Good experience overall. Wish they had better food at the cafe by the pool though. Was here for Sabah International Tattoo convention. So it was quite expensive to get rooms. The place does look a little run down but overall a good experience.

I think the location is good. There's a shopping mall nearby which you can get food and necessity easily. However, the pool is a bit too small to do swimming. And there're not enough beds for sunbathing.
