This hotel is stunning. The gardens are beautiful and relaxing. Although it is a little away from the centre of town, there's a free shuttle three times a day and you just need to get a taxi back (haggle down to 200 baht - it's about £4).
The restaurant within the hotel is fantastic, we had either lunch or dinner here every day and the other meal was had in town depending what we were doing that day. Breakfast was good although the menu can be quite funny. There are Asian options and European options daily, plus every day there is a cooked breakfast (usually a frankfurter, some kind of egg and some kind of vegetable - not necessarily as you'd expect) and French toast, pancakes (may I highly recommend these), homemade croissants (I had one every day - delicious), cereals, fruit, meats, cheeses, breads (optionally toasted) and jams.
The pool is lovely and the beach is nice enough, although we are not really beach people.
A very relaxing 4 night stay at the very nice Hotel de la Paix. The rooms are very big and boast an amazing shower that comes from the ceiling in the middle of the bathroom! The hotel staff excelled in every way... with superb customer service. Breakfasts were delicious and varied day by day, the BBQ buffet was fantastic value and the food was very tasty. I would recommend this hotel for couples wanting an 'away from it all' break. I would not recommend it to those wanting a more lively holiday due to the location of the hotel. On the downside it took 30 minutes by shuttle bus to get into Hua Hin - which isn't the prettiest place I have ever been in Thailand. We also could not swim in the sea due to the jelly fish. That said, we were happy to laze on our sunbeds and use the hotel pools :)
