    Nice thread. When I did a cross-country motorcycle ride a few years ago, I was able to find similar places in most places I stopped. Unfortunately I didn't document my discoveries, so it's great that you are sharing this with everyone.

    IME, the service in these small, off the tourism grid family-run hotels is usually very warm and accommodating. Thai hospitality at it's best.

    Thanks for the great review. We have friends in Ubon and they've invited us to stay at their house, but that place looks great. Great prices too. So now we have two places to go in Ubon - Pepper's and Phaedeng Mansion.

    Not sure yet, but in about a year. We'll be taking trips to other places in the next 6 months first. In the meantime, I'll e-mail our friend who lives there and ask him if he's been to Pepper's yet. I'll let you know.

    Peppers

    MeMock, Been to Peppers only once for a nice cup of tea and some tasty cake. Like the place, the staff there are very friendly, even helping me with my thai. Haven't eaten there, yet, but it's on my "to do" list.

    ^^ Well when you do get here Nat it would be great to meet with you to be sure!

    ^ Hi Jimbone, glad to hear that you managed to drop in to Peppers for a cuppa and some cake. Hopefully next time I will be there myself to say hello.
    The menu is actually now available online here at Teak Door if you are interested. https://teakdoor.com/1212014-post380.html

    Hi, thanks for the information regarding this place. Will give them a phone later and try to get booked in.

    I contacted the Sunee Grand by e-mail to book a room, but they came back with the old Thai Favourite, superior rooms are sold out but you can book a deluxe room for 1700 baht/per night, why do they always try to fleece you like that?. So they just lost a three night booking.

    I will be Ubon from the 23rd September 2010 for three days, first visit for myself driving down from Nakhon Phanom.

    On a slightly different topic, anybody know where in Ubon I can buy software for a Mac computer ?



    Best Regards

    ^ I stayed at the Phadaeng last night, it's good value for 500bht and well located.
    The main farang boozer in town, Wrongway cafe, is just 200m up the road.

    There is an IT arcade in the shopping complex attached to the Sunee. I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find Mac software there, but it's no Panthip Plaza or Tukcom.

    Hi, good to know that everybody thinks it's a good value place to stay. phoned them today and managed to get booked in for three nights from the 23rd.

    Might have a visit to some of the expat bars or places to eat, do any of them have free wifi ?

    Will visit the mall and see what I can find software wise.

    Just got home after staying 5 nights at the Phadaeng mansion, two more than planned due to circumstances.

    Really good place to stay in a great central location. Well worth the 500 baht/per night. The owner and staff were really really good to us and could not have been more helpful.

    Good WiFi available in the rooms, they also have computers free to use in the lobby areas. The owner is really into his fine art and the place is decorated with Michel Angelo and Van Gogh paintings throughout. They also supply free coffee at breakfast time.

    I can thoroughly recommend Phadaeng Mansion as a place to stay in Ubon, and know I will stay there again if I visit Ubon again in the future.

    Best Regards
    Ragandbone man

    Hi all, I checked into the Phadaeng Mansion last night. The desk clerk was outstanding and the rooms were ready with the AC already running. As stated by so many on this thread the rooms are very nice for 500 baht.

    The only concern I have is I was told during a phone conversation with Phadaeng Mansion that they don't have a monthly rate. I've not only read they have a monthly rate on this thread but also on the Phadaeng Mansion's own blog. I'll talk to them again today face to face just to make sure. If they don't have a monthly rate I'll have to look for another place to stay as I'm staying for a few months. That would be a shame as this hotel is really nice.

    I am a newbie to this board and will introduce my self in the newbie thread soon.

    Jon

    Obviously they are not in it for charity, so they dispensed with the monthly rate 'cus the place is getting more popular. Camp there for a few days while you work out a killer monthly deal elsewhere.

    Thanks Sabang,
    We will stay here for three days and look around. It really is a nice place to bad they have dispensed with monthly rates. We still need to talk with the day manager and see what they say.

    Ye, great place to stay, down for our second visit tomorrow night, only staying the one night this time.

    Not sure we will be back in Ubon again, looks like our business there will be finished tomorrow night or Saturday morning at the latest.

    Best of luck getting your monthly rate buzzy.

    Regards

    Stay there every time we go to town
    friendly, rooms good, 500 Baht a night or 800 for the family room, have 2 small kids.
    WiFi and farang TV and they give you a DVD player if you ask. Staggering distance from the Wrong way.
    Now that Ubon has taxis, easy to get anywhere, cheap from there. Jim

    Have you tried T3 yet Jim? That's my new home away from home if I am not at the Sunee.

    Great thing about these towns is the incredible value when it comes to accommodation.

    Makes touring a pleasure.

    Still relevant.

    Your right about that Terry - 500 baht will always get you a very decent place to stay - IMO about the equivalent to a 1,500 baht place in Bangkok.

    Here is a review I did on T3. T3 House Ubon Ratchathani | Family life in rural Thailand & Australia

    As for the ghosts at Sunee? The only spirits there are from the liquor store down stairs in the super market.

    Sunee or part of it was once a hospital, by the way just came back from your town. They are having some sort of fertility festival, lots of very pretty dancing girl and lots of men and boys dressed as girl. People carrying big penises and tomorrow the rocket festival. Jim
