Good hotel at Nanai road
Staff, nice room, surroundings
During my check in, I was given a studio room (free upgrade) - thanks to the staff and the room was really nice!
Bad WiFi in the rooms, so sometimes I had to use lobby WiFi.
During my check out, I had a bill for mineral water (30 baht). I know, I didn't drink it, so that was strange. I explained the situation to the staff - and hope they understood me, cos I didn't pay for it at the end.

2 nights in Patong
Cheap but good service, not very noisy at night time.
Helpful front desk booking tours and a taxi.
A shame about the breakfast, choose from a short menu and not terribly filling.

A little gem away from the noise of Patong
Wonderful staff, good food, atmosphere
We loved the Sun Hill Hotel! It's not right down in the city of Patong but within easy walking distance (15-20 minutes) or take a cab for 200 THB. The hotel will arrange taxis to and from the hotel (and other places)for approximately 600 THB which is very reasonable as it is almost an hour from the airport. Don't catch a taxi outside the airport or you will pay 2500 THB! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the owner greeted us each evening we came in to eat and obviously cared about his guests comfort. The reviewer who spoke otherwise of management was way off base in our experience. The rooms were very clean and we loved the towels folded into different shapes every day. The laundry service was wonderful and I didn't find the mini bar too expensive. Less expensive than in the U.S. for sure. The young lady who waited on us at breakfast was wonderful and had a great sense of humor. If you have need of a physician there, I'd recommend using one other than the hotel recommends. The ladies at the front desk were great too and there was usually one on duty who spoke pretty good English. We live in South Korea and they spoke far more English than you'll find here. The pool could use a little maintenance on the grout but was fine though small. If you want a fast taxi just walk across the street to the little lady that sells gas for scooters (which the hotel also rents) and she will take you where you want to go. I highly recommend the Sun Hill Hotel and should we ever visit Patong again (and if we do it won't be during the crowded December holidays) we will definitely stay at Sun Hill. My ONLY complaint was the slow or non-existent internet and that was a real problem. I think it's a Thailand problem though.

all is good
large room, clean hotel, friendly staff
we stayed there for 3 nights. we booked a superior room and they upgraded ours to deluxe. the room is big with balcony and mini kitchen. the hotel isn't too close to the nightlife, so it's pretty quite for resting. one day we come back to phuket, this hotel will be the first option^_^

A great place!
Clean, comfortable, nor expensive
Firstly, I felt that Sun Hill is far away from beach, but later it took me only about 15 min to get to the beach, so for those who doesn't mind to have a walk, the location of Sun Hill is pretty comfortable. And I feel that this hotel is very nice for those who can't deal with the noise on Bangla road, because the place is very quite. I would advice this hotel as Family hotel or Romantic hotel for honeymoon even. However, there were some small issues, for example the shower gel and shampoo batcher didn't work well, wifi didn't work inside the room it worked only outside or near reception. But anyway, I love the place!

Fantastic value for money
Staff, comfort of the room, price
The rooms are very clean, the beds extremely comfortable and the staff very helpful. The rooms have everything you need and the shower is better than most 4* hotels. There are restaurants and bars a few minutes walk away but the centre of Patong is about a 15 minute walk away and the first part is along a busy road without a pavement which might be a problem with young children. Taxis are plentiful but operate a one way system round the resort with a flat fare of 200 bht (approx £4)which soon mounts up. However, the price makes this a great option if you wish to stay in Patong.

This hotel is located roughly 5 minutes from central nightlife area of Patong and Patong beach itself but being located at the hill side circling Patong, gives it a sense of tranquility and quitness. Thus it is highly recommended to those looking for some quite and pricate place but still located near to the main attraction. Staffs are friendly and they have ample parking space,greatly appreciated for those who rent cars or bikes. Rooms are spacious and nicely designed with traditional elements. Overall a wonderful experience and will definitely return

clean and noisy room with unfomfortable beds
cleanness, specious and nothing more
The rooms are clean and specious. Located 20-30 min walking distance to central entertainment in Patong. Both surrounding and staff might be very loud and noisy at night shouting and laughing, disturbing the peace. They will ignore you even if you ask them to talk quietly at 2am :( The aircon sounds like a two motor engine aircraft killing all other noises :) beds are like flotation mattress. when you turn, your partner may end up on the floor. A very poor breakfast menu (No drinks are included except tap water). Staff with very limited knowledge in English and the one who spoke better English was very rude. I would not stay in this hotel.

Great hotel - Nice & Comfortable
Good food, Clean rooms and nice staff
This hotel is about a 15 minute walk away from Patong Beach and maybe 20-25 minutes away from Bangla Road and the nightlife area, there is a 7-11 shop about 10 minutes down the road as well. The hotel is nicely furnished, really clean and comfortable. There is a small swimming pool to cool down in and relax. The breakfast served was good with a few options to choose from. The staff were really nice and attentive and we had no problems at this hotel through our entire stay. A great place to stay in Patong beach at a great price too.

Great Stay Great Value Good Food nearby
Located in a non busy street but with plenty of amenities nearby. Well sized room and balcony.
Stayed here for three nights (6-9 July 2013) with my GF. Here's what I think;
-Friendly staff. Alway with a smile. And they seem to be really happy working in Sunhill.
-Quick check in & out.
-Well sized room with Balcony facing the pool/small garden.
-Small pool so its more for a dip than for swimming.
-Limited selection for Breakfast (six choices). The western set doesn't looked appealing to me cos of its small portion and doesn't look very yummy. But on the other hand, the Thai Porridge is soooo good I had it every morning for the entire stay. You should try it. Breakfast starts at 9am which I think its a little too late.
-But if you have an early excursion they can prepare sandwich in advance for you for your morning BF. Need to inform them the night b4.
-Its located at the foot of a hill thus fresh air and peaceful except for the occasional loud noise from some old-beaten lorry or bike.
-Powerful aircon. I tried to turn it down only to realise than its already in Low.
Nevertheless its better than not cold.
-Its a simple nice hotel with good service. If you are looking for fancy room with bathtub then look else where.
-away from the crowded noisy street of Patong.
-Walkable to Jungceylon area but may need about 15 mins. We rented a scooter hence its a perfect location for us. Away from the noise when we need to rest yet within 3 mins ride to Patong area.
-If you are into Thai massage; try "Sweet Lemongrass Massage". Trust me, its worth your every dollar. Among those nearby this one has better ambience, great massage and its a mere 45 seconds by motorbike. We go there everyday. It has proper massage bed. Its clean and they play nice soothing music. We go in the morning. If you intend to go in the afternoon, its better to make reservation.
NEARBY FOOD / AMENITIES
-Sawedee Restaurant: Reasonably priced. they served good yummy thai food presented very nicely and the place is nicely decorated thai style open air. From the hotel, turn right and
