Good location and attractive building. The room was spacious and pleasantly furnished, and the bedding and towels were of good quality. The pool area, whilst compact, was ok for chilling. The staff were obliging when approached, but appeared mostly disinterested in guests and their welfare. The male staff in Reception appeared to spend their shift sprawled on the sofa in...

I spent 8 nights at Motive ending last week. Great location on the main highway, currency conversion booth next door (98.7% rate from US to THB!), many good restaurants, massage, bars, laundry, pharmacy, 7-11, etc nearby... and very close to the main road that heads to the beach, where most dive shops, souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, and massage are located....

We decided to stay here over Christmas as we have been backpacking staying in budget accommodation and wanted to stay somewhere a bit nicer. Our room was nice and spacious however we noticed a really bad smell in one corner of the room (we decided not to move rooms as had unpacked everything and the smell wasn't that bad as...

This small budget hotel is conveniently located opposite to Bang Niang Market which offers many eating and drinking options. The beach is also about a 15 minute walk which is not too bad. The room itself was nice and clean with all the amenities you would expect such as cable TV, A/C, fridge, hairdryer, hot water etc. There is also...

We hired a moped from the lady next door which was approx £7 for the day, we drove to the Navel Base to the turtle sanctuary, what a great day but remember to bring your...

you get what you pay. that means don't expect too much as this is just an accomodation without any of a higher standard like in the big resorts. but the rooms are kept clean and the aircondition is working. :-) also free wifi which connects great, although loads not very fast. video streaming could be a problem if you need...

We spent a week here with a group of friends. The rooms are fantastic , staff lovely. Location is noisy but the whole area is on a busy road and you can't escape it - opt for a room towards the rear on first floor. Great value and a strong option we would stay again. Restaurant at the front of...

Close to the Khao Lak action at Bang Niang, Motive Cottage is on the "highway" through town, across the road from the "Main Street" where many shops and restaurants are to be found. So while there is highway noise (nicely masked by the pool's waterfall), you don't get the noise of the massed crowds that likely run from dusk to...

Beautiful hotel close to everything. Walking distance to the best massage we had in Thailand this trip!!!! Well clean and serviced apartment, nice pool. The breakfast is not worth $200 bath but there are great cafes 5minutes walking from the property. Worth your trip!!!
