I didn't stop hearing great things about this hotel from fellow Aussies before finally giving in and booking it.
The hotel is in a pretty unbeatable location in Patong if you're there to have a great time and enjoy the crazy nightlife (which we were). It's literally only minutes' walk (10 at most if you're really slow) to Bangla Road, where it all happens when the sun goes down. It's also just across the road from Patong Beach.
The hotel's also got a really nice pool area, but being so nice, and of course, having the crowd-pleasing swim-up pool bar, it does get quite busy, so we preferred to spend time on Patong Beach instead when we wanted to be near the water.
Our room was spacious enough and well-equipped, but we basically just had a close-up view of a palm tree from our balcony, which was a bit disappointing considering the room wasn't cheap. Still, it was a clean, well-kept room and the bed was comfortable.
Staff were a bit hit and miss. We encountered some very helpful staff, for instance, the lovely staff at the lobby bar, but then we encountered some not-so-helpful staff, such as those who made a mix up of our room bill and said we couldn't get late checkout even though it was included in our rate (we did get it in the end - after speaking to a different staff member).
All in all, this hotel is pretty good and in a great location so I'd recommend it, but it's not competitively priced when you look at other similar standard hotels in Patong. So just be sure to do your research and don't necessarily give in to the hype before booking.
