I stayed here for 2 days in November 2013 and just stayed again for 3 days in June 2014.
They now give free wifi and breakfast was included for £26 a night for two people.
Being located next to on the main road it is well located. Cost by ‘van taxi’ into the centre is £1 or 50 bht (they ask for £2). The room was large modern and very attractive with a good effective air conditioning system. It had a large 32 inch modern TV (many channels incl. some English) , a room safe is provided. It boats a good sized bathroom with modern fixtures and a shower with plenty of hot water. Free water, and you can make yourself some tea or coffee.
The breakfast was good in many ways. A choice of drinks, Corn flakes, some Thai and English traditional fayre which they made a good attempt at keeping hot. My suggestion is for a little more choice. E.g. some other cereals, yogurt, two egg offerings per day and someone on hand to cook say a fresh omlete.
Although the hotel is pretty new there are signs of wear and tear… e.g the door to the shower room looked grubby and needed cleaning or some fresh paint. There were coffee stains on the bedside cabinet.
Overall I was very pleased with my stay and would recommend the hotel and stay there again. The value is nearly top rate is the provision. I consider it 4 star and is by far the best Hotel I have stayed in at Koh Samui.
