Sabah Hotel Sandakan, Sandakan
Room was comfortable and clean but a bit dated. Not within walking distance of anything & food within hotel was terrible. Didn't use it but there's a nice, large pool.

Can not recommend Sabah Hotel
First impressions of the Sabah Hotel were great. Fantastic area & surroundings, elegance, appearance. The room was spacious and well laid out. However it all went downhill from there. - Service was basically non-existent. Was told to make my own phone reservations, but I could only do that after they remembered to activate the phone. - The bed was rock hard. - The restaurant manager was a nightmare, and overbearing. - The food was poor, and overpriced in comparison with other places. - The food service was even worse. My wife finished her meal before I received my meal. Noticed that the same thing happened to another table. - Was requested to sign for our meal at the restaurant, even though I paid cash. - Was not able to consume alcohol in the restaurant, and therefore had to eat outside in the heat and with the mosquitos. - Would prefer milk for my coffee, and not the "creamer". Definitely not a 4 star establishment.

An older hotel but very comfortable and fabulous pool. A little further out of town than the other hotels but a beautiful setting and not too far to walk or grab a taxi to the centre.Very quiet
