A group of us of around 26 stopped off for a quick bite to eat while travelling to the airport. The food tasted very good and it was great value for money. We had soup, a buffet main course, small cakes and Mellon for dessert, followed by coffee. Great food for a great price.

The room was big and looked out to the front of the hotel. A nice walk in shower with plenty of hot water . The restaurant was good and the serving staff so friendly. The pool looked cleaned with plenty of sun beds. My only comment was that it all looks a bit tired with peeling paint and old furniture....

My daughter was sick and we needed somewhere comfortable and safe to stay. Turned out she had chicken pox (despite being vaccinated and it was a mild dose) so we parked ourselves here for a few nights as she recovered. It was perfect. We negotiated a price at the front desk and they agreed to let all of us into...

Stayed here for 4 nights, and wanted to stay longer. The room we stayed in was great size and had a view of the pool. Bathroom had both a bath and shower and overall was really nice room. We did have a small problem with ants (possibly due to food we had in room or us coming from jungle) however...

Had a nice time with family and friend. We drove all the way from Kota Kinabalu and felt exhausted by the time we arrived. Nice welcomes from the staff and lots of area to park our rented four wheeler. Rooms was a bit dated and air circulation requires much improvement. Maybe they need to service their central unit compressor filter....

hotel looks good, but it is not that clean. it is very dated and it shows, it needs a complete refit. meals are okay but nothing to shout about. staff in the morning were a bit off and the breakfast was okay plenty of it but not a lot of choice.

The hotel has an old old world charm but is poorly maintained and lit. Toilet in the room has stains beyond repair and rectification and needs replacement. In general, the property looks like it needs a renovation.

After intensive diving on Mabul and 3-day stay in the jungle we were a little tired and before another diving week we decided to recharge our batteries in some nice place so we booked 3 days in Sabah Hotel in Sandakan and the decision couldn't have been better. It is located in a partly historical building on a hill surrounded...
