Reviewed 11 March 2014

We had a river view room which was fine for our one night stay and was very reasonably priced. Our evening meal was good as was the breakfast, although it is worth mentioning that it was very chilly first thing in the morning because of the time of year. The restaurant has lovely views over the Mekong. There was one draw back in that they were building on the plot of land next door and it was very noisy as they were pile driving. They did however stop work at about 6pm. The hotel arranged our transport to the newly opened immigration office and bridge over to Laos. It is worth allowing extra time for this as it now takes about 15 minutes to get there and gets busy very quickly.

Room Tip: We liked the room with a view of the river.

Arriving in Chiang Khong for the barge crossing into Laos around lunchtime meant I had not intended to stop on the eastern side of the Mekong. However, 40 BMW 1200 GSA's lined up out front of this venue caught my attention. An accommodation venue is good for many reasons, not the least of which is the company you meet.

I was very surprised at the quality of this relatively new property. Cottages set in manicured gardens, most with a balcony and view of the muddy Mekong. The rooms are of comfortable size and the appointments are of a high quality. Very comfortable bed, sat TV, well stocked modern bathroom.

The dining room is also very comfortable and spacious. A broad selection on an international menu, although there were around 50 dining. Nevertheless, the food was of a high standard.

Next time in Chiang Khong I will check with Teak Garden first before looking at the other options.

Room Tip: Some bungalows have a better view than others. Check first. You may spend much of your evening sitti...

We stayed there for one night before we crossed into Laos. The rooms are small, but clean. The staff was friendly. It is right on the river and some rooms have a balcony on the river. It is not necessary to book these rooms, however, as you can sit on the restaurant patio as long as you like and get the same experience. It is right in town, but, there is nothing to see except a couple of temples. Our complaint is with the food. We ordered dinner from the menu and the chicken was inedible, all fat and gristle. The breakfast was a good buffet, with a good selection, but everything was cold, even the eggs. The serving dishes are all cold.

We stayed here one night only because this was ideally suited to pick up our Mekong River cruise in the morning. We found it to be a surprisingly pleasant hotel, comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the Mekong River. The room was comfortable, breakfast was unexpectedly good, and the balcony was a perfect place to while a way some time. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel but found a terrific, all-you-can eat BBQ restaurant across the road.

We took a pleasant walk along the river before dinner but really didn't explore the town any further.

Room Tip: River view with balcony is worth getting

This is a lovely hotel perfectly located on the edge of the town centre, on the bank of the Mekong and right opposite a large town in Laos. This was particularly noisy and busy due to the Chinese New Year, resulting in some spectacular firework displays. It is a good place to start your Mekong river cruise from and has pleasant staff.

The good -
The staff are helpful and the location and gardens are spectacular. The beds are very hard but are clean and the sheets fit. The shower room was very good. Very nice balcony overlooking the river on the river view rooms. Kettle in the room. Very good free wifi.

The bad -
There is nothing really bad, but the food was disappointing. Breakfast on our first day was self service in the restaurant area, unfortunately it had been cooked when the place opened at 6am and was poor. In contrast, when we left for our river cruise,very early the next morning, it was cooked to order and was much better but with a pretty poor choice. We did have an evening meal and this was poor. Friends we met later highly recommended the simple restaurant opposite the hotel entrance.

We did like this place and would definitely return on a future trip.

Lovely room- worth paying extra for the river view, has a balcony. Pretty gardens & places to look at the view. Spoilt by mould in bathroom and dirty mould shower curtain. The hot water takes ages to arrive, so be patient! The border crossing changed in January to 15 km back down the road- (maybe still ok for cars??) so instead of being close & convenient, the hotel is a distance away. But was only 100 b by tuk tuk., which the hotel phoned for us. Reception staff could be more helpful, and in the morning at check out time we had to wait 15 mins for someone to arrive at the front counter. Unlike some other negative comments by reviewers, we found the breakfast was really good.

The riverside room was really nice and spotless. There is a nice outdoor bar located next to the river. We were riding motorcycles and were able to park right in front of the check in desk which is about as secure as you can get. We had breakfast, but I have to say it was hardly worth the time, more of a production line for bus people. The rooms and location were good enough that I will stay here again, but will make other arrangements for breakfast.
