Yes, it is the high season but this hotel is overpriced compared to others we have stayed in. We stayed for 2 weeks in 2 rooms as we have a 2 young teenagers.
There is a very noisy large construction across the road from both our rooms which starts at 7:30am and goes until after 9:30pm. It is after 10pm tonight and they are still welding,hammering and shouting. You can forget about any sleep ins if your room is adjacent to the street. It would have been common courtesy for them to have mentioned it when we were booking or at least offered a quieter room. It doesn't look like it will finish for at least another month but there is a vacant lot just behind it that they will soon develop.
On 3 days we did not have any running water for at least 30 min and on one day this lasted from 4:30pm until after 11pm. This is not good when you are in the middle of a shower with shampoo still in your hair. We were told this was a general problem with the water supply in all of Phuket but did not hear about it or encounter it anywhere else.
The air-conditioning is good. The rooms are a good size. The pool is clean but not enjoyable because of the noise from across the road.
The cleanliness is not great. The shower floor was just rinsed down and still had soap scum on it and hairs on the drain when we moved in. The stainless steel bin had stains all around the outside and on the lid that we're not permanent. The top of the kettle and headboard were dusty and the verandah outside was really dusty from all the construction work. However, the room was swept and mopped daily and the towels replaced.
The breakfast was average, pretty well the same everyday but adequate.
The staff were nice but not helpful with travel advice. Most did not have good English. When we asked one lady how to get to Kata noi beach as we wanted a bit of a change, she told us we could walk. It is actually about 2 km away and involves going up a steep hill so this is not a good option for most people.
Very basic average hotel (not resort). Would not stay here again.
