Again, this place isn't luxurious, but offers spacious, comfortable rooms with kitchen, fridge, TV, AC, good wifi and balcony. It has is own restaurant that does breakfast and snacks for fair prices. Unfortunately, the pool was closed when we stayed there, so make sure its opened again befor you book. The place is a bit tricky to find because it...

We stayed at Golden Thistle for our Wedding Anniversary. We had a very good experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was great and the hotel was close to transportation and nearby restaurants.

Horrible hotel Beds should be thrown away, fridge shelves are rusted, cracked tiles in shower, faucets need to be changed, There is nothing great about this hotel Walking distance from the airport. New utensils are needed. And, please buy an ironing board. And, of course a safe would be great. Overpriced

It took me over a month to get over the upset of this place. Lets start at the beginning, I reached there from the Airport, no one was in the reception area, one of the maids called a gentleman who was sitting in what I can assume was the "restaurant area", I could see this person from where I was...

I stayed at the GTH from April 3rd to April 5th 2016 and had a very nice time. Michael the manager was very helpful and the staff was very very polite. The room was clean and the pool area was lovely. It was more of a "villa" than a hotel though. But I enjoyed my stay.

Not a luxury hotel but it's quiet and relaxing and in walking distance to the best beach and night life. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms need some updating but it's still a great place to stay on a budget and the best curry crab and dumpling ever!!!!

Service was good, however this is one of the dirtiest places I've ever been to. I would never stay here again and I would never recommend it to anyone. The pool area is the worst, the tiles on the floor around the pool very nasty I didn't even want my feet to touch the floor, worst yet I refused to...

We spent 7 nights, clearly the place is in need of some upgrading but considering the price the stay was like staying at your old grandmother's house. It was a lot quieter than i expected and the staff was very very friendly. Even the owner was chatty and relaxed with you.We arrived 4 hours after our checking in time and...
