Me and my friends loved it. It's situated on one of the main streets of Kata Beach but when you enter the resort you forget about it because whole thing is like a huge garden. It's quiet and you feel like in tropics. The staff is very polite and helpful, most of then speak decent English. Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfasts were the weakness of KataCHouse, awful taste and poor choice. Surprisingly the food in hotel restaurant was very good.

Room Tip: I would NOT recommend wooden bungalows because they're poorly located and they have a weird smel...

I read the reviews prior to making reservations and initially had reservations.  The rooms are accommodating, the linens are crisp and there was plenty of hot water. The shower is typical Thai so I had no issues. The hotel is off the street so you don't hear the main drag. It's conveniently close to the beach, cross the street and make a left or right, left for south Kata beach, right for north. The hotel has it's own restaurant and some folks had purchased coupons in advance--buffet is 150 baht, includes eggs cereal, fried rice, Thai dishes, fruit, juices--enough to keep you going until dinner. They do serve dinner but there are too many options to count. There's a 7-11 two doors down (with ATM and currency exchange). The wifi is located in the office area and is shut down by 10pm. The office area and restaurant is not air conditioned, but for the price and location--I couldn't complain. The pool was not as crowded as I previously read and there were many Russian families--pleasant and friendly, didn't encounter any drunks or rude behavior. I did enjoy the lush gardens, flowers, trees. This is a humid climate so expect mosquitoes in the am and pm (they carry repellent at the front desk). I found staff reliable and friendly--Mr. Son (Sontaya) was my driver and is an excellent guide. He is very polite, speaks English and is extremely helpful. When I return to Kata--I will return to this hotel.

No complaints with the hotel itself - just let down by the staff who came across as rude and indifferent, making absolutely no attempt to be accommodating to the requests of its clientele.

The resort itself is quiet and the hotel was far from busy - yet the staff showed absolutely no interest in whether you stayed with them or not. Absolutely no effort made to retain our custom and no effort to be friendly with us at all.

Would not stay here again.

Kata Country house was very pretty and the pool was great. Rooms were average and the breakfast buffet included in room price was awesome! Very far from the beach but not a bad location. Good value for the price

I was really torn between a 3 or a 4 rating.

Excellent location. Nice and quiet when inside and well away from the chaos of Kata main street. The resort/hotel to westerners is a definite 2 star. But then it is one of the better value places in Kata.

The owners make it sound like an idyllic, landscaped, tropical retreat. It isn't. But still to be fair it is fairly well kept but I certainly would not go near the bungalows to the rear by the awful "pond" (??!!) that has horrid stagnant water. You are asking for trouble and you will be eaten alive. In true Thai style they will not spray for mosquitoes as this might cost $50. Pick your room carefully! The pool is very small and will get crowded with a mere 10-15 people.

BEWARE; The dog is dangerous.

We saw it take a savage bite out of a guests arm to draw blood. What if this was a child?? Perish the thought. The dog should NOT be anywhere near people when the owners know it is dangerous and this is extreme negligence....they have a sign..." Do not pet the dog". Please add..."Dangerous dog". Better still take it away.

Our room was fine ...no issues save for the bathroom which is the usual Thai style for lower end places and I don't like these with the plastic curtain and weak shower.. We had a room in a quiet area and room outside for my rented jeep. It was just outside the pool area and we had no issues with noise or any disturbance. As already posted here it is, as everywhere in Kata now, full of Russians and you could get a rowdy lot to wreck your holiday. Kata for your information is little Russia. But, again, we had no problems.

Kata is split into two areas...and the beach itself. This hotel is right between the two and so you have a 5 minute stroll to either part of Kata. On the doorstep are loads of restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The road to the upper part can be tricky with parked cars and no footpath....so be very careful!!

The man on reception was excellent, a genuinely friendly helpful guy. It is dated and silly to have WiFi only in the reception area and this needs to be sorted and made available throughout the whole resort as this is essential nowadays and cheap to install.

Breakfast is a fairly dismal affair with watered orange squash, mean dry bread, cold horrid bacon and tinned sausages. I only ate fruit, cereal and fresh cooked eggs and bought my own yoghurt. It was enough and got me through.

Because of the bathroom, the WiFi issue, the poor breakfast, the small pool, the dangerous dog with no concern from the owners, the filthy pond with an air force of mosquitoes...... I had to go for 3 rating.

We stayed 4 nights at Kata Country House recently after moving from the place we originally booked (Full Moon Beach Resort which is badly in need of a makeover). We paid the same price as we were charged at Full Moon but the standard & service at Kata Country House was far superior.

We had a room (with balcony) in one of the buildings at the back of the resort so it was relatively quiet being away from the pool area. Room was fitted out well & very comfortable with tea/coffee making equipment. Cleaned daily & free bottles of water. It has a refrigerator, towels are provided for pool and beach at the front desk.

The pool is great. This is quite a big place so it was busy but there were plenty of sun lounges. Buffet breakfast is included.

The staff were extremely polite and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as a comfortable place to stay for budget conscious travellers.

Room Tip: Rooms at back are more private than around the pool.
