This really is a gem of a hotel. My wife, 2 sons and self just stayed for 3 nights – one double and one twin room including breakfast was less than THB 10,000 for the whole stay. Evening meal(s) were extra but also good quality, plentiful in a really beautiful setting alongside the River Kwai. An absolute bargain for delightful...

Hello, I am a taxi driver in Bangkok and have a shuttle service throughout Thailand. My clients have been staying at this hotel regularly. They say that they like it a lot, always come to stay regularly. Excellent. Thank you

This joint can't be faulted. In the modern meaning of the word the staff are terrific ... attentive, thoughtful, obliging and genuine; the location is terrific and the rooms are terrific. The tariff is not at all frightening. Good food in the restaurant. Buffet breakfast standard best try but miss the mark. If you are in a swank hotel in...

A super hotel set in large open well-kept grounds. Clean and comfortable room with all facilities (including a hair dryer and fridge). No problems with the water. An army of staff in every location, friendly and keen to help if required. Excellent bar terrace on the river, with live music in the evening. Wide selection for breakfast.

This place offers great views of the river and nice food and music at night time. The breakfast is good, something for everyone. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are very polite and helpful, I'd definitely go back

This hotel was set in beautiful grounds with an inviting pool and lovely restaurant bar on the river. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our only complaint was the first morning cold shower with minimal water. Second night we lost water altogether in the middle of the night ( couldn't wash hand or flush toilet) but this was restored by...

If you have stayed in Thai-run resorts, you will know what to expect with a place with this sort of rating - great grounds, good pool, solid rooms. The rooms are functional and clean, but not really places you want to spend time other than to sleep. I can confirm that the photos are pretty accurate. In particular: * The...

I spent a night here and found the rooms and grounds clean. A well maintained hotel with friendly staff. Child friendly with an excellent view of the river. The restaurant was good and offered a variety of Thai meals.

Stayed one night with G Adventures tour. This has been my favourite hotel so far. The scenery took my breath away! It is nice it looks more Thai rather than western. Opportunity to have massages, although cheap (start from around £10 for half an hour). It is expensive compared to the rest of my travels in Thailand. I was on...

This hotel was our first stop on our Spiceroads Kanachanaburi trip. The staff were fantastic, administration excellent, the rooms clean and well prepared. Our guide helped us select our meals which were stunning and tasteful. We accidentally locked our room safe and they helped us immediately without fuss. It is also well situated for cycling, Kwai river bridge and the...
