The budget room that we booked had problem about AC & TV. The Norwegian owner(Mr.Terje) was kind to upgrade our room to bigger one with functional TV.During our stay was very quiet due to COVID, therefore the room rate was quite low (250 THB- budget room with breakfast included), but we feel thanks enough, we rejected our breakfast as we already got room upgrade, It's really valuable price.

Absolutely love this small hotel. Home from home. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner. Large very comfortable bed, excellent breakfast, and great location for beach, bars and night market. Food very reasonable and we enjoyed the best massaman curry we've ever tasted in Thailand.

A cracking little restaurant right next to the Night Market in Kata. The food is all freshly prepared, and served by lovely staff, all coming in for a lot less than other nearby restaurants. For me, there was a feeling that this was just like having a traditional Thai meal cooked at home......lovely!

Visited for breakfast and lunch on our final day in Kata, and wish we had found this place sooner! Whilst we stayed at another hotel, we couldn't help but be impressed with the breakfast offer and also the fantastic lunch we came back for later that day. Very friendly establishment where were made to feel at home by the kind Norwegian owner even with our very young two kids. In addition, checking their official website, the advice given to visitors to Kata is excellent; 800 Baht for a Taxi to the airport is indeed the correct rate (the friendly agent with a small stall next to the Spiderman bar alley nearby always gave the best price for a taxi and for the island tours). Big thumbs up for Southern Fried Rice and the friendly Norwegian owner whom it was a pleasure to meet.
