This is a fairly new place, very clean and elegant, with a lovely pool that's great to dip into during the mid day heat. However, when we were there in March, you could tell they were still learning how to run the place. For example, they didn't always provide the right number of towels, and they don't automatically provide separate pool towels. During our stay we switched rooms and left our key in the room we were vacating - the cleaner rolled it with the dirty linen and I had to go through all my things looking for the key even though I told them I had left it behind. On another occasion, we ordered lunch and my husband's meal didn't come for over 45 minutes until they finally told us they had to go into town to get the ingredients. We were in a rush to make a tour that we had booked, so my husband had to skip lunch. However, to balance all this, the people were very friendly and helpful. The family were very apologetic about the lunch mix-up and offered us a full dinner on the house. It turned out to be an incredible meal.
Regarding location, it's about a 25 minute walk from the old town. It's about half way on the main road from the town to the beach, so there's a lot of traffic on the road. I would ask for a room set back from the road if you are noise sensitive. We rented bikes for $1.50 per day and cycled along side streets into town. There's wonderful cycling in the countryside and villages nearby, through rice fields and along the river. There's even a recommended self-guided cycle tour you can do - get hold of a map showing the route.
Regarding value, when we stayed, they had a soft opening special at half price, which was incredible value. However, at full price, I would put it at average value, which is why I have only given 3 stars for this.
