Nora itself was not bad, stayed there for just one night, unplanned after missing our flight. Despite being upset about missing that flight, and not being in Phi Phi, our perception of the hotel was clear.
New, well presented, clean, comfortable rooms. A decent looking restaurant/bar. The pool lacks direct sunshine, so if you're a in search of sunshine swedish tanning chair diva, forget it. Inner city/concrete jungle modern motel feel to me.
The staff appeared friendly initially but soon were noticeably busting everyone's nuts. Constant complaints and arguments over the reception area with discontented guests while on the internet on the only desktop available (free though). Almost refused to open our door, when we accidentally locked the card inside...
With the prejudice assumption that we were bringing hookers to our room later that night, we were informed a charge of 1000thb would apply. I almost choked. Not open for jokes, not even a smile, when i joked: "what if i get lucky and bring 2 girls, 2000 THB?", the staff just grinned.
They did however, wake up called just as we were packed walking out the door, pack our requested take away breakfast, which when we confirmed the night before, we noticed they had left it unrefrigerated at reception overnight...The whole fruits saved the day though.
Would encourage to look around for similar pricing. One of the newest in chaweng. Others outside chaweng with shuttle bus service might be a better option if you're not fussed with "club life" of samui. Even then, late night taxis are still cheap...
