Stayed 4 nights and was wonderful. Love the rooms and a nice feel to them with the wooden paneling sourrounding you along with the 4 poster kingsize bed it really did feel so relaxing. The matress on the bed (damn never checked to see what make/model it was, wanna buy me one of them) was probably the comfiest and best nights sleep I've ever had.
The breakfast buffet is good and a decent selection along with a choice of breads too.
Service in the hotel is great and the staff are attentive and the housemaids really do clean the room and make it spotless each day. Two good swimming pools and I preferred the one inside the hotel but the one near the beach is a nice place to chill out too. Places outside the hotel in the courtyard like Pazzo Italian restaurant, The Irish bar, and Mamas burgers all offer good food/drinks too.
To be fair, the beach right opposite the hotel isn't so good but a 5 minute walk to the right and over a small estuary, there you will find good areas to swim in.
As for location, no it is not in the middle of Lamai, so if you really want late night mayhem then that is a 20 minute walk or an expensive (so I'm told) taxi. However, for me it was a good location as I like a bit of peace and quiet as opposed to being right in the 'one-way street' centre ... so bear this in mind if booking this hotel.
Overall this hotel for the money paid by internet bokking was great at @1900 Baht per night.
