A good bargain for a family room. It's clean and well-maintained. Suitable place to put up when visiting Sandakan. Their rooms are clean and free from any noise disturbances. It's like 15 mins away from the town, but the stay is worth your time and money.

Just came back from Sandakan. I chose this Hotel because it is the nearest to the Airport. It is ok for an overnight stay. The breakfast ,well they can't cater for a big group. Quite slow in preparing the dishes. Unfortunately for me ,there are group of government guys who stay there overnight as well.

The check in was ok as not many guest upon our arrival. The rooms was so so. Nothing much surrounding area and if you don't have a car it quite difficult to move around Sandakan. The price paid is RM150nett with is not too bad with free wifi. We choose this hotel because it is quite new.
