Accommodations are very basic, but I wouldn't expect anything more. Rooms are for sleeping in, so no need to worry about your room! Staff is fantastic! Friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife. Saw many proboscis monkeys, 5 species of hornbills, and 4 orangutans! Great time! Loved it!

Very nice place, clear accommodation and tasty meal, the reservation was really smooth. There are nice people, all the staff there, very helpful, they picked us in Sepilok, took us to the B&B and then back to Sukau junction and morover arranged transport to Lahad Datu for a low price. Right place if you want to see wildlife, the staff know where to go, see and find animals.

Simple but great tour guides and decent food, would recommend to anyone. Saw lots of animals including orang-utans from a distance! Best thing is the guides and tours, they know what they are doing!

We had an excellent stay at Sukau Greenview B&B last couple of days! The rooms are big and clean, the staff is very friendly, the guides have a lot of knowlegde, the food is delicious and the packages are set up well (a lot of activities but still enough time to relax). We have seen a lot of different wildlife near the river & learned a lot! Thank you! 😁
