Nice place to stay”
Pool, Bar, and staff
It was a very pleasant stay, the people were nice, the staff were nice and it was quiet. I really appreciate the place. If they read my review I just found a spoon in my bag that was yours! Sorry for the inconvenient.

A english mans nightmare”
The smell, bed bugs, human hair. The worst I have ever experienced in my life. Dirty room, bed bugs in bed. Human hair blocking the shower drains. Human hair in the sink. The pool was dirty & had a scorpion in the pool, all so had pool cleaning equipment in the pool. There was out of date drink in the fridge. Dust & human hair all over the place, the room hadn't been cleaned in a long time. The thai lady owner was not expecting me even tho I booked it a week before. She had to go & check the room was made. I even opened the fridge in front of her & there was spilt beer stains all over it, she dident even attempt to clean it. It was so dirty. I arrived about 4pm & went out to eat & got back late so could not complain. Slept in the chair & went out about 4am. I left first thing & told the thai owner about bed bugs, she just hutted something under her breath & walked away. I could not tell her about the state of the room. I chose this retreat because of the name & pictures . This has been a very nice hotel but just gone down hill. There was no chance of getting a refund, but the state of the hotel she needed the money more than me. Lucky this did not spoil my holiday. I ended up staying in a great hotel in the town centre,Please do not go to this english mans nightmare.

Great Value! Most coomfortable”
Staff has English Skills, very comfortable bed, eat on the premisis
Of my 2+ weeks this was the most comfortable bed I slept in. While firm, it had sort of a pillow top. I liked it much better than the typical Thai rock hard beds. They obviously accommodate English speaking guests with English information in the rooms, English speaking staff, and western/Thai food menu. This is not a 5 star facility so don't expect that. It was comfortable and I would certainly stay there longer, or when I return. It was the best value for money of everyplace I've stayed in my 2+ weeks in Thailand.

Breakfast, location for golf course, quiet at night
Stayed and reviewed before. Breakfast great. Location great for playing local golf course otherwise well out of town 5 kilos or so. Easy to get into town, samlaw 150 baht available just down the road. Taxi back 150B. Room fine, good value and particularly with the facilities, pool and gym. TV channels ok. If I play golf at NongSamRong will stay here as 1 minute away.

Happy to go again”
Breakfast, swimming pool, close to golf course
Everything was good except for one thing. First of all I am surprised they do not say there is a 9 hole golf course about one minutes drive from the hotel. Shorter course but not easy and very cheap. I was allowed to check-in early and easily booked a late check out for 100 baht. The breakfast was good. I did eat another two meals there and they were ok but no more. The room was well presented and situated next to the pool. There were two samlaws just by the entrance to the army base available for hire and during my time there always one so if you didn't want to drive the 5 kilos into Udon it was easy to get the 150 baht transport. Staff were friendly and helpful and spoke some English. I stayed to play golf so the location was fine for me but this is not a town centre hotel and is situated on a quiet road with just one other place about 100m down the road where you could eat or have a drink during the day. My only complaint is the bar opening times. I went into Udon in the afternoon for shopping and came back about 8pm. The bar closes at 9pm I was told every day. I just wish they had told me before I went out. Perhaps they could put a sign up. I will stay there again when next I play golf at NongSamRong.

Good facilities, good restaurant, home cooking. English owner friendly and easy going. Also provides transport to airport and bus station. Can rent bike.
Somewhat distant from center of town. But with motorbike easy reachable. Large pool to cool off in. Kitchen provides good English and Thai dishes. Good Wifi reception. Rooms simple but equipped with fridge and a.c. Good value for money when I visited in October.

rooms ok for the price.”
reasonably priced resturant.
it is nowhere near the town centre,if you do not have your own transport it is a good 15/20 minute tuk tuk ride. i would not stay here again for that reason. 1000baht deposit required here! apparantly to indemnify the mini bar against mis-appropriation(reception is not 24hrs..)

A wonderful retreat to do nothing...”
You can't beat the price.
a wonderful reatreat to get away from everything and relax. the hotel is quite far from the city, and getting back and forth is expensive. a place to swim, and read. this is out in the country. they do serve good meals at a good price. local food can be purchased within walking distance. they don't have fresh coffee so you will need to walk a few blocks to the coffee shop on the main road. the shower has warm water instead of hot, and it's difficult to shave without proper lighting. lots of cobwebs in the corners and up the walls.

The hotel is 15 minutes ride from the city, which makes the whole experience more expensive. The hotel charged us a 1000 BTH diposit, and the rooms weren't clean enough.

Personal,Essen,Sauberkeit
Ein nettes kleines Hotel mit sehr zuvorkommenden Personal. Die Einrichtung ist zwar schon älter aber für diesen Preis ok. Personal spricht ausgezeichnet English. Allerdings liegt das Hotel etwas außerhalb vom Stadtzentrum daher muss man immer mit dem Taxi fahren. Einfache Fahrt in das Zentrum 150 Baht.

ผ้าเช็ดตัวมีกลิ่นอับ และห้องมีขนาดเล็กมากและไม่ค่อยสะอาดเท่าไหร่ ทำเลดูอึดอัดไม่มีต้นไม้สักต้น และไม่สามารถนำอาหารเข้ามารับประทานในโรงแรม ต้องซื้อกินในโรงแรมเท่านั้น..สรุปแล้วไม่มีอะไรน่าประทับใจสักอย่าง
