We stayed there in transit between Koh Samui and Surah Thani Airport the next day. It was a great price for spending the night; no unnecessary luxuries; just the affordable basics.

GOOD OLD-FASHIONED SERVICE”
Wangtai is an older style hotel, but everything is well maintained; the rooms are quite spacious, very comfy bed, powerful shower with plenty of hot water and efficient, quiet air conditioning, nicely positioned so it doesn't blow on your face all night long. Service in the restaurant and coffee shop was great, and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

Not Perfect, but As Good As It Gets in Surat Thani”
I don't think you'll find anything central to downtown any better than this hotel. Yes, it's aging, and it could use some renovation, but the staff is sweet, the food is pretty good, the pool is clean (with a real deep end), the gym is adequate, and the location is ideal. I enjoyed my stay there — even the kinda creepy glass elevator with splendid views and endless Carpenter's songs. I'll stay here if I ever return to Surat Thani.

A perfect value-for-money deal!”
Location, own ample parking and good local in-house restaurant
Although the hotel must be 30 years old or more, all the necessary things function. The room had been renovated and featured enough space, new mattress and large windows. The in-house restaurant featured the usual run-of-the-gun breakfast buffet with all the food gotten fried/cooked hours before guests would have breakfast. We asked for freshly cooked items (fried eggs, ham etc.) which were provided for with pleasure. They featured a coffee machine with fresh coffee; the grinding disks should be changed as the coffee was bitter but fresh. All in all recommended and - for us - a good pitstop on our car trip between Samui and Pattaya.

OK if you need to stay in this town for one night”
I booked a superior room and what I got may have been modern 15 years ago. It wasn't really clean, all the furniture was extremely scratched, there was no chair to sit at the table. At the beginning I only got access to the internet with 2 hours of expiration time. Only when I complained did I receive a VIP Premium day ticket for Internet access. That cannot really be acceptable in 2018. I wouldn't spend another night there.

An Overnight Stay At Suratthani By The Riverside”
We arrived at Wangtai hotel at 6 pm from Koh Samui by a tutut transfer. We walked for about 2 km by the riverside walk and had a simple street dinner. A little far to walk though it was quite ok in the evening. The sunset river view was good. I would rather stay closer to downtown next time I visit Suratthani.

Dirty room, insects everywhere”
Great service, decent breakfast
the hotel room was dirty, I found a cockroach in my bedroom, spider in my bathroom, and tiny insects crawling into my luggage. It was disgusting, hair was in the bathroom. I got a room on the higher floor (6th floor) and the Wi-Fi was not available on that floor. I asked the hotel staff and they said because the router was located on the first floor so Wi-Fi only available a few floors up. The hotel was expensive and not worth the money. I spent my second night at a much cheaper, cleaner hotel

breakfast buffet, swimmingpool, stuff performance
Convinient on the entrance of Surat Thani close to a river lies the Wang Thai hotel. It has many conviniencys like a large swimmingpool , a travell agency and a coffee ship. The rooms are of average standard an are equipped with flatscreen TV. The breakfast buffet is very good. All in all a quite good value for the price.

Conference ”
Location. Massage. Friendly Staff.
The overall stay was okay. Rooms are old. (Ants everywhere I did call the front desk and they sent someone with a spray). The breakfast was overrun by people, the staff and chefs were not prepared for cooking or seating a very large group. Many guests where standing, while eating and drinking... what they could find.

Well refurbished”
Friendly staff, big room and quiet
I like the way they keep the "oldness" of the hotel but they changed the gadgets like televisions to new ones. This made me feel comfortable for staying in a hotel with "antique" feel yet able to enjoy the new equipments unlike other hotels where the televisions or lightings are also old. However, time to change the fridge as i was unable to use the freezer due to extreme frosting. Dangerous to use too!

There were 2 wedding dinners during our 3 nights stay at the hotel. Lobby can become quite crowded during dinner time. Staff were helpful too. Its very convenient to catch a tuk-tuk from the hotel to go into the city.

The room was large but tired and dated”
The food was good, the restaurant staff were friendly and the pool was very good
Wangtai Hotel is geared towards conferences and weddings. We stayed for 3 nights and there were 3 weddings and a conference. The rooms are very tired and old fashioned but good value for the money we paid. The staff didn't speak English so we're no help at all answering questions. The pool was great and we had it to ourselves. Surat Thani is not a tourist town at all, in fact we only saw 2 or 3 other tourists in 3 days. There are no bars or restaurants to speak of so we ate in the hotel which was ok. The Sunday market was fun to see but otherwise there's not a lot to do.

hotel is well positioned, parcicularly as the motorbike festival venue was right next door in the open field. otherwise hotel is quite tired, furniture is old. it does have gym, while not well appointed has the basics to workout. air cond doesn't work though, so you have a sauna at the same time as working out. there is a small pool, which is refreshing.
