The location of the Cape Nidhra is very central in Hua Hin and it is only a short walk to the mall in one direction and the restaurant strip and night market in the other (there is also a night market across the road). We were a bit shocked that the hotel is on the main road through town but once on the hotel grounds you wouldn't know it (there is no road noise and the road is hidden from view by the reception building). Crossing the street out front of the hotel was a bit hairy at times though.
We stayed in a Garden Pool Suite which was a good size and had its own private pool. The room was well appointed and we couldn't fault the furnishings or cleanliness. the bed was humongous! Our pool wasn't heated though and was too cold to use during our stay which was disappointing. Beach bags and other handy stuff were provided in the room for guest use which was a nice touch.
The bathroom was huge and had high end fittings throughout. The rainfall shower and massive tub were both highlights and a good spread of toiletries were restocked daily. However; the bathroom lights required a visit to two different panels of switches to turn all the lights on. A minor issue until you need to whizz in the middle of the night and have to figure out which switch turns the toilet light on.
Wi-fi and breakfast was included in our room rate which is always welcome. We didn't have any issues accessing wi-fi while we were there and staff provided us with enough passwords for all our devices. The breakfast buffet was good with a wide variety of choices and changes in the menu from day to day.
Staff were helpful and attentive throughout our stay. A special shout out goes to the security guards out front who were very friendly and always good for a chat and directions.
The Cape Nidhra is a really good hotel and should definitely be on your short list if you are looking for accommodation in Hua Hin.
