Review - Canterbury Tales Cafe


Recommended Posts

Buttman Returns

I spent 4 weeks in this great guesthouse in June 2008.

 

Communication with Dave before and after booking was great, I got all the answers I was after very quickly and made the booking.

 

I was very pleased with the room I got. I must comment here that rooms do vary, so I can only refer to the one I've stayed in.

 

The room itself is not renovated but in a very satisfying condition. DVD, in-room safe that is located in a convenient place, A/C (and not one of the noisy ones!), nice selection of Pay TV channels, great comfy bed, coffee making kit, large fridge, hot water, everything I needed for a very comfortable 4 weeks stay.

 

WiFi as well. Didn't work some of the time but was mostly okay once the issues were resolved.

 

Great location IMO. 30 metres from Soi Bukhau, between Soi Dianna Inn and Soi LK Metro.

 

Noise level from the street very reasonable. Much better than Soi Bukhao!

 

Cafe closes sometime before midnight (around 11pm perhaps? not sure...), so there is no noise from there.

 

Once the cafe closes, entrance via back entrance only. I found it fantastic! Discrete, no Thai receptionists that gossip and tell your girl everything you've done when she wasn't there... ;-)

 

Cleaning every second day, but you can change towels every day.

 

Dave and his lovely wife are very warm and friendly people, always smiley and always willing to help and solve any problem you may have.

 

I can't comment much on the food, as I spent most of the time at Nutch's restaurant around the corner. I know Nutch from previous visits, I love her food and she and her family are such warm and friendly people that you always feel welcome.

 

Her restaurant is sort of 'street restaurant', very authentic food (SPICY!!!) and very cheap prices (dishes B30-50):

What else can I say? Oh, monthly deals! Prices of around Baht 7000 / month, simply ridiculous! And that includes WiFi and free DVDs. There is a huge 'library' as well...

 

For those of you who are looking for luxurious hotels, this is not the place for you. But if you don't want to spend too much on accommodation - this is great value!

 

I've found my little piece of heaven in Pattaya and definitely intend to book it for my next visit as well!

 

Photos below, hope you'll enjoy the models too... ;-)

 

Happy mongering,

 

BR

Yep, and she also has cheap beers to go with the spicy food... ;-) (B40-50 / Singha, I believe?)

we charge 6 baht per unit which also covers water but only charge for electric on the monthly deals.

Cheers Dave
