Well what can I say - we stayed here for 9 nights and on many a day we were the only guests, it was like we were millionaires in our own hotel!
We stayed in the Royal Penthouse Suite and it was fantastic value for money. The room is enormous with 2 balconies, 1 of the balconies has a sea view and the other has a view over the hills of Patong. The location of the hotel is at the top of a hill but you can walk to Jungceylon shopping mall within 10 minutes easy strolling, Bangla Road and the beach are within 15 minutes walking. I do recommend getting a tuk tuk back at night for 200 baht because the small hill can be tiring after a few beers!. We were the only guests around the pool on most of our days and we just stayed there! The pool is great and so refreshing in heat of Patong.
The staff were really friendly and during our stay we felt like a part of their family. So much so that they were offering us their food and Dan was discussing everything with us! Nothing was too much trouble and Dan would happily cook us food whenever we asked even offering us his mussels! The Kelly's breakfast is awesome and sets you up a treat for the day ahead.
The ONLY problem we had was that we blocked the toilet which was sorted out immediately but with Dans advice of flushing halfway through. Sorted!
Dan is a proper host and at times he felt like my Dad, his advice was duly taken and also some ignored (coconut oil). His stories will be remembered forever. Tan his wife is a lovely lady and together you gain a real "guest experience" unlike many hotels where you are only a room number.
The taxi pick up and drop off was excellent and well worth booking through the hotel no hassles and no scams!
If we ever return to Patong we will undoubtedly stop at Kelly's again. Thank you to Dan, Tan and family for a perfect stay. (Dan - I hope you enjoy your bracelet and it makes you laugh as much as we did with you through our stay) - Claire says " have lots of massages, go first class and remember you can't take it with you. xx
