“Old styled but clean hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is one of the the two better hotels in Labuan. Taxi fare from ferry terminal is quite cheap....less than RM 10/- Reception staff unfriendly when we checked in . Hotel guests are mainly the staff from the Labuan oil rigs etc.Room is basically quite clean even though dated with old furnishings. Swimming pool looks great.
Breakfast spread and service is disappointing though.

Room Tip: You can get free hotel transfer to airport or ferry terminal when you check out. Just inform the rec...

Many buisiness trips (maybe 20 nights spent) in last 2 years.

PRO: renewed room very cosy and modern style. Large and comfortable room. Very nice and large pool. Fair restaurant. Good place in safe area. Close to ferry terminal, Labuan financial center and next to the sea.

CON: I cannot see any ba points unless internet charges. (best is to buy a prepaid Sim card using phone as modem it is cheaper and works everywhere 8MYR / day)

Front desk very friendly and would help out when they can. Beer a little to expensive so worth drinking in Labuan. Food good and pool excellent. Only thing that lets it down is the workers in boilersuits at meal times.

Actually the room was OK with the english decoration etc but the furniture was a bit old and need some improvement. A bit costly, the rate was not much different from Grand Dorsett and Tiara, whereas those hotels valued for money. I love the food but too bad, i hate it when I have to spare some cash for internet hotspot fees, huhu!!if u want a free internet access, then have to go to the lobby. The advantage for this hotel is the location and pool. Well, i dun choose this hotel if i could get a room at Grand Dorsett or Tiara or Mariner. Gonna be my last choice, seriously :)

Room Tip: Choose the deluxe room and above. The one at the right hand side of the hotel will be better.

The pool area make the hotel looks like a resort. Please see my profile picture. Same one attached here (I hope I can do it ). The room is spacious and nicely decorated. Wifi is available but the cable tv has limited channels. Good for family and business stay.

Stayed here one night during a short visit o Labuan (over from Brunei). The hotel was recently renovated and is quite nice, even by US standards. It has a lovely pool area with bar, a nice restaurant (bfast included with room) and a great lounge. The room (executive with king bed) was also very nice and modern. The service was great, the food was good and I had no complaints. The price was right, too; just over $100 per night. There are probably only 1-2 hotels that are higher end then this. No complaints; would certainly stay here again if in Labuan.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool can be nosier due to noise from people swimming/talking near the pool area.
