We ended up staying at Grandmas because our original option was fully booked....we were not disappointed.

For just $40 AUD per night - this was perfect value

The Good Stuff:
Staff were helpful (aside from one who wanted to charge a daily rental fee for an extra pillow!!!)
Rooms clean, safe and secure.
Extra towels, loo paper etc available on request (only 2 small bath towels and 1 small roll of loo paper in room when we arrived).
Central to Seminyak for food (24hr supermarket 3 mins away)
Walk to beach (3-5mins)
Pool is actually open beyond 6pm if you are quiet and gracious :)
Great massage

The Not So Good Stuff
No fridge
No proper wardrobe....only a very small hanging bar with 2 hangers
No clothes line/airer - did a lot of hand washing and used the shower rack, chairs and plastic wall hanging thing to air them
Restaurant is expensive by local standards
Steps up to lobby - no ramp for heavy bags
No computer - bring your own tablet/PC
It can be noisy as close to road and there is some building work next door right now - so request a back room toward the centre.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back - quieter.

We checked into the Grandmas Hotel because it was close to the beach and very affordable. The restaurant and pool area are so lovely that we assumed the rest of the property would be just as nice. Our room was ok, nothing special, but we were unable to make a local call from our room as they do not allow outgoing calls. The spa was terrible, inexperienced staff and EXTREMELY noisy, as was the hallway outside our room. We were awoken each morning of our stay before 6am because other guests and hotel staff were talking and slamming doors in the hallway. Security patrol radios were also extremely loud. There was no peace or quiet in the room whatsoever. There are no bellmen to help with your bags and only a small ramp to aid in lifting suitcases. Our bathroom is full of spider webs and the shower is mouldy. Basically, spend a few extra dollars to stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

On arrival at the hotel it look very nice. The rooms are modern and clean but are basic and very small, we just had space to open both of our suitcases.
Location is good, its a short walk to the beach and there are lots of shops and restuarants nearby.
The service here was by far the worst of the the 5 hotels we stayed at whilst in Bali. The staff didnt seem to know what they were doing and werent very helpful. When we arrived we had no toilet roll or towels, we called down and asked for some and they said someone would bring them up. After 15 minutes we called again and again they said they would be straight up but weren't, as we were exhausted and wanted to go out to eat we had to use our beach towels.
The other issue was the noise, the walls are really thin so you can hear everything. They play music in the restuarant until 11pm so theres no chance you'll be able to sleep before then and if anyone is talking in the corridoor during the night or early morning you will be able to hear it. We were woken by children running up and down the corridoors screaming every morning.

Stayed here for 4 nights and everything met our expectation. Asked for quite room and got 522 at the 5th floor. Slept very well during our stay. Room is small but big enough for the two of us and its very clean! Had breakfast twice at the restaurant and the set were huge, I couldn't finish it by myself. The beach is only within walking distance.But the spa is the ultimate best! IDR 85.000 for an hour massage with 5 star service. Definitely will come back for more.

Room Tip: Ask for a quite room at the back and on the top floor!
