Good 7.6 From 17 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great hotel with personality to boot
This hotel has great personality. The decor makes it feel like a special place and the rooftop bar and restaurant are not to be missed (a bit pricey, but definitely worth a visit for a sundowner). The staff at were very polite and helped us arrange an inexpensive ride to the airport. My only complaint would be that there is no wi-fi in the rooms, but the connection in the lobby is strong so this didn’t pose too much of a problem. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely place - big comfortable rooms
We really enjoyed this place. The decor was fun and interesting, and the room was big, airy and comfortable. As they were not busy they kindly upgraded our room without windows to a room with windows and sea view. The breakfast is fantastic in the cool cafe downstairs, but the booking doesn't even say it includes breakfast (NAK - you should show this on your bookings - it is a great selling point!) The restaurant on the rooftop is cool (used mainly by the rich kids of Sandakan rather than hotel guests). I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again
