I was just passing through when I stayed at this property. I was looking for something that is both inexpensive and comfortable. They clearly cater to English speaking people and their staff communicates well in English. The bed was the most comfortable I slept in during my two weeks in Thailand. While it was a typically firm bed, it wasn't... More

This was the 5th year we have stayed there and once again most enjoyable, excellent service and facilities, great food and drinks, handy to everything for us, quiet - no noisy guests. We have the deluxe room as it is just that little bit more comfortable and with the reduced prices makes very good value. Barry

More than anything else, the Retreat offers comfort and quiet for the money. There are both long-term apartments and daily rooms. Especially if you're British, you'll feel at home. My room was nice and a decent size: a comfortable, large bed; good A/C; a fan too; very quiet; great Internet. And the staff - all of whom were very pleasant... More

Really enjoyed the retreat. Picked up and dropped off at the airport. Location is in a quiet area with one long straight road into the city centre, with cheap moped rental from the resort, all of which made my stay a very pleasant one. Staff were excellent and room was absolutely great value. Glad i choose this place and would... More

I want to start by saying everything about the place was great.The only thing i could think that someone could complain about is the distance from the traffic.(but it's a retreat).

“Some "regular" rooms with aircon are nearly as good as the "Delux" rooms and are a better bargan... just as comfortable.”
 of 5 bubbles Kokomo_Man, 9 Mar 2014 | Read review
“This past time, I had a deluxe room on the upper level at the front side of the complex. It cost 200 baht more per night, but was nearly 2X the size of the regular room. A larger TV, a Sitting couch that could be extended into an extra bed. The one wall was completly tinted windows with a sliding door overlooking the pool/courtyard. Well worth the extra money. I have based my comparison against 3 other Guesthouses, and 1 apartment complex that I have stayed in.”
