We first stayed at Jinny Guesthouse in January 2006, we didn't know what to expect as this was our first time staying at a "guesthouse" as opposed to a 4+ star hotel. It was also our first trip to Thailand with the children who were aged 11, 9, 7, and were a bit worried about the quality of accommodation and exposing the children to this.
Well, I shouldn't have worried, from the moment of our arrival till the day of our departure the staff went out of their way to make our stay a truly wonderfaul experience. We were booked into deluxe and double interconnecting rooms on the first floor, the rooms were spotless and roomy, and the bathrooms meticulously cleaned. Rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard and cleaning staff even put the kids soft toys on the bed after making them each morning making the room even more homely.
The staff were amazing especially Jane and her husband who own and run the guesthouse. Although it is not as close to the beach as some would prefer I felt that the overall price of 1,000 baht (2006 high season) per night per room and the warm smiles of the staff certainly made up for it. The pool was fantastic especially by guesthouse standards and was very clean, it would put many star hotels to shame.
Our stay in 2006 was that enjoyable and left us with a great feeling that in May 2008 we returned, minus the children, but with some friends who also fell in love with the place as much as us. Again I could not fault the staff for anything, service and assistance was always offered with a smile.
In January 2009 we returned yet again for two weeks with the children, yet again everything was great, the rooms clean and service outstanding, this time the guesthouse had received a coat of paint, alerting me that the owners truly cared about and looked after the place and ensured that it did not look or operate as a rundown guesthouse.
Yes, it is great to stay in beautiful 4+star resorts etc, however by staying here we have gotten to experience the service and assistance that you would receive at any 4+ star resort , but also get to meet and mix with the locals in the area and make some beautiful friendships with the staff and owners. My children have stated that whenever they visit Phuket this is the only place they wish to stay.
Go On have a go and try it you will be very pleasantly surprised!!!!
