I stayed in this Hotel for 3 nights. I was shocked when I first pulled into the Hotel to see the state of the road outside the Hotel. It is currently like a building site as the local council repair it. I was very uneasy about walking along it and would not have stayed here had I known the state of the road conditions before booking. The hotel offered a complimentary tuk-tuk service to the main road which we used and it was a great help.
My other issue was with the hotel staff who were of no help to me in getting a taxi. I asked reception to get me and my girlfriend a taxi, that would use the meter and bring us to the Grand Palace. The only taxi they could find was one that was charging a fixed price and was triple the cost when compared to the meter (managed to get a taxi back using the meter and found out how badly I had been ripped off). I was very unhappy with the service provided. Hotel staff should be trying to help tourists avoid scams like this and not tell the guest "its a good price sir".
Leaving the above comments to one side the hotel itself was very nice. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was good with plenty of variety to suit everyone.
