Stay at Grand Fortune Hotel at Nakhon Si Thammarat
Reviewed 26 March, 2021
When we landed at the airport hotel pick-up was waiting to receive us. The drive to the hotel was around 30 minutes. The driver was pleasant and spoke good English.
The building from distance looks impressive and modern. Its right next to Tesco Lotus that has restaurants, food court and Swensens too. Lobby was massive and very impressive. We arrived around 10.30 am, since the room wasn’t ready Reception staff suggested that we should do some sightseeing and guided us with a map and must see places. We were offered a welcome drink and all the check-in formalities were completed.
When we returned around 4 pm, our room was ready. They had allocated us a corner room on the 14th floor which had a fabulous view. The room was nice, clean, functional with all the amenities that one would expect. We had a fruit platter with a traditional welcome letter from GM. The bathroom was clean and functional with all the amenities.
Breakfast was the best that we ever had at any of the regional hotels in Thailand, the spread was wide, traditional local fare, continental with a choice traditional tea and coffee too. There was variation in the choice on the second day. The staff here was also very courteous, helpful and had working knowledge of English.
On the second day we decided to enjoy cocktails at the lobby bar. The best was the musician who was not only versatile on various instruments such as Piano, Violin, key board but also had a lovely voice. He played songs of our choice. When we learnt that he was 77, that was a wow factor.
Overall a fantastic experience.
A stopover we recommend

We are heading south first time for already 8 years in Thailand.
Grand Fortune hotel is located in the southern part of the city, in a suburban area. 20 minutes from the railway station as we reached this town by train. However, the National Museum and the Wat Mahathat are still within walking distance.
Hotel facilities are of a good level, particularly the Gym and the swimming pool and restaurant area.
Room standard is good but under equipped with a plugging system, however. No system anywhere to clean shoes.
The food menu offer is large, including breakfast. Overall, there is a potential to upgrade food quality.
All services worked well: room service, reception.

I agree with most of the recent reviews. This is definitely now the place to stay in Nakhon Si Thammarat. We had a lovely good-sized room, everything was very clean with good facilities for 1,400 Baht/night. There was ample parking and the breakfast was also good with a large selection. I highly recommend this hotel.
Grand hotel but could do better

Stayed there 2 nights with my better half.
We got room on the 15th floor with beautiful wiew over Nakhon Si Thammarat.
The room was rather small but everything inside was of high standard, great bed, enough pillows and good WiFi.
Only thing I can complain about is that there were no electric outlets on either side of the bed so phones and tablets had to be charged on the table on the other side of the room.
Breakfast was rather normal buffet, very good but no wow factor.
The only bad thing I can say about our stay was the Mosquito problem.
The hallway on the 15th floor was full of them and every time we opened the door some would slip in to the room.
Also a big problem at the swimming pool.
We went for a short dip around 7PM and got over 15 bites in the short time it took us to dry ourself after we got out of the pool.
In my travels around Thailand for the past 26 years I have never seen so much Mosquito problem in any hotel I have stayed at.
Management should relly look into this.
