“ok place to stay but a bit over rated”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

i thought this place was ok, but nothing amazing. The centre is a good 15 minutes walk which we didnt mind but some might, steve the owner offers a lift if he happens to be going that way. the room were ok but could be improved with a better shower(ours was very weak) little touches like hand soap, but also to dust the corners of the rooms as there were cobwebs and spiders in the bathroom. I also felt the price was a little high considering the location and we were shown a room after we booked and extra 2 nights that was right on the beach, just as big with the same ammenities but fresher looking for 200 baht less per night, we were charged 900 baht a night though the website says 850 so this needs updating. overall ok but average.

chault, Owner at Chaulty Towers, responded to this review, July 25, 2010
After only having previously glowing reviews, I suppose I was dissappionted, but after giving thought to the coments, I like to respond honestly. In almost 6 years of trading its true, that we have never issued hand soap in the bathrooms, all of our guests have brought their own, and noone has ever mentioned it. However after reading the review, since the23rd July every room now has Soap and shampoo. About the room cleaning, thist is one of our things we pride ourselfs on, and again after reading this review, the rooms on the day I checked were up to standard. About a spider in the room, this is a tropical island, and I don't doubt there was a spider present, but this would be the same in many other establishments. There is only one thing I feel strongly about was the comment about lifts to town/beach, every guest on arrival is made aware of the service bell at the bar/reception, any one who wants a lift only has to ask. In this case I was never asked, and I twice offered a lift when I saw the guest leaving, and they said they would like to walk. When they checked out to another establishment I also offered them a lift to their next hotel which they declined

whether you a seasoned traveller to Thailand or a first timer this place offers you everthing you'd need. The room and facilities are excellent and offer great value for money. On the outskirts of main strip you'll find it comfortable and quiet. Steve the host (Englishman) is a great guide and kindly offers you transport. (his band provide a good night out too!). Great breakfast too after one too many Singha's! Good size pool, pool table and bar mean you often dont need to venture too far. Go there, we've just got back after our third visit.
