A basic but acceptable place to rest your head after a day at the golf. They offer a reasonable restaurant with pleasant staff and the location is central in this rather run down town. Don’t expect frills but if you are looking for clean and low priced rooms with good facilities than this could be the place for you.

Nice room, nice pool, good restaurant, good location, great price! All great except the staff were so rude. I’m not sure why they decided to hate us. We were a group of two lesbian couples and we weren’t getting super drunk and rowdy or anything. The first morning we accidentally broke a coffee glass and they were furious. Made us clean it up ourselves and charged us 120 baht (definitely more than the glass was worth originally). It made us feel like children getting in trouble for a genuine accident. After that they were glaring at us all the time, being really curt when we asked questions, and just generally being super unhelpful, etc. For example, they acted really pissed off when we asked them to book us a taxi for dinner one evening. But transport can be really difficult in Thailand! It’s not unreasonable to ask your hotel for help. We felt extremely uncomfortable and unwelcome the entire stay. When we checked out no one smiled and said thank you. Five or six staff all just stood around glaring hard at us until we left. Super weird! It was very unusual for Thailand, where people are generally super nice and friendly. I did see them be rude to other guests too, so maybe it’s just an unhappy workplace and maybe management don’t treat the staff right? Who knows!
