Brilliant big and clean rooms, nice pool lovely staff and all for a good price

Little bit out the way maybe 10 mins walk or 60 baht on a motorbike taxi but good and quiet at night

Even get a new towel design every day really excellent stay

I tell all my friends about the Sun Hill Hotel and I think I've stayed there about 7 or 8 times now.

It is away from the hustle and bustle of Patong yet still very accessible at the south end of Patong's Soi Nanai. The beach is about a kilometre away and its about 2 kilometres to Bangla Rd.

The best thing about Sun Hill is the friendly and helpful owner and hotel staff. On arrival you are greeted by very polite and immaculately dressed reception staff. Daeng, Fon and the manager Roman go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The room was as described on website, beautiful and clean with excellent facilities and free internet access. The quality of the rooms is fantastic. Each delightfully appointed with modern, comfortable, furnishings.

The only downside is probably its location, however I feel this is more than compensated for, by the quality of service and value for money the hotel provides.

I borrowed the title from another review I read however it is so apt for the Sun Hill I had to use it. I have always enjoyed my stay at the Sun Hill Hotel and won't stay anywhere else in Patong.

The staff were really friendly and you provide a safe at reception for you to use.

The pool is lovely and worth cooling off in after the heat and sea salt!

The location however is not perfect, its located up a hill and not near the central area. However it is only 15mins to the beach and maybe 25mins walk into the centre.

Well after a bustling few days in Bangkok at the mystic place...me and wifey (on honeymoon) headed to Patong in Phuket...had read about Sunhill (good reviews on trip advisor)....and also imagined that Patong was not my cup of tea...but had to see it to believe (also my wife seemed touristy)...so for first timers to Patong and its madness...Sunhill is perfect....quiet and clean...away from some of the uglier things you are bound to see (to each his own...but i like quiet places)...the rooms were well furnished...very warm wooden furnishing...the service was cool and composed...they did actually do a little extra...and made you feel less touristy....Its basically good rooms....and a small clean pool....the towel arrangements made by the staff were adorable and a big hit with us....as we had a car and explored the Island (the best way to do it)...we figured the we liked the Kata beach area....cape Panwa...Karon Beach and driving to the Phang Nga Island.....we took tips from the lovely Jamie Monk's Phuket Blog (even met him at one of his recommended eating hangouts)....but having said that....Sunhill is close to Patong beach ....and we found it very relaxing....and so clean...the place smelt nice (important).....so yeah recommended.....also..the girls at the reception are hot..;)

From the moment you make contact with this hotel you just know that you are going to have a great experience! Roman, the General Manager, will quickly respond and attempt to meet your every expectation, including arranging your airport pickup, advising on tours/restaurants, local hotspots, transportation, shopping, to insuring your personal comfort at his hotel.
When we arrived at the airport our car/driver was waiting for us and he took us for a comfortable 40 min ride to the hotel. The hotel is located on the edge of Patong up a slight grade. It is away from the noise of Patong, but only a 10 min walk to the beach. Of course there is always an inexpensive taxi waiting right at the hotel is need a ride. Fon, the Front Desk Manager, was waiting for us and took us to our room which was on the first floor with a balcony overlooking a nice pool and a tranquel sitting area. Our room was nicely appointed and very clean. I loved the wood accent. There is free wifi and a nice tv. The beds were a little hard and when I brought this to Fon's attention within five minutes she had foam mattress tops brought which were vey comfortable. Our room was thoroughly cleaned every day and the housekeeping woman was always available to address any needs we might have. The flowers on the beds evey day was a nice touch.
This hotel is very quiet and relaxing, easy to get to sleep and also to sleep in late. The cleanliness is exceptional. One morning when coming to breakfast early I saw four hotel employees, including Fon, on their hands and knees scrubbing the lobby floor. The hotel restaurant is great, open air, inviting, with very good inexpensive food and wonderfull service! We had breakfast there everyday and several other meals. Try there chocolate sunday on a hot day, it is really good. Room service is the same price as in the restaurant, delivered hot with no service charge.
When it came time to leave you felt like you were leaving friends. You can stay at a more expensive hotel but none can match the outstanding personal service that you will receive, or the wonderfull feeling of relaxation! This is a great hotel!!!

This is the second time I have stayed at the sun hill hotel and I have to stay it was like coming home to family with the welcome you receive. Had requested two rooms on the ground floor next to the pool this was sorted with no problem and with a smile. Rooms are a good size and are very clean and tidy they clean the rooms around what you are doing and not at a set time this is great if you have had a heavy night. There is a very nice restaurant of site that does some amazing food well worth a visit. All in all I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone

A very warm thank you to Roman, Dang and all the amazing staff that make the Sun Hill so nice
We chose Sunhill because of the many numerous excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed!
We booked for 2 nights and ended up staying for 7. What more can I say. We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunhill Experience
Hotel is located in a Nanai road some 5 minutes from Patong by scooter/motorbike or taxi if you prefer. We hired a bike for our stay and found it very easy to get around the island.
This place is certainly exceptional value for money. The cleanliness and service could not be bettered. Also the view from our room and its balcony was so beautiful
Roman was very friendly and warm. At the end of our stay he arranged a minivan to the airport for FREE which was very nice and comfortable.
Overall, I loved my stay there and I hope to revisit in the near future.
