The Bee & B
Ranked #107 of 320 Hua Hin B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This will be our third stay at Bee & B and in our view it just gets better. Now under new management, ("M" and Christophe) it is much improved. Little touches make such a difference, candles in the room with fragrant oil, personalised breakfasts, cannot understand the comment made on 29 November, as they will do anything they can to please, its up to you to say........ Value for money its the only place to stay in Hua Hin. See you again in February 2012.

My husband and I found this guesthouse on Tripadvisor and have just spent 5 nights there over New Year - they only had one room available - the Humblebee room - it's their smallest but is perfectly adequate, with a large seashell-decorated bathroom. We found it to be one of the nicest &B's we've stayed in in Thailand and we've travelled around a lot over the years. The owners were on holiday but their manager, Em (I'm sure she has a fuller thai name!) was fantastic - she catered to our every need (not that we had many) and was so helpful and friendly, that you can't help but smile when you see her! The owners even emailed us to check that we had arrived safely and were happy with our room which I thought was a very nice touch. The breakfasts were cooked at any time of your choosing and the dish differs very day - the Eggs Benedict was our favourite but we had lots of lovely breakfasts there. There is free water and a beer/soft drink every day if you want it. The location is great, just behind the Hua Hin Grand hotel, in a quiet Soi. There's a cut through to the beach near the Veranda Lodge hotel and this takes only 5-10 minutes. There are sunloungers there and beach bars which serve great food to you at the sunbed. The Bee and B is also close to the Hua Hin Grand Night Market which is a smaller version of the main night market but has lots of great food stalls and is frequented by lots of Thai people too. We would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone that prefers a more personal touch - it's a family house and you are made extremely welcome. Had we not wanted to visit any more places in Thailand, we could happily have stayed for several weeks more!

This is a sweet B&B with a cozy atmosphere and good service. It's well located near to the night market and beach. You can have a free soft drink/beer per day, which is a thoughtful perk. They've got a large selection of DVDs you can watch up in your room for no extra charge.

Despite these good points, we felt it wasn't great value for money. Having seen lovely pictures on Tripadvisor of the breakfast, and the description of 'unique gourmet breakfasts' on the website, we were expecting something much better than the standard 2 fried eggs, toast and frankfurter-style sausage we were given every morning. Just to clarify, we are budget-mid range travellers, so never expect anything fancy. In fact, the breakfast at The Bee & B was pretty much what we are always given when we travel in Thailand, and we are normally fine with it too. The problem in this case was that we weren't paying a budget price, so we felt rather short-changed. The high season room rate of 1800 baht p/night for the cheapest room (Humble Bee) seemed over-priced considering its small size (and the lack-lustre breakfast), however sweetly it has been decorated.

Overall, a charming place but I'd only stay here again if the price was reduced by 20% or so to make it seem better value for money.

Thanks for your review. We're sorry you were disappointed by the breakfast. You're absolutely correct that we normally do NOT serve typical breakfasts like fried eggs. To be honest, we were in the middle of changing to a new manager at the time you stayed with us, and the training in that regard was apparently not up to full speed yet. Rest assured, we have corrected this issue and breakfasts have returned to being unique and gourmet.

As a token of goodwill, we would like to offer you a 30% discount on your next stay, at which time you will surely be impressed by the high standard of our breakfast. Hope to see you again soon.

I came across this place looking on trip advisor planning our honeymoon and now that I'm here the place does not disappoint. We are staying in the queen bee room and the place is full of character. Great bathroom and a big wooden bath at the bottom of the bedroom is unique. Great top tip given by the last reviewers to find the place we always ask to go to the grand and it is just behind. The bee and b is situated in an excellent location not far from the grand stadium and night market so have our night sorted for tomorrow. The owners have done an excellent job of the place. Khun M and Gustov have been extremely helpful and very welcoming and have helped us organise our taxi's to where we want to go. If I ever come back to Hua Hin i'd be rebooking the bee and b.

This is a small guesthouse and we stayed in the smallest room Humblebee the room as very clean and well equiped with satalitte TV and DVD player plus free water and a shower with shower gel shampoo etc.Also has a library of DVDs you can borrow to watch No full curtain around the bathroom part means you can be viewed on the toilet from some parts of the room which is a bit weird! The room was small but this was not really an issue and the guesthouse is spacious and offers use of a jacuzzi and provides one free beer a day for guests. Help with trips and arranging laundry were provided by M and her collegues all of whom were extremely friendly and always polite and available when we needed them. Wifi is available free in the rooms as well. Well situated for the main town bar and restaurant area and the night market but beware taxi drivers confusing it with the A & B which happened to us twice. Top tip is to ask for the Grand Hotel as it is just behind there. I would definately recommend the bEE & B to those who want a home away from home.

Room Tip: None you get the rom you have paid for.

We were invited by Bee, Daron and family to spend Songran with them, which was an unforgettable experience. Nothing was too much trouble and it was nice to have Bee on hand to call and book taxis, make reservations and enquiries for us, as she is Thai herself. This included a trip to the local winery and vineyard, which was as good as anywhere in the world.
Our room was very comfortable, unique, spacious and private. The Bee and B is just a short walk from the beach, shopping centre and night market, which had the best and cheapest Thai food in Hua Hin. I would highly recommend the Bee and B to anyone, especially couples as the large, teak bathtub was an especially nice touch.
