Outdoor Inn & Restaurant
Ranked #19 of 67 Kata Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We were traveling to Phuket on a budget, and this hotel's reviews stood out. It's walking distance to Kata beach, and the area is relatively quieter than other streets. We were lucky to get a room that looked out towards the hills, which was nice. Impressed with the rooms - spacious, with a big flat-screen tv, decent bathroom and shower, and a balcony. There's no elevator, so you may want to request a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor if walking up flights of stairs is an issue.

Staff wasn't all that helpful when it came to advice, and we had to make do with finding our own tours and day trips by talking to tour agents on the road. Also, on our first day there was an issue with the wi-fi and a few days later there was an issue with the water. Both were fixed after a few hours, but what I'm trying to say is that problems will probably occur while you're there. Still, it's a pretty good place for the amount you pay.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms look out to the hills, so you get a nicer view.

Average place to stay in Phuket. On the plus side, room was clean, some staff helpful. Concerns were noise at night, quite distracting. TV movie channel went out in use and promises to fix were not done. Sink dripped and was not fixed after referral. Would pay more stay somewhere else. Path to the beach was gross.

Fair hotel, nothing special but ok! Rooms are quite spatious, location is not quite it the center but walking you are there in 10 minutes. Taxi driver will maybe have some hard time finding a hotel so bring a detailed map! The bathroom need an improvement. The shower was old and rusty!

Stayed 3 nights, good location 5 min walk to the beach, some good places to eat near by - didnt eat in hotel restaurant. Local night market 3-4 min walk - some great bargains and cheap food. Beds are comfy, air con good, hot showers and rooms are quiet minimal noise from outside. Free wifi - good connection. Overall a great stay.

This is one of the many "normal" inns available in the area.
I was assigned to the "B" building and the rooms there are clean and seem to be quite new.
Overall, we paid a fair price but I believe there may be cheaper alternatives around... as this was my first time in the area, I cannot really compare this place to others but seems a safe choice if you want clean, reasonable big rooms in good conditions.
Note: even if it isn't too noisy, music from the pub area does get all the way to the hotel and if you are "sound sensitive" as I am, it may be an issue if you want to get some sleep.

I stayed here for 3 nights while in Kata beach for 530 baht/night in October 2012. Phuket can be very pricey, so this price for a large superior room, close to the beach is very good. (sawadee.com)

The first thing I noticed about the room was the large windows opening on to a long balcony. It makes the room bright and open. They contain a large bed, desk with chairs, air con, a 28 " TV, mini bar, wardrobe, phone, safe and bathroom.

The air con was powerful and it felt great to come back to after the heat I experienced in Phuket. It is close to the market, 7-eleven, many massage shops, bars and clubs and the beach.

The staff I saw were great and offered advise on what to do in the area. The onsite restaurant seemed fine, I only had breakfast there once but there is a wide menu for lunch and dinner. They have another outdoor restaurant further down the road, around 20 mins walk way.

Overall, my stay was enjoyable. If staying in Kata - I would recommend as it has everything one needs, is close to amenities and is good value for money.
