    Cheers for the comments/insights folks. I'm erring towards the Siam Bayshore with a standard room. Its such a fleeting visit, flying solo with M'Sahib staying home in Phuket, a decent room with facilities is all I need, and the time constraints mean it highly unlikely I'll have the time or inclination to use the pool. Google also tells me that it's 7 minutes by taxi to the Lion Pub, so that will work.

    The afternoon will undoubtably be on the piss at the Lion, with the evening dependent on what state I'm in when the sun goes down though odds are that it will just be a bimble not too far from the hotel for food and more wets.

    Sounds to me like you will be in need of a restorative full English the morning after. Enjoy. ��

    Highly likely Chas. The occasion is a RBL organised 50th anniversary of Operation Banner.

    Wise choice I think PAG all things considered. Good value there and its not too bad by the pool which is a nice place to relax whilst you wait to check in at 2pm unless you sort that out before.

    What time are you meeting your friends? If early and you're on your own you are probably better off getting a cheaper hotel within staggering distance to where you are drinking especially as most of the big hotels wont let you check in until 2pm
    I was pretty chuffed with the deal i got at the the cozy beach . Think it was about 2200 baht for a family room. Nice view over the pool n beach. Didnt see fuck all all of pattaya this time as i was whisked away to the darkside in an uber. Saw even less coming home.

    Those standard rooms are like a maze to find at night if you're a bit pissed .
    Recommend you stay in the main building for a few bucks more, you wont regret it.
    And don't miss breakfast.

    Got an Executive Deluxe room in the main building for a discounted rate of 3.5K inclusive of all taxes, confirmed by email from the reservations supervisor, along with the promise of an early check in circa midday.

    Booked a hire car from U-Tapao, which I'll only be using to get me from the airport to the hotel, and return the following morning (after breakfast.....). Flights were cheap, Air Asia Phuket to U-Tapao just over 1K, with return by Bangkok Airways only a little more. Different airlines because of timings.

    Last time we was there we couldn't even get near the breakfast buffet counter what with the hoards of Chinese using their sharp elbows. We skipped the buffet the next two mornings.

    I've never bothered paying for breakfast buffets at Pattaya hotels.
    Not when you can get a full English down the road for 99 baht

    I agree re buffets, not a fan myself either. Anywhere you would recommend in the vicinity of Siam Bayshore, or en route back to U-Tapao?

    The Pig and Whistle did a nice fry up if you can handle one after a skinful:. They have kippers too.
    La Baguette, is a nice French cafe restaurant for a nice eggs benedict or Croque Monsieur

    Both are not walkable but in the direction of the airport from your hotel.

    Reox does the 99 baht fry up but you'll be sitting around a lot of Chang vest wearing sexpests smoking away

    Headworx will be your man for eaterie suggestions in Pattaya.
