resort for a night only... My husband and I stayed at chalet no 13 which was far far away from the main building... The chalet was quite small and has a moldy smell.. The toilet really needs cleaning as it has very strong ammonia (or urine) like smell.. I had to clean the toilet as I cannot... More
