My husband and I stayed here for the second two weeks of our holiday. The entrance does not prepare you for the peace and quiet that you will encounter ... the gardens are tropical and well maintained and the location next to the river gives a sense of serene relaxation. The room was basic, entry is straight into the bathroom which I found a little curious but became accustomed to that. We had a king sized bed but no amount of tossing and turning was going to give me a good sleep ... the mattress is very hard which seems to be normal in the hotels here, but the pillows were awful, foam filled hard blocks. Consequently sleep quality for me was zero, though my husband likes hard mattresses. Staff were okay but mostly indifferent, we did not receive much of a welcome on arrival and no goodbye when we left even after 2 weeks. A large group of Chinese came to stay for a couple of days and one would have thought that Royalty was arriving with the number of staff engaged in special preparations beforehand ... it would have been nice to have been afforded the same. They do not appear to have a strong grasp of english so communication was strained at times. Only once did I use the 'Bistro' when I craved a sandwich and coffee and found that food was served at the Ping riverside but not coffee which was only available at the front breakfast area, even though this was mid-evening. Prices I feel are too high by Thai standards which is probably why I saw few people eating there. The breakfast itself was well prepared, sometimes it is a buffet setup other times by menu depending on the number of guests staying at the time. The food was excellent and plentiful. We enjoyed our stay here on the whole but did find it was too far away from conveniences even with a shuttle bus service. It is unlikely we would return to Lanna Mantra for this reason as there are numerous hotels/resorts on the Ping river which offer the same tranquility closer to Chiang Mai, but I would definitely recommend it for stays of a week or less for anyone looking for this type of place.
