“All you need for a pleasant stay”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I can only confirm everything that is written in the previous post.

This location is absolutely amazing! And Mrs. Lee is unbelievably helpfull in everything you ask her.

As we flew into Miri very late (around 2230), she organised a pick-up for us for RM 20.
The next day we intended to go to Lambir Hills National Park. However, as we were on thight schedule we didn't want to take the bus until we get there. Mrs. Lee again offered us a pick-up which also waited for us there and brought us back (RM 40/pax).

And finally, as we were heading towards Bandar Seri Begawan, we again ask here, how to get there best.

There are two options: Either take the public bus (around 0800) or hop on a private car that does somehow a postal service between Miri and BSB. We opted for the second, and we were within 3hrs in BSB (RM 60/pax - almost the same price, as if you take taxi to bus station and then the bus to BSB).

Thank you Mrs. Lee for your help!

Spotlessly clean rooms and bathroom. Mrs Lee is really pleasant and helpful. Free wifi and two internet computers. Soap, shampoo and hairdryer supplied. The usual tea, coffee, toast and fruit included. Lots of good restaurants in easy walking distance. Had a really relaxing stay.

The Dillenia is very basic but it's very homely and comfortable. The rooms are nothing special but they are clean and the beds comfortable. It has share bathroom for all rooms. There a single, double, family and dorm rooms available.
The best bit of Dillenia is Mrs Lee as she provides a welcoming atmosphere and is a great source of knowledge for what to do in the area along with other places to go in Sarawak. It's also very good value.

Quiet, clean, friendly....... like at home.
Rooms are clean and spacious. Shared bathrooms - great (free shower gel, shampoo), hairdryer (!).
The owner, Mrs Lee is the nicest person we have met on Borneo. She answers all questions, gives a map with location of the best restaurants in Miri. She arranges transfers to Niah, Brunei, to the airport.

If Miri - Dillenia only.

Dillenia has a very homely feel decorated with the handiwork and handicrafts from Mrs Lee. The guest inn is located in a central location and provides two computers with internet access and also wifi. If you want to experience the charm of Miri this place is a must stay. The owner, Mrs Lee is extremely friendly and knows every inch and corner of Miri. You can find out all the best local spots to eat, sights and attractions, best massage parlous (without happy endings of course) or if you're on the prowl maybe she know's some places ;)

We just stayed for one night on a short stop-over in Miro, so I cannot make a comprehensive review, but if I ever return to Miri, I definitely will chose this Guest House again.

Atmosphere was very homely, the owners friendly and responsible, our double room as well as the bathrooms were spotless. I had the feeling it is slightly above average on pricing but still a good value.

The included breakfast was actually by far the best on our whole trip (inluding fresh fruits, etc...).

We originally booked a room at another place. But we gave them the wrong date and they were running a full house when we turned up. We then called Mrs Lee, the owner and she patiently explained what was available and how to get there if we are keen. Once we reached there, a very friendly Mrs Lee welcomed us and offered many other advices. The place is impeccably clean and adorned with her own handiworks. Potted plants, fishes, quilt and the dillenia leaves are everywhere in the two stories. We helped ourselves to hot coffee and tea, toast and fruits for breakfast. My 6-year old daughter ran around the place and said, "this is like our house, daddy."
