This hotel is in a great location close to shops and restaurant and beach. The rooms are okay, shower was a little mouldy and we struggled with getting hot water. We had a pool access room and the extra you pay is well worth it. Breakfast is average. The staff are very friendly and eager to help you out. 99... More

The hotel is near the main road but the rooms and set back slightly so you're away from the noise. The room itself was great with a nice view and we found it relaxing - the perfect place to unwind if you want to get away from the patong madness. A nice warm welcome on arrival too

Staff are friendly, room is alright except very weak flushing system. Good for couples as the room lighting is quite dim, ambient is as romantic as it can get. Wouldn't recommend this place if it's only 1 guy and 1 girl.
