I stayed at The LimeTree Hotel for 3 nights. My initial plan was to book a room at Pullman Hotel. However When I saw the 4.5 out of 5 rating for LimeTree with significantly lower room rates I was convinced The LimeTree Hotel was the better choice. The hotel provides airport pick up/drop off which costs 15MYR which is very reasonable. The driver was on time and the check in process was very easy and the staff were friendly and provided me with useful information. The moment I walked to my room I remembered the comments I read about how the hotel is overrated and my first impression was that those comments were actually right. While the room was tidy, big and clean, it looked pretty out of date and specially the bathroom looked like it needs a good renovation work. The hotel

Stayed for 3 nights in a twin bedded standard room. Relatively clean but room is small and toilet is also very small. Twin Beds are single, not super single size and are rather low. Hotel is located at the city centre and does not have any facilities like swimming pool or gym. It is within walking distance to the waterfront area but if you do not want to walk, just take Grab which costs only RM4 or 5. Very convenient to travel around from here - only about 20 min from airport and about 30 min to Semenggoh Orang Utan Centre. Daily breakfast is provided and is a reasonable spread for a small hotel. Soundproofing of rooms is poor. Can hear the loud closing of doors and people talking along the corridor at night. Friendly staff.

Dear Poeyyin, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am glad you found our staff to be friendly and that we are situated in a convenient city location in Kuching for your travels. For your future reference, we offer larger room types (22-58sqm) and our Front Desk team are always available to discuss our guests' room requirements. We are sorry to learn about the noise issue from other rooms; there had been an event and many guests were indeed entering in and out of their rooms more frequently than usual. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention so we can verify this matter and make the necessary improvements to our rooms and facilities. My team and I remain committed to exceed our guests' expectations with our services and to provide quality accommodation at great value with our complimentary breakfast and free internet usage for our guests. We hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the view at our rooftop lounge, one of the facilities for our guests. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you again! Best regards, Julie Tay- Resident Manager The LimeTree Hotel

Stayed 2 nights in an executive room which was quiet & well equipped and 1 night in the standard room which was more basic and noisy. The cost difference is little so go for the executive. The rooms were clean. The breakfast is ok - not up to the more expensive 4 star plus hotels but good value. The rooftop bar is great but eat dinner in the town which is a short and fun walk (or use Grab cars).

I selected this hotel based on the good reviews I read here. The hotel is very clean, decent and presentable. But we were a little bit disappointed after having stayed there. We arrived late from airport and by the time we checked in, the kitchen closed within 5 minutes. But we were told that at the rooftop bar we can get some snacks. After checking in, we went up to the roof top bar, as it was weekday, there was no crowd and proceed to order. The pizza was really bad. I understand it's only bar snack and not proper restaurant, but the pita bread they used as the base for pizza was really bad and the cheese pizza did not have much cheese on it. I could not finish my meal. But i really enjoyed the cocktail I had. The ambiance and deco of the roof top bar for 3-star hotel was

Dear sugania20, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Although your stay was overall a positive one, we are sorry to learn that your dining experience at our rooftop lounge did not meet your expectations. Our outlet team wished they had received your feedback during your meal so they could make things right for you by replacing the item immediately with other light bites e.g. pasta, fries, samosas and wings because your satisfaction as a customer is our top priority. Your comments have been shared with our kitchen and bar team for their action and improvement. We are also delighted to know you liked the atmosphere and cocktails at the rooftop lounge. My team and I remain committed to striving for excellence at all times, and it is through feedback like yours that we can monitor our standards of service, discover areas to improve and understand our guests better. We look forward to welcoming you again. Many best wishes from all of us and safe travels! Kind regards, Julie Tay - Resident Manager The LimeTree Hotel

We stayed for 3 nights in an Executive room. Room was clean and decoratively OK but lacked the ‘wow’ factor we’ve experienced in other hotels in Malaysia. Breakfast was a bit underwhelming and breakfast staff not particularly welcoming. On our first day the ‘hot’ foods were stone cold, yet 2 staff on duty who didn’t seem to notice. On the second day we order fried eggs x2 which didn’t appear until about 20 minutes after ordering and these were cold when they arrived. There seems to be a disconnection between the kitchen and dining room staff. We made use of the top floor bar which was reasonably priced during their 4-8pm happy hour. So in summary, this is hotel is OK for budget conscious travellers but based on past TA reviews were were expecting a bit more than the overpowering
