Stayed here for 3 nights for a base from which to climb Mount Kinabalu. The place is very well set out, affording great views of the summit and has a cafe/reasuarant serving very tasty food (although the selection is a little limited). The room size/decor was great but all chalets here are construsted of timber and are, at best, semi detached so noisy neighbours could prove a sizeable inconvenience. The climb up Mount Kinabalu itself (we opted for the 1 day, all the way up and down) was challenging but a lot of fun.If you want a greater chance of a view from the top (it was clouded over by the time we reached the top at around 1pm) then stay at the lodge around two thirds of the way up and set off to reach the summit for dawn - even then though there are no guarantees.
