“Best Holiday - Great Hotel Choice”
Reviewed 22 April 2011

My third trip back to Phuket and the first for my partner was made more special by the staff and management with their great welcome, smiles all round and to top it off a nice upgrade to a penthouse room.

Having chosen the hotel based on the short distance from Patong Beach (15min walk), it was nice to return to the quiet and leave the hussel and bussel behind.

We had read the reviews prior to booking and will say that in most cases the hotels in Patong/Kalim do look onto power-lines prior to looking onto the beach, I counted only three hotels that have absolute beach frontage. The room was clean and yes the air-conditioner did take a while to kick in especially on the very hot and humid days, but how many times do you stay in your room during the day when there is so many things to experience in Phuket!

Working in the same industry for some 12 years I believe it is important the share good comments when you have an great service.

Our trip was made all the better for choosing this hotel and we both send a big thank you to the staff and management of the Orchid Hotel and Spa from your friends from 503. A big shout out to the dog 'Coconut' (we named him) who just hung out at the hotel and provided many funny moments :)

We did not know where to go since it was our first time to visit Phuket. We decided to start off in Patong and we wanted a budget room for our first two days to escape to until we figured out what to do. We were VERY pleased with our choice. We got the budget room and it was clean with a large bed and a balcony. We looked at the other rooms and they were quite spacious as well. We were happy with the location. It is directly across the street from the beach and the toot toots are all outside so you can just grab one and take it into town, or rent a scooter directly from the hotel for a cheap price. The breakfast was nice and the staff friendly. The have a spa, which we did not use as well as a pool. It is not a luxury hotel, rather it is exactly what it claims to be and perfect for what we needed.

The hotel is very close to the beach!!! Just cross the road, you will find a nice peaceful beach!!! Friendly staff!!! Rooms are simple with good air conditioning and lighting. Lovely sit out view. One side you can see the sea and on other side the mountains!!! The pubs and restaurants are half a Kilometer far. Those who love to have walk, i would strongly recommend this place. For those who are really lazy and wish to have everything in the world right next to their door steps, I would say "No". Lot of people rent bikes, they will enjoy this place (b'cos not crowded). The hotel provides bikes for rent. There is a travel agent in lobby who provided nice trip packages. In short, "Nice place to stay".

We stayed in the Orchid Hotel for 7 nights, and it was a great base for our first experience of Phuket and the surrounding area. The room was very comfortable, with excellent airconditioning, which is a necessity in the warm and humid weather. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the beer ice cold, and the breakfasts brilliant with bacon and eggs, and fresh fruit every morning. At the affordable rates I really think this is a good value hotel, and I would definitely consider staying here again.

My partner & i stayed here just for one night ,before we flew on to Bangkok ,& it certainly was enough ,its was just a stop over so we could be at the airport early the next morning .
The location was in a quiet part of Phuket ,which was fine ,because we had a tuk- tuk in to Patong where all the restaurants & bars are & every thing happens .
The room was just not up to scratch ,It smelt musty ,the room was dirty ,bedding was ok ,even though it was a four poster it was very dated .
The bathroom was something else The shower was from the arc .No control for the water temperature ,just a lever to turn it on or off .The inside of the shower cubical was falling apart & very tired. The breakfast was not up too much either .

BAD
the condition of this hotel is old and poorly maintained. the room was dusty and dirty. bed sheets, towels, couch etc are old and stained. the toilet smells and there was grime all over the tiles. the lock for the balcony did not work. hotel is located quite far from patong night life area, approximately 20 mins walk. the beach front is not swim-able due to rocks and mud. this is definitely not a 3 stars hotel as rated. it is more like a hostel/motel.

GOOD
extremely friendly and helpful staffs. breakfast was simple and good. the in house tour counter was excellent. aircond and hot water were functioning well. reasonably priced and suitable for those on a budget staying for long periods.
