This hotel has a lot to offer. At first glance you may be put off because it isn't centrally located and the street is very industrial. The rooms are lovely. They are clean and have nice touches. The property is well maintained and the grounds are landscaped well. Our first room was the farthest from the pool and did not have an outside sitting area or balcony. During the first of three nights, we were woken up by the sound of some creature scrabbling in the ceiling of our room. As if that were not enough - it began to make a chirping-clucking sound about every 30 minutes. It was so loud that it seemed to be in the room. We should have changed rooms, but returned so late our second night, we just hoped that the creature had moved on. Not so! At midnight it began again. We changed rooms at 1am, and our new room was excellent. No complaints. It was on the second floor, quiet, small sitting area overlooking the garden. Excellent. The manager was very apologetic, offered us free massages, free soaps, very sweet. The hotel breakfast was more than adequate, beds were fine, bathroom and shower all good. It's a little far from town but they do provide a Tuk-Tuk shuttle, and who wants to be in town? The idea is to get out of town, but the neighborhood is a little gritty. We ate in one of the local places nearby and the food was clean and cheap.
