2000baht for the seafront room is just too much considering the quality of everything in the room (shabby) and the noise from the Sairee beach bars that were on a direct line of sight from the room.
+ the beach, the view, nice staff, fridge and aircon in room.
- very noisy, shabby rooms that need some serious care.

We arrived on koh tao we accommodation organised at another hotel but when we got there they had sold the room so a mad dash ensued trying to organise somewhere to stay. We ended up here and all four of us were less than happy with our stay. My main gripe would be the cost, we paid somewhere in the region of €40 per night to stay here and it was truly awful. The only redeeming feature was the view. I think if this hotel had of been €20 a night I wouldn't be complaining but as it wasn't it was bad from something as simple as walking up the steps which are poorly built and too large to walk comfortably to the flimsy doors, broken aircon, horrible shower and low door frames which resulted in me hurting my head repeatedly it was an awful place to stay. We left as soon as we could find alternative accomodation.

In your overpriced room you have no wifi, so you have to walk all the way down to the reception everyday!
It is so quiet you can sleep all day, but the beds are too hard. You can try to watch television, if it is working.
No possibilities to get food in the hotel and it's a pretty long end walk to the first good restaurant.

Seafront bungalow @1200 Baht is reasonable because the view was priceless. The tiny cove felt like a private beach. The bed was not too comfortable, and the towels smelled like they were soaked in petroleum. Luckily, you take a cold shower and dry by air within 5 minutes. You can get a bungallow like this for half the price, but for us the location was worth it. If we weren't staying at the very edge of the water, I probably would not have chosen it based on the room itself. Quite shabby.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are worth it.

If you dont like bedbugs that feast on you all night long please stay away! We stayed in one of their overpriced bungalows. Everything was dirty and service horrible! You can find much better for the same price around the area

Arrived at view cliff in search of cheap accommodation for four nights. After asking in a few places and being told that everywhere wa fully booked we were saved by view cliff when they offered us 3 twin rooms for 700baht each a night. Although this was more than our budget (we wanted 500baht rooms) the lady in reception said cheaper rooms could come available the next day and we were more than welcome to move to one of those, we just had to come and check early the next morning. The 700 baht room was lovely -clean, spacious and it even had a fridge and tv. It didn't have air con though although this could be added for a price. The next morning we woke early and went to reception where the lady said she would have three 500 baht bungalows to accommodate the six of us. This was a massive bonus and we moved straight in. These bungalows were very basic but just what we needed for a fun cheap stay. They got cleaned every day and we were given fresh towels.
The location I think is great. A little bit further down from the main area means that you are not disturbed by the noise but can still be in the main area after a very short 5 min walk. The beach at this end is also prettier in my opinion.
Would definitely recommend for a place to stay on a budget. The staff at reception were very friendly and also offered free wifi.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a fan bungalow for 500 bht per night. It is a 10 minute walk from Mae Haad and 2 miniutes from the start of Sairee beach. The bungalow was pleasant enough (cleaned daily) with a comfortable double bed, fan, private bathroom with cold water shower, clean towels and in a quite location just back from the road. I have read some of the other reviews making comment about rude staff but I can say that I found the current staff very nice and friendly. If you want somewhere just to crash for a couple of nights then this is a good choice.
