We used the prepaid taxi option from the airport and arrived at the lodge with ease. It location is great. Right at the water front and rubbing shoulders with the heavy hitting hotels! We booked a double room with a bathroom. It was very clean and comfortable. Walls are very think so you hear your neighbours easily - however was not a big issue.
the lodge is extremely well run with a stream of people moving through it. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and respond to queries about everything!
They have a lovely bar upstairs - so if you want a beer - go upstairs - great view and chilled atmosphere. We went to Bako national Park from here - which was very easy as the bus stop to Bako is just at the back of the lodge. The lodge also has a left luggage area which can help if going out for a few days.
What a great please! Great stay!
I recommend you simply miss the breakfast - it is not worth it - a piece of white bread, watermelon and coffee. Rather head out and find an alternative.
getting a taxi back to the airport - simply walk across the street to the upmarket hotel and jump into one of the waiting taxes!
I would recommend Kutching as a base and take day trips and allow for at least a day for Kutching to see everything you would want to see.
Very nice relaxed feeling in this little town
