The hotel is located on the Bang Niang village about 5 km from Khao Lak. The advantage of being in Bang Niang is it is quieter than the Khao Lak, but not isolated. There are a lot of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, convenient stores, shows, pharmacies, and there is also a Bang Niang Market which is a big evening market...

We only stayed for a short period of time at the start of our honeymoon but wished we could of stayed longer. The hotel was clean and neat and the rooms were nicely decorated and furnished.

We liked everything: the location, the big room, the friendly staff, the big enough pool, the lying beds in the shadow, but most of all the very strong shower. Never had such a good one before in a middle range accommodation. We had no breakfast.

I was there to attend a wedding ceremony on the beach at one of the luxury hotels and needed a place to spend two nights. The Motive Cottage Resort is a most convenient place to sleep at, with good beds and an imaginative breakfast selection for the kind of standard it represents. Rooms are clean and the restaurant next door...

Wow, what a great little boutique hotel with about 30 rooms. Our room was quite large with a beautiful day sitting area in the traditional Asian style. It was a little rough around the edges such as the concrete bathroom but it was individual and practical. The air-conditioning worked really well as did the internet connections / tv and the...

We stayed at this centrally located hotel, 2 mins walk from the local market which runs on Mon, Wed, Sat. The beach is approx 10/15 mins walk.

Rooms are really nice, comfortable and clean which makes you feel like at home. The staff was very friendly, and the owner always did his best to help. Break first was also good. The only draw back is noise insulation, you can hear people in surroundng rooms.

This hotel has a very small facade facing the main road, which made me expect a dull guesthouse based on a run-of-the-mill shophouse. But once I made it past the reception, I was surprised to find a pool and nice stylish architecture. The room was well equipped and I felt I got good value for money.
