    Adios Summer Breeze

    Hey gents. Well, I thought I would go on forever, but as of Oct 1st, I will no longer be running Summer Breeze,
    A guy from the UK, Wales, is buying out part of the hotel and will be running it, and Kurt, my partner is buying most of the rest of it.
    I will still have a very minor interest in the operation for a number of years. i will remain here until the beginning of the year....then who knows.
    I'll still come here and stay anytime I want, which may be quite often or not much, I'm not certain at this time.
    This will enable me to spend more time with my wife, but I really don't care that much for Udon. So, we may look elsewhere.
    Anyway, I appreciate all of you that have either stayed here or said good things about the hotel.
    I also appreciate the friendships that I have made.
    I'll still be here on the board a pain in the ass....to some people.
    Cheers.
    Bill

    All the best in all future endeavors, Bill. It must have been an interesting chapter in your life to say the least. Hopefully the standards you have set will remain and continue in your absence. I sure owe a few good memories to SB.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    All the best..... although I never stayed at SB i always ate there several times in my two week stays. The quality of service and food was always on point and hope that continues.

    be great to hear some of the more outrages story's ....but like all good hotel men Bills lips are sealed....i had some great times at the summer breeze but did move on to another hotel in my last few years in Patong

    i suspect that bill might have thrown in the towel as he could not keep any staff..his guests were marrying them 5555555555
    good luck in what ever you going to do in the future Bill

    I wish you all the best in your future Bill and thank you for looking after a "newbie" with free advice and an amazingly good staff.

    Perhaps you and Air will come visit us in Chiang Mai Bill? If not for SBH and a nearby (somtum lunch) restaurant I may never have met Jo.
    Cheers, Rob.

    All the best in your "retirement" Bill.
    You ran a fine operation there at SB.
    I'm still here to argue with 555!
    Chok dee.

    I was there last summer for the first time and loved it! The rooms and the food was great. My wife loved it too. We are also booked there for a week at the end of November, so I hope it will not fall apart until then

    C'mon give him a break.
    He's approaching 70, his knees are fckd and he must be fed up with dealing with the public by now.
    Let him spend some quality time with his Missus and relax.

    Why don't you and your Missus put your c*ck on the block and invest in Dukes yourselves?

    You mean when the Cn tourists invade? 55

    The smoke can be as bad in Udon, right across the north, but CM's valley will hold it in, contain it under inversion layers if weather conditions permit. We've had one bad year in last 4. Schedule o/s trips for april/may takes care of it.
