If wifi/internet is important to you as well as comfort, convenient and great value, this is the place for you. We have been to many other accommodations around the same area and by far this place has the fastest internet. It's good to know the Owner is always around and is a great man who really cares about your stay....

We booked 3 nights here but ended up staying 4 as part of our 2 week trip coming down from Bangkok. The owner arranged private taxi collection for us saving us money on the non metered, inflated Phuket taxi prices. We opted for a room with no balcony being as we felt we would be out most of the time...

I think Kata beach caters to a certain crowd. Not too exclusive, not too backpacker like. So for the traveller that wants to escape the craziness of Patong, but not be too isolated from amenities, then Southern Fried Rice embodies that character also. LOCATION: It is outstanding in its convenience for many things. First on the list is how close...

Our family stayed here in Feb 2012 for one week and we had a wonderful stay. First off, the guesthouse is in a very good location. It is set off the main street where you can escape some of the traffic and noise, but still be close to everything. It is about a 5 minute walk to Kata Beach and...

SFR is located a short walk from the beach and from the main restaurants of Kata Beach. Terje, the owner, is the most chilled and relaxed hotel owner I have met. The price of the rooms covers continental breakfast and free wifi, which makes the airconditioned rooms good value.

We found this hotel through Trip Advisor and i would like to thank all visitors who wrote the reviews. The hotel is really nice. Close to everything: just 300 m to the beach and next to the local market, so, you can easily buy fruits or fried fish there. The rooms are exactly the same as on the photos: big,...
