Friends of ours and my wife had an unforced layover in Brunei due to Royal Brunei Airlines re-scheduling without enough advanced warning so they allowed us an 11 hour stopover in BSB and they put us up at the Orchid Gardens.
When we arrived there eventually after the pre-organised transport from the hotel was late-late that put us behind even further as we had originally planned to play golf at the Empire Country Club had to be cancelled as the hotel informed us we could only have the rooms till 4pm which meant to tight a schedule so golf was cancelled then they informed us we could have the rooms till 5-30pm which I said to late we have cancelled golf and inconvenienced us to which they then altered our checkout till 6pm?????? So all in all not good at organisational skills.
On the hotel and room side of it well umm! the room totally stank of very stale smoke and needed to be aired for a year. Plus the hotel in general needs a huge makeover to bring it into the 21st century. The only thing that made it worth staying there was the bar that opened at 4pm for ex-pats and genuine tourists... a drinking haven in a tired hotel........
All in all would only stay there again if the Empire Club was totally booked out.....would seriously look at the Raddison next trip.
