Stayed here for 3 days. Chose it based on reviews, proximity to beach (walking distance) and, of course, the great name! We had a lovely room, number 7. It was big with a balcony. We were pretty disorganised with our plans whilst we were here and the owner helped us book ferry tickets/ day trips/ moped hire all with <12... More

I wasn't very happy with my stay here! In the first night, it was raining a bit, and my room was flooded - apparently, the windows weren't waterproof... My backpack and camera bag were completely wet! The owner just told me not to put anything on the floor and let me dry my wet stuff in the laundry room. No... More

About 300000THB was used to repair ,but unfortunately the crack... More

Stayed for seven nights and enjoyed a clean, quiet, spacious room with very good beds. The owner and staff were very friendly and keen to help if necessary and interested to offer a pleasant stay. The beach is in short walking distance. If you describe tour pickups or something alike that the guesthouse is located behind the pizza company in... More

I stayed at the hostel nearby that didn't have a restaurant, so I was very happy to have stumbled across this little place in search of good food. I was just looking for something for less than 100 baht, and I ended up having the creamiest, most delicious green curry (vegetarian) I've had in all of thailand. Excellent!!!!!

We stood at a nice big room. The breakfast was includet. And the all the food was very good....and a lovely owner. It is close to the beach, pharmacy, supermarket. You can rent motorbikes and get free beach stuff. If we are back in Phuket one day we'll come back.

Free pick-up from the airport for more then a week's stay was a nice perk when arriving after a long flight. The owner Terje and his staff are friendly and attentive. Rooms are large, clean and the beds are the most comfortable I've had yet in Asia. Quick walk right to Kata Beach though the path down a canal that... More

The rooms are clean and very large. The host Tereya is very welcoming and friendly. All of the staff are friendly. It's a great place to relax as it doesn't feel like a business operation when you stay. It is also complimented by sensational restaurant on site.

Based on earlier reviews and prices, we chose Kata beach and specifically SFR for our stay at Phuket. SFR may not be the place to stay for those who are looking for a room with a view but as we were in our room only for the night, we didn't regret our decision in any way. One has a choice... More

Loved it here! Good location and short walk from the beach. We were able to book our transport from Phuket - Ko Samui here, aswell as hire a motorbike :) the owner is really friendly, but kept telling us how he doesn't like booking.com. We ended up getting moved into another guesthouse a block away (which was good to) because... More
