I was a bit leery when ‘bookings.com congratulated me on booking the ‘cheapest room’ at the place but I went anyway. I arrived a bit late and ordered food that I had never had before – I loved it! Try the Prince Henry curried chicken dish! Even the vegetables were strange to me I they were great. The restaurant sold me on the place.
My room was large and comfortable (with the ‘mosquito chaser’). The TV was large but received only 12 channels – I was stuck with the Al Jeerzera network but I really wasn’t there to watch television. The WiFi worked just fine.
The room itself was clean but even though I hung out the “Please clean the room sign.”. the next day – no one had cleaned it by the time I returned later in the evening. The bathroom was adequately large but… as typical with Thai bathrooms - not clean. Toothpaste splatter on the mirror and the tub hadn’t been cleaned in ages. In addition, the shower handle addition was mounted too low for anyone over four feet high and the hot / cold adjustment wouldn’t stay in one place.
The place is a bit tucked away (off the beaten path) but transportation was available.
All-in-all, for the off-season value, I enjoyed my stay.
