Scandinavian Residence. A resort ok, maybe a little far from town. 10 rooms, which could have been a little bigger and 3 backpacker rooms having an ok size, but are at the back. A small swimming pool, bar and restaurant. The place was before owned by a Danish doctor, but is now taken over by a local family.

The place was booked last minute due to a early morning flight back to bangkok. For less than £40 for the room. I have to say the room was clean but very basic. It was beds , it's was like sleeping on a pool table. It had to be the hardest, most comfortable bed I've slept in. During the night... More

The rooms are located around a back laid yard which features a swimming pool and small garden; its all really quiet here so that you can have nice sleep without being disturbed by loud music or traffic.

We stayed here for 3 nights based on the trip advisor reviews. I really cannot understand the amount of good reviews on this place. Our room was not clean, the tv picture was so bad you could not watch anything, wifi did not work in our room, the bathroom was horrible, bed sheets and towels were old, ripped and stained... More

Thanks for your response, which gives me a chance to correct your wrong information. It"s made clear on all booking sites that the distance to Ao Nang Beach is only 1,852 meters. As you already knew this why do you complain? Very easy access by Tuk-Tuk and Songthaew 24 hours. We have only 14 rooms of which only 3 are... More

Stayed here for 4 days. Great value for Money and Works well for our Family as it is very private and kids can play at pool etc. Basic foods for breakfast and lunch but expect to go out for dinner. The owners are great and we always feel welcome here.

Accomodation was cheap and it was 5-8minutes from the Ao Nang town. We had the basic amenities, and there was no air-conditioning but it was alright for the 3 of us.

We were here in July, not the best season of course. Everything in the room felt very humid, the sheet on the bed felt clammy and a number of them had old stains. Bathroom very outdated. This must have been a place where the hippies used to gather in the 70's. It was nice to have the bar, a place... More
