This is probably my favourite hotel / guest house that I've ever stayed at in Thailand. It really is great value for money compared to other places I stayed in Hua Hin (before we checked in here I had previously paid more money to stay in a semi-clean room with paper thin walls which was about 1/4 the size across the road to a pub that blared music until well past 3am).
The owners Andy and Doung are just fantastic and really made our stay at Donkeys all the more enjoyable. They are both very knowledgeable about the city and have fantastic senses of humour. Their 2 kids (8 and 4) were playing with the other kids staying there and the families with children all seemed to be enjoying their stays too.
My room was extremely clean (and tidied daily), aircon and hot water worked great, fantastic pool and gymnasium and a short walk to the beach or a short taxi / scooter ride to the center of town and night market.
The other guests all seemed to be having a great time as well - in the 3 nights we were there we got to know most of them quite well - the bar there is a very sociable place.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone and will be certain to stay there again.
