I chose this hotel after reading up on tripadvisor and I find most reviews are fairly similar to my experience.
Front Desk - Not the most knowledgeable/helpful staff. They were nice but it took them a long time to retrieve our booking and figured out our rooms (we booked three rooms but their system showed five rooms and later on realized it was their mistake) and was not able to put all of us on the same floor. (Not the most ideal situation for group travel). Not much advice or recommendation was given for nearby restaurant/attractions.
Location - I agree with many other reviewers that the hotel is well-situated, with a convenience store around the corner and Old Town White Coffee (24/7) across the street. It's perfect if you have an early start in the morning to Mount Kinabalu or other excursions. You can grab a coffee/snacks/supply at your arm's reach.
Room - We had a deluxe family room and it was spacious! Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was very good size. Good pressure shower-head and adequate bathroom amenities. I also liked the counter space in the room that made packing a more manageable task. TV, on the other hand, looked small in this big room.
