I stayed at Lavender Lodge from 8th to 11th Apr 2009. I had the chance to stay in 2 rooms during the stay. Though same rate for both rooms but facilities (eg.bed & other furnitures) are different. Both rooms seemed clean by a glance; 1st room is carpeted whereas I could feel a layer of dust when stepping on the concrete floor of 2nd room (I was moved to the 2nd room because the staff wanted to give the room to their regular customer. The shared toilets/bathrooms are indeed clean & the staff are quite friendly.
I stayed in Lavender Lodge from 2nd July to 9th July 2008. I was greatly satisfied. The room is very clean. The shared toilets/bathrooms are surprisingly very clean too, because the staff clean uo them so frequently. The lodge is well located in the centre. The boss and his staff are highly friendly and helpful. They offer excellent service: breakfast included, coffee, tea and iced water offered all the day, free internet.. They even offer free airport pick-up. My flight arrived in KK at 22H30 and I was picked up at airport! A high grade hotel service. What can you expect more for such a budget hotel.
"Don't judge a hotel with its outlook". Lavender Lodge is a newly operated lodge that has excellent service. I had booked the family rooms for my in-laws and my family. They had offered a free airport pick up ( when I informed them in advance ). I arrived at the lodge and it was great. The staffs greet us with a smile and handed the key for the room. The room is clean and well-kept. There are internet access, 2 dining tables for food, TV for entertainment. The washrooms and bathrooms are clean. They had everything to offer for budget travellers.
They also helped to find a car rental service, which is in reasonable price. They gave guidelines on tourist attrations and road directions.
The location is strategic. There is a food court, which offer seafood, Japanese food and local delights. Beers too.
The Philiphine market and Gaya street are within walking distance. My kids enjoy the seaview with fishermen boats loading the fresh catch of the day.
I am totally satisfied with the stay.
To be truthful, I did not know what to expect when I booked my vacation to Kota Kinabalu. I was looking for some sun and some beach and a relaxing time. When I booked my accommodations at Lavender Lodge through their website, I was immediately responded to by Daniel who said that he would pick me up from the airport. What service! When I arrived, he was there just as he said and the drive to the Lodge was no more than 15 minutes. The lodge is located right in the city centre - making it convenient to get to everything you need to get to. The rooms were clean and the staff were extremely friendly. It was the staff that informed me of the many other things to do in Sabah. It is an adventure seekers paradise. While my main goal was to just lie on a beach, I could not resist getting out to one of the activities in the interior and I visited Mount Kinabalu park and Poring Hot Springs - which was booked through the lodge. Overall, this was a great trip and the Lavender Lodge certainly helped. I don't think I have stayed in a hostel/lodge that was more clean and staffed with more friendly people - and the price is hard to beat. If you like absolute peace and quiet though, the city centre may not be for you - most of the lodges/hostels are in the city centre so I can't imagine any of those would be much better.
