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...

First impressions of the resort are very good. The front desk staff are courteous, though nothing more, but the resort staff in general are friendly and helpful. The reception is more focussed on Asian visitors but is still nice enough. The grounds and facilities are nice and well maintained (on the whole) yet once you start to get to accommodations...

This is a small garden hotel with wonderful staff who really look after their guests. We have been their many years and the staff remains unchanged. The bufet breakfast can satisfy all tastes with its varity and quality. River side dinning is wonderful but the food could be improved.

We only spent one night but plan to return. The resort has very nicely landscaped riparian grounds and similarly well maintained rooms. The interiors are quite elegant in a simple way and have all you need. The breakfast has a good varied buffet selection, not the BF vs. khao dom choice that is so common. The riverside restaurant is very...

Very nice park-like setting on the banks of the River Kwai. A bit far out of town but fine if you have a car. At the centre of the setup is the nice and large pool either side of which there are two storeyed wings with 22 rooms each. The rooms are fine in size; the only suggestion would be...
