We stayed here for 6 nights. Booking was done directly with the hotel through Serinah who was very good attending to my email requests re rooms and prices. Initially I booked a Deluxe King but on further research on room sizes opted for a Executive room which I upgraded to for an additional30 ringitt a night. Worth doing as we had more room than the deluxe king.
Room was comfortable and spacious. Cleaning each day was rather rushed and perhaps need a little more attention.
Breakfast was good and adequate with servings of both Asian and Western type food. We had to mention on our second moring to the owner that the food neaded to be warmer in the bain maries. This was taken on board and duly corrected for the rest of our stay.
Staff are friendly and helpful. In fact we found that in general all people in Kuching were keen to say hello and have a general chat to you.
The hotel is within walking distance of the central part of the city and the river esplanade. You can do cruises down the river and travel over the river in a sampan for 1 ringitt to visit the orchid village which has free admission. Good closeups of the Legislative Council building can be gained here also.This is a striking piece of architecture for Kuching.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from China Town, Other writers had mentioned the laundry which is found by turning left out of your hotel and then right into China Town a couple of doors down The owner was great. Laundry was ready when she stated and she even delivered ours to the hotel when we were going to arrive back from a tour after he closing time.
China town is very interesting with many eating places. A great coffee place called "Bing" sandwiches and drinks and a Indian restaurant "Maharajahs" wonderful freshly cooked food. Roti was great.
Overall a great place to stay and don't forget to check out the view from the 5th floor of the hotel.
Thank you to the Lime Tree Hotel for a great stay
