First impression was poor as the lady checking us in was really unfriendly, however the rest of the staff were fabulous. Great pool area, clean room & good food in the restaurant which was cheap and huge portions. Really good location two minutes from Bangla Road. But quiet at the hotel, perfect.

A beautiful quiet tranquil oasis located only a just moments away from the heat of the nightlife. Rooms only basic, but clean and tidy. The staff are very friendly and eager to help and assist you. Annie at reception is absolutely fabulous, helping to organize any trips, tours etc.. All the girls in both bars are exceptional and very friendly.... More

I loved this place. The female staff was very professional and friendly. There is a big double sided bar by the pool in the courtyard playing old rock and roll where a lot of the guests meet for meals and drinks. A lot of hotels just offer a place to stay, but the expat offers much more. It has a... More

Very disappointed with the room we had booked for 8 nights but left after 3 would have left sooner but took us a while to cancel original booking and we ended up paying a penalty. The room was clean but small and shabby with holes in bedspread and grey bathroom towels and little things like curtains hanging off rails and... More

Massage centre onsite is really good and they will address any aches and pains you have. Also had a manicure and pedicure for men which was amazing. Basic... More

This is certainly not value for money. The rooms are a disgrace and are worth 500 baht and not more. If you want to charge your mobile or toothbrush, you need to unplug the fridge or the TV. No plugs available. Curtains, if you can call them that,are plastic. Plastic doors. Safe was not securely bolted to a firm surface.... More

This is another return visit to my favourite little hotel in Patong beach. I always stay in the poolside rooms. Booking is easy for me as the reservation manager Anne is so helpful when I want to stay. The room is quiet and comfortable and the pool outside my door is great. The food here is always delicious.
