We stay there for two nights. The breakfast was good, the room was clean, the showers were clean and toilets were ok. But the quality of bed mattresses and pillow are not good. I could not sleep because the yogi is not real yogi but some foam.

Date of stay: June 2019

We actually ended up staying about 8 nights with gaps in between as we explored the surrounding places (Kinabatangan river, turtle island, sepilok etc) which were all easy to get to. The friendliest staff make you feel so at home, great eggs for breakfast. Perfectly clean rooms which are absolutely huge and the best location for teaching restaurants and the mall.
