“Authentic thai look but no substance to it”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

We stayed over new year. The hotel took some finding on the north side of the lake in the middle of nowhere about 2 km from Chaweeng Beach. No one had heard of it. The hotel and room looked fine. The setting nice and leafy with apple trees all around. We had to negotiate a steep hill from reception to room so the disabled or aged will struggle here.

The room was spacious however the faults were numerous. Firstly the air con just blew out warm air whether you set at 15c 25c or 30c. When will these Thai's release europeans want cold crisp air con. Because of the leafy setting there's mozys all over.

Secondly even though the location was quiet there was a big nightclub at the top of the hill where booming music until 5am kept me awake. Sleeping not easy here! Also on an evening as you walked back up the hill to your room the hotels many labrador & other dogs charged at you barking. Very intimidiating if you dont like dogs.

Finally and most important. Because we go to Samui late december we know there can be heavy rain. So we booked this hotel because they advertise free Wifi and very good tv channels including sport. Well it rained very hard the last 2 days and so the wifi signal which had previously not been good went down. Also the "very good!" tv channels for sport including a ladies golf channel much alpine skiing and some insignificant bundes league soccer. When will these thai's realise good sport means english soccer USA sports. I feel cheated they sold me this room on the understanding we would have good wifi and good tv channels with good live sport.

Also when we pointed out the short comings in the evening a couple of very likeable smiling Burmese men just shrugged their shoulders and said "no speak english good" My thai girl friend said they also did not speak thai. Typical reaction if there are problems! There was a english speaking lady who worked during the day. I asked for a motor bike to rent giving her two days notice. When I went down at 9.30am to book the bike she said they no longer had the bike. This meant one hour trailing in to the village to hire another one (for 50B less) By this time it had started raining & did not stop all day.

I have stayed in another lame duck of an authentic thai hotel in Pattaya and will steer well clear in future as they do not seem to have a clue how to cater for european and american customers
