My son sliced his foot open in the pool on a brokem tile. He needed 5 stiches. Banthai were kind enough to take us to and from the hospital plus move us to a ground floor room but it would beem nice if they offered to pay for the hospital bill as well. The staff were awesome.

Service from staff was poor. Three requests in one day, were required to arrange room to be cleaned. Fire alarm went off twice in one night, 2.40am and 4.10 am, and continued for circa 10 minutes each time. Obviously a very broken sleep that night, with not any attempt at an apology from management. Hotel is currently under renovation, with constant jack hammering and other very loud construction noise.

3rd Time at the Ban Thai

Pros: Close to everything. Beachfront location but set back from road so quiet at night. Great staff and facilities.
Cons: Slight language barriers with reception counter staff. Not insurmountable, just a little frustrating but their English is better than my Thai
Location: Location is fantastic. Within walking distance to shopping and easy commute to attractions in TukTuk or taxi.
This was our 3rd visit at the Ban Thai and they continue to impress. After the first two nights with noisy neighbours (undisciplined small children) the staff happily moved us (2 groups of 2 Adults in 2 separate rooms) to another part of the hotel which was much quieter and a better room. We did the Thai cooking classes and also the cocktail making classes and would highly recommend them. Great value and good fun. Staff continue to be fabulous at the Ban Thai. Can't do enough for you and always going out of their way to help. Great location. Beachfront but set back from main Patong Beach road with security staff constantly patrolling. Always feel very safe at the Ban Thai. Free WiFi which worked very well 90% of time (couple of slow days in a 2 week period). Definitely stay here if we go to Phuket again.

Nice hotel if you were paying $80-100AUD a night

At check in reception said "you only booked a deluxe suite". I actually booked a deluxe pool access. Had to show them my booking docs and the website to prove I was correct. (I wonder how many people acquiesce under this all too familiar scenario?) They said the wrong information was uploaded to Expedia. I explained I was paying $269/night. After 10min they finally came back and made me wait another 20mins in the reception room. Once in room I was totally underwhelmed. Cheap renovations done about 3 or 4 years ago and really showing wear now. Typical Thai hotel mattress hard as a plank (why Thailand? WHY?) Shower flooded when using it and water wouldn't drain out of the sink or toilet properly. Staff came to fix it. Pool and pool bar close at 6pm! So forget coming home from a day's expedition and having a dip and a beverage. At least they had the kindness to put me in a room far from the renovations. Also the photos for the resort on Wotif show their white bar which used to be out on the Main Street but fail to mention, it's GONE! I'm not a big drinker but I do like the idea of having a drink and people-watching from a cool vantage place. So this was disappointing. Overall, underwhelming. Like most of Phuket now. Every clothing stall sells exactly the same trashy dated clothes & accessories no one buys anymore! Even in the department stores it's like everyone has just given up. As for hotel, not value for money at all, at that price I could stay in 5 star at Sydney.

Very close to beach and shopping

Pros: Closeto everything
Cons: Paint, new fittings, tiles in pools replaced.
Location: Very close to everything
Staff were excellent and helpful. The hotel itself is overpriced. I would put it at a 3 star not five. Curtains were off the track, plantation doors did not slide or close, both needed for privacy. Rooms were very tired, tiles missing in the pool. Other then that, easy walk to all venues with the beach opposite.
