Let's start with the negatives first; the hotel has quite an old school feel to it but this is part of its charm. The bathroom was quite tired and in real need of a makeover and the overall feel as far as service was concerned was a little stuffy. There are no plasma screens or ipod connectors for example.
Despite that the location must be the best on Kata beach as it is right on the beach and the staff were very friendly, attentive and constantly cleaning, sweeping and shining things making the hotel immaculately clean. The food was to die for - a real highlight of the trip and they obviously take real pride in this.
To summarise it's not that cheap and you are paying for the location, the service and the ability to order the great food.
