It's clean, they serve nice breakfast and it's right by the beach. Not much more to ask for. A great place to stay if you want a beach for yourself or just hang around by the bar or dinner tables and play cards and have a beer.

Room is ok, real plain basic needs provided such as hot shower, toilet, clean bedsheet & etc, but it have no TV, no telecommunication service is reach-able which really force us to really focus to relax ourselves in this beautiful place. It is really quiet in the night so everyone really get a good sleep! Electricity is weak in this...

One of not many places to spend the night at Tip of Borneo, although many places seem to be coming up. There's a small canteen with very friendly and hospitable staff. Selling slightly over priced food and drinks. My suggestion is to bring your own booze and some snacks as their variety there is very limited. Rooms as clean as...

The place was under renovation and we were given a room that was not quite ready so we didn't have a TV or closet space. Our room did not have a view of the beach. The toilet was large and modern. There was a power outage on the night we were there and we were made to understand that this...

The location is great, in front of the beach, just 10minutes walk from Tip of Borneo. You might see one of the best sunset ever...!! Rooms are comfortable. However, the staff is not very helpfull which is a shame in a lost area like that ..

I travelled with family members to Tip of Borneo, however we found ourselves trapped by heavy wind and heavy rain. So, we found shelter at Tommy's. I even got a room, so that my family members can rest while waiting for the rain to stop. It was great when Tommy's staff can accommodate our walk-in request for a room. However,...

We stayed here for three nights. It was a relaxing stay. The rooms are great, you have all you need. The prices are not so cheap, but I think for what you get, the price is reasonable, also the breakfast is included in the price, which I think is also something what should be everywhere, but saddly isn't! They also...

just enough for unwind and release stress. no one next to you and no one around. white sandy beach in front of the property. Normal and limited food. You can get some seafood supplies from Kuda town or order from them. They will cook at their restaurant with extra surcharge but seafood in kudat town is extremely cheap.!!

If you are a solo traveller or with another friend or two just to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this place is just perfect. Don't expect anything fancy of the rooms. They have towels, shampoo (tho no body wash), they do provide prepacked toothbrush and tooth paste. Don't see daily room cleaning though but it...
