The Thistle is now up on my list of favorites & I plan to return there in a couple of weeks. Excellent value for money; I'd searched high and low for a hotel at a reasonable price for 9/11/13 & ended up with the bargain of £144 for a triple room with breakfast. The staff, plenty of them & ALL really helpful & friendly. The room; exceptionally clean, comfy beds (with ear plugs!), TV, kettle & lots of supplies, A DECENT HAIRDRYER, iron & ironing board, spacious, lovely freebies in the bathroom. Room service; prompt & delicious food & drinks. Bar; lovely atmosphere. The hotel as a whole had a very modern feel through the entrance & bar area. The pool was a nice temperature & the spa was lovely! Other points; shame they didn't have a kids menu, kids didn't think the pool was big enough (but this wasn't an issue). Laos had a small CV gym but I didn't use this on this visit. Loved it.
