The location of the hotel is okay. However, it is much smaller than they portray it to be and the attitude of the staff is terrible. The owner himself (or the manager) is a nice person; however, in his absence the staff was quite rude and racist. We requested them to pack our breakfast on the day we had to... More

Hotel was small. The hotel was located super far from patong beach. I personally do not recommend this hotel because the walking distance took us more than 20 mins to reach patong beach and bangla street. It is better to take their tuktuk/taxi. per ride cost about 200 baht. There was lizard, ants and roaches in our room. But the... More

Rooms are pretty small, noisy air conditioners. Not really a place for couples. The place was clean and the staff very helpful. If you can afford it stay in one of the better hotels with views. The pictures on the website are misleading as it is down a street away from the beach and difficult to find.

We have just left the Orchid Hotel and spa, what a great experience. If you are looking for the Ritz, this is not the place but Anthony and his team provide clean, safe, good value for money accommodation. They can not do enough for you. This is the Far East so things are basic but good. Bring your own hairdryer... More

We were welcomed with beautiful smiles & shown to our room which we found to be very clean with... More

I'm quite surprised by the bad reviews - it was quite ok during my stay! True, the cables might be blocking the sea view but the service I received was pretty good. The owner was a cheerful man and welcomed us enthusiastically. The breakfast set was large and satisfying. The four poster bed was nice and not hard at all.... More
