The Old Phuket is perfectly placed as it is 5 minutes from the beach, a good variety of shops, restaurants and bars and it also has 2 entrances so you can go to both ends of town with ease. The hotel is very clean and well maintained and the gardens are lovely. We stayed in the serene wing (newer part) for 11 nights and the room was very modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are well appointed but to be honest if you were not agile the bath would be tricky to get into and out of but there was a good shower so not an issue really. The breakfast was good with plenty of choices of both international and Thai food. If I were to be negative about any aspect of this hotel is that I think it should consider becoming adults only especially in the Serene wing and it pools. Relaxing on our lovely huge balcony overlooking the pool this was often spoilt by screaming kids and sometimes their parents shouting to each other across the balconies, or those who thought it fun to jump in the pool onto complete strangers. Given that there wasn't many children I dread to think what it would be like in the peak periods. Also for those of you who are British be prepared to be very much the minority English speaking customer both in the hotel and in the towns. I would also recommend a 20 minute walk or short tuk tuk journey to Kata beaches as they are beautiful and safer for swimming, the sea at Karon can be a bit precarious at times. Overall it was a good holiday and would recommend the hotel. One word of warning we got ripped off in the Green Chilli restaurant on the main drag in Karon, horrible food, bad service and short changed! Apart from this experience every other restaurant meal was very good and catered for all tastes.
