Rest before the jungle.
Pavilion provided us with a place to recovver from the 38 hour journey. It was peaceful and located near real local cuisine. I will stay there on my next Bornio trek.

it could be better
Just an average stay. Good enough for traveler on tight budget. Cleanliness and room conditions not up to my expectation.

The Pavilion Hotel, Sandakan
A fiasco.
Our reservation was not found upon check-in - sadly, the hotel somehow "misplaced" our booking. That being said, they did put us up in a family room - however, the room they gave us had quite a few issues. The wallpaper was peeling, the ceiling vents were left open & aircon was merely blowing chilled air (instead of being cold). The bathroom, frankly, smelled as if it hasn't been cleaned in ages. The next morning, the hotel restaurant had to check with the front desk as to our free breakfast (as we were not in the guest list!) Somehow, it was all resolved upon checkout as the front desk "miraculously" found our booking. Needless to say, it was NOT a good stay. The only redeeming quality? The wifi.

Best option near the airport
Place was great and right next to the airport. The staff was helpful but got our shuttle to the airport late even though we told them 3 times to have it ready at a certain time and it came in with 10 min delay. The wifi was also a bit faulty. Overall, I would recommend if you want to be close to the airport for an early flight. Great restaurants next door too.

Great location and helpful staff
Great hotel and they offered a free shuttle service to local attractions and supermarket. There is also a free shuttle to the airport. And also a massage service in the lobby. Free bottled water too!
