“A great stay”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

I am checking out tomorrow after a pleasant six night stay. My room has a small kitchen which I think was a studio room. Had booked a deluxe room, so I was lucky also I had a balcony overlooking the street, not a problem in fact my room was above reception which gave me very strong free wifi. Managed the walk into town and back many times never having to use a tuk tuk. There is life along the street the hotel is situated in which was nice for a change in the evenings. I was happy they served breakfast from 8am as the high season has just started. Breakfast was included in my package and I had a choice of 6 set breakfast. Not a prob as I had eggs and bacon every day, well presented with toast and fresh fruit. I thought it was a very good price to pay, they could charge more but thankfully they don't.

Room Tip: The location was NOT a problem for me. There is a pool which I did not use.

I chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor recommendations. This is an excellent hotel, and represents good value for money. A 15 minute walk to the buzz of Patong, but far enough away to get rest, and visit the rest of the island. Patong deserves its reputation as a party place, but for people wanting comfort, cleanliness and beauty - travel around the island. This hotel is well situated so that you aren't stuck in Patong. Good standard of accommodation, with appealing decor and impressive standards of cleanliness throughout. Reception is very helpful and genuine. Taxis arranged through the hotel are cheaper (Phuket is significantly more expensive than the rest of Thailand). Some advice: -Slightly larger portions for breakfast would be nice, especially for the fruit. - The entrance steps are VERY slippery when it rains! Maybe some non-slip mats? Thank you for a great stay :)

Room Tip: Most of the rooms do not have views, but some may have.

I rented a car for our stay in Phuket and even as a first timer driving in Phuket, without any GPS, i can vouch that it's not really that hard to locate this hotel as the roads around the island are basically manoeuvrable as it goes along either the beach side or the hill side, and this hotel is located in the former.Definitely a good choice of accommodation in Phuket

Pros:
i) Ample parking space
ii)Spacious room
iii)Clean
iv)Friendly staffs
v) Good wifi
vi) quiet location but stone's throw away from Patong beach
vii)have bike rentals
viii)Affordable rate
ix) Located near Tesco store and many eateries

Cons:
i) No breakfast buffet but limited option of either cereal or egg and bacon-coffee and tea

I found it in a very convenient locations, since is only 10-15 walking far from Patong Beach main avenue, but avoids all the noise of the night life. Also, the hotel seems to be new, and the swimming pool was perfect for refreshing.
Improvements to be done: The safety box is located in the reception, so every time you want to take off or put inside a thing, you have to go there. Also, they charge you for using a PC located in the reception, is not expensive, but in most hotel this service is free. Finally, the breakfast is available from 9am, which is quite late if you want to go for a tour that departs early in the morning.

I stayed here after 3 nights and a dump with very poor atmosphere created by the owner and his drunk mates and was pleasantly surprised with this hotel.
Perfect rooms, well maintained hotel throughout and the staff were all of excellent quality. I hope the boss pays them well because they are what makes this a great hotel. I would have tipped enormously but funds did not permit on this trip.
Easy to get to location with a pleasant leafy district outlook a little away from the really busy areas and within walking distance of everything locally.
Do not hesitate and go and book - you'll be glad you did like I was for staying
stayed there.
Also, the rates were very reasonable, a bargain actually! This review is from me! a real traveller wanting to put it out there as it is.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Cosy room with nice wood furniture. Very comfortable bed and pillows! It's definitely value for money. The distance to beach/shopping is bit far. But there is the taxi motorbike available outside the hotel so it still alright. It is good for those who like it quiet. The housekeeper done a good job of keeping the room clean and towels which was made into a little elephant was so cute. The swimming pool is rather small. It will be good if the hotel can provide bedroom slippers.

It is a nice place, specially for those who don´t want to be in the middle of the noisy party area. It is 15 minutes walk from the beach and 10 minutes from the main reataurantes and shopping places. The rooms are clean and confortable. The only two issues we had were: 1). the safes are not in the room, the are in the reception. 2). Breakfast starts at 9am. If you want it earlier you have to let them know. We were there at 9am the first morning and the person in carge want there yet, si we hade breakfast aroung 9:30...
