Good value, we stayed one night as a stopover for travelling because it's near the ferry pier ( a five minute walk). Also it was near all the harbour restaurants, which are on stilts out over the water and a lovely place to sit.
The reception staff spoke very little English but smiled a lot and we got by with some miming.
There was wifi in reception plus 2 computers for free use by guests who hadn't got their own. Rooms were very nicely decorated, clean and had nice furniture. Huge bed, hard like all Thai beds, good quality bed linens and towels. We had aircon and you could leave it on when you popped out as it didn't rely on the door key being in place. We had a TV, fridge and free toiletries. Breakfast was included and was OK - tea/coffee, orange juice, eggs, toast and jam. If you turn left out of the hotel there is a nice beach about 200 metres through a big hotel. We asked for a quiet room and got one out the back overlooking a load of rooftops, but the front ones over the street would be quiet as the road is just a cul-de-sac, these rooms had a little balcony with chairs and had shade all the time as they faced north so I would have one of those next time. We had a few mozzies in the room when we arrived even though it's fairly well sealed but we just "asked" at the front desk and they lent us a spray can to spray the room with, then no problem. Great value at 940 baht incl breakfast.
The bad bits...............
We had room 611, hot shower had no hot water and there was a lot of black soot around the electric switch for the power to the shower. It looked like it had blown out some time ago and had not been fixed. I suspect they will not fix this for a long time. Also there was a lot of water on the floor in the bathroom where they had hosed it down in cleaning it, it took many hours to dry out and I wished (in retrospect) that I had asked them to mop it. Always check your room thoroughly before paying for it !
