I've been coming to Phuket from Krabi to take occasional breaks from work now and then. What is important to me is a place to park the car as I drive and on this occasion a hotel that also allows pet as I am bringing my puppy along. After searching around the internet, I found Forest Patong Hotel and decided to message them on their Facebook Page to check with them regarding car parking and allowing pets. To my delight they responded positively on both items and I made swift plans to book 2 nights with them.
Forest Patong Hotel is located on the north and starting point of Patong City just within a soi (side road) off the main road on the way to the beach coming from the bypass road. It is not difficult to locate using the map provided on the hotel website. Being in a quieter location away from the buzz of the main beach stretch, it helps if you have your own transport to get around. The hotel provide scooters for rent at 200 baht/day. A Family Mart and a good Thai eatery is just beside the hotel on the right and left so it is also very convenient if you are hungry or in need of some daily supplies.
The rooms are decent and really big on amenities. This is a major plus point considering the reasonable price of accommodation. This is especially so in the low season. There is a 42 inch LCD TV, a DVD player, a personal desktop computer, water boiler, a pair of headphone, mini-fridge, hair-dryer and bathtub provided in the Superior Balcony Room I was staying in and I personally enjoy the strong shower in the bathroom and appreciate the free wireless internet the most.
Service was excellent. The reception is helpful and always greets with a smile. Regarding room cleaning, I usually do not require them on my stays and hangs the 'do not disturb' sign on the door but the service staff made sure by calling to the room phone to check. I left the hotel at about 2pm and found 2 bottles of drinking water being left at the doorstep to my surprise upon returning in the evening. Hospitality here is commendable.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay at Forest Patong Hotel.
