“Dissappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2010

I read the reviews and did my homework before i booked here but was dissappointed with this hotel. It served its purpose as a place to sleep but the hotel ,and it can be seen it was once quite a good hotel, but has slipped in maintenance and upkeep to a two star level . It is shoddy , the carpets need replacing and we broken wardrobe doors in our room. it was rather depressing.

We also had an incidence with the laundry. We used the hotels laundry and when it was returned , a bright yellow dress of my partner came back brown and a brand new green dress came back pale blue. Some of the other items were also discoloured. Obviously a bleech was used. When we spoke to the staff about it they were very apologetic and said they didn't know how it could happen and it had never happened before but no offer of replacement was made and when i suggested that we should not pay for the laundry service of those damaged items was met with blank looks.

The breakfast was not that good. I usually eat thai food (by that i mean non restaurant thai food) but this was not even good street level thai food and was full of msg and sugar so i had toast and fried egg and fruit .

We were also woken about 12 one night by room service. They had stuffed up the room numbers in the kitchen and it should have been to a room a couple of doors up.

Incidently , my Thai partner said she wanted a massage but was told the service was only available for men.

If only there was a better hotel in the 700 THB range in Chanthburi i would use it. We will return only because there is nothing better in that price range that i know of.

The new travel lodge is a good value for money hotel, combining a resturant inside with a barbaque and beer garden, out side in season. The food is average but can be good depending on your choice, I have stopped here three times, but this year moved to the K.P Grand as when there are weddings,of which (there are quite a few) the pool becomes unavailable to other guests. Having paid for this facaulty, this is unexceptable when you cannot use the pool for five days out of eight. as happened last year. This is part of your holiday. I am a gem buyer and the good lady chills out shopping and around the pool while i am at the gem market. No pool one unhappy girl? The staff are great any other problems ask for jack one of the managers he is magic. Over all you will always get accomadation here if you are stuck. the new travel lodge is ok for a couple of nights but due to the swimming pool problem i would stop else were if staying longer

  • Liked — NIGHT TIME BEER GARDEN
  • Disliked — SWIMMIMG POOL UNAVAILABLE DURING WEDDINGS OF WHICH THERE A LOTS

The hotel is neat, clean and tidy with a pool to mirror this. Air-con is loud and will provide you with dreams of being in a driving truck and the temperature can be adjusted to off/Saharan, cold, colder, arctic.

All in all worth the money and if you are into Asian breakfasts you will love the mornings, if not then you will have to make do with toast, jam and greasy eggs . . . astonishingly the fruit assortment is poor, considering that it is in the middle of THE Thai orchard area.

If you are visiting Chantaburi in Thailand, you could do a lot lot worse than staying at the New Travel Lodge. For a very cheap hotel its quality is amazing. All the rooms are clean and tidy, with their own bathrooms, and cable tv. Food wise the menu has a choice of either local or western food. The hotel also has massage and a pool. The staff are very warm and friendly and always try to accommodate your needs. The New Travel Lodge is definately a cheap and cheery place just, the place to stop and relax during your stay in the amazing Chantaburi.
