Stayed here for two nights as our homestay was double booked. The rooms are accommodated in small cabins on stilts in a pleasant garden of palm trees (not again). All rooms have a balcony and ensuite bathroom. It cost us 70RM per night for a double room with fan There's outdoor seating and a nice restaurant area. Free tea and coffee, but breakfast of 4 rounds of bleached white plastic bread and a egg wasn't too exciting. Neither were the lunches, which were not as good as our homestay, but not bad.

I stayed for three nights. Room is basic with air condition, fan and attached bathroom. Staff is attentive. Meals are simple but delicious. I was there to conduct a photography workshop. I think we needed a bit more power points to charge our batteries and laptop in our rooms and the main hall. There is no daily Housekeeping but would be good to have someone clean the room for longer staying guest. Overall the place is no frills but nice ambience.

Great value for money. Cabins are simple but comfortable. The ambience of the place is special - at the price this is not only by far the best value in Sukau, it's possibly the nicest place to stay. Excellent guides have a passion for salvaging what's left of the wild Kinabatangan River.

Stayed 2 nites with 4 of my senior guests from USA. The staff was simply very accommodating & helpful. Though d B&B provided simple breakfast, u can always tell them about providing other alternative breakfast e.g. fried rice or fried noodle esp.if u r Asian. Had 3 river cruises with them n their boatman Mus aka Tayong was so delightful n very good in mimicking Monkeys n birds' call. D prearranged lunches & dinners for my guests were excellent & delicious & d cook was most accommodating when 2 of my guests' had food allergies & she made sure it was taken care. D restaurant now has wifi but u will hv to pay RM5.00 /day. The rooms also have improved with an option to pay for fan or air-con.
