The location is perfect, view overlooking waterfront is excellent. Overall it is neat and well-maintained except the bathroom floor in master bathroom doesn't drain well. The outside toilet is noisy and needs looking into. It needs another lift cos sometimes it is too crowded and had to wait long.

1st i want to complaint about room, in my reservation suppose to be 1 Queen bed n 2 single bed, but when i chk in , they gave me 1 king bed n 1 single bed. I have children which i suppose to place them for 2 single bed. But i was given 1 single bed. At last my children hv to slept on the floor. I am so dissapointed with the answer from Front liner, she said the room was given based on availablity the what happened to my booking... I already request for 1 queen n 2 single bed?! And one more problem, no fridge inside apartment. The hotel really need to improve and renew old thing.... I am so so so dissappointed with my room reservation , the apartment look very old and unattended and gave to me and my family. Plus we are celebrating my son's birthday. I really the management can looked into this matter. Just because im local sarawakian they gave me bad apartment to stay and so not comfortable. I was charged when i request for extra pillow n blanket which im already request 2 single bed but gave 1 single bed. So unfair and im so dissappointed !!
