Positive Reviews

Spacious, modern rooms, sea views

True to its name, those staying on upper floors were pleased to find that this property offers panoramic views of the adjacent bay.

Good location, handy for sea and shopping

This property was popular with guests because of its proximity to the city's numerous jetties and ferry terminal. In fact, for many, this accommodation proved to be a handy base from which to explore the multiple islands which comprise Sabah's Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park. For guests who preferred shopping to sailing, the property's proximity to several shopping malls provided easy access to retail therapy.

Accommodating staff, good shuttle service

Negative Reviews

Housekeeping could be improved

Housekeeping proved to be problematic here. Indeed, many guests reported less than clean rooms and dirty sheets as well as hair on pillows.

Loose wires and fixtures

The overall finish of rooms left a lot to be desired. Loose wires, plugs, sockets and fittings were noted by a high number of guests.

Slow Wi-Fi and repetitive breakfast

The Wi-Fi was one final point of contention, with numerous guests reporting that this service was intermittent at best. The breakfast selection here was also found to be repetitive.
