“Rough hole”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Don't be fooled by the pictures, stopped in a room of 6 barely enough room to swing a cat let alone sleep 6 people. How people can rate this supposed 'hotel' (more like a hostel in a poor eastern Europe area) as excellent is beyond me. If i paid hostel prices i would be more understanding. Most of the rooms did not have a shower or toilet and the accommodation is filthy. If your not bothered as to what you may be sleeping, walking or showering in at travelodge prices then this is the accommodation for you.

First of all I am sorry that The Escape didn't come up to your expectations I have checked the website and changed the places where it says hotel to surf lodge because that is what it is.The website does mention that it is a 18-30's surf lodge style (ie multiple occupancy). The Escape is not comparable to the travel lodge as the travel lodge isn't ideal for large groups staying up most of the night partying. The Escape is a surf lodge with a great breakfast from 8.30 am to 11am also a thai restaurant which is also suited to large groups. As to most of the rooms not having a en-suite there is 24 people out of 140 that don't have an en-suite and out of that 24 6 do have a shower. The price is around £35 per night in july when you stayed this reflects that this is a seasonal holiday town and we are busy only 6 months a year and for weekends only we are in the middle of town offer parking credit card locks on the doors a late bar, late breakfast and the thai food is amazing. I am so deeply sorry it wasn't your cup of Tea
Kind Regards Gerry

What can i say.
10 out of 10 to Gerry and co for helping and making my stag doo happen.
With 29 blokes coming down to party, it was never going to be a easy job.
But with the help of escape we got carting etc all sorted.
The Birds Thai food was spot on and good value for money.
Room where all clean and ready for us.
The bar was good value with all the main beers on tap.
Just a very good stay for the money and its safe to say we will all be back again soon.
Thanks agin Escape \o/

Room Tip: we had 8 rooms in total and to be honest they where all good. But room 13 is a good little number...

Stayed here for a stag weekend, I have stopped at some ropey Surf lodges in the past but this one was brilliant. The room held all ten of us with plenty of space, the bunks were clean and comfy. The bar downstairs was great, with pool table, music etc and a good range of drinks. Breakfast was a treat, nice fry up with fresh filter coffee for a fiver. The staff could not do enough for us, great service, warm welcome. I'll be back

We stayed here for two nights and it was exactly what we needed - the place is perfect for a stag do and the owner and staff are very friendly. On top of that the breakfast is excellent and the evening meal is great - the food is thai and its as good as anything I have tasted in Thailand! Location is great too - 5 minutes in to all the bars/clubs!
