“Long Term Stay At M&K Guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

I Have been staying at M&K Guesthouse for almost 3 months now under the new Aussie Owners, Ross and Ann. There is nothing to complain about at all. I stay in a superior Double Bed room and it is absolutely awesome. Large, spacious, and I absolutely dare anyone to find better showers anywhere in Thailand, never mind Phuket. Its like being under a waterfall when you're under it. If that was not enough there is also a full seperate bath tub and a small balcony. My balcony faces out to the hills at the back of the Guesthouse on the fourth floor which is very very quiet.

The bed is a a Kingsize Bed and my room has 2 bedside cabinets either side of the bed. The room also features a nice wooden top with a fridge (small ice box/freezer inside, which you can fill up yourself with whatever foods & drinks you buy from outside) and work space for either laptops or desktop computers. There is a large mirror in the room itself as well as a smaller one in the shower/bath/restroom area. Naturally there is a decent sized television and about 70 cable (not satellite) channels to choose from including movie channels and other channels in english as well as other foregn languages and of course Thai as well. There is also free WiFi which has recently been upgraded with access points on each floor ensuring good reception irrespective of what floor you may stay on.

My overall experience has been very good here and Ross and Ann are genuinely both super friendly as well as both having a good sense of humour. There is also a fully functional bar with an Elvis Presley theme, with many framed pictures of the King of Rock & Roll hanging from the walls. They also have a small restaurant, and though the menu is not huge, you can order the most popular types of breakfast as well as several authentic Thai dishes. Perfect if you don't want to go out or just want a quick bite to eat. The Thai dishes are super yummy and very well priced :)

In my opinion its the ideal location too. Only 3/4 minutes walk to the famous huge shopping mall, Jung Ceylon, and then maybe another 5 minutes to the center of Patong where most of the nightlife is and clubs are and then a further 5 minutes walk to the beach. So very importantly: far enough to not be in the middle of the constant noise and drunken people but close enough to easily get to by foot. Having the shopping Mall so close by is great because there is a huge supermarket inside, Big C, where you can buy all kinds of food, drink, etc.. etc.., making it even cheaper to stay here if you are on a budget and don't want to eat out all of the time. The shopping Mall also has a cinema complex, shopping of all descriptions and a bowling alley.

The location is also good because its full of locals and nice bars, cafes out of the main strip, so once again if you don't fancy a night out but rather a drink and talking to the locals who are usually quite frinedly, then its perfect to do that here.

A long review I know, but it was well worth the time to write it. Highly recommended :)

Room Tip: I stay in the superior room because its so much more worth it, to pay just so little more, but to ha...

We have just stayed at M & K guesthouse, what wonderful service from the New Aussie/Dutch owners. Can't say enough about the great showers and wonderful service from the staff. Great Breakfast and great location right in Patong.Close to Jungceylon shopping and Baanzan markets, kick boxing and beach. it doesnt have an elevator but a small price to pay for a lovely guest house. Great Rates are also a great attraction. Would recommend for Family's, Single's etc. Many thanks to Anne & Ross and the staff for making our stay so Lovely.

Room Tip: Go for the Delux rooms Or Superior and you wont be disappointed.

Not-so-great location. A 15 minute walk to the beach and the party district.

No breakfast; Had to bargain to get laundry costs down! The rooms we stayed in didnt have windows and as a consequence we felt like we were caged in a little. But the rooms are extremely clean.

We asked around after getting to Patong and figured out that were, in fact, better places to stay in at the same price.
