This hotel would have been great, but it looks like it is still being built!
After being on a jungle trek, coming into a nice comfortable hotel was a nice change. The facilities are (would be) good, but when we were there it just seemed a bit un-prepared for tourists! The swimming pool was empty, the bar was closed, the breakfast was not fully available.
These are all small things that wouldnt stop us going back. It is a nice comfortable hotel and we paid a small price for it, so altogether a good experience. The staff were great, booking taxis for us without delay, even when we were stuck out at a local temple miles from the Hotel!
Its about 10 minutes out of town, but at only £3 for a taxi, it didnt matter that much.
For a budget location, if the facilities are available when you go, it will be a great place to stay in Sandakan.
