Our guide booked this hotel for us and it was not bad. It was inexpensive and the view of Kinabalu was stunning. We were there during the Hari Rai festival and were invited into the festivities. We just wanted dinner but the muslim families there were shoveling dish after dish of food and dessertin front of us. Hotel staff got... More

Stayed here in June while on a birding trip to Kinabalu National Park. At only a fifteen minute drive from the park, this hotel is plenty close enough. The room is basic with hot water but no air conditioning, although there is a fan in the room. Breakfast is included with the room, but other meals aren't. The restaurant has... More

For a price of RM200++, the hotel has no lift. The water heater has no pump and the water pressure is very slow. The breakfast was okay but the steamboat dinner was so so. IT feels like a budget hotel with a high price.

Location is good. Room is clean. Although the staffs are not smiling at you, they still assist you. The service is not so bad though. Maybe I used to see people at the counter, with smile on their face and will greet and smile back to you when you have the most sweetest smile early morning. Breakfast? No improvement. Just... More

We came down from a holiday camp from the mountain, and we checked in into this place. It's just a place to sleep and freshen up. Dont expect anything more. We had breaskfast coupons but we did not eat there as it looked unappetising. If you need a place to sleep, and hot water to bathe this is it. You... More

We enjoy our stay in this hotel. You can enjoy sun rise view at 6.00 a.m which was amazing. Mount Kinabalu peak view was very clear when we stay there. We had our steamboat dinner in the hotel restaurant which offer various fresh vegetable and hot soup. The vegetable and fruit stall was about 5 minutes drive from this hotel.

Old, tired, and very dirty. No airconditioning, no safe, 3 floors but no lift and rubbish stored on the landings. Dirty plates and leftover food were never moved from the landing during our stay. The dining room was full of flies. There was no water during the afternoon or evening but no communication to say it was a planned repair.

If you're not too fussy about where you rest your head, this place will suit. Nothing fancy about the accomodation. The linen was clean, but everything was rather shabby. The bathroom was a bit scary, but the water was hot, and the towels were dry. Meals at the Cottage were fantastic - Chinese style, but delicious! The location was close... More

This hotel had basic accommodations with a TV, hot showers, and basic breakfast of bread, rice, sausages, eggs and tea and coffee. The location of the hotel was a 15 mins drive to Kinabalu HQ and provided reasonable standards for hotels. What was good was the service standards of Amirul at the reception when there was a problem with my... More
