Kuching was a delightful break from the full-on urbanised totality of Singapore.
Our only complaint was that the Japanese meal at the hotel was far to expensive and was not of a high standard for a Japanese meal.
Advice Dont stay in for the meal. But the hotel was great.
Very enjoyable experience. Polite helpful staff who bent over backwards to help. Clean and comfortable living spaces. Good food. Reasonably priced.
The only snag was that Expedia did not communicate our booking appropriately to them and we had to wait while they sorted it out. About 15 min, but they kept us informed and gave us a complimentary drink and looked after us well in the interim.
My friend and I recently stayed at the Lime Tree for several nights. We were both very impressed by the quality of service provided by the staff. In particular the reception staff should be complemented for their patience, good humour and helpfulness. It appeared nothing was too much trouble. When we required additional assistance, that was provided by a maintenance man or a cleaning staff member promptly and with courtesy. The breakfast service and food was exceptional. The rooms and beds were very clean and comfortable.
Exceptional value for money. You would not get this level of service in a 5 star hotel.

I booked a standard suite and was given a room on level 2 facing the river as well as the main road. The room is spacious and clean. When I first checked in, the air-con didn't quite work because after almost half an hour, it still didn't cool the room so I asked for help at the front desk. The situation was rectified immediately and efficiently.
There is a colonial and resort feel to the entire environment, which makes it a perfect place for relaxation. The food at the restaurant was good. I had breakfast daily at the restaurant and there was a small but good selection in the breakfast menu. You get about six choices, including both local and western dishes.
The bathroom was excellent and I really enjoyed the amenities provided, even though I didn't use everything. I thought there were many thoughtful additions and touches in the room which many mainstream hotels don't necessarily provide. For example, this is the first accommodation I've stayed in where built-in international adapters were provided.
The service was impeccable all around but the afternoon/evening shift young receptionist at the front desk needs to take a hospitality 101 course. I asked if the hotel has printing services as I needed to print out my boarding pass. She said the hotel doesn't have that (fair enough) but she wasn't able to help me further. When I asked if there is an Internet cafe nearby where I could go to get my print job done, she wasn't able to help me with that either.
