In answer to criticisms that I have read in other reviews- no this isn't a five star hotel and no, the view out of the window (in the room I stayed in anyway) isn't picturesque but then again how can you expect these things when you aren't paying five star prices?!
This is a very good value option for the budget traveller- excellent location (for the beach, restaurants, shops, transport to other parts of the island etc), helpful staff, decent shower, remote controlled aircon, safety deposit box, mini fridge/ freezer etc- in other words, pretty much everything you could hope for. My only suggestions for possible improvements would be a kettle (perhaps that's because I'm English and have a tea addiction!) and free bottled water- I hear quite a lot of places in Thailand provide this, but buying your own isn't a massive problem as it is very cheap (about 15THB).
All in all a very positive experience and I would definitely stay there again if I ever return to Kata.
