A very clean hotel with helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant, though not haute cuisine serves some good, value for money dishes with large portions. The Laksa Sarawak is not the best I have tasted but was still very good. Good location for all the major attratcions of Kuchong.

Value for money. Just opposite the famous Kuching Waterfront. Just cross roads the oldest temple in the city, Chinese History Museum and James Brooke Cafe... For what I paid, I got it. Breakfast was good, they have western and local choice but just okay... Staff- I think this is the reason I'll come back here again... i like their hospitality..

There are so many cockroaches in the room! How to stay Most of the facilities in the room are not in good condition! Toilet - no pipe/hose or bidet. Very unhygienic! Pay RM 165 for what! Worse than low class hotel! Regret to stay here!

We stayed at Harbour view for 4 nights over New Year and it was an excellent base for (re)visiting Kuching. The room was quiet, large, clean, comfortable and had a great view across the river. We did not have meals there but there is no shortage of restaurants in Kuching. Sure, the wifi (labelled "lobby") only worked in the lobby,... More

The bedroom itself was fine, if somewhat utilitarian, but the bathroom was in serious need of attention with the tiles mildewed and caulk rotting. Breakfast was good, however.

When we arrived, the lobby was fine, receptionist was polite and hospitable. Our room was at level 10 with river view, considerably spacious with a 2-seater sofa but i wouldn't sit on it as it looked too old to me. The only new item in the room, probably the flat screen TV! Channel could be intermittently stop. There were no... More

I stayed at the Harbour View for a couple of nights and had a lovely stay. The rooms are simple but perfectly fine. Nice bathroom with a good shower. Breakfast was fine. There was a small spread of bread, cakes, savoury curries etc and a chef serving eggs to order. The staff were all very pleasant. I would stay here... More
