The Grand Margherita is a modern and clean Hotel right at the river, many Restaurants in walking distance. The pool is a bit small, but the location is great and Kuching is mostly a base for trips in the area like the National Parks.

This hotel is so much better in value for money than its neighbour, Hilton Hotel. The twin bed and room size is bigger and cheaper than Hilton Hotel. The only downside, it needs refurbishment, improvement at Orchid Garden's side in terms of food, this hotel has potentials!

Friendly staffs but failed to request return of room key. Rushed to get to airport and unhappy to be charged for the keys. Hotel slightly run down. Services were good though. Cleanliness okay. Prompt service.

We had a one night booking.com but were ahead, they were happy with a walk in and honoured the B.C rate. Good place to stay. Breakfast can be found elsewhere for less.
