All that we needed. Clean, comfortable, basic, and quiet. Good location and walking distance to all you need. (markets, shops, restaurants, beach etc) Staff were friendly, helpful (supplied us with scooters for $4 US per day!) The stairs were a bit funky and steep, but then again who really needs to haul suitcases when back packs are so much easier!...

This guest house we found was distinctly average. Our tv didn't work, bed was broken, curtains let loads of light in, wifi wasn't great, fridge was warm and the shower flooded the whole bathroom. The stairs are really steep as well, with no lift available. Makes it hard to haul luggage up when the steps are uneven. The owners were...

Glad you liked us, but sorry you weren't satisfied with the room. If you would have made us aware of any issues while you were here, then we could have resolved them while you were still here. The TV was an easy fix, the channels just had to reprogrammed via the remote. The Fridge was an easy fix, the dial...

While the accommodation is basic it is very good and well priced. The staff are absolutely fantastic. They couldn't do enough to help you. They offered recommendations and suggestions, made a number of bookings for us and sorted any issues promptly.

Stayed here for 3 days. A very simple , no frills place to stay. Conveniently located on the main road with lots of places to eat nearby. Very courteous staff - they help you out with bookings for taxis and ferries. Not meant for a luxurious holiday, good for a budget travel.

I was suppose to stay only 1 night but the place is clean and the location is good. So i have stayed 2 more nights. Penzy and her husband are very nice and friendly. They have arranged my airport transfer. See you soon in Koh Samui :-)

The managers/owners of this place are absolutely amazing! While the location, if you like to party, isn't the best - it is still within a reasonable Walking distance. Close to the beach, great prices, calm at night and clean rooms. I highly recommend this guesthouse!

4 of us stayed here mid October for 3 nights. Rooms are clean and also cleaned daily with fresh bedding and towels. The owner was very helpful and arranged onward transport for us and day trips. It's a short walk off the main road which keeps the noise down at night but close enough to be near it. Would certainly...

They are very helpful if you want to do activities or day trips and will organise it for you! The rooms are very clean and offer everything you need plus a DVD player! Really great place for...
