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.

OMG! Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined an experience like this. It’s just cool, and I’m not even going to try to describe it. Yep, it is truly indescribable, and while the photos on the website are representative, you simply got to see it to believe it. From the wonderful buffet breakfast to the 10 minute boat ride back to the pier and the historically important visit to the death railway and waterfall. We are so grateful that Audley recommended this leg of our trip.

Stayed for two nights in The Floathouse and were very impressed m. Our guide, Simon, was fantastic - always on hand if we needed something, great on our excursions and all arrangements ran seamlessly. The rooms are beautiful with a spacious outdoor section. The ‘movement’ from the water is not an issue ….. takes a little getting used to the sound of the waves in the night but that’s very much a first world problem! Food was excellent, massage even better!! A path at the back of the property leads you up on your the land where you can explore with/ without bicycles. The Lawa cave is well worth a visit and there are some beautiful planted gardens to walk through. The Mon village tour is decent if your guide is good ….. we were worried we’d have children/ locals paraded in front of us for our entertainment but it’s not like that at all. All in all, a great way to spend a couple of nights in this part of Thailand. Highly recommended.

Even more beautiful than I expected. The room was spectacular! So gorgeous right on the river and a very cool experience. I never wanted to leave. Really enjoyed the rocking of the bed as waves came in. Everything was very clean and the staff were so helpful and sweet.

A really special and unique place. We booked two villas (adjoining) for a one night stay and we all loved it (family of 5 - three teenagers - I wouldn’t stay with youngsters due to the river). The location is fantastic, you feel so removed from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. The villas are spacious and comfy with their own sun decks which you can jump into the fast flowing river (wearing life vests!!) and float to the end of the hotel before getting out. Hours of fun. The buffet dinner was delicious and the drinks are reasonably priced). We cycled to the lawa caves (make sure to take 300THB an adult, 150THB a child), and whilst it was a bit out of my comfort zone and very hot, it was a good experience. There is noise from the river (obviously) all night so bring earplugs if this would bother you. The WiFi was good and they had chargers that you just needed usb cables for which was great. Highly recommend! We have booked a boat to take us for a stay at Hinton River Camp further up. The hotel booked our transfers for us.

This hotel is a real experience. Floating on the river Kwai. Excellent chalets, comfortable beds, staff very helpful and friendly. The meals were excellent and a good menu choice. Tucked away within nature. We floated down the river with the current which was a great experience. The boat rides in and out to the hotel added to the adventure.

Lovely stay for 3 days. Arrived here via raft from the Hintok Camp Hotel Resort where we stayed night before. The staff at Float House, especially Mr Kar in restaurant were so friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. My wife is a vegetarian so difficult as a lot of Thai dishes have fish sauce, egg or traces of meat. Managed to cycle around to the next hotel along the river. Mountain bikes are free to use and surpringly good quality and looked after. Managed to jump in the River from our room with provided life vest and float down the length of hotel.
