Reviewed December 11, 2013

Stayed in sea view room for 7 days...no view on sea but then did not expect that for the price. Comfortable and clean accommodation and friendly service. Nothing to complain about and nice and close to beach and Surien Bay is much better than Patong if you need a more relaxed atmosphere.

Stayed here in Sea view room for 3 nights whilst in Surin beach. Great value for money for the room which included breakfast, choice of the breaky menu which was lovely. Room was good clean with king bed and nice balcony with table and chairs on balcony to relax on. View of beach obscured by trees but that didnt matter. Has restaurant and bar with great atmosphere and staff friendly. Does not have pool but beach only 100 metre walk so close. Hotel aranged airport transfer for us for only 600thb which was good and car was ready and waiting at time we asked. Overall very happy with our stay and hospitality. Good hotel if you want place close to beach that is not a resort and is very reasonably priced. Recommend you book the deluxe seaview or luxury seaview for the balcony.

I fully understand the "you get what you pay for" and this would apply to the Surin Bay Inn. It's cheap enough, and clean enough, but there just wasn't a level of service. Best part is getting admonished for leaving the driver at the airport for two hours. Yes, complimentary pickup, but they never confirmed with me so I had to make my own arrangements. Oh, and the pillows smelled damp and yes... sweaty. Don't expect service or flexibility here - a clean bed, clean room, the basic amenities. With spotty AC and no AC to speak of in the public area/lobby/restaurant area.

Room Tip: all of this hotel is a "walkup" meaning no elevator. Just keep that in mind.

Have stayed here a number of times over the years and although it is comfortable, it is really not a hotel per say. The rooms are large, however the facilities are quite limited. Room this time around, had an air conditioner that didn't work and they placed a fan in the room to compensate.
Details inside the room sate that there is complimentary water, however upon check-out I was charged 25 baht for a bottle of water that is 7 baht at 7/11. Redeeming features are that the staff are friendly and as long you don't expect too much, this is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Try and choose a room with a flat screen TV.

Hello all the other travellers who are thinking which hotel to choose for the vacation! :) We've just arrived from ours and would like to say that Surin Bay INN is a really PERFECT place to stay! We felt ourselves as at home there :) The room (we booked a Luxury room with a balcony) is very cosy, clean, light, moscito net behind the balcony doors which also could be opened, with tea and coffee and 2 bottles of water everyday, with TV with many programmes. Our parents had a Standart room and everything is perfect too (just without a balcony). Shampoo, towels, bath gel, soap, cotton buds. Beach towels which you can take by yourselves to go to the beach.

If you live on the 3rd-4th floor with a balcony - you even can see a sea from there! Near the hotel is really many shops, restaurants, massages, there is tuk-tuk (taxi) service as well. The morning-day-evening stuff speaks English perfectly (except night stuff; but they are really nice and wishing to help you so even if they don't speak English they'll understand you and you'll understand them. Just keep all your serious questions till morning)

Beach is only 3-5 minutes walk from the hotel. And the BEACH IS AMAZING! One of the best beaches we've seen in Phuket (we've seen many - around 8 beaches). And we like Surin beach the best! Water motorbikes, parasailing, massage at the beach, plenty of cafe, bars, restaurants, shops etc. Noone getting bored there! At the night there are many beach restaurants to choose. Very nice and beautiful :)

You can choose what you would like to have for a breakfast from the menu and that's not all - the breakfast is served all day long! :) So even if you are sleepy-creepy and wish to sleep till 2 p.m. after you wake up you can have your breakfast! :) Also if something you would like to bite is not on the menu you can ask to cook it if your "wish" is similar to menu offer (for example they don't have boiled eggs on menu, only fried etc. and I have boiled as well) :)

If you have any questions - the hotel stuff reply every question and every mail carefully so you will get a response for each your "petition" :) So do not hesitate to contact the hotel. You'll get your response asap.

Also if you stay at the hotel for 3 days or more you can have a FREE transfer from or to the Phuket International Airport (which is located in 30-40 minutes from the hotel if you go by car) :)

So the conclusion is that we are planning to go to Phuket again next year as a part of our vacation and will stay at this hotel again :) We recommend this hotel to everyone! For couples (noone will disturb), for families (the hotel is really cosy), for families with children (there is calm and quiet on high floors), for friends and seniors - you'll find a great company if you'll wish to!

The hotel doesn't have a pool there but you don't need it if you're in Thailand :) The sea is much more better than any pool, believe us! But if you still want to swim in a pool - just go to any neighborhood hotel and ask about the swimming pool at the reception. Thais are really easy going and take everything easy so paying some baths I'm sure you can use any hotel's pool (cause people who are staying in those hotels don't use pools at all - we see no people there, everyone was on the beach) :)

P.S.: I'm sorry for any mistakes in my review cause English is not my mother tongue and I was in hurry to write it. Wanna tell you everything! :) Bye-bye friends. Enjoy your Thailand vacation as we did! We're in love with this country, really! And now also in love with Surin Bay Inn's service as well!

This a bit of home from home.. The Hotel is run by Mai & Terry Hogg. She is Thai and he is from Hull. They are a great couple and have owned this Hotel for about 20 years. We have stayed there on a number of occasions, have recommended it to friends, and made a lot of friends while staying there. Nothing is to much trouble for them and they will go out of their way to make sure you have a great time while you stay with them.
Food and drink good. They have a Thai and Western menu, but if you ask they will do their best to make you something off the menu, within reason...
The rooms are clean.
Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The Bar Man is a hoot...

The hotel is in great location on Surin beach and the room we booked was over looking the beach thru the trees.

Value for money and good western food as well and cold beers at the friendly bar.

Good computer room to check e-mails.
Also a new car to do airport pick service which we did not use.

Room Tip: Great Location near Surin Beach
