“Best place to stay in pucket!”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

Im a 24 year old girl from Norwaystayed at Tatum Mansion a couple of nights. I stayed the first night at a fancy hotel that cost three times more than Tatum Mansion and wasn't nearly as good Tatum. It's clean quiet and nice, right by the beach. The owner is the kindest man ever, very helpful and nice. When I go next time to pucket Im with out a doubt staying there.

Reviewed 18 May 2011

I stayed here for six nights in May 2011. The room (superior room) was large, comfortable, clean and well maintained. The air conditioner was fully adjustable. The friendly staff generally spoke good conversational English and the reception was open 24 hours. No in-room safes, but safety deposit boxes were available at reception. The beach road is a five-minute walk, and Bangla Road about ten. If you're a single male, the massage girls won't give you a moment's peace. If they grab your arm, just smile good-naturedly and keep walking. They'll let go.

There was no hot water to the bathroom basin. No complaint: this appears standard for two star establishments. No jug supplied either, so I purchased one for TB229 at the Ocean Plaza Shopping Centre on the beach road, which is what one will have to do if one desires a hot shave, or any other reason for hot water in the basin. Your correspondent also enjoys a plunger of coffee at quite irregular hours, so a jug is essential. In any case, complimentary coffee is available at the bar 7:00am to 11:00am.

Complimentary water. Whilst I agree it is pointed out this is not supplied, I do have a little empathy for the contributor who allegedly overlooked this detail - every other establishment I stayed at in Phuket and Hua Hin supplied two bottles of water a day.

There is no restaurant on site, but plenty in the vicinity. My experience with the restaurant opposite, Song Pee Nong, was good price, nice food and vile coffee. There's a 7-11 store right next door for life's little essentials, including bottled water.

Summary: Tatum Mansion is, all in all, a pleasant and friendly establishment. Well worth recommending.

Overall-4/5- satisfied

Positives
-Phil is a Brit that runs the place. Very helpful and , if anything -talks too much! His staff speak good english/good enough
- Offered to arrange for aiport pickup which is cheaper than the guys that grab you when you arrive
-Location is walking distance to nightlife and beach. This is good because it is quiet enough to sleep at night and you are close to the action. This is the section of Patong you want to be in.
-Good restaurant across the street with menu catering to East and West
-Ac,dvd collection 35 B each to rent, minibar
-Minimart right next door

Negatives
-Not a great place for meeting people. There is an open area with a bar, but few ppl and far btw use is.
-Like many other accomodations- you can't leave without getting pestered by massage girls in any direction you go. (not all that bad, but slightly annoying when awaking at 11 am and just looking to eat)
-Beds - just 'OK'
-Tv channels lacking-news, Crime and investigation, and few others in English
-To get to beach you have to pass through long stall of ppl selling novelties (they are annoying)
-1 Computer for internet, limited to checking email briefly

Overall - For a 20 dollar per night place - Location was excellent, good staff, comfortable enough, I'd stay here again. You can't really get much better, and you can expect to be comfortable and taken care of here.

Reviewed 15 November 2010

Stayed in Tatum Mansion in the beginning of November. Great time of the year top visit Phuket. Not to warm, but fairly stabile weather and pre-highseason prices. Booked Taumt agoda, and when i arrived at 12.30 am, the reception knew excatly who I was, and I got my room right away. The rooms are very standard, the bed quite hard and the view from the window was a concrete wall. It needed fresh towles are provided every day, and on request, cleen sheets. The reception provides the information you need. They also provide beachtowels. Breakfast is not included, but easy to find in the neighborhood. The location is great. close to the beach, Bangla Road and Shoppingcenter, but beeing a solo male traveler not looking for female companionship, walking to Tatum can be a hassel. There are several massage shops in each direktion from the hotel where the girls is more than willing to give you a massage and more. They are, for me very "aggressive" in their salesmethods, shouting at you, walking in front of you and grapping your arm, hand and other bodyparts. Bit of a minefield.

For the Budget traveler, Tatum is a great choice.

Stayed at Tatum Mansion for 2 weeks 25th October to 7th November. Recommended by a friend of mine. Room very clean, towels and bed sheets are changed every day floor swepted, staff have a smile on their faces and say, "Good Morning". THe Hotel dosen't have a resturant, but an excellent one is opposite price is good for Thai & Non-Thai foods. 711 or Family Mart is next door, bars are a stone throw away. Most things you want is on your door step. Phil the owner of the hotel is very accommodating to your every needs, any problems he will resolve asap. He tries to have a chat with his guess whenever he is not busy.
i would book here again without thinking twice, i enjoyed my stay, i had the suite, room 501 a lot of stairs before you arrive to your room, but that is only a minor setback. Can't wait to return to Thailand soon...
