My wife,17 year old son,and I stayed here for 8 nights in early August.Great time to go,quiet and not too hot,30ish every day.
Really nice and clean,staff wonderful (hi to Lin who cleaned our room 3104 each day),great pool.Our room was a pool access room in the Serene Wing with a great view of the mountains.
Really good shopping strip at the beach entrance,local restauranteurs treat customers as friends.15 minutes to Patong costs 400 Baht which is about $12 Australian.We got a good tip early,spend the days near the pool and hit the markets and bars in Patong at night.The little bars behind the Otop market are great fun,the barmaids play games with the kids.And blokes should not miss the Boxing at Bangladesh Stadium.
We'll be back and we'll stay here again.

Stayed at The Old Phuket for a week with my wife. Staff was friendly, food was great, accommodation was excellent and everything was clean and neat.

Lots of shops and restaurants just down the road and beach is a min walk away.

Can highly recommend to anyone.

I had a fantastic stay in Karon and this was due in part to The Old Phuket Hotel. The room was nicely laid out and very clean. I had a balcony room which had lovely views of the gardens and mountains. The staff were always helpful and courteous and breakfast was fresh and tasty. the beach was about 150 metres away and the town centre was about an 8 minute walk. You could always catch a taxi, tuk tuk or motorbike very cheaply or even hire a motorbike. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking at staying in Karon-Phuket.

We booked this through one of those Secret Escapes and did not expect a lot as it was great value. We were amazed when we arrived by the room, the food, the staff, the swimming pool was lovely and meant I could get some much needed exercise.
The Serene Wing is best in terms of space and access to the pool. Glad we did not pay extra to go pool side as then we could not have hung out on our balcony.
Great row of restaurants near by.
Shame about the monsoon tides on the nearby beach but who cares when you have a monster pool to dip in.
Overall would LOVE to go back again.

Room Tip: Serene Wing every time

Stayed in the Serene Wing in a Deluxe Pool View room for 8 nights. Really enjoyed our holiday in Phuket and the hotel itself is in a great location. It is removed enough from the main road to feel like you're in a bit of a sanctuary however shops and restaurants are still very easily accessible. I especially enjoyed the adjoining strip of shops at the beach side entrance to the hotel. Very handy! Restaurants, massages and general items you might need are all there. There is even a pharmacy! There is also a market type shopping centre a couple of hundred metres down the road.

The room itself was spacious and bright. We had a wonderful view of the pool and had the morning sun on our balcony. One thing I would say though, is the rooms whilst clean, parts were quite worn and stained. This is to be expected from a hotel that has such high occupancy. The pool was fantastic - we were really lucky to have sunny weather and minimal rain so after a day of relaxing in the sun on the sun loungers, dips in the pool to cool down we're absolute bliss. The pool bar was also great.

The staff were wonderful from front office and restaurant staff to housekeeping and maintenance. Everyone was really friendly and helpful.

We had breakfast at the hotel every morning and found it to be more than substantial. We filled up on delicious fresh fruits, eggs cooked however you like, toast, pastries, juice, tea, coffee and a selection of hot dishes that cater for both east and western taste buds.

The hotel also offers a free shuttle to the big mall in Patong as well as a shuttle to the weekend market. This does however fill up quickly and you need to book. The activities/tour desk by the breakfast restaurant is well informed and the lady there is extremely helpful and friendly.

Overall, The Old Phuket is a very good hotel and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!
