Comfortable stay.
The Jesselton Hotel is right in middle of town and there are many eating places nearby. It is one of the few English built buildings left standing. It has been modernized to make it a comfortable Hotel. The Restaurant was closed for r enervation while I was there. Over all I had no complaints about this Hotel. had four nights there.
