“Amazing Place, Close to Everything”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Arrived around 8 o clock at night with a pre booked taxi from Ross, a bit expensive for the ride but for first timers in Phuket 700 baht was next to nothing. A Thai guy waited outside the arrival gate with our names on a piece of paper. Arrived at the guesthouse to be greeted by Ross. Room was large and clean with a balcony looking over Soi Banzan. I must quote THE BEST SHOWER IN PHUKET. Close to everything, Bangla Road is a 5 mins walk and another 5 to the beach. If you want to book any trips, taxis, tickets go to Phuket travel which is about 7 doors down and there is an English guy working there and will give great prices.

Another great review.Only criticism about the cost of a taxi is deliberate by us.You can get a taxi from the very end of the airport for perhaps 600 baht but we charge 700 baht and have a driver meet and greet and have a clean,safe taxi that comes direct to the guesthouse. Some of those others will take a customer all around the place or try to entice to try another hotel from which they receive a commission..

First of all I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to Ross and all his friends for all there help in Phuket. We stayed here for a few nights when we first arrived in Phuket as we got off the mini bus they shouted us over and obviously been English was a mega bonus for us we stayed in the backpackers room for 600 baht and although there was no window the room was big and clean and the shower and wifi all worked fine. Ross and his friends helped us navigate to book simon cabaret and fantsea and transfer to phi phi at good price from Phuket travel on the same road by Andrew. They also got us a scooter for a good price which is a must if you want to see phuket and its better northern beaches after a stint in phi phi and lanta we came back here for 5 nights again got a better room with window and balcony for 700 baht because we loved patong. The location is behind the shopping centre where the lonely planet book tells you to go for a cheap room. Quite far from stuff but no problem with scooter. Fantastic stay the girls are fab too very helpful thank you so much see you soon Ross :D

I stayed at Presley guest house for 4 months from September to December 2012. Anne and Ross are very welcoming and great hosts. The rooms are large and very clean. Showers are truly fantastic.There are plenty of places to eat and get a cool beverage within a 5 minute walk or there is a great in house restaurant for good reasonably priced food. I recommend Presley and would have no concerns staying there again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony.

I stayed at the Presley Guesthouse on 21 and 22 July 2012. The rooms are very clean and spacious, large beds and nice hot showers. For Aussies you get the Australia Channel on your TV. So if you are an AFL fan you get all the weekends games. Your hosts Ross and Ann pride themselves on providing quality rooms at a very reasonable price. Their Thai staff are very friendly and efficient.

On the weekend we stayed there was another group of Aussies staying, and we had a great afternoon on the Sunday, out the front, having a few beers and telling jokes (how cheap is the beer). Ross was only too happy to join in on the fun.

If you take a left turn from the front of the guesthouse, then do either a right or left turn at the T intersection, you will find an array of street side restaurants where the flavours change every 100 metres. Just ask Ross or Ann and they will point you in the right direction. In the other direction you have the big market and the Jung Ceylon shopping centre. Just having a look in the market at the different fruit and veg that you don't see in Australia is worthwhile.

By the way, right next door you can get an excellent Thai massage for around $10AUD.

I highly recommend the Presley Guesthouse.

Room Tip: Back rooms are a little quieter.

I am so happy that I stayed at M&K Guesthouse (now Presley Guesthouse and Elvis Bar) while in Patong Beach. Upon arrival, I was given a free upgrade from a Superior Double Room to a Deluxe Double Room for my entire stay. Every day, the housekeepers changed the bed linens and give me two fresh clean towels. Breakfast is served all day long and it is so delicious - I never ate breakfast anywhere else. Although it is not located right on the beach (15 - 20 minute walk), it is only a 5 minute walk to the shopping mall and is right next door to a pharmacy, a 24 hour family mart (like a gas station in the United States), several restaurants and bars, an ATM, and laundry facility. Ross, "MiMi," and the other lady who worked the bar and front desk (I forgot her name) were extremely hospitable and welcoming - they are a great staff. Overall, it was a great quiet place to retreat to after a long day and night on the town. If I ever return to Patong Beach, I will stay there again.

My partner and I recently stayed at the guesthouse (now known as Presley guesthouse) and had a wonderful time. Nothing was too much trouble for the new owners Anne and Ross. Our room was clean and comfortable. We often took advantage of their "all day breakfast" which was both delicious and filling. We will definately stay there again on our next visit
