Very clean and the staff were helpful. We stayed in the hostel and the beds were very comfortable. A bit noisy from the bar below but nothing too bad. Close to restaurants and some shops. Perfect for our One night stop over.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here as backpackers to end our trip in Thailand. We wanted somewhere cheap but comfortable and that's exactly what we got. We had a standard room with a fan. On the hotter days it may have been worth to get aircon but for the price, a fan did us fine! The rooms are clean and...

Hi Amy, Thanks very much for taking the time to leave your review, we really appreciate it and love reading what our clients have to say about our budget beachside hotel. I'm sorry about your experience with the staff in the Swing Bar. Admittedly the bar was still in a transition period during your stay and not all the staff...

Stayed for 4 nights and arrived early hours in the morning. We were booked into a standard room but noticed that we'd paid more than anyone else so asked that we be moved to a room with a balcony as seemed unfair to be charged more for less! It was no problem for them the following day and we were...

Dear Gabrielle, Thank you very much for your kind words and although we really appreciate a nice review, there are a few things that lead me to believe you have reviewed the wrong property. First; I can't find any past bookings this month under a similar name to yours, but the booking might have been made by someone else which...

The staff are lovely at reception and the manager engaged with us. The rooms are not so great. I booked a small room with a fan - big mistake from my side. The room did not smell to good. It just felt dingy. So if you stay here rather book a room with aircon and a bit of space. The...

Maybe it was because we were here in the quiet season- but we found the hotel staff average, and the restaurant and bar staff simply poor. The room was average - a big enough size to be comfortable in. You are right across the street to the beach. The pool is okay- definitely needs to be cleaned. The chairs and...

Dear KSTravel12, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I'm sorry our budget beachside hotel was not up to your standards, still I find it interesting how you titled the post as "Below average hotel" yet stated the room and staff were "average" in your review and fail to point out anything you found "below average" during...

Hotel was nice enough, room was clean, fresh waters provided daily and daily cleans, it's bang across the road from the beach, and you have free access to the sun loungers provided by the bar!

Hi Michelle! Thank you for your great review. We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay here and appreciated the complimentary sun beds, proximity to Lamai centre and our range of trips that can be booked at the reception for guests' convenience.

Definitely worth it for the price(480 bhat a night) especially since it steps right out on to the beach through their bar. I do recommend spending the extra 100 bhat a night and getting the deluxe room as you can see from my photos, it's really worth the extra bit as the standard room was not the nicest. The staff...
