Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

after 30 years of visiting thailand this is far and away about the best i have stayed at.the staff were very friendly,helpful and willing to oblige.absolute peace and quiet,a car is necessary to visit the sights as and when you want but well worth the visit.we had to leave at 5.am. and the staff wanted toserve us breakfast before we left which we finally persuaded them not to do but they were still there to see us off.will definitely book this hotel again.

Firstly this is definately an amazing place to stay! You just need to be aware that it will take you an hour by taxi to get to from Kanchanburi town centre. But, it is a perfect location for the death railway, hellfire pass and Newara falls. Make sure if you are staying here that you want peace and quiet and book longer than 1 night! (We didn't research it properly so spent more time getting there than staying there which was a shame as it is a beautiful place).
Standard double room was a little outdated but had everything you needed for such a quiet place- brew stuff, tv, DVD player (DVDs to borrow free from reception- there is nothing to do at night) comfy bed. Only downside was ants in the room BUT you are in the middle of the woodland right beside the river Kwai so bugs are expected, just spray DEET!
Make sure to find the jetti and enjoy the river view.
Owner doesn't speak English but you can get by. He was very nice. Food delicious, I recommend the fried fish.
We would definately stay here again (couple aged late 20's).

We stayed here for 2 nights and its in a lovely location right on the river very peaceful and quite, rooms where fine other then quite a few ants but that's to be expected, the real problem I had was with the service , first night we went to order food from the menu, "no have" I went through 5 items of no have before we just both orders chips and fried rice same went for lunch the next day however the food is good when you can get it, we wanted to go to hell fire pass which is about half hour 45mins away they charged us 1,100 Bart which is a lot as we had been quoted a taxi from kanchanaburi to hell fire pass for 1,300bart and that's a two hour + taxi trip, then when we went to leave we asked her for a taxi to the station it's like a 20minute walk but as we had heavy bags and it looked overcast, they tried to charge us 200 baht (we payed a taxi 50 baht to get to hostel from a station further away) and the taxi turned out to be the back of the girls motorbike there was no way we were fitting on the back with bags and all, anyway we walked and that's the thing with this place is kinda isolated so they can charge what they want and provide a bad service and there's no other options within walking distance.

Response from Best-Narut, General Manager at Saiyok River House
Responded 24 Sept 2013
Dear Miss Blubell, I am so sorry for the incident and your dissatisfaction. This message is not for justification but for trying to make understanding. I have talked with my on site manager about this problem and I have found out that our on probation front desk (lady boy) who we just hired last month caught cheated and we have fired him last week. Right now, from your message, we found out again that he tried to cheat on the transportation fees to the train station which we normally charge 50 baht. So we are really sorry about this. She also misunderstood about the order in the menu which I was told by the cook that you tried to order meat but she thought it is shrimp and that day our shrimp is out and it is too dark to buy from the market for you so we are apologize for this mistake. About the transportation to the hellfire pass. The trip also went to Saiyok Noi waterfall. We charged 1200 baht for the trip which start from 9 a.m. until around 3:30 p.m. This price is twice cheaper from our nearby hotel which the fee starts from 1500 baht just only hellfire pass. I am ensure that our resort offer the best price for transportation service and room rate in this area. However, I understand your dissatisfaction for the trip which worst thing is she let you walk to the train station which normally we should at least offer you a free lift. But since now we knew about her service and moral, we have fired her since last week. Thank you for your message and thank you for staying with us. I will try to make your comment as a tool for developing our resort in the near future. Best regards, Narut Hongratana-uthai

Really great place when prepared for peace and quiet. Amazing views and elephants bathing across the river twice a day.
Our room was excellent, though had hoped for mosquito nets. Staff speaks poor English but somehow we managed with google translate.
Really excellent food in the restaurant (though very slow service when more than one table occupied:-).
Excellent cleaning and really lovely cleaning lady :-) Will definitely be back if we have the chance.

We had a nice stay here, but it's relatively basic and quite remote from any services, so having a rental car is almost essential and is easy with plenty of parking space. Then the location is quite central to various places: Sai Yok park, Erawan falls, Hellfire pass museum, Kanchanaburi and it's right next to the railway and its famous curve and cave. The kids loved the (again: basic) "villa" and playground. We didn't trust the pool since there wasn't a refreshing system. (We considered going to the pool next door for 50 Baht pp, but ended up going to West Wonder Waterpark instead) Breakfast was very nice, with great view towards the Kwai river. One of the AC'a broke down and couldn't be fixed which made the last nights quite uncomfortable.

I had a wonderful experience here!! It is so peaceful, and the complementary breakfast was fantastic!! It felt like I was in a log cabin in the woods :) It is in the rural areas of Thailand so be sure to find a loyal cab driver to pick you up!! There is a local market about a mile down the street for a fun night. The place couldnt have been more perfect for the price!

Rooms are a little dated but adequate for the price. We chose the location as we were going to the Nature Elephant park linked with the Chiang Mai (more)ethical park. It was perfect, just across the river so it meant we didn't have to get up super early for a bus from kanchanaburi.
