Hi All,

Looking for feedback on the Novotel Phuket resort. Have a work meeting scheduled there and had a couple of questions:

- Has anyone stayed there - any feedback on the hotel?
- Any Plats have feedback on upgrades?
- When I go to book on the hotel page, the rate includes breakfast, but doesn't allow input of Accor number. The accor page has the same price, but no breakfast is included. I assume that I can book with hotel and have my accor # added directly and will still accrue points/benefits (I'm accor plat)
- There is also the Novotel Vintage (similar price) and M-Gallery B-Lay Tong ($40 AUD more expensive) close by. Are either of these worth staying at/better than the above hotel?

Thanks,

Luis

FWIW I stayed there in 2011 so my experience might be outdated however I think we paid $60 per night and was very good value. The pool area is spacious, its elevation means you can see the ocean as well. If you don't mind walking in the heat, its around a 25minute walk to/from Patong Road, though taxis/tuk tuks take a few minutes they all "charge" a flat fee (iirc 200BHT) to get you there. Can't comment about anything else though.

Agree with alans comments above. Stayed there twice over the last few years and found the property service wise quite good but tbh I found it annoying being so far from the main drag.
The 20 minute walk each time you wanted to go out became quite annoying in the heat.

Recently stayed at the Novotel earlier this year and totally enjoyed it. The Hotel offers an hourly shuttle bus into town, I think the last shuttle back is approx. 8pm so a 20-25 min walk back or a 200 bht tuk tuk ride if you want to stay in town. I'm an Accor Gold member so we had access to pre dinner drinks every night in the lounge. One good thing about this place was that fact that lounge chairs around the pool always seemed to be available.

Novotel Vintage Park is really good. Excellent pool and well-located being on the main drag. I would recommend this one. Stayed there just a month or so ago.
