A room with a viewPosted 09 28, 15 on Hotels
We went to the Peak Lodge in 2012 and decided to go again this year, with my parents this time. There were 7 of us so we booked 2 lodges (4 rooms altogether). The view was beautiful, the staff very friendly and we enjoyed the spacious, clean rooms. The lodge next to ours was being renovated but we could not hear any noises from the works which was great. Overall, a wonderful experience and a must try for those who had not been there.

A lovely hotel in a stunning locationPosted 09 21, 15 on Hotels
Lovely hotel. Great friendly staff who can't do enough to help. Goal is actually within the Kinabalu national park. With lots of trails and places to explore.

レストランに近くて便利Posted 02 15, 15
Location: 宿の近くにはLingwan restaurantというレストランがあります。 公園事務所近くにあるバルサムカフェはビュッフェ形式のレストランですが、リンワンはメニューを注文する形式です。メニューにない料理でも、食材があれば、調理してくれます。
公園内の宿泊施設のうち、Rock Hostelに宿泊しました。 部屋は２段ベッドが２つのドミートリタイプですが、暖炉のそなえられたリビングと調理場があります。 宿の調理場には電気ポットはありますが、鍋は見かけなかったので、食事を安く済ませるなら、鍋と食材を準備したらよいかと思います。 ４人部屋なので、複数の友人、家族と予約すれば、他の客と相部屋になることはないでしょう。

In general, I like it very much.Posted 01 17, 15 on Hotels
I stayed in Liwagu Suite and I like the room very much!! The only problem is you cannot take a long shower caused hot water becomes cold quickly. And the restaurant provides the free breakfast is 20 min walk away from the Suite. Other than that, it was perfect!! Service is good and room is very very nice! I would rate it 5 if above two problems can be solved.

Park lodge that exceeds expectationsPosted 01 8, 15 on Hotels
Stayed in one of the liwagu suites tor one night before hiking Mount Kinabalu. Room was very nice and exceeded my expectations for a park lodge. The room was very spacious and we could have easily stayed another night to properly enjoy the comforts it provided. Our room featured a nice balcony area and the bed was located upstairs in a loft area. Staff were helpful during our stay and we were able to access the free transport service to move between different areas of the lodge.

Clean & comfortable room, terrible servicePosted 12 11, 14 on Hotels
I treated myself to one night at the lodge before departing Kota Kinabalu. I stayed in a "twin shared" room - 2 twin beds with a shared bathroom. The room was small and simple, but the bed was very comfortable and the room was impeccably clean. The bathroom was spotless as well. I also enjoyed the buffet breakfast in the morning. The major negative I experienced was the front desk service - it was the most comically terrible service I experienced during 2 months in Southeast Asia. From check in to check out, everything was a disaster. So bring lots of patience! Also note that they require a $20 key deposit (cash only yet no ATM on site), which I never have experienced at any hotel or hostel anywhere else in the world. I also think the price is quite inflated for what you get - basically $60/night for a hostel-quality room and terrible service - but since they're the only option on the mountain, you really are paying for the location.

Beautiful on the mountainPosted 10 12, 14
We had rain and wind, so we really enjoyed the fire place in the house. Nice park, easy to walk around, great food (simple but good), nice villages around etc.

superb location but expensivePosted 08 30, 14 on Hotels
The location in mount Kinabalu park is unbeatable. Rooms are large and comfortable. However, the price tag is quite high for the quality of service. The breakfast buffet had cockroaches running between dishes, not for the faint hearted... also, quite annoyed by the fact that the hotel didn't have my reservation and asked me to pay again for my stay... luckily, i had a proof of payment on my booking.

Beautiful place, pleasant stay -- but confusing!Posted 04 18, 14 on Hotels
Pros: We booked what we thought was one room with two twin beds and an ensuite, and it turned out to be half of a cabin: two rooms, each with two twin beds, a bathroom, full kitchen, fireplace, living room, and porch with an amazing view of Mt. Kinabalu. We had a wonderfully pleasant stay here. The food was much better than expected. Skip the buffet dinner and go to the a la carte dinner place instead (and try a steamboat, yum!). Cheaper AND tastier. Cons: hotels.com is very confused about what and where this hotel is. I had printed my booking, and we drove to Kinabalu National Park with it. We stopped inside the park to ask someone if they had any idea where this hotel we booked was (that seems to have no real name, and no real address), and the locals had no idea. We called the hotel phone number, but nobody picked up. Eventually, the hotel inside the park in which we were inquiring found our name in their list and said that the reservation was with them! It's not hard to find; it's only hard to find because hotels.com is so confused about it. It's the Sutera Harbour Resort inside Mt. Kinabalu National Park. Also, it's a shame the room types are so messed up online as well: while pleasantly surprised with lots of room, we wish we'd known we had a whole cabin with an extra room, because we would have brought friends! But, bottom line: book here. Definitely the nicest and most convenient accommodation around. I was very glad we stayed here.
