Hey mate, looks great, seems the have a fixed rate of 800/1000b low and hi season which is good, dependent on room size .

 

I couldn't find them on Agoda but the website is well laid out http://www.thehaven-hotel.com/index.php

 

They seem to want to get the golf crowd, would you say that for a normal monger its still all good?

 

Also do they have a discreet entrance back to the rooms?

Yes mate, the prices don't appear to have seasonal fluctuations - definitely good value.

 

While they cater for golfers, you would barely know it. There is an absence of golfing memorabilia of any kind. The only time I saw the golfing guys was between 5pm and 6pm where the guys would unwind with a beer and do a quick prize giving.

 

Sorry no discrete entrance, so no getting away from some 'walk of shame'...only kidding the staff are hugely respectful to the TGs who accompany the falang into the Haven.

Room looks nice but fuck me, that's tiny

 

Was there a curtain in the bathroom?

Thanks for the positive feedback...much appreciated.

 

No, AFAIK it's a different set-up and owner from The Golf Club in LK.

Great review and the place really looks a big step up from most others around there but still at a good price.

 

The old Haven restaurant was not enclosed and I wasn't keen on the tanks with live seafood on the left as you faced the Soi. One morning I was eating my breakfast next to a couple of dead fish floating in one.

 

The other issue previously in the restaurant was guys smoking cigars, just like Golf Club on LK.

 

Maybe cigars and golfers go together but it seems the place will not allow smoking inside.

 

Thanks for posting this :GoldenSmile1:

 

Edit: I am certain they slapped on VAT previously in the restaurant, in addition to the advertised prices, but this was a couple of years ago.

 

Did they stop doing that or do they still do ?

Yes mate, its a small room, they have ones much bigger, but that's all they had available. If I was staying for longer than a week then it would feel too small, but I personally found it fine. The bathroom and bedroom are separated by a sliding door, there is no curtain, but such is the design of the bathroom that I never got the bathroom soaking wet.

Appreciate the feedback mate. No smoking in the restaurant, but it is allowed on the external terrace.

thanks for the review, it is always nice to see more pictures and hear from people that have stayed at hotels.

 

But i have to say that with how small the room size looks, for even the bigger room, i think i would rather stay at natureview if i am to stay in that area.

Might just be personal preference, but but room sizes are important for me. :)

Yes mate I fully understand your point. We all have our own list of essential criteria. For some guys it's room size, for others it's a swimming pool or even a shower what isn't over the bath. The great thing about Patts is that we are spoiled for choice, there is just about something to suit everybody.

Really enjoyed staying at La Cerise. Didn't realise it was open again albeit under new owners. Pic of the brekky would be good if you get a chance.

Looks awesome. Will check them out next trip for a room and will try their brekky regardless. Usually do Continental Bakery or Rockhouse so can make this an alternate on some days.

I don't mind the golfing memorabilia, just wouldn't want to take up a room that a golfer might miss out. I often eat at the golf club, never golfed I'm my life, OK putt putt I have 555

Steve the owner I am sure wants the business of all visitors...give it a try, for the money (esp high season), it represents good value IMHO.

Up to 2 years ago I stayed virtually next door in the block lower down towards soi Buk,all these units/studios are almost the same as each other and similar prices,if like me staying for four or five months a year I negotiated a rate of 12,000 baht/month inc of water& electric,for 50 baht/day you could use the Vogue hotels gym and pool.Current rate a good friend of mine pays in Noble Place (next door) is 13,000 baht/month fully inclusive.

The Bluebird Cafe round the side of the Haven is much more.....yet the same room layout....go figure :Think1:

Maybe give Links hotel a go next time. Its under new management and they've spent a fair amount of cash improving it, plus golf available most days. On Soi Buakhao.

Thank you for the great review Mr LW! I used to stay at the previous location. I was a little hesitant about the new location since I was not sure if I could walk up all those stairs if the room that they allocated to me was on the top floor. Old age :-)

 

I will be in Pattaya in three weeks time and top of my list was to check the hotel.

 

Do you know how many rooms the hotel has got and how many rooms are in each floor?

Looks good but I've booked Honey Inn for my upcoming trip.

I'll definitely go and have a look though.

Mate, thanks for the positive feedback - appreciated. The stairs are quite steep. I reckon 12+ rooms - 4 per floor.

Wifi in the room is pretty good...only need to log in once. I get pissed off in some places which require conststant logging in.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
