The view fronting the river was majestic! The hotel room was very spacious and half of the hotel was also undergoing renovation upgrade. We had the opportunity to stay in both the un-renovated classic suite and the modern newly furnished suite. Both were equally spacious. Location is very central to the older part of the city with the classic oldtown...

The Grand Margherita is a modern and clean Hotel right at the river, many Restaurants in walking distance. The pool is a bit small, but the location is great and Kuching is mostly a base for trips in the area like the National Parks.

This hotel is so much better in value for money than its neighbour, Hilton Hotel. The twin bed and room size is bigger and cheaper than Hilton Hotel. The only downside, it needs refurbishment, improvement at Orchid Garden's side in terms of food, this hotel has potentials!
