Thinking of Hua Hin Late Feb any suggestions

Hi any thoughts for a first timer to this area? Going to be in Thailand in a couple of weeks, plan to go to ChiangMai, but could use a few oceanside days as well. before or after Bangkok

Don't want to pay too much- certainly under £100/ night. Have seen mention of Khao Takiab is that interesting and relaxing?. We don't want to be in a busy resort like Pattaya have to say not somewhere we would want to spend more than a day. Would like to stay by the ocean if possible. Planning on 4-5 days.

Any thoughts for us we are late 50s , like food,like peace at night.

You should enjoy. Hua Hin is relaxed, long beach, local shops, night markets, over the water restaurants, lots of temples and historic/cultural sights.

February is still high season, Sofitel would be over your budget, as would Marriott, Baan Laksasubha etc

The Sofitel 'style' Wora Bura Hua Hin ( about 4 km from town center ) on the beach is modern yet 1920's stle design, gardens, pool overlooking the beach, within your budget inc tax, service and breakfast Superior Room THB 4,700 ( ukp 89 ) or Deluxe Room THB 5,200 ( ukp 98 ).

Daytime to/from town would costs by Songthaew/baht bus 10 Baht each ( about 20 uk cents ) , the resort does offer shuttle to/from town, no idea if free or not. After dark taxi about ukp 3-3.80, though you have some very nice beach restaurants close by.

Now if you would prefer to be in town and can handle not on the beach, then the Wannara might suit, but not on the beach.

I think overall the Wora Bura would be nice and in particular on that special offer is good for a 4 star place that is right at the beach.

At night great views and you can see the illuminated Golden Buddha at Khao Takiab.

You can walk into the village for convenice stor, local eateries, local life, walk along the beach ( low tide ) , hop into town.

This is their website but if rates are not offering that special I can tell you where to get that special deal

Just south along the beach is Khao Takiab - nice night photo from past Supatra restaurant

We know both Hua Hin and Pattaya well and from what you have said Hua hin would suit you, there are coastal national park plus inland park, as said the temples, night markets etc.

From Chaing Mai fly to bangkok and then taxi/car service to and from Hua Hin. There 'is' a bus service from Chiang Mai to Hua Hin but takes 14 hrs and would only suggest to those on a 'very tight' budget .
