“A good budget option”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

It isn't luxury and feels a little dated but it is certainly nicer than staying in a hostel. The pool is lovely but not all that clean. The rooms are comfortable with en suite hot water bathrooms, tv and tea and coffee making facilities.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less traffic noise.

I was a little unsure of staying here after reading a few reviews, but I needn't have worried.

The staff were always friendly, helpful, and accommodating of any requests we made. The room was VERY outdated, but it was comfortable and quiet, plus you don't come here to spend all the time in your room! The pool was lovely, and in nice surroundings.

Breakfast was not included in the price, but it was cheap ($6 for the breakfast pictured) and pretty good. There aren't many restaurants nearby, but the hotel one was delicious and pretty cheap.

Wifi only worked in the lobby, but comfy seats for it.

The location is excellent, just a short stroll to the Royal Regalia Museum, and then on to "downtown" Bandar Seri Begawan. While there isn't a huge amount to do in BSB, if you're here for a quick stopover, Terrace is perfect as it is convenient to the most interesting sites (mosque, museum, water village).

Organise your airport pick-up/drop-off through the hotel as it will only be $15 as opposed to $25.

Room Tip: Ask for the poolside of the hotel to avoid traffic noice - not that BSB is particularly busy for tra...

Very ordinary hotel but fine if you're after an inexpensive overnighter.

This hotel has definitely seen better days, but it's the cheapest option if you want to stay in central Bandar Seri Begawan. If you are the fastidious type, you probably will find flaws in the room and hotel, as it is not luxury and could probably use a bit of a facelift. There are nicer hotels in town, but they will cost at least $30-40 more (e.g. the Radisson next door is more than double in price). Staff were always friendly and helpful to me, often providing me with maps as well as walking/bus directions (there is a bus across the street which will take you to the airport in under half hour). The room was small but clean, the air conditioning very cold. Remote control for TV available at reception. Includes small swimming pool and breakfast (choice of several set menus, western and asian). I had the egg, sausage, toast, fruit and coffee set, which was OK for me. Breakfast staff were friendly to me as well. Fitness room available for extra charge. Restaurant rather dark dreary and desolate outside of breakfast, but I did try the fish curry, and thought it was OK as well. Hotel about a 10-15 minute walk to town center.
