Good Value

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Apr 2012
This is a nice place if your on a budget, located right across the road from the beach. We had a room on the 2nd floor and it was clean and a decent size. Bathroom could have done with a stronger mould killer but it wasn't too bad. The day bed in the room near the window was awesome to catch some sun in the privacy of your own room in the airconditioning.

Breakfast selection was good, nice to have your eggs done how every you like. Although dont leave it too late or you will miss out on some hot stuff. The hotel resturant out the front is not too shabby, we ate there on a couple of occassions. We got a pizza to eat in our room and did have to laugh as the 'surpreme' had the toppings seperate on each piece eg: mushrooms on one, olives on another etc. Pricing was reasonable considering, there are cheaper places within walkin distance.

We must give thanks to the pool manager, he was so nice and suggested things for us to do whilst we were there. He even gave us tips like to take the local bus into Phukettown to save on taxi or tuktuks The swim up bar does need to be open later as we found it did close way too early.

Scooter hire was very decent and we were happy with the bike & easy of hire. Handy tip - give it back with a full tank, and you wont have any hassles. We clocked up lots of miles on ours and the tires were nearly bald when we gave it back, but as it had a full tank they didn't say a thing.
Apon check out we didnt get any nasty surprises with extras on the bill either.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay here again

We stayed here for four nughts in August at the end of a backpacking trip in Thailand. The rooms represent good value for money, and although dated, are kept very clean.

This hotel is popular with Russian package tourists..

If you are looking for luxury, go elsewhere, but for this price point, it is about as good as you will find in Phuket.

We had a couple of stays here and also with lots of friends and family with kids.

rooms were mostly good even standard and superior. One of the standards had a bed that a child had obviously pee'd in and the reaction from the staff was the cover the mattress with blanket but not change it (they said management would not allow them to do anything for standard rooms).

Hotel facilities are nice, nice pools, nice location to beach and a good restaurant and massage place.

But anything you ask for out of what you get seems to be an issue. We did book a double room but got twins. This happened to a lots of our friends.
We tried to get my elderly mother closer to the ground floor as she had fallen in her bathroom but we were told "no" (once we complained to management it changed but we had to wait)
Rooms can be noisy as there is a night club next door - rooms 201,301 can we very very noisy.

This place could be good but just be aware of the service (mystery charges for a teaspoon missing - even though pretty obvious room service took it after an in room meal).

Ask for anything special on your booking and you are likely not to get it. They don't even look (so adjoining rooms, double rooms, twin rooms or lower floor - its just luck go the draw at check in).

Good luck - you could have a great stay or you might not - throw the dice :-)

We stayed there in December 2011 and found out that it's good location, clean, staff but there were many places better.

I think it is to much complaing on the staff. They are friendly and do not hasitetes to help. We even choes specialróom number and we got them, thats really sweet. The Hotel is not a luxury hotel but its good price and affordable. The pool area and the garden is really pleasent. The rooms are clean, and we had flowers in it when we arrived.The breakfast is really good and its plenty of food. And the staff, the cleaners and baggage guys is so sweet and always a smile and really frindly.Miss them all! if you want a hotel with good price, nice garden, close to the beach, good breakfast and friendly staff this is the place to stay at!

We booked superior accommodation nearlly 7months before arriving and also sent them several emails in between to make sure that everything was ok as we were travelling with our kids for their first trip to Phuket plus we were also travelling with friends and wanted to have our children and theirs next to us adults so asked for interconnecting rooms to be told that that was fine and all organised. Well that didnt happen, we arrive at this place after having already stayed at a wonderful place for the past 2wks, once we checked in we were taken to the very back of the hotel to these very dingy an unmaintained rooms being told by reception that these were superior rooms at the time but i knew they werent as i had seen on their web page that the superior were alot better, so went back to reception and complained about the state of the rooms after alot of discussions they finally admited that they had over booked the rooms and given them to other people that payed for an upgrade once they arrived we were not happy at all especially when they then said their is nothing we can do but u can go find other accomodation if ur not happy (what a joke on 30th Dec impossble) then after more arguements with them they finally found 2rooms to give us and had to wait till the next day for more and as it was these rooms werent even near each other i had to have my 9&10 yr olds a couple of rooms away from us and the teenagers were in a totally different block from us. I dont normally complain as i have been to Phuket on 6 different occasions and always loved it, but this hotel would have to be the worst staff were sooo rude and unfriendly i dont think i really saw them smile, New Years eve buffet was a joke yes there was plenty of food but music was way to loud and the staff were just standing around talking to each other and it took forever just to try and get their attention to be served drinks, the morning brekky was pretty average to. I cant believe that the only good thing i could say about this place is that it is across the road from the beach and close to shops. This is one place i would never recommend to anyone.

Room tip: Just pick another hotel
