“Set back, immaculately clean, poor breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Overall this hotel is really clean with free wi fi and provides beach towels for use. Swimming pool available for use, belonging to next door hotel. For price, this is an excellent spot for a few days. We stayed in the standard room, with small enclosed balcony, but very private and good. Breakfast was limited (especially if you don't like eggs, as this was all that was offered), but fruit and cereal and toast is fine. Clean sheets, towels etc daily and fridge, tv etc in room. Generally would recommend, but not for more than a few days. Walk to beach was about 10 minutes stroll, loads of eating options nearby (some Bsolutely fantastic), and beach is clean, but busy.
Recommend getting the ferry, via phi phi to Koh Lanta. Much much nicer, quieter, more beautiful and worth visiting!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We moved from a large hotel to this small, family-run guest house and were delighted with it and cannot recommend it too highly. The staff were always friendly and attentive, the place was spotlessly clean, breakfast freshly cooked and excellent. I have stayed in a lot of 4 and 5 star hotels but this was far better and much cheaper also. Although there was a 10 minute walk to the beach it is set in a peaceful cul de sac but close to the bars and restaurants.

This new small hotel has very clean spacious rooms with fridge, a/c, wi-fi, large lcd-tv, use of two pools and balcony or large terrace. Rooms are cleaned daily and you can rent beach towels at the reception -for free. They also organize all kind of trips, rentals, transfers cheaper than tourist agencies. Staff is truly very friendly and helpful. Beach is five minutes walk away. Food in restaurant is excellent. We stayed at Orchid House for 10 days so the only little downsize was the same same breakfast every day. Totally recommended.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra baht go for room with large terrace. the terrace is huge with sun chairs...

We stayed here for 5 nights over Christmas. The rooms are very clean, staff very friendly and helpfully. The lady at reception booked our boat to koh lanta and it was cheaper than other places quoted. There is a choice of 2 pools to use, 1st one next door and 2nd pool in hotel opposite. 1st pool is shared with another hotel in same building. Both hotels are small, not large resorts. Food in restaurant was very nice and breakfast was served till 10.30am. We Would stay here again.

This brand new hotel on the Beach Center Complex is furnished to a very high standard , is spotlessly clean and very, very comfortable. The bedrooms are quite spacious and a small lovely balcony adds to its appeal. Wifi and a public access computer available. Breakfast is a choice from the menu and is served at table. The standard of breakfast is very high and better than most nearby restaurants. This hotel was excellent value for money, nearly half the price of a nearby hotel we stayed at for 3 nights when you include breakfast and many times better in all departments. Thoroughly recommended.
