We stayed here as part of a tour down the Kinabatangan River run by Diethelm travel and I loved every minute I was here. The staff are friendly, the rooms are huge and beautiful, clean and comfortable and full of character with nature right outside your door. The food was buffet style and delicious, always lots of options. The river cruises were fantastic, we got really lucky and saw loads of animals (although they can't guarantee sightings obviously). You are in the jungle so obviously there are bugs and insects around, but the staff do a great job of keeping them out of the sleeping area - nets on the windows and a net over the bed, as well as cans of bug spray in the room. The bathrooms were fairly basic but clean.
I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.
