Fabulous 8.6 From 116 reviews

Very good 8.0
Value for money
My feedback takes into account the price for the accommodation. It was a phenomenally good rate for a 2 bedroom Apartment. I knew it was 3 stars when we booked, so expectations were where they should be. The room is great with all the necessary facilities. Air con, fridge, bath and shower. The bed was made of concrete, I bought a pillow for 100 baht at the Big C and used it when I lay on my side, which got me through the 2 weeks ok. (Will never take my bed for granted again). Still - I do not regret staying here. The staff are LOVELY, the location is out of the way, but grab app meant under 100 baht anywhere in the city. Breakfast was ok for 2 out of 4 of us - I'm vegan and my youngest child is extremely fussy, so we just bought some staples and had breakfast in the room the 2 of us... which was actually relaxing anyway, no rushing in the morning. The other 2 enjoyed breakfast of sausage and egg and toast etc. The pool was heavy with chemicals... I couldn't stay in because it hurt my skin and my son and husbands nipples actually scabbed over from being in there less than an hour. Ouch. We went to tube trek another day so they got their swimming in some way. I loved that the room was made up for us every day, water replaced also. Despite the few imperfections, we would stay here again. It's quaint and friendly and we don't let little things get in the way of a good time. Staff really do make a difference though, happy and positive attitude is infectious.

ALOHA Lovely tucked away property. Just a few suggestions: 1. Please replace pool towels as they are old, no absorption and do not dry. 2. Please replace bed pillows as many gu3sts have allergies for health and hygiene cleanliness from previous guests. Mattresses could definitely use a pillow top on top of mattress as very hard. 3. Lower chemicals in pool - being an every day swimmer I could not use. 4. This is a great place and just a few touches could make this a higher *STAR* Hotel. The Team was sooo kind to me as have been in hospital and they helped me recover. Mahalo Aunty Sydney

Fair 4.0
The bed here was like a plank! Most uncomfortable with bits sticking up in it. They do not have mattress toppers but did put a couple of continental quilts on under the sheet. This did not make much difference. We stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks and our room was directly under construction going on directly above us. For the first week or so our hot water was intermittent. The staff are all really lovely and helpful.

Good 6.0
Not worth it
My stay here was just ok. One of the first nights I stayed here, a cockroach crawled across my bed as I was getting ready to go to sleep. I told the staff the next day and they were apologetic. A few days later, I saw a pest control truck which leads me to believe this wasn't an isolated incident. Pool chairs are coming apart, the linens were often frayed, my duvet even had a hole in it that was conveniently tucked into the bed to conceal it. The cafe nearby had a better breakfast for a similar price. I will say, the grounds are very attractive. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Not as nice as it seems from the pictures
The room wasn't ready until late in the day and they weren't very friendly or accommodating. There were no toiletries and the room was older and more run-down than expected from the pictures. The pool was undergoing construction and was dirty and small. Overall, this was a letdown.
