Horrible old hotel, extremely lack of maintenance, dark and creepy corridor like horror movie. I think the only reason it is still running is they are right next to the jetty pick up spot. Very dirty and stain everywhere, including bedsheets and towels. We didn't even want to touch anything, just stayed one night and left for island hopping.
Stayed 7 days in Semporna in 3 didferent resorts including Seafest Hotel. Pricing wise, it is way much affordable than other resort with similar facilities. They provide free breakfast and the hotel is equipped with gym and swimming pool and kids would definitely love it! Seafest is the most decent hotel in Semporna with hot water that works, clean spacious room with coffee making facilities, safe deposit box & fridge. We stayed in family room facing the jetty and my husband enjoy watching the fisherman unloading tons of fishes from the boat every morning. However you can smell the fish if you’re at the pool but that’s not so bad given the fact that there’s market nearby as well. The hotel is also strategically located so if you plan on island hopping it would be very convenient. Lots of seafood restaurants with affordable price and cafes nearby including Starbucks, Secret Recipe, Tealive. If you want to try the local food, Semporna town is just 5 mins drive and if you prefer it is also walking distance. Definitely choice of stay for my upcoming trip.…
Checked in twice within a month. Thanks to staff. They attended to any queires promptly. Heard ther were bugs from other comments but good to say bugs were gone during my stays. room relatively big for two person and price are reasonable.it comes with free breakfast. Brekafast spread resonable.
When approaching Seafest Hotel the suggestion of a 4/5 star hotel is raised. But finally inside the interior, especially the corridors and rooms, look outdated. Nevertheless the services are generally okay, the breakfast is extensive, mainly focussed on Asian/Chines guests, but enough choice if you like a "Western" style breakfast. The swimmingpool on the third is enclosed by walls so if you are claustofobic.... The hotel is situated near a small shopping mall with supermarket and Chinese run restaurant. The jetties to the many islands are all closeby.
spend several nights there, on good rate, at February they just finished with new part opposite side-so our rooms have been brand new. Not perfect so, as partly place was not finished, but compared to other places in Semporna this is splendid - breakfast was always good and excellent as buffet. We got broken and too old used towels, the bathroom was not completed, but in Sabah this is still the standard, so no worries, if everything else is fine.... If we ever go back there to Semporna we will choose this hotel
We stayed here for three nights. The rooms are quite spacious and the bathroom was clean. However, although the hotel looks new from the outside it is rather tired-looking inside and the decoration is rather old-fashioned and drab. The breakfast buffet was ok with a good fresh fruit selection. However most of the other offerings leaned towards Asian tastes. The swimming pool is on the third floor and has a concrete wall around it so it feels very enclosed and certainly not somewhere you'd want to spend the whole day. The gym was ok but the machines are old. The staff were friendly enough at check-in. However, when we discovered the travel agent, who has an office in the hotel lobby, was not there, they couldn't help us to track him down. Apparently they couldn't make an external call to find him which I found very strange and they didn't offer any other solution. Overall the hotel met our basic requirements but was nothing special.…
Knowing it's an old hotel, so didn't have much expectation for it. The room was clean, the adults pool seems cleaner than kid's pool but my daughter enjoyed it nonetheless. The buffet breakfast was good. Very near to the jetty so it's a great place for tourists who just returned from their island trips. There are restaurants nearby but food served quite slowly. Please be prepared to wait.
Had to stay overnight to catch the boat to Mabul Island. I had paid for the room in full before I arrived there. when checking in, the receptionist wanted me to pay more for the room. I told him I already had paid and showed him the receipt. Then he said I had to pay the tourist tax, which wasn't much, but I did not have Malaysian dollars because I just came in from a long flight. He made me pay it. I changed money at the hotel. It cost me $10 to change $50 US!! He could have charged the tax at check out. The hotel does serve a decent buffet breakfast. The hotel is old and the hallway carpet is filthy. Rooms are average at best. The place needs an over-all cleanup.
This hotel seems to live on its slogan as the "first business hotel in Semporna". It looks a bit tired, both lifts in reception out of order, you had to drag bags up stairs to get to the backup lifts (god knows how anyone in a wheelchair would manage). No offer of help w bags etc, staff were more professionally polite than helpful. Most greetings we got from the cleaners and maintenance staff, not front office. Room itself was comfortable enough, so no complaints there. Breakfast buffet was ok as well. The hotel seems to run the surrounding restaurants, ate at the one on the jetty. Service was patchy and food pretty bland. As a stopover hotel before heading to the islands its good, close to all the travel agency offices, but it feels like they live on their reputation and location rather than willingness to improve and service.…
Very basic but clean. Near the jetty and also quite easy to walk into town centre. good seafood nearby at reasonable prices. Rooms were clean. bathroom needs sprucing up. A little outdated and dirty in some places.
