Lonely Planet review
Family owned and run like clockwork, Dooley's rooms are large and repro Regency, with brocade fabrics and a dark red-and-gold colour scheme. The breakfast is a belt-notch up from most hotel buffets and includes organic porridge, fresh fruit compote and cooked options. The on-site Thai Therapy Centre offers various treatments.
