After reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor we expected a lot more. The cheap price accurately reflects the 3 star quality of the hotel. The Australian owner tries to be helpful but we just found him overbearing. But he gets points for trying. You usually get what you pay for, and this hotel is no different.
Location wise the hotel is about 15 minutes from the beach, and about 10 minutes from the main shopping centre in Patong. The road to the hotel is quite busy so I would not recommend families with small children stay here. Room was clean but would fill up with dead bugs towards the evening, whatever surface spray they are using does an excellent job! Bathroom is stuffy with no ventilation, and the shower pressure left a lot to be desired.
I would say this hotel is best for single men looking to sample the infamous night life in Patong; as the man next door to us was doing. Don't stay here as a couple or family.
I would recommend a couple or family check out the excellent resorts on the beach. You can't beat the Thai hospitality. Why go to Thailand to stay at an Australian quality hotel?
