Just checked in the hotel and i feel silly for not checking reviews. My favourite spot was booked so for last minute arrangements i choose this hotel. Check in was a bit delayed. The room is relatively clean but extremely outdated. The air conditioning is loud and barely works...don't know how i will sleep tonight. The kitchen is a bit of a disaster...there is a sign at front desk saying do not cook yet there is a scary looking stove but no microwave or toaster oven which is more practical if you want to discourage cooking. The towels look like they have had better days like 15 years ago, there is inadequate facilities to rest your toiletries in the bath. The refrigerator bearly chills The pool looks....okay but i may never get to use it as it is only opened between 9am - 6pm and if you are like me you want to spend your days out of the hotel. Would i recommend it at this price...no, maybe at half the price. Trust me it's not worth it paying extra for a pool that due to restrictions you may never use. There are little guest houses in the area with much more updated facilities for less the price. Don't do like me and book at the last minute due to desperation!!!!!

I visited GT in September 2015. GT needs an upgrade but other than that, I cannot fault them. The place is very quaint, clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating. My 2 year old loved the pool! I would stay there again and I'd recommend to those looking for a convenient, clean, quiet an affordable place to stay.

Golden Thistle Hotel “Very clean”
This property has it all. Great food, service, amenities and room very clean. Free wi-fi. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended for family. Definitely convenient to everything: airport, beaches like 5 mins away, food places and nightlife spots... It was a relaxing and comfortable time spent there and i had alot of fun!!!!

Golden Thistle hotel was far beyond what i expected...The place was quite clean,rather cosy and also had a friendly staff.. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a fun filled vacation because it is located walking distance from store bay as well as some of the nightlife hot spots and the airport. If you're a home cooked meal kind person. it has a well enough stocked kitchen equipped with stove and utensils. i couldn't be more satisfied with this establishment so hats off to the persons in charge...

Golden Thistle really should be referred to as a Guest House rather than be called a Hotel. As Hotel's come with certain expectations Golden Thistle had none of those expectations. The place could do with a little upgrade as there was no microwave or electric kettle in the room. The pool could do with tiling or a nice paint job. Housekeeping was not consistent in the cleaning of the rooms. All in all it was a more or less comfortable stay as we spent most of our days outdoors and only use the rooms for sleeping purposes.
