“Good accommodation for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

Must start by saying that room rates are around RM100-150, which at the time of writing is approximately USD30-50 a night. Obviously not a 4 or 5 star resort, however, there is surprisingly robust free wifi during our stay and the rooms were old, but clean and well-maintained.

Kudat is a pretty small seaside town and other than nearby beaches and tip of borneo, there are definitely limited things to do. As a place to stopover, it offers excellent value for money and is conveniently located. At this price, no complaints.

A good clean hotel with all the amenities you need, located on the edge of a slightly run down town.
Service was good and helpful, but go somewhere else for breakfast :-)

A very ordinary experience, where you this felt like a way station to get you to the Tip of Borneo...so go and stay there in the developing beach scene (i.e. bungalows and a ridiculously wonderful beach that would be wholly spoilt by now in other parts of South-east Asia).

Also, the breakfast here doesn't seem to be included because they want you to visit their completley separate, but adjoining cafe next door-the food here was also exceptionally ordinary).

Great hotel in Kudat. Had some communications issues but we managed to work around. Cost for making phone calls is prohibitive. If you are looking to go to beautiful Tip of Borneo, I would recommend to stay in bungalows on the beach instead.

Our family of four spent one night in the 2-bedroom suite with a living room, a small pantry, 2 bathrooms and a balcony! Great view of the town from the 4th Floor. Wifi available in room and at the cafe where we had breakfast (breakfast not included in room rate). Great location.

My family of 5 adults stayed in Ria, Kudat for 1 night. The double-bed corner room was big and there was enough space for 3 of us to move around even with an extra single bed installed. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Air con was good and the shower worked well too. There was a cafe/restaurant right next door with a good selection of food. There was a free to use PC with fairly fast internet by the reception. Good value hotel.
