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!

We were put next to a group of girls who were hitting strikes every time whilst me and sharif we lucky to knock down half the pins! ...
We had an early start this morning in order to get to the orangutan rehabilitation centre at the Rasa Ria nature reserve, which is in the grounds of a very nice hotel, for 9.30 am. Grace and I were very excited for today! Once we arrived, there was an educational video about the centre and how they rehabilitate orphaned baby orangutans ready for life back in the wild. It's a two part process with the final stage of rehabilitation occurring at ...
