The Ria was fine for a 1-night stay. It was clean, bed was comfy, location was very central, staff was friendly and helpful, cafe was ok. Our biggest issue was that our room was a smoking room and smelled quite strongly. When we asked for a non-smoking room, we were told all the rooms are the same (and given some...

try their milk tea! it's good! the location is perfect. this is the usual meet up point for those going to the hostels/hotels at the tip of borneo. a nice place to relax and eat while waiting. the toilet is clean and the food is good. WIFI is slow though.

Kudat basically as everybody said, is a very small town. Therefore, this hotel probably considered as one of the best hotel in Kudat. Please don't expect 5 star hotel experience here and it would be unfair to do so. This small hotel got most of the things that you may need, however, I do suggest guest bring their own towel....

Ria Hotel beautifully complements Kudat. Like the town itself, it's not overly fancy, nor is it bursting with amenities. Then again, Kudat is not the kind of place you go to if you want a Ritz Carlton experience! The rooms are clean, cosy and comfortable, though the air conditioning can sometimes take quite a long time to really cool down...

basically kudat is a very small town and very limited choice of hotels in twon. they have Marina resort, upperdeck and some other backpacker hotels. I stayed all 3 type of hotels in kudat, for comfy and cleanness strongly suggest go with Ria Hotel. unless you want to swim. Ria offer Jacuzzi inside their family suite also.
