“Nice little place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2008

I found this place while stranded in Phuket because of the protesters overtaking Bangkok's airport. I have to say I was quite surprised. The rooms were basic but very clean and comfortable and AC worked great. The pool is big and your only a five minute walk to the beach! Best of all was the staff, they were exceptional and that is why I give this place such a good review. Oh yeah great Pad Thai and they have a lot of German foods too!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2008

We found that this place was ok for 1 night before taking a flight from Phuket airport. The rooms were fine and the food was decent, but it's definitely not beautiful by any stretch of the imagination! Unfortunately, we received a large number of bedbug bites from our one night here. The room also suffered from noise from neighbours and a small road running right behind.

  • Liked — Close to the airport and friendly staff
  • Disliked — Bedbugs!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2008

We stayed at the Golddiggers after a liveaboard in the Andaman Sea. We had two days to kill before we could fly so we decided to avoid Patong and stay further up the beach. Lonely Planet recommended the Swiss-run Golddiggers so we booked before coming back to land. As was stated in LP, the fan room was totally fine- we weren't too hot at night without AC and it was considerably cheaper. They don't have hot water though which was surprising. Their location is about 10 minutes from the beach and I wish I'd known that before booking. Not a big deal as the walk was easy and we got to see a lot more that way. Overall, it was a fine stay. They have a nice pool and wifi internet which was great for all the errands we had to do while staying.
