“Loved the pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2006

In the middle of August, we stayed there for seven nights and loved every one of it. Rooms are big, clean and with a nice view of the river. The pool is big and the breakfast buffet had pretty much everything you might think of (including freshly squeezed orange juice). Although this hotel seems to be positioned as a meeting and convention center, the front desk managed to book some interesting tours for us.
The Crowne Plaza belongs to the same family as the Holiday Inn hotels so we could access the services at the Holiday Inn Damai Beach resort without problems. A shuttle service (although not for free) runs several times a day between the hotels.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for five nights and boy, did we hit the jackpot! Right from the moment we arrived and found we had a choice of five different types of pillows, we realised we were in for something special. We had heard much about the genuine friendliness of the people of Kuching but one really has to experience it first hand. Obviously the staff at the Crowne Plaza are carefully chosen because their attention to detail is exceptional, whether it be the concierge staff greeting us by name, or being asked by our regular waitress how our sightseeing had gone that day. Breakfasts are to die for and the Japanese smorgasboards are really something else! Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, the pool was spotless and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The doormen in particular had great senses of humour! The position of the hotel is perfect, it's close to markets, shopping, restuarants and surprisingly very quiet. We were sad to leave at the end of our stay but rest assured, we will definitely be going back.

We (2A & 2C) stayed overnight. Wonderful hotel and obliging staff, very accommodating and efficient. Great breakfast & excellent service. What else can I say, we'll definitely stay in this hotel again & again if we go to Kuching.

Exceptional is the only word for this hotel. We stayed only 2 nights but wish we could have stayed more. Did not have a single complaint. Room was fantastic, service was unbelievable. Ring house-keeping and they are knocking on the door 2 minutes later. Staff so helpful, they were ringing room re tours before we had unpacked our bags. Has free internet for guests. It is on the river so close to all the things to see. Go to this hotel, great value, you will love it!!

The Crowne Plaza Riverside was a great place to stay. Our rooms were great, comfortable and a good size. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us, continually asking for ways that they could help us and improve their service. Breakfast was fantasic, so much choice! Very hard to have to come home and get used to making my own breakfast again. The concierge was great, giving us pointers on where to go and what to do. Tried a few of the restaurants at the hotel and they were all very nice too.
Would recommend staying here and will be going back myself.

Excellent hotel at the price which was under US$50 per room per night including breakfast.

The facilities are great. Its very nicely located with nearby food stalls, fast food chains, restaurants, shopping complexes and the old part of the town such as Main Bazaar and the waterfront.

The staff are very friendly and it even have free 30 minutes internet access in the lobby. Same as free complimentary safe deposit boxes in the lobby.

Will definitely consider staying there again.

The Crowne Plaza is a very nice hotel. The staff were very friendly and would always start a conversation with you if your in a lift or someplace like that. My only complaints are that there were a few stains on the bedsheets, the receptionist gave us cards for our doors that didnt work and when we got them to reprogramme them and some still didnt work, the carpet was a bit motheaten and it stinks when you walk of of the hotel because of the open sewers. I loved the direct entrance to the mall nextdoor though and the buffet breakfast was pretty good, I didn't get a chance to swim in the pool but I'm sure it would have been nice. My brother loved the tennis courts and cable TV. I also liked the free water they gave us too. Overall the srvice was excellent and the location was too but the hotel might need some refurbishing some time soon.
