the OLD PHUKET rooms are exactly what they say i am sorry to say they didn't meet our expectations as soon as we walked in we walked back out . We went to reception to complain about the room and they said this is the DELUXE accommodation we said it wasn't up to UK standards(think Spain 1970s) we were showed... More

We will definitely be returning to The Old Phuket, it is set back from the street and is clean and very comfortable. We stayed in the Sino wing (highly recommend), it will be refurbished next month (although it wont need much as it was lovely). It was very comfortable and staff were extremely helpful in all areas. The location of... More

This was our first visit to Thailand and my wife and I could not have wished for a better holiday. After a couple of days madness in Bangkok we were really looking forward to a relaxing time in Phuket. The Old Phuket fitted the bill perfectly, great room, friendly and really helpful staff. The location is ideal with a variety... More

Stayed for 14 nights with my partner, we were booked into Sino wing but a little too tired for my liking did look better on website. Upgraded to Serene Wing on 4 th floor & couldn't be happier huge room with bath & walk in shower, the only problem is the toilet issue I think guests should be told about... More

Lobby was unique and charming though some of the greeneries could have been better placed rather than obscuring the more stunning design elements. Location was great- walking distance (less than 10min easy stroll to Karon beachfront through a small shopfront and restaurant filled street- so much quieter than beachfront properties with their loud live band bars). Lovely pool in the... More

Stayed in Serene Wing again, love the bathrooms in these rooms and the beds are so firm and comfortable. Rooms are spotless and all the staff very friendly. 2 bottles of free water in the room each day is a very good idea and as return guests there was a welcome back display of flowers in our room, which was...

After reading the reviews on trip adviser, I was a little nervous. But this hotel was just fantastic. We arrived around midnight, and there were numerous friendly staff there to welcome us, take our bags, help us with wifi, restaurants and give us advice on the hotel. The room was beautiful, we stayed in the Sino Wing, and looked over... More

The location is very good as it is set back from the busy main road and secluded. Also the location within Karon is good as you have a great choice of bars and restaurants. The beach is lovely but a lot of jellyfish in the sea. Hotel itself is very clean and tidy. Breakfast is ok but would prefer more... More

This I have to say is one amazing place. Its on Karon Beach which is a quieter beach away from Patong areas. The hotel hasn't got beach frontage but is literally a 5 min walk. The rooms are THE biggest I have ever stayed in . Literally enormous. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel with pool view... More
