I wanted to write a second review of the Holiday Inn, Phuket to share my recent experience.
Again we stayed in the Busakorn wing and other family in the main wing.
My stay was good with all the usual refinements of a good room and breakfast, which my family staying in the main wing was permitted to own us, this was good.
The negatives I have to write about really disappointed me. I had a severe bout of gastro and when contacted the reception around 10 pm Saturday evening was told no doctor was available or on call and they were of no help at all. Given my personal health circumstances this was extremely disappointing to have no help from the staff, especially considering they advertise they hse a clinic and doctor facilities. Peak season I would have thought they would at the very least have someone on call. The other annoying thing was that in the lobby when we requested a taxi, none of the drivers waiting I Netherlands lobby would take the fare and we had to walk the street to find someone to take us an hour to Phuket town to the hospital, in my view the hotel should have told them to beat it if they were picking and choosing fares, notwithstanding we gave the guy who took is a good tip. Finally the hotel should ban smoking around the pool and where people are eating.
As much as I normally enjoy the Holiday Inn, I was disappointed this time.
