Good view, very quiet, decent food and friendly staff. Highly recommended for business travellers who want a quiet place to rest at the end of the day. TV could have more selections but you can't have everything I suppose.

Went to this hotel for a trip, it has good view from room window, good breakfast, vast swimming pool, plenty parking space, and spacious room. The only bad thing is the one that should be the highlight of a hotel: the bed. Its hard as a rock. The hardest bed i've ever slept in a hotel.

If you are a health conscious consumer, you may not choose the Friday Night Sizzling Buffet Dinner. Why I said "Not health conscious" or "Not well trained" ? Firstly, FRYING PAN for stir fried spaghetti. They are using a non-stick wok (the cheapest non-stick wok with no brand), all the non-stick surface have been peeled off. And still, of course...

You are limited for hotel choice in Sandakan, this was for a business trip and an acceptable place to be based from. Service a little slow on checkout (due to restaurant discount not being applied). Breakfast was good. Chinese Restaurant was excellent. Main restaurant for evening meals - fair quality. Room was spacious - a little dated in decor, bathroom...

Our tour organiser, Borneo Eco Tours, took us and some other guests to this hotel for lunch. The service was polite, the food was tasty, albeit not a massive choice of dishes. I wouldn't have a problem eating there again if I was in the area.

This is quite an old hotel but the room is spacious. I enjoyed relaxing in the bath tub, mostly new and modern hotels will not have. Breakfast was okay. Not the best but not bad either. Only that lack of entertainment in the hotel even on a Saturday night, there was no place to get a drink because the bar...

I was aware that the hotel is old by reviewing the comments of others, however i have also noticed that the hotel team members must have served for a very long time. Usually, the more you serve at hospitality the better you are but its opposite in this hotel. I have not seen a single smile from the hotel till...

I always take my biking friend to the Sabah Hotel when over in Sandakan. The rooms are large, as are the comfy beds. After a long trip, is great to relax in the swimming pool and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

I used to stay either in this hotel or at another similar standard big hotel in downtown area when I visit Sandakan but to my dismay this year the standard of the hotel has gone down. First, is the breakfast buffet which now hardly got anything to eat, no more harsh brown, no more bacon, less fresh fruit, no more...

We spent 5 days in this wonderful hotel. We travelled with kids so needed a place where the little ones had a good time as well. The whole building is beautiful, the rooms are specious, clean and comfortable, but the greatest thing in the hotel is the pool. All of us enjoyed swimming and splashing in it, including our very...
