This small budget hotel is conveniently located opposite to Bang Niang Market which offers many eating and drinking options. The beach is also about a 15 minute walk which is not too bad. The room itself was nice and clean with all the amenities you would expect such as cable TV, A/C, fridge, hairdryer, hot water etc. There is also... More

We stayed in this hotel, which is situated in a great location, 10 mins walk to the beach, nice restaurants and the memorial with museums. We hired a moped from the lady next door which was approx £7 for the day, we drove to the Navel Base to the turtle sanctuary, what a great day but remember to bring your... More

you get what you pay. that means don't expect too much as this is just an accomodation without any of a higher standard like in the big resorts. but the rooms are kept clean and the aircondition is working. :-) also free wifi which connects great, although loads not very fast. video streaming could be a problem if you need...

We spent a week here with a group of friends. The rooms are fantastic , staff lovely. Location is noisy but the whole area is on a busy road and you can't escape it - opt for a room towards the rear on first floor. Great value and a strong option we would stay again. Restaurant at the front of... More

Close to the Khao Lak action at Bang Niang, Motive Cottage is on the "highway" through town, across the road from the "Main Street" where many shops and restaurants are to be found. So while there is highway noise (nicely masked by the pool's waterfall), you don't get the noise of the massed crowds that likely run from dusk to... More

Beautiful hotel close to everything. Walking distance to the best massage we had in Thailand this trip!!!! Well clean and serviced apartment, nice pool. The breakfast is not worth $200 bath but there are great cafes 5minutes walking from the property. Worth your trip!!!

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... More

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... More
