This is my second stay at Puangpen Villa Hotel. The location is perfect for a short stroll down to the beach and to the many bars and restaurants. The hotel staff are perfectly cordial and although somewhat distant. Never in you face!
The grounds are neat and the pool is very clean. The pool furniture has seen better days and some loungers are needing some TLC.
Our room was on the second floor with a small balcony. The room was clean and bed linen and towels were changed every morning. The shower tended to be a little haphazard and not always hot. They do provide a small slither of soap and a few other bits and bobs but nothing to write home about. Ladies, they do not provide a hairdryer! The room itself is what you pay for really. At AUS$40 a night, what more could you expect? To be critical, it could do with a good paint, and stain. The room had a safe, fridge, air con and TV with many channels. Beds are typically Thai, relatively hard, but our double/queen bed seemed huge.
The hotel at this time of year was quiet and not being full, the pool always had sun loungers free. Weather was quite hot and sticky as usual with occassional bouts of rain.
