The hotel is traditional and solid. Staff is prepared and relatively friendly, although with limited English. I read that the owner isn't the same that welcomed me two years ago, a funny and helpful Brit; nevertheless I believe the quality of the service to be still good. The wifi was the only real issue with almost no coverage throughout the...

Wow what a difference a change of management can make for the worse. I wish I could say good things as I have in the past but one of the things I always definitely require whilst traveling overseas is a good wifi connection. I always had this on previous visits to the Tatum Mansion but this time it was very...

While the location of this hotel doesn't get any better, the hospitality of Tatum Mansion made the hotel what it was. The staff went above and beyond expectations and accommodated every one of my needs with a smile. My room was extremely quiet which I didn't expect to find in Patong, as well as being right downtown, walking distance to...

Location of Tatum mansion is perfect for Patong. Centrally based & easy to get to the beach, restaurants, bars or Bangla Road. Hotel owner was extremely helpful of things around & also with our boat to Phi Phi & Krabi, the cost was lower than would have been elsewhere and a lot more convenient with them sorting it out for...

Highly recommended. Staff was incredibly kind and helpful. They even looked out for me when I got sick! Rooms are comfortable and just a hop away from the beach. Nothing is too far away! We ended up extending our stay for 2 more nights and just toured the island from our home away from home! We would definitely come back...

We loved our stay at Tatum. The hotel is perfectly located on Patong Beach, value for money, clean and has all you need. Their service is what makes them excellent. Kanya and Eric were very welcoming, and Kanya helped us with our trips and renting a scooter - and it was great! We felt spoiled and appreciated all their warm...
