Myself and a friend trekked to stay in this hotel..had done research on prices and enquired when we arrived only for the price to suddenly be DOUBLED!we went online to show the price that was presented on the website..only for the rude front of house to ignore us and continue to maintain the doubled price.. she didn't explain to us how the price had suddenly changed and when we showed her the online price she said that it was "out of her control" very rude even to other guests that were passing through reception!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

My boyfriend and I came to Karon at the end of our trip to Thailand and stumbled across it by mistake. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and spoke good English. The room cost was far lower than any of the other places we had looked at close by. The room had air conditioning, a fan, a tv with English channels, free wi fi in the rooms and use of the internet at reception, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. There was also a fridge to store food-drink and you could buy drinks too for a reasonable rate. The location is just off of the main road along the beach and it is only a 15 minute taxi ride to Patong or a 5 minute walk to Kata.

The guest house offers a breakfast for a small fee and there are plenty of places around to find food. All in all we had a really nice stay here, on the first night there was a problem with the toilet leaking and we were moved to another room immediately with no fuss. The owner was very helpful and gave us information on how to find local tourist sites and on scooter rental.

If you are on a budget but still want good accommodation then we would highly recommend this guest house!

Didnt seem to have anything to do with diving, as there was not encouragement or information for diving.
The rooms were spacious, but the bed was uncomfortable and the shower didn't always have hot water. We also had trouble with the locks on our window and shared balcony,
The staff were friendly and the location was great, close to shops, restaurants and bars. Also only a 10 minute walk to Karon beach. Just think it was a bit overpriced compared to other Thai guesthouses.

Room Tip: Check windows and doors lock.

I choose it because the owner answered the booking request quickly and friendly. Transfer from and to the airport was organized by the hotel, all smooth. Owners are Swedish and very friendly in receiving guests, rooms clean and corresponding to tariff, breakfast is all right. Only unpleasant note the behavior of the Thai women who seems a manager or local co-owner, unfriendly every day and at any hour of the day without reason, a pity, as otherwise the place is all right.

Room Tip: higher floor for view

A great hotel with very friendly staff. I was made to feel very welcome by the staff and was upgraded to a better room class (this was off-season). After my stay, the receptionist kindly let me look at the top-end rooms in the hotel (to satisfy my curiosity) - whilst I was very happy with my room, the view from the top would have been great.

I initially booked for just one night, as I wasn't sure what my plans were, but the staff were happy to keep an eye on my bags, and I ended up staying for a few more days.

The hotel is very well located in Karon - less that 5 minutes walk to the beach, good access to supermarkets and ATMs. Please do not feel this is a "divers only" kind of place - whilst it does cater for divers, it is also very suitable for anyone looking for a high-quality hotel room on a budget.

Nothing bad to say at all....I really liked it
Tip - If you like the beach they provide a load of beach toys,lilo's etc BRILLIANT!!!!!
