One of the nicest things about getting awards from Tripadvisor.com is that they are voted for by you, our customer and not some snooty ex-hotelier with a clipboard and their nose stuck up in the air.
These awards are given based on the volume and quality of reviews over the years and we’ve won several including the special award for value.
We are especially proud of that one as it is one of the core principles we operate on, providing quality accommodation at fair prices.
Some highlights from our reviews over the years…
‘”Great prices, good room and a laid back attitude from the management.
They were very helpful with information about what to do and what to pay too, we are not miserly by any means, espceially when on holiday, but their advice saved us a packet. One of the staff actually took us shopping and got quite cross with some vendors when she saw what they were trying to sell stuff for!”‘
‘My husband and I stayed in the Penthouse for 6 nights as part of our honeymoon, the room was excellent, HUGE and with two balconies. There is nothing I can fault with this hotel.”
“”From the outset at arriving at Kellys I was met with a warm greeting which extended into outstanding service for the duration of my stay.Cannot fault this hotel from its idyllic position to the beautiful pool and friendly staff. Simply Outstanding!!!”"
“Kellys lived up to all the reviews I had read previously – no disappointments. The penthouse rooms (which we had booked both for a family of 5) were great, almost a home away from home.”
”Just got back from spending more than 2 weeks at Kelly’s Hotel. After reading all the reviews on Tipadvisor, I went with quiet high expectations, all of which were not only met but easily surpassed’”
“‘I was in Phuket on holiday in Feb 2011, i stayed for a week in an hotel (wouldn’t mention name) which was ok. I then stayed at Kelly for another week, what a difference – personal attention, good advice and friendly staff and of course clean room’”
“‘This is a great place to stay. Your far enough away from Bangla Rd to have peace and quiet at night but close enough to walk downtown if you want to join in the madness.”‘
We have had some terrible reviews, if you hunt around the tripadvisor site you’ll find them. None of these people ever stayed at Kelly’s and were stopped at the door for being abusive to taxis or staff so we didn’t allow them to book in. You don’t need in the same hotel and neither do we, we’re better than that. However enough of them have been so annoyed by this policy they’ve jumped on the review sites and bagged us. You don’t actually have to qualify to stay at Kelly’s but if you’re being a dick, you’re not welcome and we will happily refuse your entrance.
