Reviewed 26 January 2013

The best of east and west - local charm and western amenities, food is delicious, sunsets are spectacular. But probably the day trips provided by the owner and one of which we took, was the most unexpected surprise. Away from the main road, occupied by tourist bus companies, down narrow, twisted roads used only by locals, to the villages where...

Hi Natasha W, Thank you very much indeed for your kind review. We're happy you enjoyed the tour up in the mountains, away from the touristy areas. We have some of the best scenery in northern Thailand, when you get away from the main roads. Best wishes Ian & Vassana

Chiang Saen, Thailand
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Ian and Vanessa really made us very welcome and we can't recommend this quiet little place highly enough. Chiang Saen is a nice quiet little place, perfect for a get-away-from-it-all type trip but a couple of days is probably enough. Food traditonal Thai was also very good.

Hi Rollo S, Thank you very much for your review. It is most satisfying that you would highly recommend us. It depends what you like, but many people stay here for 4 or 5 days and still wish they had stayed longer, as the reviewer below noted. There are a lot of things to see up here as well as...

I loved the individual bungalows with the view of the lake. The owners are charming and the owner's mother cooks one f the best Thai meals I ever had. Stay here and skip Chaing Rai and go biking hiking and kayaking

Hotel accommodation doesn't get much better than this; the location is perfect, the rooms are delightful, the view across the lake at sunset magnificent, the food is superb, the atmosphere is casual and the staff and service are outstanding.

Hi Jbabe57, Thank you very much for a lovely review. We're happy you enjoyed our unconventional approach to running a hotel. It seems to work for most people, as long as they are not looking for a 5 star hotel. We'd love to see you back here again and you can explore some more of this wonderful area. Happy New...

I highly recommend a stay at Viang Yonok. We stayed for 3 nights in November and had a lovely time. From Vassana (known as Jim) picking us up from the next town when we missed getting off at Chiang Saen (communication problem with the driver), to Ian taking us into town and giving us a tour before dropping us off...

Hi Lanny48, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely long review. That is most helpful. We're happy you enjoyed the beautiful location, the room, the food and the service.

Everything about this place is outstanding, especially the owners and workers. Everybody bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable. The accommodations are comfortable and aesthetically lovely. The food is great and made to order with our strange requests (vegetarian, diabetic). We left something's behind in our room and Ian went out of his way to drop it off for...

This is not your traditional 5-Star hotel and it does not pretend to be one. The Viang Yonok is a hotel owned by people who want to make you feel as being in a 5-Star place without the artificial cache. It is down to earth and you feel pampered by the owners as if you were part of the extended...

I enjoyed everything about this place from the special little touches on your arrival to the flourishing farewells. I received great advice on things to do, Chiang Saen is a beautiful town on the Mekong with amazing ruins dating back to 1100 with great shopping, massage by the river.
