The best reason to stay in this hotel is because the hotel is located beside the river. I requested for a room that is facing the river. the friendly staff was kind enough to get one for me. Friendly staff and quick check-out. The room is clean and quiet. It seems that the hotel has just renovated.

My clumsy girlfriend hurt her toe on the street so we walked in to the Grand Margaretha hotel to ask for a band aid. The staff were very helpful and really took their time to make sure she was ok. This is hospitality at its best! Thank you!

We decided to stay at Grand Margherita based on reviews plus its facilities that they offered. The building is considered old from the outside, but wait until you come inside. The lobby is spacious, clean and comfy with its onlooking pool and Sarawak river. There are varieties of restaurants/cafe that you can choose for the whole day. Our room was... More

The hotel is so old. Has a mouldy smell and is very dirty + untidy. Power outlets dosen't even work and has only 2 power outlets available. The hotel also lacks of entertainment and facilties. It only has a extremely small swimming pool and a gym. Never coming back EVER. Ps. Stayed at room 644

Just returned from a visit. Great rates for adjoining/connecting rooms with twin beds (I think they are queens). Thus the rooms are spacious for two. The rates are less than half the price of an average motel room in a small country town in Australia. I paid under 700 ringgits for 2 rooms for 2 nights, under 60 aussies per... More

We are locals and trying this hotel for leisure AND the rate(again). Pros: - Swift check-in process. - The twin-bedded queen room was excellent for us! With low rate, we... More

This hotel was clean, facilities were good and (as everywhere in Borneo) staff very good and attentive. On arrival we were told we had an upgrade, however, whether upgraded or not, the room was average and felt a bit tired. The most unfortunate thing was the view from the window. From one side of the hotel the view is of... More

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
