For 400 Baht a night you cannot complain. The rooms are clean and provide what you need; bed, fan and hot shower. I think air con was an option but we were content to just have the wall fan.
We stayed in Eagle House 1 which we arranged by email. The staff were very efficient and helpful in their responses.
We were greeted by a friendly receptionist on arrival who helped with our questions and organised a cooking course for us. We would highly recommend the in house cooking even if you chose to stay else where. We did a full day course with the chef all to ourselves. The maximum number for a class is four so even if there are others you will get all the attention you need. The day began with choosing the five dishes you want to learn to make (you can all do different ones) then a trip to the market to buy your ingredients fresh for the day. You return to the kitchen to prepare all your ingredients then the cooking begins. The chef was brilliant giving great instruction and conversation. Our top dishes to cook would be hello curry, hot and sour prawn soup, spring rolls and sticky rice with mango. You receive a certificate and recipe book to take away with you so you can recreate the tastiness at home.
As for the room it was clean, comfortable, cheap and in a quiet location with a very nice massage place just around the corner. The only negative was that "a three year old could break down the door" said my boyfriend but we felt safe during our stay.
It is also a good location for walking to the old town in the day and to the night market in the evenings.
The website states there is a pick up service but there was no one to collect us when we arrived.
