I know it is the only hotel in a small town, but they could still do better. No hot water even though plumbing was equipped for it. WiFi was reasonable considering the location. Good for short stay only

A simple hotel for our short trip to Kapit, our main purpose was for the Empurau fish. The blanket seems to be folded wrongly, fur blankets were folded on the inside and bedsheets on the outside, so our body were actually in contact with the fur blankets which were not washed frequently. Location was okay, nearby wet markets and next... More

We had a short overnight stay and the usual place was fully booked so we ended up here. It was a pleasant surprise as it was not a place recommended by our local friends but yet it was nice. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and the staff was quite accommodating. Location is good as it is walking distance to the... More

A disgusting hovel of a place. Whilst here major renovation works ongoing so impossible to get any rest during day and u cannot believe the hotel does not make these renovations known. Will probably have to return to Kapit again but I would elect to stay on the streets rather than this ramshackled dump. Even the cock roaches have left.

Dear Yolanda, Firstly my sincere apology for the unpleasant experience during your recent stay with us. I was disappointed to learn about the incident happened. There is simply no excuse for the failures on our part. It appears that you did catch us at our worst, and for that I deeply apologize. I am however very disappointed to read that... More

Kapit is a small town, and this is a perfectly adequate small town hotel; nothing fancy. One night I seemed to be almost the only guest, but another night they were completely full with some sort of a local government convention. I stayed here twice: once in a deluxe room on the third floor that was perfectly fine, clean and... More

Kapit town is accessible via express boat. Upon reaching the town from Sibu after a three hour ride the first thing you want to have is a good shower and a bed to lie down. The hotel is only about 7 minutes walk from the wharf. If you have a lot of luggage there are local who willingly carry them... More

Checked in on Friday night around 9pm. Was given the room key and a towel. Asked the receptionist if theres coffee making facility, she said No. Ok not big issue. Took the lift to 1st floor. Hallway to room was dark. Maybe the hotel was saving electricity or just environment friendly. Found my way to the door using my cell... More

There isn't a lot of choice in Kapit, but I'd need a very good reason to stay here again. The room is very basic, with crumbling walls in the bathroom. The corridors are gloomy and grubby. The best thing I can say is that the water pressure in the shower was pretty good. There's no breakfast available. There wasn't a... More
