Arrived on Rugby tour in October - Expected for the money we were paying a pretty poor hotel - instead got very clean and decent rooms, a pool on the top and good service.

It's approximately a 10 minute walk to the main street. The guy that owns Hemingways also owns a few other bars in Phuket so gave us good drinks prices.

I am here just now. Myself and my 12 year old son arrived this morning after a 22 hour journey EDI-AUH-BKK-HKT. When we got got to the hotel we were 2 hours too early for check in. But that was no problem at all. The lady (didn't get her name) at the reception gave us a choice of rooms and said they would have it ready within 30 minutes and to go so in the restaurant and have a cocktail whilst we wait. We on my had to wait 15 minutes and the room was ready for us. Whilst we waited my son had ice cream and I had a Mai Tai. The staff could not have been more helpful or polite. When we got to our room we were not disappointed. Very nice room with a little balcony and the most fantastic shower. My 12 year old absolutely loved it and he is a little travel critic. After we had spent some time out at the beach, we then came back and went up to the rooftop pool as we were sleepy from our journey. The sun loungers are incredibly comfortable and the service from the bar is great. The girl on the bar brought my son's chocolate shake over to him in the pool so he could drink it there (plastic glass). Throughout, it has been service with a smile.

I booked this hotel after reading good review in several hotel booking engines. Thumbs up for cleanliness of room and location.

I booked the deluxe and twin rooms. Found both rooms of good sizes except bathroom is a bit too small for my liking. The arrangement of the bathroom in certain rooms are not so good as the bathroom's door opening is at a "strange" angle. Room is clean, air conditioning is working properly, good shower. Only grouse about the room is the mattress. It is too hard as the norm in most Asian's hotels.

Other grouses about the hotels are :
1. as I had many rooms booked, the hotel messed up my bookings, It took me nearly 30 minutes to sort out my bookings.
2. front office staff especially the ladies are not that "friendly". They don't even bother to smile when guests walk in.
3. breakfast's selection is limited and is the same throughout the 3 mornings I was there. Although there is a sign stating that guests can order bacons, sausages or eggs to be cook in preferred manner, the staff tries to brush off the requests by stating that it is not available. My brother's request for half boiled eggs was denied. My order for scrambled eggs was initially denied until I told the waitress of the notice.

Location of hotel is excellent. So are the Aim, Icheck Inn and The Crib hotels which are all along the same row. There's a massage centre down the lane and round the corner. I prefer the one round the corner though the price is a bit more expensive. 7-11, McDonald, Banzaan market, Jungceylon is within walking distance. Banzaan is round the corner, 7-11 is on the opposite side of the main road, Jungceylon about 5 minutes walk.

The accomodation was more than pleasing and for a very reasonable price. The staff had great English and was very willing to help at any time. The location is just a few minutes from the hectic bangla road. Recommend

Really good value Hotel, not far from Bangla Rd but far enough not be in the middle of the Madness. Plenty of places to eat and drink les than 2 min walk away. Has bar and rest at bottom of Hotel and breakfast was simple but ample to cover most tastes. Pool on rooftop is reasonable with bar but not that suitable for kids, this is more an adult hotel. Room was extremely neat and well presented for the price, A/C and fridge worked well and housekeeping was extremely punctual and polite. Overall staff were very pleasant. I would certainly return. Free wifi which worked extremely well in rooms.
