I used to love chilling at your rooftop lounge with its fantastic view n great service. Unfortunately today, perhaps by bad luck, i was scolded by an old rude male staff named SOH due to mere petty issue. He was being mannerlessly sarcastic over my short feedback in which every well-known hotel should be at the very least care for.... More

Dear Legendary91, My team and I were truly disappointed to learn of your review and we read your less-than-satisfactory experience with great concern. I have taken time and care to verify this matter with Mr Soh, our hotel manager. According to him, your laptop was found to be charging at one of the outdoor power sockets, which essentially were not... More

Organised a toddle's birthday party here and the food was excellent, vegetables were well prepared. Service was friendly and up to mark with continuous and prompt interaction during the period leading up to the event. Simple, yet clean hotel accommodation. Value for money.

Evening drinks at the LimeLight rooftop bar became something of a ritual for us during our stay at this nice boutique hotel - not just because of the choice of beer, wine, cocktails, soft drinks and snacks, but also because of the atmosphere and the local city views. But what really made it for us was the fact that the... More

A very pleasant place to have a cocktail and enjoy the breeze at sunset. A good selection of beer and cocktail. Some finger food are available. Good service and prices are reasonable.

Great view from the top floor Over the city and towards the river. Excellent service. They also serve food although we only had the Happy Hour gin & tonic which tasted a little strange possibly because the gin was a local brew and didn't resemble anything we were used to. Didn't stop us drinking it though and we came back... More

Located on top of the Lime Tree hotel, this lounge & bar is ideal to have a sip after a hot day walking around town or after an excursion while enjoying the fresh evening breeze and overlooking the city skyline.

This is a great spot for a beer. Although if it is just 5th floor, it gives you a nice view over Kuching. Worth a visit.

The lime juice we had as part of our stay was excellent. Cocktails were ok, food was not great (chicken chop didn't live up to my hopes). Good spot is right against the edge, but don't eat dinner in that spot after dark - the neon lights make your food look unappetising.
