“Value for money Hotel close to the Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Been on a trip to Thailand with a shoe string budget and stayed at this hotel for couple of days. The place has a superb location close to the beach and the shopping areas. Also lot of food options nearby. The staff is generally polite and did not have any issues with the language.

The rooms are not 5 star and don't expect a lavish facilities, but the place is decent and clean.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our first visit to Phuket. If you are on a budget this is perfect. The reception girl was great, free water everyday and beach towels to check out at the desk. We stayed in room 402 with a balcony, but I would suggest a larger room 401, 301. The bed was hard but I still slept well. The street this hotel is on had a great breakfast place called Orchid restaurant and the laundry service, massage and convenience store, and shopping stalls are all recommended.

I stayed at this property for 6 nights and very much enjoyed my stay. I booked a room with a balcony and stayed on the third floor. The young lady who is the manager of the hotel is very nice, polite and friendly and also speaks really good english. At check in she walked me to my room to make sure everything was ok and to show me how to use the electronic safe. In the room waiting for me was a nice plate of fruit with many orchids on top. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the air con worked good. The hotel has wireless internet, but I could not get my laptop to connect? Mog (the hotel manager) tried to help me but we had no luck. She even offered to move my room to one on the second floor that was and upgrade to the one I was staying in since I could not get the internet to work. I politely declined because come to find out it was my laptop that was the problem and not the hotel's internet connection. I was able to connect using my ipod and everything was fine.

The hotel is situated on a quiet side street just off the beach road and very close to shopping, many restaurants and Bangla Rd. It is a three minute walk to the beach and the hotel offers beach towels downstairs in the lobby to it's guests.

I was very pleased with my stay and would not hesitate to go back again on my next trip to Phuket.

The rooms were HUGE compared to most of the others we stayed in in SE Asia. The beds were very comfortable with crisp white sheets. The bathroom was clean with all the amenities. Cable tv with some English channels was a plus. The staff at the reception desk was always very happy and friendly. The beach towel service for free was very handy and we used it. The location was fabulous being only a block from the beach, and a short walk to the main restaurant and shopping area. We booked a island tour with the tour agency attached to the hotel and within our 7 months of travelling SE Asia it was one of the best tours we’ve been on. Sorry, I cant remember the name of the company we went with, but I’m sure the family that runs it will know. We would stay here again.

Had previously stayed at another guesthouse around 30 mts away a few months ago but booked at the Grand Orchid Inn on this occasion as asia rooms had a deal (2400 baht for 5 nights total). Staff were very friendly and the room was clean and tidy. Free drinking water was provided everyday and the room was cleaned eveyday also.

Nothing fancy but again an excellent location - perfect for people who want a spotless room 1 min walk to Theewawong Rd (beach rd), and surrounded by all the shops and bars but without the noise.

Only tip would be is to get a room with a balcony if you stay here as i had a huge window with a view of the hotel being built next door..... 1.5mts away from my window. Couldnt open the curtains at all for the duration of the stay as you would be eye to eye with the workers.
