We booked to stay at Sepilok B&B based on a recommendation from family who had stayed there earlier this year and we were not disappointed. We had 4 nights here in mid August and would definitely recomend it, it's basic but clean and reasonably priced.
We chose to stay in one of the deluxe rooms at 95MYR, a 'semi-detached' room with aircon and it's own private verandah. It was a surprisingly large room with bunk beds as well as a double bed which was very comfortable. Good storage space with a large wardrobe. There was a TV although we didn't actually use it so can't comment on channel availability. The room and the bathroom were very clean, towels were not provided but we carry travel towels so this wasn't a problem. Also in the room was a small two seater cane sofa which we actually carried out onto the verandah each day. On the verandah were two wooden chairs with a table between.
Location of Sepilok B&B is good, just 400m or so down the road (easily walkable in around 10 mins) from the Rainforest Discovery Centre. The Orang Utan sanctuary is around 1km up the road, taking around 20 mins to walk or the B&B would provide a taxi if required.
The restaurant was good if a little basic but all that you need for a couple of nights stay. Breakfast is included, this is do-it-yourself toast/jam with coffee/tea and fruit, you could literally eat as much as you wanted. Food prices were reasonable but the cans of soft drink were a little more expensive than elsewhere in Malaysia.
The staff were all very friendly, from the initial contact via email through the reserversation of our room, pick up from airport and service whilst we were there.
The B&B can arrange transport and trips but this is only offered when you ask the question, the additional services are not thrust on you nor any pressure applied.
There is free wi-fi in the restaurant area, this does reach some of the rooms, there is also a PC available for guest use at no charge.
The B&Bs website doesn't do it justice, it's good accomodation, a little on the basic side but good value for money and definitely worth a consideration if you're visiting Sepilok.
