Clean & comfortable room, terrible service
I treated myself to one night at the lodge before departing Kota Kinabalu. I stayed in a "twin shared" room - 2 twin beds with a shared bathroom. The room was small and simple, but the bed was very comfortable and the room was impeccably clean. The bathroom was spotless as well. I also enjoyed the buffet breakfast in the morning. The major negative I experienced was the front desk service - it was the most comically terrible service I experienced during 2 months in Southeast Asia. From check in to check out, everything was a disaster. So bring lots of patience! Also note that they require a $20 key deposit (cash only yet no ATM on site), which I never have experienced at any hotel or hostel anywhere else in the world. I also think the price is quite inflated for what you get - basically $60/night for a hostel-quality room and terrible service - but since they're the only option on the mountain, you really are paying for the location.

Beautiful place, pleasant stay -- but confusing!
Pros: We booked what we thought was one room with two twin beds and an ensuite, and it turned out to be half of a cabin: two rooms, each with two twin beds, a bathroom, full kitchen, fireplace, living room, and porch with an amazing view of Mt. Kinabalu. We had a wonderfully pleasant stay here. The food was much better than expected. Skip the buffet dinner and go to the a la carte dinner place instead (and try a steamboat, yum!). Cheaper AND tastier. Cons: is very confused about what and where this hotel is. I had printed my booking, and we drove to Kinabalu National Park with it. We stopped inside the park to ask someone if they had any idea where this hotel we booked was (that seems to have no real name, and no real address), and the locals had no idea. We called the hotel phone number, but nobody picked up. Eventually, the hotel inside the park in which we were inquiring found our name in their list and said that the reservation was with them! It's not hard to find; it's only hard to find because is so confused about it. It's the Sutera Harbour Resort inside Mt. Kinabalu National Park. Also, it's a shame the room types are so messed up online as well: while pleasantly surprised with lots of room, we wish we'd known we had a whole cabin with an extra room, because we would have brought friends! But, bottom line: book here. Definitely the nicest and most convenient accommodation around. I was very glad we stayed here.

Pleasant stay with beautiful weather
The stay was pleasant and enjoyable. The Nepenthes chalet might require a bit of upgrade in its toilet especially on the plumbing. Toiletries ie soap for bathing and toilet roll were inadequate for 4 persons staying in a chalet.
