After reading many reviews about the hotels in Chumphon, we wanted something that was both comforting & relaxing. After our flight & train right up from Hat Yai, with delays we were both so ready to collapse in our hotel. Arriving at 1pm, we found only motorcycles at the train station, both of which were unable to understand us very well. We were extremely lucky, as a local who spoke very good English explained we needed a ride to A-Te. If you are traveling by train and arriving at night, I would also suggest printing a map, as the hotel is nicely located near the train station, and you might not be so lucky upon arrival with tuk tuks/motorbikes.
Upon arrival, the lady at the desk checked us in nice and quickly, after our very long/delayed train, we were both ecstatic to see both robes, towels, a beautiful room, with lovely amenities, coffee & kettle! It felt like luxury, plus the bed is huge, at least big enough for four!
Breakfast, a buffet was also lovely! We were very grateful for a lovely stay in Chumphon as I know Chumphon is more of a stop over location, so is rather limited in general for accommodation.
The hotel were also very helpful upon booking our boat to Koh Tao, and organised our transportation also.
We liked A-Te so much that we decided to book for our return journey also. This stay was good, they had dvd's available for the rooms, and room service. Though we were a little disappointed by the food, it wasn't that great and arrived a little cold.
I have to say all round they were fantastic, we were leaving in the morning for the first train out, and they packed a very nice breakfast box up for our journey, would highly recommend.
