We arrived here after travelling overnight to Phi Phi and so were all tired and hungry. The woman who from reading other reviews I assume is "Mrs lee" handed us 1 menu between 4. During this time my boyfriend went to use the toilet. Mrs Lee then came to take our order and we asked for 5 minutes to decide...

I stayed here in 2003 and had a fight with the owner and ended up leaving as she threatened to call the police(she seems to be great friends with them).On returning to Thailand last year I made the mistake of staying here again as a friend arrived on the island before me and was staying there.what amazes me is there...

Miss Lee is a crook! She in it for the money and doesn't care about anyone else, pretty sad that ya can't get a new towel for 3 days and the A/C is set at 22! What a joke! More rules than a supermax prison! She also try's to tell people that she works for someone and is just the...

Everytime i think that i've slept in the worst bed possible in SE Asia, the next place is worse. Banthai dies not disappoint. Rock hard bed, flat hard pillow. Sweat box room with way if getting air in. It is however clean, and the owner is really nice, despite the complaints in previous reviews about her. She does expect you...

One of the worst most over priced, places to stay on Phi Phi, don't stay here ! The lady "Miss Lee" and her staff were rude, time-wasting and only talked about there many rules and the the fines if you broke them. (Changing the air con temp, unacceptable, no remote to prove this). Shower stunk of rotten eggs, and was...

Friendly staff and affordable rooms. I always stay here when I'm on the island. Always lots of scandinavians. Miss Lee who runs the place is great. Very helpful, funny and kind. Perfect location as well.

We stayed at Banthai for 3 nights. I would say that the critic to Miss Lee is not deserved at all. Respect her property like you would respect anyones and she's a lovley sweet lady. If you're ignorant and don't care what she's saying, she will treat you the same way, like most normal people. Miss Lee is the reason...

Ok so I saw the reviews on here and thought twice about my booking but went anyway. As it turns out Ms Lee is a lovely lady the only thing is she is very traditional. It's tradition in Thailand to take off your shoes and she only asks you to wash them before you go to your room to keep...
