Reviewed July 12, 2012

Me and my boyfriend stopped here for four days on a trip to Thailand in June 2012.
This hotel is set slightly down a side road so 10 – 15 minutes’ walk from bars, markets and restaurants but the room was lovely, the staff were friendly and the food was nice, however stopped serving food at 6pm but offered a dinner on request. The pool and loungers were ok but the lounges could do with updating at they had a few minor scuffs and cuts where the leather had ripped, but could borrow free beach towels (always a plus). Breakfast was great good choice of foods. We organized a few trips arranged through the hotel at a good price and they all ran smoothly.
Not much to say about this hotel as everything was great! Would defiantly go back again.

Fantastic place to stay. This little boutique resort has very friendly, helpful staff and the place is immaculate. Rooms serviced daily if you desire and breakfast is included eggs, fruit, ham, shake, toast, cereal, it was delicious. We rented a scooter for the day from here which was very handy to explore the rest of kph samui. It is a great place to relax by the pool on the sun loungers and walk to beach is only 5 minutes. I would recommend this place to anyone

We booked at this accomodation via their website and had great communication with the owner kamil. Included is a free airport pick up from koh samui airport to the resident. The driver was on time and very friendly. Although we arrived late in the pm, kamil was there to greet us and show us to our room. He explained all of the room amenities as well as the residence amenitirs such as the use of the pool, hiring a motorbike etc. Houghout our stay kamil was a great help answering our questions and giving best advice and directions. The residence is located 5min walk down the main street of lamai beach and to the beach. We walked the length of the beach and back in 1hr and a half..considering we are very slow walkers and it was very hot! The residence have two staf who clean the rooms daily and they were always friendly. Breakfast is included which was good. The rooms were very big, with a little kitchen, microwav and fridge. The bathrooms were clean and had electric hot water for the shower. The soktrews or public transport drove right past the accomodation which is handy. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this friendly, clean and centrally located accomodation

We stayed in the Royal Cottage Residence for 6 nights after leaving the more noisy resort of Chaweng beach. The area here is slightly quieter and suited us better. The hotel is located about a 5 min walk from the beach and a 10 minute walk into the main shopping/restaurant area. The room itself was large and almost like a studio; large fridge, microwave and kitchen sink area. the bathroom was also large with a hot shower. The room also had a clothes horse for hanging laundry outside which came in handy for us on our travels. The pool is small but because the hotel only has a small amount of rooms its never that busy. The staff are friendly but it should be noted that reception closes at 6pm or sometimes earlier as we experienced. Breakfast is not great at all. The breakfast area is outdoors and was covered in ants. This was the hotels main downfall for me. The hotel is surrounded by green forest and has large gheckos around at night time, which may be a problem for some guests. Wi-Fi available but very poor in our room.

Overall I really enjoyed the stay here and would recommend to a friend.
