“Pure Mediocrity not a great Asian hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This hotel was recommended by a friend. She said the rooms are recently renovated and the location was good...this is TRUE...but that is about it. The location is nice, but there are many other hotels with locations just as good and the grounds of this hotel were terrible....wood rotting where it should be sanded and re varnished...the beach in front of the hotel was Filthy....and we never saw anyone even attempting to clean up. Pool was under renovation and we were not notified and overall we found this to be an aging mediocre resort. We stay in Thailand for Months a year and experience Many hotels....this one is poor choice....look around. That said, we met people who had gotten rooms here through agoda for $80 with breakfast.....if you just want a Bed to sleep in, that rate is good for this dumper.

Safe travels to all! cheers!

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms were small....I wouldn't want to be here....

The Veranda Lodge is not a luxury hotel, but what a location! Within less than a minute of leaving your room you are on the beach. The hotel restaurant makes the most of this advantage and having breakfast by the sound of the waves is a great way to start the day. The modern Village Market Mall is a 5 minute walk away and central Hua Hin is 5 minutes by tuk tuk. The rooms are comfortable and well-kept and boast a good wi-fi connection. In my opinion the rooms are overpriced, but you are paying for the location rather than the facilities, and I would most definitely go back to the Veranda Lodge.

Once you get in Hua Hin the first impression is to be in a big caos of cars, people and smog. You don’t realize that Hua Hin it can be a very relaxing place.

The Veranda Lodge is a small but confortable hotel, just a small lane far from the big caos of the main road. It’s nice, with a lot of green and a nice view over the sea.

Rooms are big and clean. All the people working there were very helpful, besides giving you free mineral water at the reception. The ladies booked for me a massage in the room and a tuck tuck when I left. I found their prices fair enough, considering that in Thailand you have to negotiate prices every time you buy something.

I also ate a couple of times at the restaurant. There were enough choices of breakfast, lunch and dinner and quality/price was much better compared with the touristic restaurant nearby the area. They have facilities on the beach such as umbrellas and chairs. The swimming pool is small, but you really need it when you can go and have a swim in the sea?

I suggest having a walk on the beach in direction of The Hilton hotel. You will easily find the night market, a wonderful Thai experience!

second time to Hua Hin. last time stayed at the AMARI which is a prime hotel but far from the center of town. this time we choose a small 3 star hotel that is not far from the action.
this hotel is located on a the beach with wonderfull "beach life".
the hotel itself is small and not new but uor room was big and very clean.
breakfast was very simple.
the pool is very small and not inviting, but it's no big deal becuse the beach is so nice.
the hotel is a 12 min. walk from the grand market and the modern shopping mall.

Before we left Australia I read some reviews that were not that great but upon arrival the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was so much better than anticipated we had A bungalow right on the beach and we had plenty of room for us and our 4 year old. Would stay here again it was very nice and relaxing recommend this place when in Hua Hin. Fantastic beach side location.

You'd stay here because it's right on the beach, and it's on the right beach.

The room is fine - spacious, clean but nothing fancy. It reminds me of a well set out beach house. My villa room was 20 metres from the beach. It wasn't the most private room but I didn't see anyone else so maybe that doesn't really matter.

The service was a bit flakey but not unpleasant. I got everything I wanted, not immediately but eventually.

The free breakfast was OK but after two days I stopped eating it.

There is a really cool beach bar/cafe 20 metres away where everyone hangs out. It really is a lot of fun. I chatted to people from all around the world. The food is very good and cheap. The beer was also cheap. We wanted cocktails but were told there were none but then later the owner approached me and said 'we have cocktails now' but we kinda didn't care by then.

I had no complaints with the Verandah Lodge. It was good value for money. There are animals in cages which I did not like. There are little bungalows in the lush garden setting which are cute, but I think they aren't as private as the main villa.

Everyone is relaxed and easy going here, but not very professional.

The pool isn't very big but it is beautiful.

Overall this isn't the cheapest place to stay but it is right on the beach which is worth the price.

Room Tip: -stay in the villa -get a room as close to the beach -don't stay near the pool - it's nois...
