Great Location and Pool

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Oct 2013
Stayed here for 4 nights as part of my Starfish Thailand trip. It's right on the banks of the River Kwai, which you'd expect. The rooms are average. The hotel lobby and some rooms were occupied by thousands of moths one night, just after a storm. Obviously the lights attracted them. Personally, I enjoyed killing hundreds of moths before bed but I know most people wouldn't. The pool is fantastic. You can see the river from the pool which is good. The staff didn't speak much, if any English though which is a downside.

This is such a cute hotel, clean and spacious rooms, nice hot showers, lovely pool! It's about 15-20 minutes taxi away from the main town, but you can get it cheap if you do want to go in.
The only downside is the staff. They were either not there, uncommunicative, or just plain useless. One meal time we waited an hour for our food and when we asked where it was, the lady hasn't even taken the order to the kitchen. We got our money back, told her to forget the food and got no apology.
Lovely place to stay, just don't expect service of any sort!

This resort has lots of potential. It is really run down to the ground. The maintenance upkeep is non existing whereby the location is very tropical with a large river-side location. The land is huge and the way the resort is laid out is not so good. We stayed in the main building which has two floor and is the furthest from the river. The rooms are REALLY run down and actually not worth being labeled a hotel room. The beds are shot and the linden/towels are grey and spotty! The bathroom is nasty and smelly and so is the rusted mini bar fridge which has only two bottles of water inside. The TV as well as the programs are below any decent standard and the room is. It very clean at all. There are not "black-out-curtains and the bright lights from the hallway shine into the room...so do not expect to get a good night sleep. The pillows are from a other age and hard like a "brick"! The breakfast is not good and for food and coffee...could not eat anything nor drink the coffee. The rooms are expensive for what they are at 1000.-/night. The pool is also old and not well maintained and the water quality and appearance is questionable...we did not use it. Service is as expected but overall friendly!

We stayed in a raft room, which was pleasant. The bedroom was spacious, clean and neat. The air-conditioning worked well. We were expecting many mosquitoes but there was just one in the room which we easily eliminated. The bathroom area is acceptable but could do with some TLC.

There was music coming from somewhere until late at night but, with the air-conditioner on, it did not really bother us.

Unlike most hotels in Thailand, the beds had soft, comfortable mattresses.

Some parts of the pontoon have suffered from the effects of rust and are in need of attention.

Dinner was reasonable, although the chicken in one of the dishes was undercooked, and thus left untouched. Breakfast was basic. Bees had taken over the jam, and small flies had taken over the pineapple slices, so we did not touch those. At dinner and breakfast there were few
vegetarian options.

The Hotel Reception was good. The staff were friendly and spoke fluent English. The restaurant staff were also friendly.

The hotel is situated on a large property with lots of greenery. It looks very nice.

Taxi charges to/from the River Kwai Bridge range from Baht 150 to Baht 200, depending on your haggling ability.

We would stay there again.

Reviewed 17 January 2012

Spent two nights here with a family of five. Booked raft houses, arrived to smelly, dusty and broken down rooms for 1000 baht a night. Managed to get moved to Hotel rooms, better but still run down and not very appealing for the price. Probably worth about 500 baht a room. Rest of the hotel was also pretty run down, restaurant didn't have much, breakfast was unappealing. Pool was okay but needed a clean. Location on the river was beautiful and peaceful especially at sunset, not easy to get in and out of town (Tuk tuks for about $5/6 each way. Virtually no other westeners staying, bit of a ghost town really except for a few functions for Thai locals.

Room tip: If you stay, bargain for a hotel room skip the raft houses
