Stay in Grand Margherita Hotel for 7 days from 9 Dec due to Sarawak quarantine requirements. Staff are helpful and fast in response for service recovery. Food served is cold and can be improved. Recycle bento set should not be used in this Covid 19 era. Aircon is centralised and temperature cannot be adjusted. Special thanks to Ms Reno for all her help and hospitality rendered during my stay at the hotel. Koh

Strategically located in the waterfront. A place to relax. Very pleasant room and lots of nearby good food. Connected to a shopping complex and just a walking distance to Seafood Galore Top Spot. Value for your money

Hotel is used for quarantine purpose now. Decent yet tired looking rooms. Mattress is on the hard side,nothing special. Aircond temperature control doesn't work, 15deg feels exactly the same as 28deg even and reception just dismiss the issue without sending anyone to check.

We stayed here at the beginning of our Borneo trip for 3 nights. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. They went out of there way to help us. When one member of staff couldn't answer our question because of a communication barrier, they made sure to get another member of staff to help us. The rooms were spacious and very tidy. When booking, I mentioned it was my partner's 30th birthday. We were surprised with a birthday cake in our room which was delicious!! The pool is lovely and very much needed in the heat of the day. The hotel is right on the waterfront which makes it easy to walk all the way along to the city center. There are local supermarkets and restaurants around the hotel. A little walk down from the hotel there is a little boat which you can take that gets you to the opposite side of the river. There isn't a lot other there but it was a good little boat ride. My only recommendation is do not get the hotel to book you a taxi to go anywhere. We asked them to book a taxi for us to go to the orangutans and when we started asking around we realised we got charged a lot. I know a taxi is completely different to grab but if you are on a budget, I felt grab was a safe and cheap way of travelling around.
