It has to be said that this hotel is really fantastic for the price it charges. Set in nice gardens, it is modern with good sized rooms, well furnished with lots of space to put your luggage and to work on your computer with the very good free WiFi. The beds are comfortable, the bed linen white and crisp and the bathroom with free standing shower is a good size and the staff speak English and are friendly.
There are a few niggles: the main one being it is 3 kms out of the town centre but it does provide free transport into town at 6pm and return at 9pm to have dinner and visit the night market. If you have your own transport its location is very good as it is near two large supermarkets. It is difficult to find as the signposting is not good. The hotel is not well soundproofed and you can hear the people talking and the television in the adjacent rooms and it has no lift. However, our main complaint was the restaurant which is in a very nice building overlooking the small lake in the grounds with some tables out over the water, but the food was poor. Our dinner was tasteless - how can you make Thai food tasteless? I have had a far better papaya salad in Tesco Lotus Food Court. Breakfast was not very good and, as a previous reviewer has said, it gives you cold fried eggs. This is because the chef cooks them in advance, puts them out on a metal tray and then he leaves, so it is impossible to ask for a hot freshly fried egg
However, you must remember it is remarkably good value. You will not find better value. It is a pity the cooking could not be sorted out.
