Like a previous reviewer, we chose this hotel as it looked like it would be a cut above some of the other options in the area and because it was close to the historical park.
We found the experience to be a real let down, although with improvements this hotel certainly could have potential.
The location is about half way between "New Sukothai" (the centre of the current, modern town which is where all the restaurants and middle end hotels are) and Sukothai Historical Park. In reality, the two areas are about 15mins apart by tuk tuk. So staying at this hotel, you find yourself stranded at a fairly out of the way location which isn't significantly closer to the historical park than many other options.
The restaurant is - let's face it - bad. We are huge fans of Thai food, and ate very, very well throughout our trip. The restaurant here was an exception, serving both the worst and the most expensive meal we had on our trip. The atmosphere at the restaurant is pretty grim, with a large space, wedding style round table and covered chairs, and bright lighting. The food at dinner is extremely bland Westernized Thai food. The food at breakfast is middle of the road to be charitable. If you stay here, recommend you go out to the city centre to eat.
Many of the staff are eager to please, but a number seem very turned off by customer service and were not very helpful. The poor English of a lot of the staff was an issue, as well.
On the plus side, the resort is very green, the design is new (although I agree with another previous reviewer who felt it all looked pretty cheap underneath), the rooms fairly clean, and the pool area nice.
My impression was they had a lot of tour groups coming through, so perhaps don't need to work that hard to impress customers.
Overall, I feel there must be better options in the area and probably at a better price.
