This is my third review of this hotel and I'm sure there will be a fourth upon my next trip to Samui.
From the moment I checked in I felt welcomed, it was an absolute delight to see the smiles of Jum & Joey at reception and Yut at the front of the hotel. Jum & Joey are two of the most friendly and professional staff at this hotel and both should be very proud of the work they do, they make me want to return again & again. Throughout my visit they take the time to chat and enquire not only about my day but my well being as they knew I had not been well for some days.
The hotel would appear to be making some efforts to change things slightly, there is now an egg cooking stand for breakfast outside whereas before it was behind closed doors in the kitchen. At around 220 baht the breakfast buffet is a now more economical than previous visits and what it may slightly lack in variety on a day to day basis, it makes up for in value.
The ladies who work tirelessly all days cleaning rooms do a great job, always with a smile even at the end of a long day. The beds are pretty comfy for Thai standards, some family members spent 1 night here at the same time and they raved about the comfort level compared to other similarily priced hotels in Thailand.
Wifi works fine for email and badic web browsing. iphone seemed to struggle keeping connected but my Samsung tablet had no problems so I think any connection issues may be device related.
Air conditioning in the room was fabulous, sometimes so good I had to turn it off as it was too cool.
There's a laundry service right across the road from the hotel, a family mart at the end of the street and a couple of 7/11's around the corner as well as some typical cheap eats within a few minutes walk. Timmys tailor shop is just a few doors down and a great thai massage a little further along.
I've never hesitated to recommend this hotel before and continue to do so.
