Centrally located and facing the river. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with king sized beds. Good wifi, everything working fine except the hot water in the shower which was lukewarm. Great staff, friendly, efficient and helpful. It has a pool and a playground so it's good for families. Recommended

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel to stay in great location in Kuching, this is one not to be missed! Its so centrally located that you can walk literally to all eating spots, shopping spots! And the room is so comfortable! And we had river view rooms too! We definitely will be coming back!

The advantages: 1) GREAT breakfast, with a huge variety of options, and plenty of staff-members who are friendly and helpful. 2) Smack-in-the-middle of town. Perfect location. The problems: the building is old, both in design and in its functioning. We would recommend a make-over soon... The swimming pool is small and miserable-looking; the shower-heads are located too low for tall... More

We managed to get an unbelievable deal here at the Margherita, I imagine because we booked it so late. It was only 414 RM for 2 nights in the executive suite (£79). The executive suite was impeccably clean; the king size bed was extremely comfortable and I didn't want to leave it. However, the best bit was that a great... More

We booked into Grand Margherita very last minute and ended up with a fantastic price and an executive suite! This place is impeccably clean, very modern and stylish. The outdoor pool was lovely and we had a great view of the river from our room. The executive club free drinks and food between 5pm-7pm was amazing and there was a... More

Had to wait 3 hours to check in. Went to the room, not ready. Messy beds everywhere. Shocking that rooms are not available until 5 pm. It appeared to be very disorganised, I wasn't the only one waiting.

A handy note... As it's quite a big hotel, there is almost always a taxi waiting outside. If not, there's a taxi stand just across the road. Also, as it's quite a big hotel all the taxi drivers know where it is. So if you're ever lost, it's only a few Ringgit to get home! The hotel... Not a bad... More
