I recently returned form a nine day Easter holiday with my husband and parents in Sabah. We decided to stay at Le Meridien following a really good holiday at another hotel in the chain and as we wanted a city location and the position of this hotel was ideal for us.
Having experienced the Club Offering in Mauritius we didn't consider anything else and were very pleased with our choice. We had fantastic views of the South China Sea and the fascinating night markets from our spacious, peaceful well appointed rooms- there was never a dull moment. The free wi-fi was also very handy.
The service in the Club Lounge was charming and attentive and the complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and sundowners and canapes in the evening were beautifully presented and of course we could not get enough of the view. In fact the service throughout our stay, from house-keeping, the concierge desk and the bar was exemplary. However Flames Restaurant deserves a special mention- we ate there on our first night as we were tired after a plane delay and were very impressed so we went back for our final dinner. Our waitress was absolutely lovely- so friendly and enthusiatic and the food on both occaisions was delicious.

The only tiny criticisms I have is that our key cards kept de-activating- lucky we were so close to the Club Lounge as we had to pop back on a fairly frequent basis to get them fixed and that the bed and pillows were a bit hard for our liking. However a quick call to Housekeeping resulted in delivery of different pillows and a soft mattress pad in a trice- as I said great service.

Room Tip: Go for a Club room with an ocean view

Thank you for the full marks following your experience staying at our Le Meridien Club level. I have reviewed with the team the issues of the key card not functioning as well as a more proactive approach in offering a selection of pillows to provide that extra comfort.
Our ladies looking after Flames are gems and I will make sure they will be seeing your review.
Kindest regards,
Alex

Fantastic when comparing to other hotels in this area, however not as good as some of the Le Meridiens I have stayed at. Hotel is good for a 4 star rating. Rooms were nice and clean but not super modern. Service was first class and breakfast was unbelievably good! The cocktails are also worth a mention! mmm I think this is a safe option for Kota Kinabalu, and the hotel is well located.

Thank you for sharing your pleasant experience and your compliments on our service and breakfast. Our classic design will certainly be reviewed in the future when our guest rooms will be refurbished to give it a more contemporary Le Meridien feel.
It is great to know you will return and recommend us.
Regards,
Alex

We stayed on the club floor which is probably a wise move. The hotel is very central and comfortable. It has a nice pool but could do with a bit more shade areas as the sun is quite intense. Plenty of restaurants to choose from but also a city full of fine food to discover

Room Tip: Aim for a waterfront room

Good hotel, spacious room, helpful and polite service staff, but it needs some redecoration and/ or refurbishments, currently looking a little bit used and abused. Rating should be lower than displayed 5* and definitely, price the same.

Room Tip: Higher floors (11, 12) are on the Club category.

Thank you for your review. I am certainly disappointed that we were only partially able to compensate your sentiments on the hotel decor with the good service and other pluses.
I still hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.
Kindest regards,
Alex
