“Lovely place to stay and relax, with a nice view of Patong Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

I was here in March 2013 and February 2014, travelled solo

For me, this is the second time at the Prince Edouard hotel, and the decision that brought me here, was always the same :

- nice and quiet place where I can relax and play a few rounds of golf

Once, I did a research on the internet, and I stumbled upon this place, and I immediately believed that it could be a good solution, which was then confirmed as a whole in my staying.

I must admit, that I'm not the kind of person who take decisions in relation to the comments on the internet, but I trust more on my intuition, which rarely betrayed me until now.

The hotel location is on a hill with a spectacular view over Patong Bay, with a nice swimming pool, and in the evening You can enjoy a spectacular Sunset. The rooms are clean, very spacious and comfortable. The staff is very attentive and friendly, and the structure it's managed a little bit like a family.

For my need the breakfast was good and sufficient, but I know that other people need more alternatives. The cleanliness and maintenance was good, and when I encounter a problem, the staff was always here to resolve it. For my passion ( playing golf ) I just had to ask, and the next day ( if there was space ) I was able to play where I want it.

I can just recommend this place, especially for someone who is looking for a quite place for relaxing, outside the hustle and bustle of Patong.
This is a perfect option.

I came for two days in Phuket to celebrate the chinese new year with my friend. We stay at Prince Edouard. The location is high above sea and have beautiful view. The apartment is nice decorated. The staff was helpful and friendly with us.
I have a good souvenir of this place and advise to go there.
Pim.

Room Tip: The room upstair are big and the view is greater.

The rooms are very tired and outdated.
Breakfast takes anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour depending on wether the staff are awake and is basic to say the least.
There is no restaurant except the breakfast room.
The spa and fitness centre is filled with very old equipment.
Walking into Patong is easy enough , 15 minutes... Walking back is a very steep hill... Not for the frail or elderly.
All in all the place is adequate but not at all luxurious. It needs refurbishing.

Room Tip: A higher floor gets an awesome view

We stayed at this hotel to see what it would be like to cook for ourselves and relax in a quiet place. Overall the place is OK but the bed sheets had holes in them, the cleanliness has a lot to be desired and the ocean view which really could be beautiful is totally blocked by a large, bushy tree beside the pool. Not all of the units have that problem but it just so happened that ours did...lol

If you want cheap accommodation where you can cook for yourself and enjoy the quiet this is the place to go, otherwise get a little better place than this one.

Room Tip: Make sure that you book a room that has a better view of Patong Bay than it does that damn tree...

I've just come back from my second stay at the Prince Edouard Apartments and had a very relaxing time. While there are occasionally some niggly things, these didn't deflect from the stay. The staff are attentive, the rooms clean and very spacious and the views some of the best in Patong of the bay. Sunset views can be breathtaking. If you like to be just outside the hustle and bustle of main Patong, this is an option worth considering.

When I the negative comment on Tripadvisor, I was really hesitant booking at Prince Edouard, even if I got good references through friends who stayed there a year ago.

I decided to go, and was surprised by the great decoration luxury suite I have got, the fantastic view over Patong Bay, and the kindness of the staff.

Absolutely nothing to do with what I could lurn from the comment below (the hotel is also not 20 years old, it has been completed just five years ago we have been told).

The breakfast was excellent, it put me on weight with the croissants, omelettes and bacon and pancakes they cook for me every day. Cleanliness and maintenance were good, just one problem with an aircon remote control, but quickly settled. Upon the advise of the secretary we made some really beautiful excursions to Phang Nga, Phiphi Island and most beautiful Khao Sok natural reserve where we stayed over one night.

One of the best place we have been, to be recommended.

The best thing about our stay here was that we were actually picked up from the airport as promised, the rest was a classic example of false/misleading advertising and ripped off unsuspecting customers. The package deal had a "No Refund Policy". This should have triggered 'Alarm Bells'. Breakfast - Restaurant opens at 08:00. Had to find someone to cook breakfast, Restaurant chairs and floor covered in bird droppings, stained filthy tablecloths, held to tabletops by rusty paper clips. Ordered omelettes and bacon - no bacon. No salt or pepper, a toilet roll was placed in front of us for serviettes. Balcony surface covered in mould and used tissue paper. Wooden deck chairs rotten - broke when sat apon. Umbrella stand was empty paint container filled with cement. Bags of rubbish left laying around. Piles of empty bottles behind building. Bed sheet stained with who knows what. Shower head faced the wall, could not re-direct flow. Air conditioner outlet fed into shower. Spa had exposed 50cm spike that would have hospitalised someone if sat on. The website photos were obviously 20 years old taken back in the resort's prime. General degradation had set in. We spent the next morning locating suitable accomodation elsewhere. In summary, the owners of this establishment had obviously calculated that a 'package deal' was a great way of sucking people in and the 'No Refund' policy ensured that when the customers found out what it was really like, then there was no avenue of recompense. It is indead a shame that an organisation like this represents Thailand and validates the horror stories that abound regarding 'Australian Suckers' being an easy mark. Please, whatever you do, do not for a moment even consider staying at Prince Edouard Apartments and Resort. Yours in sincerety - An Aussie Sucker.
