Driving Thailand from high north to deep south, never even attempting to think where we might spend the night, using Hotels.com app to locate nearby hotels. This one looked good and the price was great. I didn't expect a 4 Seasons, and hoped not to get a backpacker hotel, it was clear from walking thru the door that the owners cared about the style and orderliness of their lobby. The woman behind the desk, I assume an owner, was really helpful and kind. Walking up some great stairs, at the first level I was blown away by the flooring, which looks like the original wood of this old, but completely refurbished, hotel. The wood had been sanded and polyurethaned perfectly, and not a piece of dust on it. I knew then that the room would be modern, which it was. Same gorgeous floor in the room, the bathroom all new tile/sink/toilet/water heater. A/C working with a simple remote that worked (!) and a new TV. The mattress was really good, huge towels for a blanket (does anyone like those plastic blankets even good hotels are using now?) I did have a room with the elevated ramp to a major highway just 20 meters away, but my sleeping brain just hears traffic as waves breaking on the shore of a beautiful beach, so all was well with me. I see in another review that they have inside rooms, which might be better for those needing more quiet. I really liked this hotel. INCREDIBLE attention to detail in the rebuild and owners are fantastic.
