More than just providing us rooms to stay in for one night, I think owners and hosts Dennis and Nee won our hearts, with their care, hard work and attention to detail. Nee's cooking was fantastic, especially the chicken massaman curry and prawns with garlic in black pepper sauce.
The river flows quietly past the property, and the tastefully done up river bank is probably the best place to sit and have a few beers in the afternoon / evening.
I don't remember whether there was a tea/coffee-maker setup in the rooms, but I do remember missing my morning tea on waking up - but then I'm probably just nit-picking.
Someday, maybe, we shall go back there and spend a much longer time enjoying ourselves, unless the Comptons seriously hike tariffs!
