    Really lovely staff, very helpful. Free breakfast (toast and tea and coffee) until 10am but you can help yourself and we were able to have hot drinks all day. The staff were helpful when booking a climb up Mount Kinabalu, and always smiling. A wonderful balcony that views into the forest with views of butterflies and sometimes monkeys. A lovely little chill out spot.
    Only minus is the walls are thin and the floors, so people who are noisy are a pain but there are plenty of signs asking guests to be considerate!

    ... fashion, with only a small gym session and swim perturbing the serenity of the day. For dinner, the six of us in the apartment headed to Welcome Chinese Seafood Restaurant. This is supposedly one of the top restaurants in KK. A certain novelty for me was that you chose your desired fish or other seafood directly from the multitude of tanks stacked in the restaurant window. It was slightly sad seeing the unsuspecting fish being plucked from its pond, ...

    ... battered the roof (poor Richard's beard would be sodden), but this helped to put us all to sleep quickly. We had agreed to catch the 11am boat back together, sharing the cost again and I spent the morning walking some shorter trails with Kevin and we watched the proboscis monkeys and tried to escape the naughty macaque monkeys. After we parted I was walking on my own back to the ranger's office when a king cobra slithered across my path, the German boys had ...

    So flight 2 of our little adventure, and we nearly miss the second plane too. Ok not quite so drastically as the first... We weren't the last people this time. But they had pulled the flight forward by 10 mins. Of course it was late to take off after all anyway. Got to Kota Kinabalu ok - flight was fine. But as the plane doors opened we realised how hot and humid it was. It was about 35 degrees but the ...
