Get the rooms facing the mount Kinabalu... spectacular views! You can just sit at the balcony the whole time! Would have rated this place higher if not for the bathrooms that were not maintained very well..everything worked fine, just grime on parts of the floor and wall which I'm sure can be removed if cleaned properly! Once you turn off...

Rooms very poor... not even basic. Internet slow and food disgusting. We were traveling with Tripadeal and it was pathetic. View from some of the rooms were glorious. Rooms were musty and even dangerous in some instances.

Located in about 14 kms from the National Park entrance, Celyn Resort offers a reasonable staging point for visitors to the park or hikers to the peak. That is provided you have your own transportation. Public transport is practically unavailable to Celyn. As a returning guest, it was good to see that the resort has since renovated their bathrooms. However,...

Not sure why so many reviews are so negative about the location - yes the road up is bumpy and not in good condition, but we booked an ordinary taxi at the airport and even though he'd never been before he found it easily and took us up to the hotel. The poor road is worth it to be out...

Went as part of tour group so access was not an issue. Would be very difficult to find and get to as independent travelers due to windy, rough road.. Rooms needed a good paint and bathroom very basic. Not much hot water. The restaurant staff were friendly but the guy on reception could not have cared less. Wifi only works...

We stayed at the Celyn Resort for 1 night during a recent visit to Borneo and would NOT recommend anyone stay there. As has been noted by previous reviews, the hotel is old and dilapidated, the amenities basic and barely functional, and the rooms mouldy and musty. There was black mould throughout our room and bathroom which was a health...

Stayed one night and that was enough. The road up to hotel is in very poor condition and definitely not to be driven in the dark.On arrival there were 5 staff at reception but we were given a less than helpful greeting. Room was roughly pointed out and no effort was made to help with luggage. The restaurant is halal...

Our tour group arrived late and in fog and left in rain and fog. The Basic rooms were in cement blocks; tiny and no screens on the bathroom windows. I finally ended up in the 'honeymoon suite'. Toilet seat off, lights not working, a huge neon escape sign above the door (that light worked) and dirty sheets. Dinner dishes were...

“The Kinabalu wing overlooks Mount Kinabalu - try to get second floor. Or, if you go for a cheaper room don't worry, views still good!”
