It's an apartel. I thought I'd clarify that first. The rooms are kept immaculate. Comfy with the ability to self cater. Air con,wifi works great. Small pool which is also impeccably clean.
Great value British meals availiable and has a nice pub below. Motorcycle rentals can be had there. One minor note on this, the owner isn't always there to see the upkeep of these bikes is done. We had a minor accident due to the chain falling off while we were going up a hill on Samal. We both sustained minor injuries. Marnet,the proprietors wife demanded we pay an exorbitant amount of money for a foot peg damaged. We were prepared to pay a reasonable price for the foot peg but not what she demanded :-((. Also keep an eye on medications as one of chamber staff did take a couple of the sleeping pills that my partner had.
Money was never touched and nothing else ever went sour.
Fantastic place to stay that's quiet and secure , comfort foods and a generally good vibe. Really love the owner as he's a man of distinction and goes out of his way to make you comfortable.. One quote he has on the wall downstairs in the pub ,remember where you are!!
I would definitely stay there again. Sigh. As it was our home away from home
Aside from above that was the only major issue
