Hotel is used for quarantine purpose now. Decent yet tired looking rooms. Mattress is on the hard side,nothing special. Aircond temperature control doesn't work, 15deg feels exactly the same as 28deg even and reception just dismiss the issue without sending anyone to check.

We stayed here at the beginning of our Borneo trip for 3 nights. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. They went out of there way to help us. When one member of staff couldn't answer our question because of a communication barrier, they made sure to get another member of staff to help us. The rooms were spacious and very tidy. When booking, I mentioned it was my partner's 30th birthday. We were surprised with a birthday cake in our room which was delicious!! The pool is lovely and very much needed in the heat of the day. The hotel is right on the waterfront which makes it easy to walk all the way along to the city center. There are local supermarkets and restaurants around the hotel. A little walk down from the hotel there is a little boat which you can take that gets you to the opposite side of the river. There isn't a lot other there but it was a good little boat ride. My only recommendation is do not get the hotel to book you a taxi to go anywhere. We asked them to book a taxi for us to go to the orangutans and when we started asking around we realised we got charged a lot. I know a taxi is completely different to grab but if you are on a budget, I felt grab was a safe and cheap way of travelling around.

The hotel looks tired from the outside but do not judge a book by its cover. The staff are great. I stayed three nights and due to COVID 19 situation had to book an extra night after checking out so had a different room. The quality of the rooms is very good. The pool area is excellent and the dining breakfast very good. Due to being confined to room service the rib eye steak and salmon meals were excellent. It is in the perfect central location in downtown Kuching and the room rate was cheap. I met travellers from Australia and UK who have been coming back to stay at the same hotel every year three times a year because the staff, management and quality never change. Get a room looking out over the river

From the outside this hotel looks like a rundown but step inside its actually well managed. Friendly staffs, comfy bed and easy access, waling distance to most of amenities around it, this hotel is quite bang of your buck. Couple of things preventing me from giving better review is the noise from next room through the connecting door, i can hear the guy snore, sneeze and moving around. Also i turned off the A/C and blocked the door's gap on the floor but its still cold.
