We stayed for a week in July after booking direct on the hotel website. Rooms were reasonably sized and comfortable and we had a room on the 16th floor so we got a good view up and down the Sarawak river, but the apartment block directly opposite spoiled the view a bit. Very reasonably priced if you take advantage of the web 14 day advance rate. Staff were very friendly and helpful but could be a bit slow sometimes. We only ate breakfast (included) in the hotel and teh buffet was very good and extensive with excellent service. The hotel is ideally located for exploring Kuching and we used CPH travel (about 10min walk from the hotel) for our tours and I would recommend them - knowledeable and helpful guides. We ate three times in the 'Hotspot' seafood court, only 5 mins walk from the hotel, and it was excellent.
Some sites class this hotel as 5*, others 4*. I would rate them as 4*, but having said that I would recommend this hotel as an ideal base for exploring Kuching and surrounds.
