The woman who runs it is crazy and not in a good way. When we arrived she was shouting at people charging them 500 Baht extra as they were trying to check out at 10.15. When they pointed out they weren't told checkout is 10am she no word of a lie just wrote a sign and stuck it to the... More

We had a bad experience at this place. We found the woman who runs it, Mrs Lee, very rude. We would not recommend staying here. It brought me nearly to tears at how badly she treated us. She will not give you the remote for the aircon and there is no wifi in the rooms.

I never write reviews but I am led here so frustrated I need to vent. There is no wifi, you either use the pro divers wifi on the one side or the breakfast place on the other side. You basically have to sign a contract before you go in they even mention massage oil and new tattoos and God forbid... More

I cannot imagine anyone saying there is not good service. Mrs L is amazing. The room is exactly what I expected from a guest house. It's a typical Thai room- honestly it could be far, far worse. The one star reviews are harsh. Honestly, it was clean and a place to rest. Close to the beaches and the food was... More

There were cockroaches everywhere to start with, no air con! Only wifi in the doorway?! The owner had to re-enter a password for you multiple times a day which she was unwilling to do so. The worst thing about our room was that one of the beds had wee on it (or it smelt like it) which made us think... More

This was the worst place I have stayed in Thailand. The rooms were unbelievably hot and the fan did little to help. There were no sheets on the bed and I had to use a towel as a blanket. The owner is also very rude and I was yelled at multiple times for forgetting to take my shoes off, forgetting... More

The only positive about this guesthouse is the location. We planner on staying four nights but ended up leaving early, without a refund, for the following reasons: 1) When we arrived we were immediately accosted by the front desk staff, who we later found out was the owner, because of our nationality. We had paid online for a twin room,... More

Words cannot describe the experience here ... at first the owner was very welcoming and you can instantly tell she has the whole guesthouse under control - which is good considering the location is fantastic and in the middle of everything. However I couldn't believe the rooms, they were awful! Stained bed sheets and ancient rotten bathrooms. I've stayed in... More

If hell is a place, then it resides at banthai guesthouse, and Mrs lee holds the key to its horrendous depths. The woman at the forefront of this hostel was the embodiment of rudeness and could not have been more impudent throughout our stay. And her presence was only the sour cherry on top of a place which could only... More
