“A pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

After hearing nothing but bad things about Phuket, we were expecting a dump but arrived to a lovely place!
The staff are really friendly and are keen to help, very accommodating. The room we stayed in was wonderful, on the bottom floor and next to the pool so I could walk out to the pool which was really nice. I can't stress how clean the room was, the towels and sheets squeaked because they were so clean! The air con was powerful, which was a relief.
The pool was lovely, didnt visit the spa or fitness centre.
The restaurant is a bit expensive (compared to food in the town) but that is expected, although the Massaman and Green curry was the best I had in Thailand, and I had plenty! The breakfast is really good as well, so don't hesitate to opt for the breakfast for one because it was very nice and filling.
It's a 10 minute walk from the beach and the strip etc and 2 min walk from local shops and bike rental.
A great stay in general.

Room Tip: 211, 212, 213 and 214 are the best basic rooms (exit to the pool, bottom floor)

This year I stayed at Sun Hill Hotel at Patong Beach during all month of March again. Based on the positive experience I had at this hotel last year in March, I had no doubt in selection of hotel this year. Once again the Sun Hill staff, management and the hotel itself surpassed my expectations of a hotel in this price range. Everything about my stay was perfect and Sun Hill Hotel truly represents great value for money, family like atmosphere and quality that surpasses any other Phuket hotel in this category. I would recommend this hotel to anybody in a heartbeat and without a doubt return as a guest soon again.

Really nice hotel, nice rooms and really clean. A little far away from Bangala road, not close enough to walk but 5 minutes by motorbike taxi.Would definitely stay here again. Simple breakfast but that was fine. Really enjoyed my stay here.

No room in safe but they have a safety deposit at reception

Excellent hotel, all the staff were very friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them. The food and service were excellent also. The rooms were very clean, I will definitely be staying there again :-)

Average service, older woman in reception was very polite but younger service people not that good, nice quite rooms, location is good if you don't like to hear traffic noises all the time. Breakfast was below average and service was awful bacon was overburned and even water was not included. Water in rooms was 40 baht/bottle, in all other hotels we were it was free of charge. All in all we could stay here again.

When we arrived at the hotel, reception was luke warm. The lady made sure we paid the same amount as we booked, however when prompted for further information about getting around Phuket, etcetera, she wasn't very helpful.

Maybe after staying at such wonderful hotels before, which were the same price if not cheaper, we were spoiled, but the rooms felt like we were staying at a Motel 8. The bathroom's soap and shower dispensers WERENT EVEN IN THE SHOWER! Furthermore, though we made a booking that was supposed to include breakfast they not only didn't start serving until about 9, which meant we had to come back, but on return they informed us that breakfast was not included and we would have to pay extra!

The hotel is not too far from everything but I HATED walking up and down that stupid hill since they also didn't have scooters available for us to rent though they said they would when we checked in.

Overall I would NOT recommend this place as I am sure you can find a much better hotel in a nicer location in Patong for the same price.

Extremely disappointed!
