We initially booked ahead for 4 nights from the UK for the end of April. Liked it so much after we arrived we opted to stay for a further 4 days. It was very quiet whilst we stayed, a few other travellers - French, German & Thais so quite nice mix of people. It is pretty much at the southern end of Lamai beach not far from Grandmother/father rocks so a good 10/15 minute walk to the centre of Lamai either via the road or beech, but that means it is very quiet except for the frogs at night - nice. The grounds are sub-tropical which is lovely if you like plants, which we do, but you need to protect against mosquitoes if you have a drink on the balcony at dusk.
Very friendly staff.
Rooms spotless and cleaned to a very high standard & good value compared to local competition.
Breakfast good. Food excellent in restaurant although we chose to eat up-town most evenings.
Nice pool & jacussi.
Mr Bill came round at breakfast to talk to everyone which was nice (his English was limited but better than my Thai)
No real negatives but a few things to consider:
The beach-front of this part of Lamai suffered from the heavy rains in April. As a result the access to the beach from the hotel was a bit difficult. The beach-front villas were under repair during our stay so may not be available.
The rooms near reception, which seem to be the best rooms involve quite a steep climb down to the beach & restaurant so if you have walking difficulties make sure you are nearer the bottom.
We hired a bike from Bills, it was a duffer - bald tyres, useless helmets etc. There are new looking bikes for hire in Lamai so they may be a better option.
Overall, had a great stay & would recommend it.
