“Great Location”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Stayed here for 10 nights in sky pool suite. The location of the hotel is perfect and although there are not sea views from the room it is right on the beach which is beautiful golden sand. There is a small night market right across the road and its a 10 minute walk (or £2 taxi ride and it was hot and humid when we were there plus pavements not very good) to the main night market.

The room was large, clean had everything you could possibly want, massive bathroom with free standing stone bath, lovely rainfall shower. The pool is under cover and therefore cold and we didn't use it as much as I thought we might.

The pool area is great, plenty of sunbeds, there was never a time when there weren't some free and the hotel was busy, we were a bit worried that we might loose our beds when we went to lunch but it never happened. There are 2 beach bars fairly close by with reasonably priced and very nice food, good range of drinks. You can buy just about anything on the beach but the traders don't hassle you and move away as soon as you say no.

Loved the main night market, so much seafood, had lovely scallops barbecued in their shells, you can feast like a king for under a tenner! Plenty of choice of both restaurants and bars, Snack Jacks was my favourite.

Breakfast is very extensive in the hotel, I unfortunately discovered cake which was not good for my waist line as so delicious! We didn't eat in the resurant in the evening we did plan to go to the seafood buffet, but after the choice at the market thought it was disappointing and expensive in comparison.

Rocks bar is lovely, romantic candle lit with lovely seating and a great view out to sea with all the fishing boats twinkling on the horizon.

The internet access is good and you can pick it up everywhere, also reasonable selection of satellite channels and they have a DVD library as well. The staff are extremely courteous and polite, so all in all a great hotel.

My wife and I stayed for our anniversary back in July (2013) and we had an amazing time. Everything was perfect for the two of us. We aren't very picky travelers in the first place, but Cape Nidhra far exceeded any of our expectations.

The hotel is conveniently located right across the street from one of the night markets and was walking distance (15-20 mins) from most places we wanted to visit.

The room was absolutely lovely. It was well-decorated and modern. The staff were all extremely friendly and the breakfast is amazing!

My wife and I also decided to take the Thai cooking class and we both agree that it was something we'll always remember and cherish. It feels like you're taking a part of your trip back home with you when you learn to cook dishes from the country you visit.

We'd definitely recommend this boutique hotel to all those interested in visiting the Hua Hin area.

My wife and I went away with some friends for a few days in Hua Hin and found this little gem of a hotel . The food was great at breakfast , the hotel has a great use of timber and steel that gives it a modern yet warm feeling . The pool area was great and being right on the beach it was very nice to get the sea breezes . Having a private pool outside our room was a great add-on also . Very nice staff and very convenient to all the fun restaurants down town also . Give it a try .

Stayed here Sept - Oct 2013 for two weeks. The ground floor pool room was one of the largest hotel rooms we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Private pool huge (6m x 4m). Breakfast was outstanding. Staff excellent, Manager friendly and informative. Even though the hotel is very narrow you hardly notice it, good central location close to shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you need to catch-up on the suntan book a rooftop room if your not worried about the tan any room...

We stayed in Cape Nidhra for 10 nights leaving on 27th September and all our expectations were exceeded. We stayed in a Garden Room which had all you needed and more, if you like a larger pool then go for this, you could get lost in the bathroom. Service in all areas from reception to your room was excellent and consistent, with every member of staff saying hello to you as you passed. An amazing standard to achieve.

Breakfast was excellent from the range, quality and amount even when you went in just before closing. The managers cocktail evening is worth going to and Christian is a great host who really listens to his guests and takes action when he can. We had a late check-out and he personally ensured that we had somewhere to stay, ensuring that we could enjoy our last day. Thank you.

The location is just right to walk into Hua Hin and get at Tuk Tuk back for 100 b, but say your price before you get in with confidence. Do venture down the bar streets as it is great for watching the world going by, but go with an open mind. Try Ko Seafood on the night market, price and quality outstanding.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone if you want a special place, excellent service with no fuss and a location where you are not to close to the centre but close enough

As guest who are sill enjoying our fabulous stay at the Cape Nidhra,my partner and I felt we would like to thank the amazing staff and Chistian the manager for our wonderful experience at this superb hotel . We are staying in the moon deck suite room 152 which is spacious and immaculately clean own private pool and on two floors. One word of caution please watch your footing when coming down the stairs from the decking area especially if wet which can lead to a whole new holiday experience as my partner found out!!!! After falling and having to call reception for help I can not thank the staff enough for their prompt help and continuing Care .
The breakfast is by far the best we have experienced on our travels with something for everyone even the fussiest of taste .
First rate hotel and staff ,good location for the many bars and restaurants only a short walk away also night market and seven 11 over road . Highly recommend the Cape Nidhra.

Superb suits, nice pool terrace, clean, modern, good food, an ok beach and world class customer service. Internet works threw out the hotel/pool/terrace, breakfast is splendid and the pool somewhat cold. I can really recommend this hotel to the sophisticated traveler. Not a family with small children hotel per say but a nice fit for little people. Mostly German guests.

Attention: the suit showers are only a millimeter adjustment from luke warm to scolding hot. Do not let children under 14 operate the showers alone. It's an accident waiting to happened.

My only complaint was the pool service, everyone working there was real nice guys, but they had no structure in serving beverages to the guests. They would hang out up to 6 people by the pool towels instead of every 15/20 take a swipe by the pool,lower deck or beach with the pool menu.
I heard several people complaint about the same thing.

The hotel would up their gross profit by selling more drinks, soda and food to the pool guests.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as close to the beach as possible!
