The Best Mansion
Reviewed 23 November 2014

I found this hotel accidentally in internet and since it looked nice, we booked it for one week, being concerned that maybe it looks better on photos than in reality. However we were pleasantly surprised that the reality was even better - all little appartment-style rooms are surrounding a nice, calm, green and well maintained pool area. It was cheap and beautiful and even had a kitchen with open roof, even though it was unequipped.
Chalong is also a nice area to stay in Phuket, if you rent your own vehicle, because it's quite far from beaches. Rawai and Nai Harn beaches can be reached easily with one local bus (the nice open and cheap blue buses that you just stop on the main road), but for getting to Kata and Karon beaches you have to take either 2 buses (a lot of waiting) or a tuk-tuk for 400thb.
There is a good bakery just around the corner from the hotel and a market nearby. As we found out later the big Tesco Lotus is quite close also. Very good place for long stay.

Little bungalows with patio doors that open onto the beautiful communal pool. The flora and fauna are stunning. For approx' £20 a night, you really can't go wrong. As a family of 6 adults we had 3 bungalows, all next door to each other. All have air conditioning!
The bungalows are basic but clean. Clean towels are provided daily and the very helpful staff clean each bungalow from top to bottom (literally) daily.
They have open roofed kitchen areas at the back. We didn't use the kitchens because they were just too hot and home to small indigenous creatures like lizards and ants (these posed no problems at all, to the inside space). There are a few TV channels (but who wants to watch TV?). Telephones in rooms do not work.
Best Mansion advises that you bring your own gas cooker and kettle as neither are supplied! (LOL we purchased a travel kettle...just got to have a cup of tea in the morning!) There is no food available on site but cold drinks can be obtained from reception.
The beds/mattresses are firm and comfortable and have mattress protectors.
The hotel is very safe and totally private and enclosed. A gentleman even sleeps in reception at night, to let you in and out. There is a small safe in each room.
Out of the hotel and to the right there is 'Ban Kanom' a wonderful cake and coffee house. They sell a HUGE range of meals, both European and Thai - a basic green curry is 65 baht! and next door to that an Italian restaurant.
The hotel will book cabs for you but we were fortunate enough to have a family member living on the islands, to drive us around :) The nearest beach is within walking distance but it was just too hot to walk there!
All in all a truly lovely place to stay. We will return!
Thank you Best Mansion staff for making our stay a memorable one.
