I stayed there on a ground floor room in September so that we could go to see the Rafflesia flowers. The rooms are small and basic, but reasonably clean with plenty of hot water.The bed was comfortable. My room was next to reception and hence noisy due to the phone ringing and friends of the receptionist standing chatting to him...

Since Tambunan is not exactly on the tourist radar, places to sleep are rather limited in Tambunan. The Tambunan Inn is an excellent option in the middle of town. After discount, we paid 60 MYR for the large family room (with bathroom and aircon). The room was spacious and clean. WIFI only available close to the lobby. Apart from the...

The stay was perfect especially due to convenient location for trips arround, especially as concerns trips to Crocker Range and Trus Madi. A more than helpful owner could make the trips even more efficient. Just next to (mini)bus stops and some local restaurants and shops.

We traveled from Brunei to Sabah for few days and Tambunan was a place we really wanted to explore. And so by finding some info on Tripadviser and some other resources we managed to book a room via phone a day ahead, turned out to be a good idea as the place was almost full. Mr Yabin, who's running that...

“We had booked family room, second floor. Little-bit airless and dusty. Clean linen, hot showers, OK for one night sleep.”
