Let's face it most people who go to Chumphon are on their way somewhere else. We were driving from Bangkok to Krabi and so needed somewhere to stay between Hua Hin and Ao Nang. If you are doing the same I would urge you to look elsewhere.
Chumphon itself is nice enough and the beach could be great however despite being told the hotel has modernised it clearly has not. The room had a painted yellow concrete floor and the bed and side table had been made from the same concrete. This had the affect of making the bed rock hard and as a consequence I spent one of the most uncomfortable nights of my life.
The paths around the hotel were covered in sand and had. It been swept and the bungalows themselves were desperately in need of a coat of paint. I didn't use the vast pool but the children's pool looked very dirty.
Breakfast was no much better - you have to tick what egg you want and whether you want sausage or bacon. Those are the only choices.
To top it all the staff were not helpful and even refused to take a 1000 baht note for a 540 baht bill claiming it was too large!
If you are doing what we were and just passing through then I would just keep on going until they decide to hire a decent manager and clean the place up.
A wish comes true for all who dream of sitting back and relaxing in the arms of nature. The Cabana overlooks mountains and …More
Had a very nice one day stay at this hotel. the hotel staff were very pleasant and the restaurant prices and food quality were excellent. Pleasant surroundings on a golf course and beach. Great choice in Chumphon!
