First time in Hua Hin. Veranda lodge made the holiday memorable. Friendly staff and good food. Located on the beach. With good amenities. We plan to come again in the future. Loved breakfasts in the restaurant overlooking the beach.
The rooms were huge and immaculately clean. There were clean towels(slightly threadbare) every day. I am afraid that the showers and water pressure were way under par. The bed was very comfortable, as were the pillows. The pool was better than the online photos suggest, and the location is second to none. On site restaurant is good quality, but check how spicy the dishes are if that is not your thing. All the food we had was very good quality and well cooked. It is a little more expensive than the market village (5 minutes walk), but the view is worth it. Breakfast is expensive and sparse if not included with your room. There are better options for breakfast within a short walk if it isn’t included. In summary: Friendly, good value and great position, but a little run down. Don’t let that put you off, it adds to the charm
I stayed here for 4 nights. Pros - great location on Hua Hin Beach & walking distance of the centre of Hua Hin, Clean room, lovely view of the beach from the Veranda restaurant. Plenty of complimentary water placed in your room each day. Cons - the public areas of the hotel are quite shabby & in need of a revamp. I paid extra for a better room “in villa” but it only had a tiny balcony, shared with the room next door & facing the wall of the hotel next door. Also there was a public Veranda with rocking chairs right outside our room. The paved public walkways are very uneven & dangerous for anyone with walking difficulties like myself, I tripped numerous times & fell over twice. The breakfast is appalling, the cooked breakfast food is not buffet style, you order off a very limited menu, the fried eggs, sausage, bacon, baked beans & hash brown are all stone cold when they arrive, my partner & I laughed each morning wondering how many baked beans we’d get, usually between 5 & 7 on the plate. The hash browns were a soggy inedible cold mush. The coffee is from a vending machine & lukewarm, I’ve never seen this before in a supposed 4 star hotel. Some of the staff were friendly, others were cold & indifferent. The service was very patchy, you were handed drinks & food menus & expected to order immediately before you’d had time to browse & decide, when you asked for 5 minutes to browse the menu, you were then ignored for 30 minutes. The sunbed service on the beach for drinks & food was practically non existent, hardly any staff asked you if you needed drinks or food, you had to go to order it yourself. The public areas weren’t cleaned regularly enough. This hotel is definitely not a 4 star hotel, at the moment in my opinion it’s a 2 or 3 star standard, which is a shame as it has the potential to be so much more & a true 4 star hotel. There are other hotels in Hua Hin that cost a similiar price, but where the standard is much, much higher. Would I stay here again ? Maybe...... if the hotel revamped itself, sorted out its very uneven & dangerous public walkways, sorted out its appalling breakfast & trained its staff up properly to providing a better standard of service.
would not recommend this hotel to anyone, for a supposed 4Star rating , it leaves a lot to be desired.No buffet breakfast as advertised, we stayed for 13 nights and not once was there any hot water in showers, the grounds are disgusting with exposed electrical conduit everywhere, had rain while we were there so was a little concerned as the conduit was cracked/broken and wires exposed to the weather. The only saving grace was the beach location and sometimes friendly staff.
We stayed in a bungalow with small front balcony. Pool great, breakfast included Ok, Staff fantastic. Great place to totally relax and rejuvenate. Taxi Avery where 100-200 THB . Reception desk will tel, you what cost should be as no meter taxis in small town.. great lobster in night market cheap compared to home so great treat. Horse riding on the beach and they pick up do do in bag so beaches are clean and water clear .
Veranda Lodge is really a good choice in Hua Hin beach. Despite the Veranda being a beachfront hotel, a small nice pool is also available. On the beach some beach lounger are available in an area reserved for guests. All the staff are very friendly. If I come back to Hua Hin, I will stay at the Veranda for sure.
Was very disappointed in the place. Reviews have been pretty good, which was why I choice this hotel. But reality is that this place requires a lot of care to be competitive. Pros: - Staff are mostly helpful, and will assist with booking of tuk tuks and haggling the price. - Rooms are clean, bright, but dated. Housekeeping does a decent job everyday. - Very close to Market village mall which is convenient for food and shopping - Restaurant is on the beach so you get a nice view for breakfast, happy hour or dinner. Food is good. Decor is very bright and modern. - You get to order freshly cooked dishes, rather than cold buffet breakfast stuff that's been left out. Cons: - Hotel is located down a dimly lit sandy small soi. About 10 min walk to the main road - Rooms are very dated. Still use a key. Deluxe rooms are in the main building. Garden bungalows are located on the ground nearer the beach but are damp looking and covered under trees and foliage, hence the "damp". None of them have direct views of the beach by the way. - Highest floor for main building is 4, and the only lift refused to go down to 1st flr for a couple of days while we were there - No chain locks for the rooms and since the doors are the 'click to lock' kind, makes you feel very insecure at night. - Sheets and towels are old, frayed and have damp stains. - Deluxe rooms get a balcony which overlooks trees. Not very appealing - Hotel grounds always look damp and moldy. It's run down or if you prefer a better word, very rustic. - There are 3 dark woody and damp cages near the reception, 2 with birds and 1 with squirrels. The animals look sad and there is an awful smell from the squirrel cage which you have to walk past everyday from the main building. - The reception area looks like it's in a dilapidated hut next to the deluxe room building. - the swimming pool is very small. slightly bigger than a ping pong table. Overall, the hotel needs to a big revamp and seems sad and abandoned on first impressions. There isnt any direct sunlight hitting the reception area all day, giving the place a very dank, dark, eerie vibe. While some may find this rustic, it just smells and looks like rotting wood to me. Also sad for the caged birds and squirrels living in the dark and damp. Overall, I won't stay here again, maybe just visit the restaurant. For the price, you could get better accommodation on Hua Hin.
I have visited Veranda Lodge during 18-19 June 2017 under "Thachanun". I wish to share my marvellous experience starting with an extremely friendly Receptionist. It's a shame I didn't ask her name but she is the woman with a short hair. Not only escorting me to the room, she also explained the facilities around the hotel including in the room. It seems to be a little thing she did but believe it or not, I only see this kind of service at Mandarin Oriental and not others! The room is super clean with a slightly lemongrass scent. My front Garden Bungalow was just a few steps away to the gate that leads to the beach. Super serene atmosphere. I also dined in the hotel as well. Staffs were nice, food was great especially the grilled prawns. However, one thing I think they should improve is that the menu price list is not accurate. For example, the grilled seafood (small portion) was stated THB 750 but actually it was THB 900. Total stay was splendid and I shall come back very soon!!! / Thachanun
This was our THIRD stay...and now solidly one of our favorite escapes! We came with friends this time and truly loved coming in May! We had the beach and the property practically all to ourselves (until the weekend). We love our garden bungalow and our friends stayed in the main hotel and thoroughly enjoyed their rooms. In fact, there was nothing more we could think to ask for. Without mentioning it...the owner discovered it was our friend's son's birthday and arranged for a cake during dinner there...so incredibly thoughtful. Sitting at the pool with all the flowers in bloom was such a heavenly scent...can't wait to return! And one of our favorite things is the staff is always smiling, quick and happy to help!!
It's a medium sized resort in Hua Hin off the east coast of southern Thailand. About 200kms from the capital Bangkok. 3 hours by car from sukhumvit road. A lovely by the sea vacation. The room 401 on top floor has sea view and private balcony and a living room with two bathrooms; one with a bathtub in the bedroom and one with shower in the living room. There're cottages by the sea in the garden as well. The restaurant serves international and Thai food with happy hour drinks and lovely beachfront. There's a shopping mall opposite the road. Great location!
