We went to this hotel in the late evening, it was the first hotel on our way so we decided to try it out, despite having hesitations. The outside of the hotel wasn't really looking good and inside it was also not very clean. The girl at the reception was giggling all the time and it took her a really... More

Good view good surrounding in Kundasang. Hotel located near Mt KK and Kinabalu Park. Walking distance to Kundasang morning market which is must visit. Hotel nearby attraction will be Kundasang War Memorial, and Desa Cattle Dairy Farm which worth visit as well. Taxi can be hired for MYR 60-80 for 6 hours service. Hotel rooftop have good view as well.... More

My friends and I took a package deal to Sabah and part of the deal was a 1 night stay at Kundasang. We stayed at the cottage. The rooms & bathroom was clean, cant expect much on the service. We had steamboat for dinner and it was good but nothing to shout about. There is nothing much to do there... More

Unfortunately my room was right behind the reception desk. It was loud all night ---especially the toddler who was being babysat by the night clerk Wifi was spotty and breakfast just passable. However spectacular morning view of kinabalu

Very good location to view the mountain but must wake up early. The valley view from the hotel is awesome. Near the Desa Dairy farm and Kundasang Memorial park. Reasonable rate. Enjoy my day staying here.

Room is okay, clean and well maintained. Staff is quite funny, always joking. Walking distance from Pekan Kundasang. But water pressure is low! and far from Kinabalu Park if you don't have any transportation. Reasonable price.

The hotel is ok for a budget hotel.. the room that we got is quite small and not very comfortable, but clean..except for the last day we were there, there were lots of flies. They need to improve their breakfast as it is the same meal every morning (fried mee hoon, porridge, boil egg and bread only every day). The... More

We got the last room available on the Christmas Day without prior reservation, so even if the reviews were not great, we felt in luck. The room was in the "basement", ie overlooking the hotel car park = OK for 1 night. It was clean although desperate for a refurbishement - particularly the bathroom. All else was more or less...

Economic but not satisfying... As this hotel has no elevator, its really exhausted dragging our luggage up using staircase... A perfect spot if you want to see Mount Kinabalu since as its located at the bottom itself... Food is just nice as it serve more on Chinese style menus.. Overall, it was just nice...

Economic but not enjoyable stay, suitable for youngsters but not elderly folks. The hotel has no elevator, so quite difficult for my family and i as we needed to drag our luggage up using staircase. The staffs not friendly nor very unfriendly, but i highly recommend to try the food besides, the fried rice is very nice.
