Had the misfortune of staying here during a recent motorcycling trip on the islands.
Upon meeting Trevor, the owner his first response on meeting us was 'I Fxxxxxg hate bikes' !!
and then proceeded to tell keep us waiting for our room by telling us long winded horror stories of what had happened to other motorcyclists on the island !
Not what you want at the start of a holiday.
The rooms were basic and cheap, although on the plus side the views from the front were good and the breakfast was good. But seemed overpriced by about £30.
The owner also seemed to be pushing us to eat in his Thai restaurant that evening but we decided to go out instead to see more of the town.
The next day we could tell he wasn't happy about this as he decided to ex-communicate us!
Looking back that probably wasn't a bad thing !
I don't often leave bad reviews but I would avoid this place at all costs.
