We stayed here for a couple of nights en route to a wedding and it proved to be a comfortable and affordable rest after a tiring flight. The hotel has seen better days but despite being quite basic the rooms themselves are quite generous, and the restaurant serves a surprisingly good Thai meal and will even cook western food if you insist on it. You can also jump in the pool, or get a great massage in the hotel's spa for next to nothing, either of which is perfect for relaxing after a long journey. As the hotel is situated on the riverside a short walk or tuk-tuk ride from the centre of Surat Thani, it's a bit quieter than more centrally located hotels, and while the views aren't exactly picturesque they're pleasant enough. Apart from the front desk the staff's English was somewhat limited, but never enough to pose a problem, and they would always endeavour to help despite the occasional failure of communication. The only real issue we encountered was that the hotel was quite full at the time we stayed there, so some in our group didn't initially get the rooms they were expecting - twin rooms instead of doubles - and this required a bit of sustained encouragement to sort out. The hotel was definitely worth the money in the end though, and it's a pleasant stay if you're planning a short visit to Surat Thani.
