Stayed here for two nights as part of an organized tour. Room was very comfortable, the staff very friendly, breakfast was good, and a really good room service menu. Only issue, the air conditioning could not be adjusted so we ended up turning it off.

Thank you for your question. You can go to the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park from the Jesselton Point which is 15 minutes walking distance from the hotel. Alternatively it is a short taxi ride away at the cost of RM15.00.
