In February 2009, following a tour of Thailand, we stayed eight nights at this hotel and, although we have experienced some wonderful Asian hotels, we thought that we had landed in Heaven. We travelled into town each night to eat at the street restaurants and mix with the locals/tourists. This trip, at very short notice because it was an "offer" at a known to us hotel, was even better than in 2009, more so because we upgraded to the hotel "Club" class. For folk who take full advantage of these things "Club" is very good value for money but even for we, who do not drink a lot of alcohol nor eat fancy tit-bits, it was well worthwhile, with many very nice touches and nicities. Again, we ate in town and from experience chose Hui Hin Seafood Restaurant in the night market, which, too, has uped its quality/VFM. Brilliant holiday and lovely memories.
