“Good location”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

This is an average hotel which offers reasonably good services and facilities. At the price paid, it is value for money. However there are rooms for improvement, namely the tv set needs upgrading and breakfast to offer more choices. It is located within an area surrounded by food outlets, close to taxi stand, night market and banks. The area is not as busy as some hotels nearby.

The hotel is functional in good location. Rooms are clean. The hotel lacks spark.
Breakfast is decent. Patchy wifi in lobby.

Those starting intrepid tours start at this hotel. One note. If you are going to stay extra night before your tour, book it directly with the hotel rather than book for the extortionate £55 with intrepid.

1. Made a reservation for a room (Superior Family room for 3 adults) via the hotel's website 3 months before date of traveling. Confirmed twice via email. But 3 days before the date of departure, they called to inform me that they have no superior family rooms available on the mentioned date, and 'actually the rooms are already full when you make a booking on that day". They requested me to move to the Superior Twin room (2 single beds). Finally they relented and told me they will keep my room up to 5pm on the day of check in.

2. On their website it was stated 'Facilities include high speed wireless internet" but internet is only available on the first floor (cafe) and not the rooms.

3. Taste of the food at the buffet breakfast was average but they ran out of food too fast and couldn't replenish immediately. Guests have to wait quite a while for the food.

4. Their maintenance department staff was not on duty on a Sunday until 11pm, we had to wait from a few hours (from 4pm) before they could get someone to fix the toilet at almost 12am!

However, it is within walking distance to the Gaya Sunday Market, Filipino Market, Craft Center, Waterfront, etc and price of RM188.00 for 3 adults per night with breakfast is reasonable.

Stayed here for 1 night otw to Kota Belud from Bintulu in Nov '11.

Pros:
1) Free parking on weekends (but limited)
2) Great value. Govt rate MYR 128 for queen superior room. Incl. breakfast for two.
3) Fantastic view. Make sure you mention room facing the main road.
4) Staff & security at main entrance is exceptionally good (except the reception, I'll come to that)
5) Despite comment for some TA, the breakfast is a lot better than more expensive Hotel Seri Malaysia, Lawas we stayed the day before.

Cons:
1) Melessa & Patrick (both at reception) could have done better than making us wait for 1 hr (1345 to 1445 hrs). The reason is everytime a booking is made, a room will be 'locked' and guest can only check in to that 'locked' room and not the other even though there's one available. Image looking at walk-in guest get their room card immediately. This has ruined my first impression of this hotel.
2) Parking around the hotel is not enough during weekdays.
3) Matress found dirty with blackish colour.
4) There's a big crack on the wall. Room 1209.
5) Only few tv channels actually working - with poor audio & video.
