Arrived at the hotel last night after leaving MM Hill Hotel due to poor service and rooms (bad review heading their way soon!)
The local tourist info shop recommended Garden Home to us as it had available rooms, within budget and is a new hotel. We were not disappointed when we inspected the rooms!! Twin rooms are spacious, bed is firm and comfortable and there is plenty of storage space. The TV picture quality is a little grainy but we didn't come here to watch TV to be honest!
Very important for this hotel.... FREE WIFI!!! Yes, even in the room :-) An absolute godsend for getting the iPhone backed up and photos saved!
The check-in was painless and the owners daughter speaks very good English, we paid by Visa card (3% surcharge) and were given a receipt showing the actual cost in our own currency, £GBP.
Location is pretty good, it's on a back street just south of the "south town" nightlife and it's maybe a 15-min walk to Tropical Murphy's or Reggae Pub & 5-min walk to Chaweng Beach. A short taxi ride (about 100baht each) will get you to the more "tacky" nightlife where the ladyboys and "girls for rent" patrol calling out your name and trying to entice you into their bar.... Which is recommend you stay away from!
All in all a great little hotel, very very clean with hot shower and comfortable bed in a near-ideal location!
