      Cool place”
      Operated by a sweet lady who likes Bob Marley and UB40, this guesthouse is a great spot to chill for a few nights as I did. A 5 min walk to Tung Wua Laen beach and the strip of restaurants and shops. Room was great. Comfortable bed with great air-con, balcony and nice shower. Perfect spot.

      Above average”
      Basic accommodation, very hard bed. The sink was completely out of order in our room and it was not repaired during our stay, 3 days. We were offered another room however, but that was much smaller and so was the balcony. In the evening we played a game at the table in the big living room, the lady was rather stingy however, so each time we had difficulties in getting sufficient light. Otherwise she was helpful.

      We stayed at the Albatross for one night, it is perfectly adequate for a short stay. The check in process was a bit odd as the hotel had been left in charge of the elderly cleaner who had to show us to our room and stand on a table to get the fan working. She was incredibly sweet but we felt a bit sorry for her running up and down all the stairs! Our room was spotlessly clean, although unfortunately no hot water or drinking water provided and only a towel provided as a bed sheet. WiFi signal very weak. We loved the area, it’s a good location for diving, the beautiful beach and local night market. Overall a pleasant stay.

      The Albatross GH is a few hundred meters off the beach but this shouldn ´t stop you from staying there. The fan rooms are large , have a balcony and are immaculately clean.

      Cheap friendly place to stay”
      We took the cheapest fan only room. The room was big, clean, comfortable bed, with attached bathroom. Sparsely furnished with a stool, table and desk light. No fridge, no kettle, only 1 power outlet, no TV. Our room faced the sun and it was hot. It doesn't help that my partner hates drafts so insisted on doors and windows staying closed. I managed to get the windows open as they had insect screens. Downstairs some open areas that were nice to sit in, but they needed fans. Few minutes walk to the beach, say 5 minutes. At the beach plenty of restaurants and bars, although most were closed as we were off season. Beach looks lovely. However there were sandflies in the evening making it unpleasant to linger on the sand. I wanted to swim but had some stings on my legs, nothing visible , so I gave up that idea. June 2017, at other times of the year this could be very pleasant.

      For the price it is good but the main issue is that you do need private transport to get there otherwise it is around a 20 minute walk from the beach and main places. The room was clean and the staff friendly and they booked us a taxi.

      Location, Price, Staff
      Here's the deal, so please pay attention: if you want a quiet place to stay within a 5 minute easy walk to the beach and restaurants, with helpful staff, clean, bright, spacious room, aircon, balcony, motorbike or pedal bike rental, away from the more crowded, noisy beachfront locations, etc. etc., and a very reasonable/low cost (about 550 baht a day, or monthly for less), stay here. Period. If you want to be right on the beach, or near a bar, or in a more crowded location, don't. Simple.

      Clean, quiet, great service.
      This place is very clean and quiet. Just what we always look for in a hotel. The ladies working were absolutely wonderful. Even giving us free water without us asking. Major plus in SE Asia. Free bikes to borrow, which was nice when we needed to find an ATM. Otherwise, you can walk less than 5 min to food and the amazing beach. Very good value for the money.

      Inexpensive, spotlessly clean throughout
      Our good sized double room was simply but adequately furnished, the bed was comfortable and the air conditioning unit was efficient and not noisy. Cable TV had many stations but no useful English language channels. The room was spotlessly clean as were the common areas of the hotel. No food service (but many restaurants within walking distance) but complimentary tea and coffee is offered and beer and soft drinks can be bought. If you are looking for a full service hotel this is not for you but a comfortable and clean room and a very low room rate it would be difficult to find better value for money.

      Good location for a quiet beach holiday”
      Clean, fast wifi, close to the beach
      We booked for one night and extended our stay for 2 weeks - fan room. We really enjoyed being there because it was quiet (June is the low season and it is not very hot). The rooms are very clean, A/C and fan work well. Shower has cold/hot water. Not many English channels on the TV, wifi is very fast. If it rains a lot there will be frequent power cuts. Bicycle/scooter can be rented, the beach is just 500m away. No breakfast included - just a 10 THB coffee at the lobby but possibility to store food in the refrigerator downstairs. They also sell water and snacks downstairs. There is no entertainment/nightlife in June...everything shuts down at 10pm. The manager Khun Phorn is very helpful and sweet. She took me to the nearest stores to buy food and try some Thai delicacies. Public transport "yellow bus" works from 5am to 5pm every day and costs 30 thb /person to Chumphon town (16km away). Tips: - Go fishing from the rocks on the North side of the beach (lots of red snappers and groupers) - Bring with you sand fly repellent (the beach is full of them!!!) and contact lenses liquid/saline solution. - On Sundays, try the Market Supree (fishing village) - sea food dishes and fruit are fresh and delicious!
