First came in 2005, as friends were staying here, but eventually moved in myself, given its prime location, good prices, and multi-lingual owner. Then came again in 2007 for a whole month. And just stayed for 2 weeks in May/June 2014. The hotel also hosts a Chess club, and the owner is a force to be reckoned with in that... More

The rooms are large with nice decor. There was proper cleaning every day. The location is central in Kata Beach and close to the night market that occurs twice a week. The staff were very friendly and gracious (polite) and took care to ensure their guests were looked after. The owner Terje was very interactive with the guests and knowledgeable... More

A friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in January this year and I have to say I couldn't have asked for a better place for what we paid! The accommodation here was one of the cheapest of our 2 week trip around the Thai islands and what we got for it was brilliant. Firstly the hotel is located... More

We stayed three nights at Southern Fried Rice above Kata Beach. Our amiable and assiduous host, Terje Hoff, provided extraordinary service and, for Phuket, pretty good value. His airport pickup went smoothly, and was a godsend in chaotic Phuket. The half a dozen rooms above his restaurant were tidy and quiet. The hot water was hot and the air conditioning... More

We, 2 adults and 3 children, stayed at this guesthouse for a week january 2014. Cheap and clean room, excellent food and Terje is very helpful and kind. He booked us a trip to Similan for a very good price. Can recommend this guesthouse. Not far away from the beach. There`s a market just 50 m away twice a week.... More

We stayed in room 4 for 9 nights in January 2014. Our friends also stayed there in another room on the first floor. What can I say, Norwegian owner, Terje, is absolutely amazing! He was always friendly and eager to help. Clearly he enjoys chatting with his customers, yet he's never intrusive. He made sure that we get good deals... More

The first day of our stay was 25 Nov. Co-incidentally, it was the owner, Terje’s birthday. We have special discount for food, free dinner and yummy cake that night. Terje is friendly and helpful. He helped to arrange trips and transport at a very good rate. Ratsami and Ya are hospitable and hardworking. They can cook all sorts of food,... More

We stayed there 2 days this august. Weather was bad so we didn't get out much. The hotel keepers are really nice and helpful which I'd say is the best about this hotel. The room was great as well, absolutely no noise, comfy for a cheap hotel too. There were only two bad points: some clothes had run onto the... More
