Hotel looks good, rooms are big, restaurant has good food but the way to aonang center/beach is paved with trash and smell. maybe the hotel should have a free shuttle to center. No restaurant or bar available in the hotel after breakfast.

The rooms are cleaner and much bigger than we expected. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Two spoke very good English and the others tried very hard and if they couldn't understand would find someone who did.

The breakfast was good with a few options and omelettes made fresh. The pool area is very clean but small and enclosed. Not a good spot to hang out.

The shower was great with a huge head and good pressure. It's like being under a waterfall!!

It's a little out of the main strip which was lovely for a short walk during the day (maybe 5 mins onto the main street) but a bit worrying walking back late at night for two young girls. You could easily get a cheap tuk tuk back if you needed.

There isn't a lot around the area, two massage places and a few restaurants. You're better off heading into the main strip where you can get everything.

I stayed here for 5 nights during a visit to Ao Nang and found the place to be excellent. The rooms are very spacious and kept nice and clean. The bed is large and comfortable and the bathroom is nice with an excellent shower.

Breakfast was good and always had plenty of choice and the staff were really excellent. In fact I cannot say enough for how pleasant and helpful they were. 10/10.

Location is good, it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the main street in Ao Nang and from there you can walk an additional 10 minutes to Ao Nang beach or you can catch a tuktuk.

Great value for money and I would come back here again.

The only downside if any, was that the rooms could do with a slight spruce up, a touch of paint here and there. It is only once you stay a few nights that you start noticing these things, it certainly wouldnt put me off staying there again though.

Room Tip: We were in the ground floor bedroom and I didnt like that our balcony was caged in like a prison, so...

It is situated near the beach and has convenient stores within reach. The room we were given was generous in space and were amply clean.Service was courteous and warm! One note: Apparently, the items in the minibar are cheaper than what was sold outside.

We stayed here for 4 nights and for the price this hotel is excellent!
Staff were very friendly.
Breakfast had a good choice.
Good location, you have to walk a couple of minutes to the main road then you can jump into a tuk tuk to take you to the main bay of ao nang where all the restaurants are which costs about 80p.
Get a longtail to railay beach and also phra nang beach which are both beautiful.
Also get a longtail out to poda island, takes about 20 mins but its a lot quieter with a long sandy beach, it's beautiful.
Good restaurants that are right on your doorstep here are 'carnivore' which has the best steak ever, cooked to perfection, and also 'the hilltop' go earlier to have a drink watching sunset, it's high up so you get a great view, then stay for dinner, lovely Thai food in a lovely setting.
Overall lovely hotel and would definitely stay again!
