I have stayed in a number of nice, crisp and stylish Novotels before. But this property is old and needs some TLC. The room was a decent enough size but had some fairly basic maintenance issues that had been neglected, the most annoying of which was the sliding door that would never shut properly and jammed all the time meaning the AC disabled. Breakfast was very expensive at over 400 THB a person and not worthy of the price. Food on the whole ranged from average to pretty good.
The location was far from ideal too. Although the hotel offers nice sea views, its not really in Hua Hin! We rented a motorbike because the hotel shuttle service was not frequent enough and it was a good 20 minutes drive to town. On the one occasion we did use the shuttle, a large man wearing a Hawaiian shirt tried to hustle us for fares back to the hotel and to the airport, far from the professional standard I expect from Novotel. The pool was huge although most of it was only knee deep and absolutely full of screaming kids, especially on the weekend. The gym was good though and service in general was okay.
I would not recommend nor stay at this property again.
