Spectacular views. We stayed in Room 201 for a night -our room was relatively big with twin beds. Hot water heater was good. No air cond in our room; fan was working. Its main strengths is the spectacular montain views in the morning. Friendly and courteous staff, reasonably priced room, and a good chef.
This place feels a little like being in the mountains in Taiwan. There are no lifts in this accommodation though staff are very helpful and will assist with luggage up a flight of stairs and down long halls. They also addressed all other needs with great efficiency (we needed an extra mattress and hair-dryer). This is a B&B/ inn and not a hotel, so the offerings are basic and functional. There isn't a TV and air-conditioning (you don't need it in the mountains - just like you don't need wifi, which you won't get unless you're in the common areas) and the attached bathroom/ toilet has an electric heater, soap dispensers and mosaic-tiled floors. The room is quite small and space quite tight, but there is a small desk, kettle and cups with coffee & tea. We ended up placing all these on the stool tucked under the desk to make space. The bed and pillows are decent, and clean and we slept very comfortably. The fan cuts through the fluorescent lights in the room so we didn't turn on the fan. Being in the mountains, the air is crisp if you leave the windows open to let some in. Breakfasts are buffet style and very sumptuous and hearty. This place gets a "Very Good" rating mostly for the view. It is spectacular. The vibe is very friendly, casual, like being at a friends home and this friend likes their decor rustic and inspirational.…
My wife and I stayed there for two nights. For the price, the room and the amenities were disappointing. Also, when we were there, a group of students came a day later at a time when we were resting. And you know the outcome, we did not get our rest. Our room was on the ground floor and the drainage outlet of the upstairs bathroom or toilet is right above us and the plastic pipping is not covered. At night the running of water in the drainage outlet could be heard right where we were in bed. Since I am a light sleeper, I did not get a good sleep. There was only one dressing table in the room. When I needed to use my laptop, I had to remove everything on the table to the floor. That being said, the restaurant has a good chef. The steamboat we had on the second night was fantastic.
The best things about this place are the view and the friendly staffs (a shout-out to Ms. Summer whom my daughter adores so much). The room is basic, there's no tv and wifi, but hey we're in the mountains and we're supposed to enjoy the views and spend quality time with family members. If you really can't live without tv and wifi, those are available in the common area inside the hotel. Peaceful surroundings, and the dining area offers a clear magnificent view of Mount Kinabalu. Summer told us this hotel is owned and operated by a church. So it's quite amazing that they managed to upkeep the place so well. Keep up the great work Team Jabez!
I'm a frequent visitor of Jabez Resort. The rooms are normal, but comfortable enough to stay in. The staffs there are nice, friendly and helpful. They helped us to carry our luggage to our rooms. The restaurant was closed when I went there that day, so no breakfast was provided, but they refunded us the breakfast costs. Things to take note: - Bunk bed rooms doesn't have toilet attached to it. - Check-in time is on 2PM, and check-out time is on 11AM. - Remember to book for the first floor rooms, if you have any physical obstacles. -
