Best midrange rooms in town
679 Moo 3, off Route 1080 or 101, depending on which map you look at T: 054) 791 111, (086) 810 1271
Not so easy to find but, with a central location and probably the best flashpacker option in town, Green Hill Resort is worth seeking out.
It lies off the northern side of Route 101 (or Route 1080 according to some maps), as it heads west from the T-junction. Opposite the junction you’ll see one of the town’s several 7-elevens and the lane down the left of the store as you look at it leads a short distance to Green Hills. There is a sign at the top of the lane and the hotel is a large, relatively well-organised affair. Rooms are located in three white-painted three-storey blocks around a gravel carpark shaded by mature trees. It looks a bit newer than similarly priced Chomphu Phuka and indeed interiors are spic and span – also white with wide windows and balconies, so very bright and airy. There’s minimal decoration, adding to the uncluttered feel, but all rooms come with TV, fridge, air-con, WiFi, comfy bed and ensuite hot showers. Standard rooms are okay but superiors more spacious. With three blocks they have quite a number of rooms and we suspect a few problems filling them up, so when we stopped in the staff were discounting with every minute we lingered. A simple breakfast is included and the hotel is a short walk from say Chomphu Phuka for dinner, convenience stores and banks up on the highway, or the old town further down the lane. Recommended.
