GoldenBay Hotel Bintulu

There are quite a number of new hotels in Bintulu since my last visit there in 2014. After searching for a hotel which has a family room, I ended up with GoldenBay Hotel.

Located at Jalan Tun Razak, the hotel is sandwiched between Marine Department Bintulu Branch office and Income and Inland Revenue Board Bintulu office.

It is best to have their own transport while staying here as there are hardly any commercial areas within walking distance. Limited car park areas are available in front and the basement of the hotel. If those areas are full, the only option is at the rear open area of the hotel.

Family suite consists of a bedroom and living area. The room rate is RM 464 including tax. The family suite I got is spacious. The bedroom has 3 beds which could easily accommodate 4 person. Both the bedroom and living area is cooled by 2 units of split unit air conditioner.

Room is not cleaned on the daily basis. I guess this is almost a norm for most hotel post MCO.

Breakfast voucher is for 2 person only although my expectation the hotel could have given at least 4 vouchers for those who is staying in Family Suite. The morning breakfast buffet here is average with not much variety.

There is a small kid pool on the top floor. I did not notice any children took a dip at the pool in my 2 days stay here.

The hotel don't exactly have the best surrounding view due to its location. However, I still find its location quite strategic as it is just a short drive to Tanjung Batu and the old town.

There is no bottled water in the room. Water dispenser is readily available at the corridor.
