The staff very extremely rude when checking out . We gave a 500 Baht key deposit at the start however they refused to give it back because they had booked us in the wrong room. Then staff were very rude to us, threatened to call the police when we had done nothing wrong - it wasn't out fault they booked...

I have stayed here twice, once before the renovation and the second time after. The guesthouse is very basic with an average swimming pool. I stay here because of its location which is perfect if you want to be near bars and restaurants. The rooms are ok but the budget ones are quite high up and with no elevator it's...

Not much attention to the rooms here: the mattresses on our twin beds were saggy (in stark contrast to the universally very firm mattresses in every other hotel on our three-week trip), and the sheets were worn and a bit stained, though they did seem to be clean. There was graffiti on one of the bed frames that dated back...

Freshly painted red and white colour building, very eye catching and can be a land mark if you cannot find your way back in the first few days. One female staff can speak very good English but the rest not so good but they were all very helpful. Originally we had a room on the 2nd floor but the wet...

Not a bad little guest house to stop for a few nights. It needs work but the owner/manager readily admitted it to us. The room was clean but a little dark and almost dingy. The air con was antiquated and we were not afforded the luxury of the remote control so it was either 'on' at full blast, or 'off'....

I managed to, in a rush to catch my flight to Phuket, leave my money belt in the room somewhere. I emailed them as soon as I could using their provided contact email asking if we could organise some way to get the money (not just Thai Baht but also Australian Dollar, Indian Rupee & Malaysian Ringit) inside, my passport...

We stayed here for one week and really enjoyed it there. The rooms would need some makeover as the furniture is rather old but the communal area of the hotel looks amazing! Very nice pool and the best bartender we have ever met- this guy really deserves a medal for his cocktails and service. We would definitely stay there again!

Me and my boyfriend are backpacking around SE Asia and stayed at The Royal Guest House for three nights. We really enjoyed our time here... Staff were extremely helpful, when I called and asked if we could check in earlier they organised this and it was ready for when we arrived. The location is excellent, just a 10 minute walk...
