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.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a deluxe double room. Room was clean, very rustic. Bed was comfortable but air con was quite noisy. Room got light very early and curtains on the back coloured window panes would minimise this. Pool area was really nice to relax in. Breakfast was good, we paid for it to be included but you are only allowed to choose 1 drink and 1 food option, anything else is extra. So for example if you want a coffee and a water, you have to pay additional for one of those. If you want cereal and toast, you have to pay additional for one of those items. It wasn't a lot of money but as we already paid for breakfast when we booked, we just weren't expecting it. It was a good base from which to explore; about a mile walk from Bridge over the river Kwai, or a short tuc tuc ride. About same distance to Kanchanaburi war cemetery which was a very humbling experience. It was also easy to make our way round using public transport. We got a tuc tuc to the train station and then a train to Nam Took, spectacular scenery along the way. We then got a taxi bus to Hell Fire Pass which is definitely worth a visit. The guest house is just around the corner from bars, restaurants, street food etc but we didn't hear any noise from them.
