    PERFECT PLACE TO STAY”

    We had a wonderful staycation at this place. The room that we booked was really clean and comfortable. The best part was that we had our own balcony and little felines came accompanied our relaxing morning. Unfortunately, we faced electricity problem during our stay here (from midnight till morning) but the staff was helpful enough to give us hot water, so we were able to enjoy our morning coffee :) Overall this place is amazing! (just need to be ready with the uncountable stairs, but it's worth it :) Thanks Ayana!

    Everything was good. Receptionist was helpful with my queries. Good spot for you to look at Mt Kinabalu. Price was good for my 3D2N stay. Great place to spend the night if you're heading to Kundasang/Ranau. Room was clean, just be mindful of insects around the vicinity as some of the netting might have come off around the window frames..

    Cheap, awesome location/scenery, great facilities(have water heater!), pretty cat Kurik, cool ”

    1. Awesome scenery, just 1 min after Bundu Tuhan junction. Overlooking hills and mountains and valley. Maginificent 2. Very cool even in the morning till afternoon. Deadly cold at night. Prepare very very warm clothing to survive the night. 3. Beautiful landscaping, pine trees, flower beds beside stairs. Well maintained cleanliness. 4. Ok. Too much stairs though. Not for the weak. To reach our room, we had to go down through at least 9 flight of stairs consisting 20 steps each. Not baggage boy assistance provided. 5. The house is a 4x 4 rooms divided from a double storey. Our room was abit 4m x 4m in area size inclusive toilet. 5. Beds are comfy but bed sheets and pillow sheets looked dirty. Dust accumulated below beds. Sorry for 3 stars. But please clean below beds and change whiter cleaner sheets. 6. As an avid football fan, supersport 3 Astro is available and is a huge plus as ManUnited won Watford 2-1 as I saw it Live. 7. No heater provided. So get ready to embrace "The Winter is Coming". 8. Our water heater broke down, and woth a simple complaint to reception, they made swift rectifications. Changing the whole water heater set. A very big plus. Kudos. 9. Toilet is super clean and smells good. 10. Water flow though is abit on the slow side. Abit of a con as you can't get power showers. Recommend to fill bucket provided with heated water before proceeding to take a bath. 11. Sunrise view, cant see the sun but the view is breathtaking. About 6 am. 12. For cat lovers, not sure pet is allowed but the placr have their own well groomed cat with black and white fur, and yellow eyes. Her namr is Kurik. But we called her Rocky-ah(rokiah) for female cat. Hehe. She was pregnant due for labor at that time. Hoping to meet her again with her kids. She was friendly, that she followed us through the 9 stairs down and into our rooms where we fed her water and she relaxex at our doormat before her owners came and pick her up. Would show pics if this review could. Hope sh

    Great place, not suitable for the disabled”

    The place is great and pretty; and the staff were very friendly. Lovely cats were around so it was very nice! Definitely recommend! However, because of the flights of stairs, as of right now the place is not suitable for those who are not able to go up and down flights of stairs (there are not ramps as of now). Male sure to check on that before you book if any family members are disabled.

    Bad luck for us, but amazing hospitality and facility ”

    Had black outs for whole kundansang for our 1 night stay. Ayana had solar powered LED throughout the facility, making the walkway more then bright and safe for walkinv. Even the room and toilet is ready with emergency battery powered down light. Since the blackout was whole area wide, there is nothing the hotel could do, but they still managed to knock on the door to provide additional candle just in case.

Otherwise the location is excellent, with stunning sunsets and beautiful views. There is a lovely cafe next door with amazing food.
