This place is perfect for nature lovers. living here is very close to the greenery of nature. every morning you will hear the chirping of birds flying. It is also one of the hot attractions for bird lovers. there are many birds that can be found here. This place is also close to the Rainforest Discovery Center, only a 5-10 minute walk away. Here you can do Night Walk activities in the evening. The variety you will see at this time. For the Sepilok Orang Utan Center,just 5minute by car and walking is about 15-20minutes. Here you can see closely the Orang Utan. Front of the place is Borneon Sunbear Conservation Center. Here I have some picture from Google. Because I dont have much picture for the place. Only the tree it front of the cafe at Sepilok Bnb that it my own. Don't forget to have a time to visit the place while you are in Sandakan Sabah.

We only stayed one night. Really closed to Rainforest discovery Centre (5minutes walk) and 15 minutes from Orangutans and Bears. Very friendly staff. Good food. Spacious chalet. We were in S1. Nothing to complain about. Thanks

The surrounding jungle is beautiful and if you’re looking for a fabulous location, from which to visit the Orangutan & Sun Bear Centres, you’re perfectly placed at Sepilok B&B. It’s amazing value for money and the staff couldn’t do enough for us - huge thank you to them for making it such a pleasant stay.

We had delicious lunch served by friendly staff under pleasant canopy with roof fans to keep us cool in the hot humid conditions, the property is set in beautiful grounds close to jungle. The accommodation looked good although we were only there for lunch.

Staff is really friendly and attentive, huge plus for that. They do have a laundry service but our shirts came back totally crinkled ( so no ironing included). Breakfast is ok, you get some toast, can order eggs, there is butter, coffee, tea and lime juice which I liked. I suggest to offer also milk because not everybody likes creamer in his coffee, real milk would be great. The room we stayed in was huge, cleanliness average, some stains on the sheets and spider webs, but that was not our problem. The mattress is hard as stone, impossible to sleep, I even took a mattress from the bunk bed to put it additionally on the other bed but did not help. AC works but not really well, there is also a fan on the ceiling but it was soooo hot in the room. There is nothing to do , really nothing, except visiting the Orang Utans or Rainforest Center, so a working wifi would be great, but it does not work. You can order lunch at dinner there at given times, food was ok, but portion size really small. For one night ok, I would not stay longer. But again staff is super friendly and lovely.
