My girlfriend and I stayed a night in a deluxe room for THB 800. We arranged for pickup at the airport (200 THB), which went flawlessly and was done by a really nice guy who seemed to be the night manager. The transfer took about 30 mins. If you arrive from BKK after dark, forget walking into the city. Transfer to and fro is about 100 THB each. Apparently taxis sometimes won't come out to the hotel, in that case the really nice hotel staff takes care of the transfer with a hotel-owned car (same rates apply).
We had a decent stay, though there was certainly nothing deluxe about the room except maybe the AC. The mattress was borderline okay while the bathroom was about the same quality we later saw in significantly cheaper guesthouses during our trip.The building and the premises are fairly nice, but I couldn't find much of the romance some of the other reviewers talk about.
Mind you that a hotel located at a pond means mosquitos and the room was not equipped with a net. When we approached the staff about this we were given an electric squatter accompanied by some chuckling. A decent dose of no bite made sure we were only bitten once or twice that night, though. The breakfast is about as minimalistic as the other reviewers have suggested, btw. You'll probably end up ordering from the menu or hit some place in the town if you transfer out of Chiang Rai in the morning,
