It is rather stretching it to describe this place as a mansion, but it’s not a bad choice for somewhere cheap and clean to sleep. There are better budget places available in Ao Nang these days, for example the Top View, the J Hotel, the Oriental Guest House, Harvest House, Phra Nang Flora House and the Titti Guest House (though of these only the Top View and J Hotel are near the beach). The stairways are as gloomy as some of the staff here, but the rooms are clean and smell OK.
The bathrooms are a bit tired, with some signs of mould and stains visible, but are not so bad as to offend the seasoned budget traveller. The balconies could use a coat of paint, but afford decent views from the upper floors. Some have better sea-views than others. If you want to book a room with a nice view, contact us and we’ll make sure you get a room with a view, the guest house is only 200 metres from our office, so one of us will go round and choose one that suits your requirements.

Breakfast here is adequate, and improved greatly if you walk to nearby Ocean Mart and buy some decent bread, then ask the staff to toast that for you in place of the sweet, white stuff that masquerades in this and all other budget hotels in Thailand. If you book through us we’ll give you a free, fresh, quality baker’s loaf on arrival. Don’t eat lunch or dinner in the hotel, as there are better and cheaper places nearby.
