Kelly's is a great place for a cheap getaway.
Off the beach and away from the craziness , Kelly's is a quieter hotel only a few minutes walk from Jungcelon.
The staff understand english well and the rooms are clean and serviced daily.
The pool is small but still does the job.

Room Tip: The penthouses are fantastic and all other rooms are great too

Hi everyone

I guess there is not much to add to everyone’s comments on Kelly it really is as good as everyone is saying, i stayed there for a 2nd time in 2 years in Feb for 18 nights in a pool room, Dan and Tan is wonderful hosts, their staff is great and always willing to assist where they can (even got me KFC) even though language could be a bit of a problem :). The nice thing about Kelly and their staff - you can choose if you want to have a good chat or if you just want to chill at the pool or even your room, you can sleep late without interference. Dan makes a mean breakfast - doesn’t matter what time it is he sure can make you something to bite on.

Everything, from shopping mall/massage/bars is easy to find and it would be a short max 10min walk to the beach. If you not keen on walking right across Kelly is a very nice gentleman, not sure if he is really a motorbike taxi driver but he charged me 50 Baht to the beach where everyone else is 100+ Baht. If you had a night on town i would suggest maybe to get a tuk tuk to get back to Kelly as some parts of the road could dangerous to walk as there is a bit of traffic. Please make sure you know where you stay - get a card from Dan with directions and you will not have any problems. If you are a family and take a tuk tuk do not pay more than 200 Baht - just walk a bit further and someone will help you.

Dan/Tan i really hope you guys will be there next year when i get back - if you are be sure i will come stay with you again - no ways the big hotels will see me. Give my regards to your staff and the kids.

If anyone like to have some more feedback your welcome to drop me a line.
Jacques

Room Tip: Pool room is nice as you open your sliding door and your in the pool :)

Thanks for your great review, you’re my type of guest, you understand us and what Kelly’s is all about.
When I have good people I don't mind doing the hard yards and giving my knowledge and time for free, and you appreciated that, see you again next time.

I have just returned from a 5 day stay at Kelly's Hotel and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, to those that are looking for a comfortable and friendly place to stay, whilst offering great value for money. Dan is quite a character and only to happy to share his knowledge of Thailand and Phuket itself. Tan is equally accommodating and her understanding of Thai is invaluable. The Hotel itself is clean and comfortable, with a family feel about it and everything that you are likely to need is on hand. We stayed in room 502, which is one of their junior suites and appreciated the privacy and extra space it affords, well worth the extra money. In summary, Kelly's does everything it says on the tin and I would imagine that you would be hard-pressed to find a better all-round establishment in Patong Beach, Phuket. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Room 502 was excellent!

I spent 5 nights here 2 weeks ago. The location is excellent. Dan was great to talk to, a wealth of information. The hotel itself is very reasonably priced and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I hope Kellys will still be there next March, I will definitely stay again

We went for our honeymoon trip to phuket on december 2011. I did some research on tripadvisor somewhere in september and found good reviews and also some bad . Was skeptical till last but somehow thought lets take a chance and I called Dan/tan and they reserved 4th floor sea face room for us.

Well , honestly , kelly is good if you consider 'price/good room/long stay'. All of my colleagues were suprised to hear within the budget I had my tour to phuket.

i must say this hotel is good , friendly and yes the Dan is very helpfull in recomending and advising trips in phuket. We even booked phuket fasea show through them. Over all my wife also enjoyed. So thumbs up...surely go next time when in phuket....Cheers Dan (wishes from Indian Couple Mr Nayak :) )

Room Tip: Take sea facing rooms

Thanks for the review, I remember you well, nice couple, you were a bit light on the box ticking arena, I don’t think people really understand what the boxes are about, and the variation in opinions between the writing and the box ticking can vary wildly, be good if people got it right.
The main driving force behind every hotel is profit, without it you don’t have a great hotel, and Kelly’s manages to achieve all this regardless of the zero profit.
This is our lively hood everyone plays with on these reviews, we have taken a good look at the rates and we’re definitely far too cheap, and for those that don’t think so make sure you enclose a profit and loss sheet on the value of a hotel room, keeping in mind 98% in Phuket go broke in the first year...
Thank you very much for your kind written review please be a bit kinder with the boxes next time, Thanks Dan.
