If you're not too fussy about where you rest your head, this place will suit. Nothing fancy about the accomodation. The linen was clean, but everything was rather shabby. The bathroom was a bit scary, but the water was hot, and the towels were dry. Meals at the Cottage were fantastic - Chinese style, but delicious! The location was close... More

This hotel had basic accommodations with a TV, hot showers, and basic breakfast of bread, rice, sausages, eggs and tea and coffee. The location of the hotel was a 15 mins drive to Kinabalu HQ and provided reasonable standards for hotels. What was good was the service standards of Amirul at the reception when there was a problem with my... More

Stayed at Cottage Hotel, 1st floor, room nearest to the staircase. Room was acceptable except that our room TV couldn't receive any reception. Fortunately, WIFI was easily connected in this room - but other rooms couldn't. So, many had to use WIFI at the lobby. Toilets are clean but hot showers are weak. Breakfast is not fancy. Just enough to... More

The hotel offering near Kinabalu park is not plentiful so you have to adjust your expectation levels accordingly. The Cottage hotel is a very basic hotel with no heating in the rooms and very poor insulation / isolation. We had the bad luck to stay at the hotel for two nights when the rain was pouring down and the wind... More

I stayed for two nights on business and travelled with my husband (I didn't want to be on my own in a new place). It took us two hours to reach Kundasang from Kota Kinabalu. The surrounding views are spectacular. Be sure to ask a room that faces Mt Kinabalu, but if you don't get one, don't fret. The vista... More

A very simple and very basic hotel for a night stay and no more. Everything in the room was basic. The breakfast was basic. It's ok if you're staying for just a night before your climb the next day. If you don't plan to climb and are looking for a place to stay while holidaying at Kundasang, please try other... More

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

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
