I really liked this hotel. It's a short walk from Thong Sala pier, on a sleepy road in the village of Thong Sala. Haad Rin beach (Full Moon Party) is only 15/20 minutes away by Tuk Tuk and there's plenty of them around. Rooms are clean and big enough. Hotel grounds are in good condition and the breakfast is edible!... More

This hotel is a joke. I have never been accused of so much wrong doing because the senior staff cannot admit they made a mistake. After leaving room key in the reception for safe keeping I return next morning to be told I had 1: not handed it in 2: handed it in but took it back straight away 3:came... More

Left for full moon party at 8 o'clock , left both room keys at reception . Returned at 10 am following morning first they said we never handed in room... More

Definitely worth the money. Rooms and toilets are clean and spacious. The restaurant is not great. Very few choices available. There is breakfast included in the package. Location wise its far from Haad Rin beach where the full moon party is. But overall its a definite option.

Good location, just a short walk (maybe 5 minutes) to Thong sala, very close to the pier and lots of restaurants. The room was nice, very clean, nice bathroom. Was pretty quiet at night except for one night where some drunken english idiot was banging on the bedroom doors but thats not exactly the hotels fault. The food in the... More

We stayed over the new year. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Breakfast is okay, you get a choice and it's part of the price which came to us as a surprise. The shower in the room was okay but you had to keep swapping from hot to cold. My husband took to running a bath which did take... More

This place was excellent!! Staff were super friendly and the room was basic but comfortable. Had all the amenities one would need (fridge, seperate shower from toilet, aircon, restaurant, swimming pool) As in the subject, the location was very good if you want to be located near thong sala pier, but very far from Haad Rin. If you are going... More

The hotel was good and the staff very friendly and helpfull. The rooms were clean and the pool fine. But if you stay here, rent a scooter and og drive around the Island! Thong Sala isn't special......

This place ticks all the boxes in practicality, safety and comfort at a good price. The staff were so kind to us, we felt so much at home. The hotel in general is nice and clean in the areas I saw. It seems a family run place so that's maybe why the relaxed approach, but it didn't bother me, its... More
