Let's go straight to what was the selling point of Golden Banana... That it was a mere 5 minutes away from the hustle and bustle from the city centre (Pub Street et al.), but yet far enough to maintain the oasis charm. The other thing that took me and my friend by surprise was the loft concept of the rooms. It was a 2 storey room, of which I loved the top floor as it overlooked the pool and it has a nice hanging chair which I absolutely adore.
The breakfast was alright, nothing to honk about. I didn't feel full with the portions they gave but it was sufficient.
We did use the hotel tuk tuk and it was very reasonably priced. That was where we booked our half day tour and the driver brought us to all the temples worth seeing.
One thing that perhaps could be improved, was that it would be better for us if the television set was on the first floor, together with the beds instead. The lazy bum in me just didn't want to climb up to the second floor for TV before bed, then having to climb back down to bed in the ground floor. Also the air-con is leaking in Room Zest and this could be looked into as well.
Overall, we had a very pleasant experience with this hotel, and would considering going back again.
