This small hotel, situated right on the main street of Sawankalok, looks like any other rural Thai hotel, from the outside. However, when you step inside you can see it offers something more. You walk into the spacious & cool reception area, to be greeted by friendly staff. It is all newly decorated and this extends to the rooms and corridors, which have charming decorative accents of Sawankalok pottery and Northern Thai art thouches (many Thai hotels have nicely decorated reception areas and old rooms and corridors). We took a standard room which had a large and very comfortable bed with high quality bed linen, plenty of good towels, attractive furniture including a wardrobe, a big fridge, TV, A/c, tea&coffee making, hairdryer and a large bathroom (decorated with the lovely local pottery) and with a big shower with excellent water pressure & hot water! The room was not large but large enough for 2. The hotel also includes a good lift. Although the hotel is on the main street it is a very quiet town so we heard no noise and had a good night's sleep. Also at the back of the property is a beautiful garden, which is big enough for a stroll around. The room rate includes breakfast, but it is only a basic set American or Asian breakfast. They have a lovely spot for breakfast which overlooks the garden. The only negative comment is that the hotel doesn't serve any food and the eating options in town are rather limited.
Tip: ask for a map from reception and it points out the few restaurants in town, and the night market. You will need this as none have english signs (but surprisingly they can produce engligh menus). I can recommend Sommas restaurant opposite Tesco Lotus for tasty fresh Thai food (and an extensive menu). I do not recommend Koheng Restaurant near the river, as they just had a few Chinese dishes on their english menu and the food was awful and overpriced.
We stayed here as we wanted to go to Ban Hat Sieo for the Monks ordination on elephants festival, and then to Si Satchanlai historical park and these places were only 20kms or so away. The hotel staff helped us to get a driver to take us to these places, at a very reasonable price. We were able to get here easily by bus from Bangkok but flying back was a good option as it is a full day journey. The airport would only be around 12kms away.
The hotel also has some bicycles available so we were able to explore the town. It is a very traditional Thai town with lots of lovely old wooden houses and little traffic. There is even a good museum over the river, with a nice collection of Sukothai/Sankalok pottery and some beautiful antique buddahs.
So if you have already seen Sukothai and wish to explore Si Sathchanlai (well worth a visit) this is a good place to base yourself. A nicer hotel in a small town would be very hard to find!

Nice place, it's an old building that has been gutted and refurbished into a good quality new hotel.  friendly, helpful, happy staff on the front desk.  Clean and well appointed room, soft bed with quality linen, free wifi, a/c, HOT water and a fridge.  The only downside is that there's no restaurant. 
The hotel is in a real Thai town, it's not very tourist orientated. unless you want to buy some agricultural hardware that is?  But it has a night Market and friendly locals.
Would I stay here again?  Absolutely!
Would I pass sukhothai to get here? Sorry no.  But if your in town or even visiting  si satchanalai historical park and looking for a good hotel around the 800 bhatt mark, it's a very good bet
