Great hotel, clean rooms, nice and quiet with a huge swimming pool which was really nice. Perfect hosts Winne and Peter, great food in the hotel and good location - close to shops and walking distance to Surin beach. Highly recommend this for couples or families. The only thing we noticed was that you aren't allowed to flush toilet paper down the toilet, it has to be put in the basket next to the toilet.... however we spoke to other travellers about this and it is quite common and it didn't bother us at all.

The first thing that struck us about the room was its cleanliness! Very lovely.It is spacious and comfortable- feels like a second home. Peter and Winnie are very helpful, kind and friendly. Very obliging and gracious. I'm very indebted to them for their great help.

What a perfect little hotel to get away from the crowds at the end of the day. The hotel surroundings are lush and the deep pool refreshing. A cold drink from the bar and a delicious meal from the kitchen in the open air lounge is the mango on the sticky rice. The rooms and bath were large and decorated in tropic rattan. The hosts were delightful and helpful. The beach is a short walk, a perfect size, with good beach chairs and chair side shopping, food and drinks. Definitely would stay there again.

We were greeted on arrival by Peter, immediately shown to our lovely room overlooking the pool. Pete and Winnie arranged a superb anniversary meal for us, which was really appreciated and delicious. We can honestly say that the food in the hotel was as good as any other we had out and about in the resort and was very fairly priced. Thankyou Winnie for your hospitality and lovely calm and serene manner. We were so relaxed. and felt part of the family.
Rooms lovely and large, super sunsets out of our window. Lovely grounds and swimming pool. All staff did their utmost to have an enjoyable stay. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Thankyou to you all.

I loved this place right from the moment I walked into the lobby and was greeted by the owners Peter and Winnie. What a restful, quiet and easy going hotel. My friends were staying at the much higher end Twin Palms down the road and even they said that next time we should all rent rooms beside each other at the Pen Villa.
I loved my spacious room, the bed and the breakfasts which were offered in the morning. The pool was a great place to hang out and cool off. Both Peter and Winnie were personable and able to figure out whether I wanted to hang out or be alone.
This is an excellent alternative to the very expensive hotels around the corner.

My husband and I travelled to Phuket for the first time in December 2010, we were originally booked into a small guest house on the main road, however having experienced the luxury of the Traders Hotel in Kuala Lumpar I didn't think it was going to work... We were staying in Surin for 10 days and I wanted something a little nicer!

Walking around to do a recce we walked into the Pen Villa and were greeted by Pete - and we knew we'd found the place to stay!

I can't say nice enough things about this place, from the actual accommodation, which is perfect to the wonderful hospitality of Win and Pete, our Christmas and New Year in Thailand were simply a joy!

A short walk to the beach - 5/10 mins depending on how fast you are and the heat! And some of the best street food I've ever tasted is literally just around the corner.

We've been back to Surin since and stayed with friends, but we popped in to say hello to Win and Pete - and I think as long as they are there we always will!

Room Tip: Any room is fantastic!

This place is beautiful! You feel like you're in a real hotel, not a hostel (which we'd stayed in a lot on this trip), beautiful rooms, pool, grounds. Everything is clean and safe, and service is amazing! It is about an EASY and DIRECT 10 minute walk to the beach, but you save a TON being a little farther from the beach, it doesn't have the touristy feel that the hotels on the beach had, and you get to interact with locals, culture and just experience normal life in Phuket, which was a plus for me. All in all a really wonderful, restful experience! Couldn't have asked for more.
