“My son and me stayed here 13 Oct 2011”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2011

As we were arriving very late I email and ask to be picked up from the airport. For 900baht a taxi was arranged for us.It was really nice to know it was a taxi from the hotel, as I was traveling with my son who has a disability. We were very warmly greeted at the hotel by the night Gard. The room was upstairs this was a little unsafe for my son, but the very next morning we were given a lovely down stairs room. The staff were so helpful and nice nothing was to much trouble. Our room was cleaned every day 2 bottles of water every day. The food was very good. We felt safe and secure. The whole complex was very clean and tide, swimming pools were very nice and clean. Our whole holiday at Kata Country House was Excellent and we are definitely going to stay there again. Very short walk to the beach.

Room Tip: If you are not satisfied with your room, they will do there best to get you a new room. We liked the...

We stayed here for 5 nights. We throughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, tidy and well appointed overlooking the small pool. The breakfast had variety and plentiful. The staff pleasant and helpful considering they work such long hours that most westeners wouldn't cope with. Great location in the middle of Kata, close to everything and set back from the road, the rooms were quiet. Do watch out for the blood thirsty mossies at night and in your room.Spray your room before you go out at night.
We have been to Thailand 3 times and found this hotel the best value for money.
To all the negative commenting people, put it in perspective, it's Thailand.

We found this place on our last trip to Thailand and went back for a couple of nights either side of our trip to Koh Phangan. This is one of the cheaper hotels on Kata Beach and in my opinion a good deal. The rooms are always neat and tidy, staff are very friendly and very accommodating to the needs of their customers. The other benefit for us is the locked draws at reception for your valuables while you go off to the beach for the day. We like to take off on bikes and explore through the day and this location is close enough to both Patong (if that is your thing) or Nai Harn (one of the nicer beaches in Phuket). It is true that this hotel is not a five star resort but the rooms are cleaned daily and the beds both times we have stayed have been comfortable. We did have a problem with the aircon not regulating but when we told the staff they quickly found us another room... ask and you will receive. As for the mosquitos, it is hard to avoid them anywhere in the tropics. I have seen staff spraying early in the morning, so it isn't a case of them not trying. I would recommend to stay closer to the pool area or the front of the hotel as there is a pond out the back which would attract more mosquitos. We bought coils from the 7eleven next door for when we were sitting outside our rooms having a few beverages with other friends and this helped a lot.
For the price you are paying and the location you are staying at this is a nice, quiet place to unwind after a day on the beach. We will no doubt be back there next year when we stop over to go to the islands.

Room Tip: Poolside or closer to the reception is recommended to avoid mosquitos.

Very popular with mosquitos and cockroaches but I didnt care for it much, neither I suspect will you.

Ignore what you read on the hotel website. It is largely fiction. The descriptions do not bear comparison with the reality. Perhaps there is benefit in the translation, if country style bungalow means the same as dingy run down old shack in the Thai language. Then again they also promote themselves as convenient for Patong which actually involves a 25 dollar taxi fare so maybe its all just deliberately misleading.

Substatial charge for internet which works only occasionally and in 20 second bursts at best The aircon made more noise than the 747 i arrived on an there was no fan. I come from England so my expctations aren't that high but even I found the staff to be rude and unhelpful the food terrible.

I booked for four nights but stayed reluctantly for one. If I ever go back I will need two rooms, one for me and another to stable the wild horses that dragged me there.

4 of us stayed fir 3 nights in 2 rooms. Service was excellent, but for the price, rooms should be better. We stayed in superior rooms. Water for shower tooooo weak, room has no power point so if have to charge phone, have to unplug the tv or fridge! For toilet, can't throw toilet paper into toilet bowl and flush. If do so n the toilet is blocked, we have to pay for the repair! This is not a basic convenient for tourist at all, considering we gave to pay about $AUD80 per day! People are great, but convenience of hotel is NOT. Will not recommend this place.

Stayed here for 2 weeks or so. Staff were wonderful. Rooms really good. Their restaurant pretty cheap and cheerful. It's a quiet place though on the main street. Might have been nicer to be closer to the beach than the 8 to 10 minute walk, but not really an issue.No troubles with security - used the safe custody at reception without incident.
