Reviewed 24 July 2014

Owner Glenn and reception staffs are very friendly. Had wonderful time here. In Patong area, Nanai Road is an excellent location to stay. Close to everything but still a quiet area.

Cheap motorbike rental is just next door, tons of affordable eating places are nearby. Jungceylon mall and Bangla road nightlife is within 10 minutes walk. Patong beach is 15 minutes walk, you call it far or near that is up to you. I always enjoyed the walk along the road.

This hotel has no elevator. So if you plan to carry big luggage which could be heavy for you to carry on higher floor, then better request for lower floor rooms while making the reservation. Rooms are okay but toilets could be little better.

Overall it is a good place to stay for a week or even for a month. You get what you are paying for, so don't expect a boutique hotel. It is a nice friendly place suitable for longer stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the right hand side annexe building has better position.

I am writing this review a little late as I originally wrote one from the airport as my stay had been so enjoyable, but it appears did not go through. This was my 5th or 6th stay and as always I had a great time, the rooms are large, kept extremely clean and everything you need is close to hand. The owner Glenn is a mine of local information and is always willing to help, they can provide tours and transport and if he does not know something he will endevour to find out for you. I consider this as my home from home and do not have any reservations recommending the property to anyone who wants quality accomadation at a reasonable price and i will be back.

Room Tip: The hotel has two buildings the rooms to the side at the rear are very quiet if you prefer not to be...

Wow, what a place to stay!
We had a great time staying here (10 days in total).
The location was a 15min walk to Patong Beach and night life. We were nestled near the hills with plenty of restaurants, taxi services and massage facilities available. We walked everywhere, although at times we were tempted to take a tuk tuk.
The rooms had a massive king size bed, bar fridge, desk, wardrobe and a large ensuite (cleaned daily). Oh not to mention the cold airconditioner (which was a necessary item to have in our room - humidity some days reached 88%!). The pool is not overally big but certainly big enough for a cool down.
Given a list of tours and places to see, Glenn (hotel manager) arranged the necessary taxi's, and tours to make our holiday memorable. Nothing was too hard.
Please don't think this is a 5 star hotel but a 3.5 star. I wouldn't have it any other way. My expectations were a clean room, clean bathroom, an airconditioner and no cockroaches. I was not disappointed.
Would I visit again, absolutely!!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side tend to get more sun and weather (block out curtains work very well)

Its my first trip to Phuket and the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The experience and the friendliness is of a five star hotel's quality and makes one feel like at home. If there are any enquiries needed, he is willing to help out within his abilities. On top of that, the room is pretty clean and pretty big, despite there is 4 people squeezing in a queen size bed room, plus 2 extra beds.
Overall, it was a great experience (even though it is a little far from the night life for this lazy pig here) and i would recommand anyone to stay there.

I stayed here with my wife for 9 nights in June. Although we usually stay in 4/5 star luxury hotels, we had seen such good reviews on this place and can say we were definitely not let down. The guesthouse would give any luxury hotel a run for their money. The rooms were amazing clean AND cleaned daily. Glenn the owner couldn't do enough for you and was always on hand if we needed any help or advise. The rooms were lovely and spacious with great air conditioning. It had a real family feel to it was like home from home. It is situated in the centre of things, close enough to all the hot spots like Bangla Road but also far enough away that you could have some peace and quiet. Glenn lives on site with his young family, twin boys who are the cutest boys I have ever seen. He has a laundry service that is second to none and arranged our taxi pick up to and from the airport. Thank you Glenn for a fabulous stay, we are looking forward to coming out again in 2016 when we will be bringing friends along to experience your hospitality. Steve from UK

Room Tip: Just ask Glenn he will make sure you get the best room
