“Nice rooms and view”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Nice comfortable room with comfy chairs on balcony with table.hill is problem without scooter but view is great so makes up for it.kitchenette is misleading. A single hotplate wasn't what I expected with no crockery, pans, etc.loved the lighting in room and plenty of sockets.no food available and pool very small but thought some other reviews unfair.stayed at 10+ hotels in Phuket and all have their faults.this has the least

Had excellent stay!! Value for money is very good since I have done an extensive price/services search before hand. The steep hill is indeed something to consider but the compensation you get with the view and relaxation makes you forget. Owners are indeed a very nice and friendly couple that helped us during our entire stay. They gave us advices to visit places and tips what to be careful during out time outside the hotel. In overall a nice stay. If to go back to Phuket I will keep this as option #1

The hotel room is very big and comfy, with great view too.. However, the steep to the hotel is a problem. Hotel is poorly maintained, bathroom with cockroaches and one of the staff is not honest. When we first checked-in, we asked one of the staff if we can pay by credit card, he said no credit card is allowed, only by cash. We told him we do not want to stay there since we did not bring enough of cash. He later changed his statement that they can accept credit card. The worst part is: he even wanted to make a copy of the credit card until we keep questioned him, then he withdrew his actions. The room has no phone, no complimentary drinking water.

The pics on the net look very nice, however the pool was full of bugs, it is very difficult to reach the hotel as it located on an a steep hill, the front door to the room looked like someone had tried to break into the room, the staff of the hotel only speak very simple English and cannot communicate properly without senior/manager support. As the hotel is located on a high hill, you have to hire a motorcycle or taxi to go out. The room was very old also no personal safe and no phone available in the room, if you need drinking water then you have to pay per bottle.

Regarding payment they only accept cash and no credit cards transaction which we only discovered when we went to check out. The manager called the police and organised for a number of taxis to block our exit. We originally booked for 5 days but had enough after 3 and wanted to leave but we were told we still had to pay for the 5 days - wanted to take my passport until payment for 5 days was handed over. Will be complaining to Thai tourist board about this blatant fraud!

If you have other option, this hotel is not recommended you would be better sleeping on the beach!

The pics show on website look very nice, however it is very difficult to reach the hotel as it located in a extremly steep hill, besides, the staff of the hotel only can speak very simple English. He can not communicate properly without his senior/manager support. As the hotel is located in high hill, which does not have convenient support, we have to hire motorcycle or taxi for going out. The room is very old ,eventhough we found a broken hole on the desk~ also no phone available in the room, if you need dringking water then you have to pay per bottle.


Regarding payment method, they only accept payment in cash and no credit cards transaction which I think is not inconvenient for tourist.

If you have other option, this hotel is not recommended.

Hotel is perched up a very steep 200 meter hill. Most taxi drivers refuse to drive up the hill or demand extra to take you to the top. Hotel is poorly maintained. Pool area has a strong smell of sewage. Kitchen in room was poorly equipped with no means of cooking food. Avoid at all cost.

Though the hotel was small and location is a little hard to find, the service and ambience of the hotel makes up for everything else.
I was here with a group of friends for a 4D3N stay and we definitely enjoyed our stay there. The service provided by the owners were very good. The rooms we got were clean and nice. Every morning the room will be neat and tidy without fail. I guess what really made a lasting impression on me and my friends was definitely the kind of hospitality showed towards the guests by the staff. The staff and owners were very sincere in providing you with all kinds of help.
My friends and i rented scooters from them too. Even though one of my friends crashed one of their bikes, they were very nice and did not over charge us for the repair works!
The hotel is run by a french gentlemen and his wife. They treat you like family and do their best to provide the best for you!
Even though the location of the hotel may not be very good (one would have to scale a steep slope to get to the hotel), its not too far away from the beach and also from the night scene of patong. At the foot of the slope, across the street is a 7/11 convenience store, which makes life a lot more convenient for us too.
All in all, we love it and will definitely come back to this hotel the next time we are in phuket again!:)
