Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything at Nicky’s was really fabulous. The rooms are stylish, fun and unique as well as being spotlessly clean and functional.

The pool is wonderful, and was always empty while we were there, so it felt like an amazing private pool. My baby particularly enjoyed the bubble jets! The pool was always kept really clean and it was well shaded during the day, so it’s perfect for children.

The restaurant is fun and welcoming, with good music, interesting things to look at and very good food. The chicken wings, in particular, were epic! Don’t make the same mistake I did - five is enough, they are big!

But the real standout feature at Nicky’s is the staff. They were all absolutely wonderful and so welcoming for our family. Nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel like friends rather than guests. Thank you all so much!

Absolutely loved staying at Nicky's place. I felt like family there - and Nicky went out of his way to be a fantastic host.
Breakfast each day was outstanding.
The room was somehow very quiet seeing as how the busy streets of Patong were a mere feet away.
Bed was comfortable and bottled water was provided every day.
Would absolutely come back and stay even longer than the week I was there.
Only constructive feedback I would give is they need to be more responsive via their website form/Travelocity. I never got a reply from my two queries.
Other than that, perfect.

We have been coming into the bar for a few years and decided to stay here this year. The owners and all staff are lovely and friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious. Great rainfall shower and separate toilet. Beds are very comfy. Pool is good but could do with some maintenance. Restaurant is always busy every night, food is always good and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend a visit

We stayed five nights here and enjoyed it but it could be a lot better with a little work. The room concept is excellent as is the shower. The pool requires some work which is a shame as it would be excellent if all the tiles and grouting were fixed. The pool area has unfortunately a lot of mozzies at night, luckily we brought smoke coils. There is no seats outside of the room other than some lounges, this is a pain if you want to sit outside the room with a beer. The prices in the bar are definitely not the cheapest in the area, and the breakfast was not great, we only went for it once.

Would we stay here again?, if the problems were addressed maybe but i wouldn't rush back.

This was a great find in Patong, a lovely Harley themed hotel, bar and restaurant, 10 mins walk from the beach. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable with good air con. The pool is lovely, and the small hotel grounds are full of character and well kept. The hotel is attached to a great restaurant and bar with fabulous food and lots of sports to watch.

Great location in Phuket, beds are comfy, rooms are clean & decorated in motorbike / Harley themes. Nicky himself is so friendly and welcoming. Food is also great. The bar is always busy at night yet the rooms we stayed in were lovely and quiet. Easy to fall asleep considering you’re on a busy road. Staff are friendly. Beer is cold! What more can you want? Excellent value

Fabulous little hotel, very spacious and quickie rooms, great pool area. Very clean. Great bar area also serving very good food with good choice.
Close enough to all the attractions and beach and just far enough to remain nice and quiet at night.

Booked 2 nights between the Oct 2-3 for a Deluxe Pool room for me and my girlfriend, based on previous reviews here on tripadvisor and the very reasonable price. Judging by the photos posted here by other reviewers and also the hotel's website, the decor and general look of the hotel was genuine and unique, so I was happy with that and impressed. However what I wasn't impressed was the professionalism, lack of concern and ability to handle things when things don't go right.

As previously mentioned, I booked 2 nights through Agoda 2 nights before arrival and they stated availability for a Deluxe Pool room. Upon arrival they said the Deluxe Pool rooms were booked out and they only had Deluxe rooms currently available (due to the owner who was getting married at the time and he's guests took out those rooms). They said they could only give me a Deluxe room for the night, and ASSURED ME the following night I would get the Deluxe Pool room that I ALREADY PAID FOR. I was willing to compromise and said fine, so long as also I'd get reimbursed for the difference between the costs of a Deluxe Pool room and Deluxe room.

After the first night, the next morning I went to reception and checked to see if my Deluxe Pool room was ready for us to move into. Another man was working at reception and said unfortunately no and I could only stay at my current Deluxe room. No sympathy or lack of concern was shown, just basically 'deal with what you got' attitude. I pretty much got the feeling that I was in a no win situation, and gave my girlfriend a shot at trying to get a favorable outcome, but to no avail as well. After being ASSURED the night before that we'd get what we paid for and now finding out we were LIED to, we were stuck with the same deluxe room.

Another thing I found disappointing was no room service whatsoever existed during our stay. I'd expect at least new towels and the bed getting done as the minimum, but when we came back from a day out to find our room in the same state, I was shocked at the ZERO ROOM SERVICE we received.

The rooms are as they seem in the photos; unique, new, funky with that biker theme. I give credit to the styling of the rooms and the pool is available to use pretty much any time day or night. Breakfast too is commendable, its cooked on the spot and you have choices of continental breakfast. The wifi is free in every room, but its weak and slow and therefore didn't use it that much.

Overall the rooms are nice and it worked out about $AU62 a night, but the quality of service and lack of concern left me very disappointed. If they had showed sincere sympathy and apologized at the beginning for the handling of the booking, and NOT LIED and just said in most likelihood I'd had to stay at the deluxe room and refund the difference on the spot, I would have enjoyed my stay a whole lot better and not have to worry about this whole mess. Instead they just made things harder, and I ended up staying the rest of my trip at a hotel not too far away (Deevana Spa & Resort) which was just a few dollars extra but was miles better in quality of service, better room and facilities. I firmly believe that as a guest you're not just paying for the room, but an overall package and while I was impressed with Nicky's Handlebar's rooms, the service was simply unacceptable.
WILL NOT STAY HERE AGAIN.

I booked this hotel based on the reviews on trip advisor and we ended up staying longer as we didn't want to leave.. Firstly don't let the name of the hotel put you off if you're not a biker. We don't know the first thing about them.

We're on a 12 month trip around the world and we just hit our 6th destination.. And by far this is the most amazing hotel we've stayed in. I don't understand how its so cheap (please don't put the price up though as we're booking again in a few months to visit friends) .

The rooms and the entire hotel is themed with bikes and bikers merchandise and we entered the room saying WOW!
The beds are so soft, the air con is so powerful, each room has its own mega fast wifi and..... wait for it.... the shower.... the rain shower.... i didn't want to stop showering. The rooms and grounds are impeccably clean and the pool is HUGE!

We had one tiny little problem when we arrived and that was that the aircon in our room didn't work. We just told reception and we were moved to an upgraded room within seconds. No problem.

The staff are so friendly and are more than happy to help with anything that you need to know.

The bikes in the reception area are on another level and they capture the attention of the people walking past the hotel. At night its all guarded by a security guard that salutes you when you leave and come back.

The restaurant/ bar is facing the main road but the rooms are at the back of the hotel. You can't here any noise where the rooms are and you can't hear the traffic from the main roads.

Thank you for an amazing time and we'll be back later on in the year. We really didn't want to leave! :)

I was fascinated by the decor of the motel and the rating in tripadvisor that made me Wanted to book this place to stay for a nite. The room isn't big but very CLEAN and you get SUPER clean big towels for beach and bath. Hair dryer is provided as well and bed is also very comforting. The pool may look small BUT good enough for friends gather around for beers and have fun. You will be surprised that their pool and jacuzzi are open round the clock however noise to be keep to the minimum.Great about this which other hotels normally closed their pool around six or seven o'clock. Nicky bar served breakfast by individual set. I will recommend this place to stay although is a bit far from beach. Lots of seafood stalls and massage palours along the road and walking distance to JUNGCEYLON is about 10-15 mins walk.

Is the hotel guest friendly or do they charge a joiner fee? Regards
Answer from Damian B

Very friendly... you can walk in off the street and enjoy a cold beer and order food... often the owner (Nicky) is there and is a absolute Gem of a person.
Answer from Damian B
Bondi, Australia29 contributions
The ground floor rooms are opposite the pool with the 1st floor having a balcony... windows are tinted heavily for privacy... you’ll find you have as much privacy as you want as most stay in rooms or head out... the entrance to the rooms is a large sliding door which allows plenty of natural light during the day.

Yes the rooms are air conditioned.
