We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Old Phuket for our honeymoon. It was wonderful, full of old school colonial charm which made me feel like I was in another era, or a BBC drama! The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. As we checked in we got a complimentary drink of cold juice and a refreshing... More

We had a 10 day stay at The Old Phuket, Karon Beach and couldn't have got a nicer hotel. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Loved the "guards" at the gates. Our room was spacious and clean, with a great ensuite. We were lucky to have a room opening on to the pool, in the new wing. Liked the... More

Had a great holiday at The Old Phuket. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast. Minibus for visits to market, Patong and Phuket town, very useful. Grounds well maintained. Would stay there again. Lovely room in Serene Wing looking out over pool.

Our first visit to Thailand. We were originally booked in to the Sino wing. On arrival we were upgraded to the Serene wing. Absolutely delighted with our room, spacious and immaculately clean. The hotel and grounds always clean and tidy, lovely fragrant frangipani trees and exotic plants. Loved the Myna birds, chirping all day long, well kept. Breakfast ample and... More

This hotel was better than we expected. Rooms in the new wing (around the pool) are superb. Location is out of this world - within walking distance of shops, beach, restaurants and bars and massage parlours. There is a pharmacy nearby too. Transfers and tours were easily arranged and meals were good. Initially we had some air con problems, but... More

We stayed in the Sino wing and the room is all you need, basic,but comfortable. From the moment we arrived, the staff were pleasant, always smiling and greeting. The room could have done with a few touch-ups, but we only slept there, so I overlooked the cracks in the walls. The complimentary and paid for water confused us, as this... More

To the management and staff, thank you for making our holiday a truly special time away from home. We had booked a room in the Sino wing but upon arrival found that it was not up to standard I immediately reported this to the duty Manager, Bill, he visited the room with me and made a note of my concerns....
