“Not well managed, better places elsewhere for the same price”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

The pros: location is a short walk (5-10 minutes) to Sairee centre so you're away from the noise (bring a flashlight if walking at night); rooms are spacious; shower is very hot; you get a stocked fridge; balconies are large with great views; aircon seemed to work fine. The cons: 10:00 checkout and if you leave after 11:00, they charge you an extra day; badly managed (they lost our booking and had us stay in a larger room but at a higher cost); not clean (hair and dust balls very visible upon entry to the room, bathroom was not clean, and they did not clean the room during our two night stay). We paid 1100 baht but decided to move after researching other places on the island. The guy working the day shift was friendly, but otherwise based on experience with the other staff, I do understand the negative views about unfriendly staff. I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher you are, the better the view.

Really enjoyed staying here, location just a 10 minute walk from central Sairee, so it's nice and quiet.

The room we stayed in was nice and spacious and had gorgeous views over towards the sea, with a nice balcony to sit on. Room equipped with fridge, TV and lots of space to put/store things. The bathroom was well kept and had the best shower I've come across in South East Asia, good water pressure and big shower head. The only let down was the bed and fan. The bed being like sleeping on concrete making it extremely hard to sleep, and the fan as it constantly moves and unable to keep it in one place makes for a hot sleeping experience.

The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly. I can not see how anyone has had a bad experience. They can not do enough for you! They helped book train tickets, boat tickets, snorkelling trips as well as just general information extremely well and efficiently.

The beach is extremely easy to get to, just walk across the road and through a resort which no one minds you doing and you're on the beach in less than 3 minutes!

A very good place to stay on the island, we ended up staying 6 nights!

Stayed here for three nights, thought the staff were nice and friendly, total false! Had money taken from myself and girlfriend and also two belts of my stolen aswell as my chinos. Seemed nice and sweet but totally false, do not trust these people!! The rooms were clean and tidy, although air conditioning didn't work. Had a nice view, good location as its away from the busy areas. Just a shame about the shock of the theft. Disappointed.

Stayed here thanks to trip advisor and what a sneaky find. It's right at the top of sairee beach and a 5min walk through another resort to the long stretch of beach. If you walk down the road 5-10min you will reach the nightlife. Not a far walk, just means you can get to sleep without any thudding music!!! Bonus.
We paid 500B a night but got upgraded to an expensive 1000B room as the hotel was quiet!! Great. Sea view room, TV, Fridge, Hot Water everything you could need after two months of travelling.
The staff are amazing! Just a small family run place but they go out of their way to help you.
Couldn't praise this place enough, it's worth the walk to the beach and to the strip.

Let me start by saying that the hotel in not on the beach side. It's slightly further from the beach on the mountain side. it's far to walk to the town if you have to keep going back on forth but getting a bike makes that no issue at all. The guy who works there is really friendly and is always ready to help you with anything. try to book stuff through him as he will get discounts for you! Great room we had. The elephant towels are awesome. Me and my gf really loved it. It's also quiet because it's a bit further from the town which works because the town is just crazy noisy!

Would recommend it to anyone and would stay there again anytime.

The most uncomfortable bed I have ever tried in all my life! Impossible to sleep relaxed, old hard mattress no healthy for the back.
Horrible!!!
Cold shower.
Bad service of the hotel, everything is extra and hotel operators at the reception do not welcome hosts in any way, just ask for money. No helpful.
