“Best room what I found in Chumpon”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

If you don't have friends, love or other serious reason to stay in Chumpon, A-Te can be the only memorable place there - city looks for me one of the most boring in Thailand (however the province is beautiful around). Nice clean rooms, comfy bed, good bathroom, polite staff. Also beautiful swimming pool with stylish sunbeds - all looks much more expensive that really is! Can say 0 about free breakfast, because as usual we missed it.

Why not excellent for me: just small epizode on check-out:

price on Agoda there much less than on reception (i never could get it here in Asia - hotels pay 15-20%, so why don't to offer at least same rate to the good guys and save that? - but here local stuff stop understanding and speak English - "technical error:).

So, when the next day we decided to stay 1 more night, with Agoda again, hotel manager come and told us that we can't book the room on same check-in day. I said, that
- if we have Agoda confirmation, all is fine, remember yesterday?!
- "it was exception and now we trying to solve it with Agoda!" - was the answer.
- "So, give us a time to check-out then and say good bye to you".
- in 3 min. "I just spoke with the owner and we can do same price for you, so all is cool".

- Ok. give us please twin room now, we will save some cash for drinking.
- Ok. but last night you book single room, and for 2-nd person we have 200 THB extra"
- last night we just booked 2 DBL rooms in Agoda, for 2 persons price was same as for 1 or 1/2 - twin or DBL - check it please - let's be informed how much your hotel costs!
- But in fact it was just 1 of you in each room, so 200 THB more and no breakfast (yes, we missed it, but i always have a hope)...

And for some misterious caprice of destiny here I recalled, that we can just reach the train station and go out from Chumpon. What in fact we did.

Room Tip: Use Agoda - its probably bad ugly people owns it (i had a reasons to suppose it), but there in A-Te...

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.

Thanks A-Te.
Nicola

The A-Te Hotel in Chumphon is very central, right next to markets, restaurants, shops and bars and within walking distance of he Train & Bus stations and the Ocean shopping Mall. The rooms are clean and spacious with lots of cupboard space, minibar, TV, A/C, hairdryer, desk and seating, free wifi and large windows. We had a standard room, so the view was out to the road side, but it was very quiet. The bed was probably the largest bed i have ever seen, our home one is 6' x 6.5', so thats saying something!! and it was comfortable and nice clean bedding. The bathroom was lovely, huge, walk-in shower with a stable supply of hot water, something not always found here in Thailand. The room and bathroom had good lighting and mirrors. Slippers, dressing gowns, toiletries, water and tea/coffee facilities were provided. The swimming pool area was really nice with loungers and umbrellas, a poolside restaurant and bar and a big enough pool to swim in, not just dip. We didn't have breakfast, so don't know what that was like. Check-in/out was quick and easy and the staff very helpful and friendly at all times. Highly recommend this hotel if its within your budget, its the best i've stayed in in Chumphon city.

Hotel was new and rooms were large. Bed was comfortable. Pool looked good in the photo but didn't go for a swim as it is close to the bar and restaurant so no privacy. The breakfast was really good and the staff friendly. A couple of stuff ups in that there were no towels in the room and when we changed rooms for the second night we were given the key to the wrong room and bags sent elsewhere. Staff at reception could have been friendlier. Close to restaurants and centre of town. Found the hotel on the tripadvisor site and booked for one night through AsiaTravel (shown on site) without checking other agencies as we were about to board a plane. Bad mistake as we ended up staying another night but booked through Agoda - was over 20% cheaper and we got a better room.

Clean , modern rooms , enjoyed the pool, downside - rooms smelt of old cigarette smoke although the hotel now is smoke free. Attentive staff but downside - little english spoken .
Breakfast - fair . Good for stopover on way to Bangkok.

Room Tip: We took the superior room with direct access to pool - very nice !

The hotel was exceedingly clean and bright. The room is of good size, the beds comfortable, the bathroom excellent, hairdryer and electric kettle provided.The breakfast was OK (for the Westerner; the Chinese guest found it not so good).
It is located just slightly too far for walking to/from the train station, but tuk-tuk is OK.
It was an excellent choice for overnight stay, while waiting for daytime train.
I was slightly disturbed by the repeated cycling on/off of a pump (likely due to the pool) , whose low-frequency noise was noticeable everywhere throughout the building (I investigated!). I could sleep all right, but I wouldn't want to live with this background noise for more than one overnight.

We travel between Phuket and Bangkok at least twice a year and have tried many places for a stopover. This hotel is undoubtedly the best. Modern, clean with a nice swimming pool. We didnt have breakfast so cannot comment on food quality.
