I'd had the chance to stay over for free during a 3-days course I had the privilege of attending. The staff members were nice. My aunt and I got a Standard Double bedroom on the 3rd floor facing the waterfront. Was mildly surprised of how spacious the room was. It was also clean and includes a TV set, a mini... More

Stopped in Lawas town overnight on way from Brunei to Sabah with a group of 35. Hotel was ok but a bit run down. Rooms were OK. Had good buffet dinner with group. Breakfast was average. Nice Location by the river.

For anyone planning to drive between Brunei and Kota Kinabulu, you will need to plan an overnight stop as the 6 passport controls/border crossings will exhaust you. After a lot of research by far the best option was Seri Hotel, Lawas. Lovely staff, very reasonable price, tired hotel but the great breakfast and multi skilled head chef was amazing.
