worth of money
The hotel staff was very helpful and allowed early checked in. The room was facing the sea at Gurney beach. It was very spacious, with a wide bed, sofa and tv set. It is also complete with iron and board in the cupboard. the bathroom was also very spacious with bath tub and shower that you can choose. The set up was so cozy and you can view the sea while enjoying tea from your sofa. The location of the hotel is very good for those who don't like to be at the crowded area. I will surely recommend this hotel to family and friends to stay.

A place to stay
The Gurney Resort Hotel is next to the sea. Room is spacious. The split air-cond unit controller is not available for adjustment, which is a little disappointment.

Service lower than average
Went to the hotel at 6pm and requested 2 single bed but the room is not ready to cater the request. Need to wait for the housekeeping after check in. The service is very poor compared to last time i checked in last 3 years.
