If you don't want to head into Sandakan, eating at the hotel is a great alternative. We ate here twice. The second time it got a bit noisy with a crowd celebrating a birthday. Overall the ambiance is OK.

The staff are friendly, food is great, selection is international buffet. Did not manage to try the ala carte cause only stay for one night. The croissant is great and pastries too.

We stayed here so ate in the restaurant when we arrived. We went out to eat at other times but none compared with the food here. The banquet is amazing but the a la carte is wonderful too. Highly recommended.

For the offerings of restaurants at this hotel, we really enjoyed the food here. It did take ages to cook but they must have prepared it from scratch, very fresh and tasty. Lots to chose from and it was great value.
