4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

My stay in the camelia resort was great! Yes, it is basic, and yes, you might be welcomed by an insect in your room, but this is thailand. The view is amazing, the terrasses and balconies nice, the pool great, the staff friendly and the food good. For me, there was nothing more i needed and i really enjoyed my stay.

After 3 night in the Felix river kwai resort we decided to extend our stay in Kanchanaburi and move on to a less luxurious hotel... Big mistake, Fair enough this is a budget hotel with amazing views, we paid roughly £18 a night. The rooms themselves arent the best; very basic and in need of a bit of attention... none of this was of major concern as we were having a great time in Kanchanaburi and the standard of room wasnt really high priority.
After arriving home at roughly 2 am after a night in the local town i found my hotel room unlocked, at the time i thought this was slightly odd but was tired and went straight to sleep, it was when i woke in the morning i discovered my room had been cleared out, other than a few t-shirts and a few other other bits and pieces. My suitcase full of clothes, ipad, phone, money, gifts to take back home... pretty much everything i took on my travels.. I reported it to the staff who called the police who came and took a report and informed me that they had had this happened at the Camilia resort in the past and obviously it was highly unlikely my possesions would be found..
Although i could prove nothing i highly suspect that the staff at the hotel had something to do with the theft.. there were no signs of the lock being picked or forced open which leads me to suspect that a key was used...
I would highly recommened Kanchanaburi to everyone; one of the highlights of my holiday... i would just suggest staying somewhere other than the Camilia Resort

Room Tip: Room 106 is not a great room----- trust me

Came for a night or two but just about to spend our fifth night here. The location right on the river is wonderful and relaxing and the swimming pool is large and clean. The views from the bedrooms are lovely. The manager was great and the staff were sweet. Food was good. The rooms are simple, no fridge, phone or safe, the bathroom needs updating but it was clean and for the price, 20 quid including breakfast, it was good value.

We have really relaxed here and would recommend it if you want peace and to be near all that kanchanaburi has to offer.

We spent last weekend there and loved both the tranquility of the place as well as the warmth of the staff. Yes the rooms are basic, but we felt like we got what we paid for. I would recommend Camelia!

I stayed there once quite a while back and was funny just reading the recent reviews about the place, sounds even worse. Yes, the breakfast wasn't worth bothering with, the staff not very attentive and I got the feeling that their customer skiils had never been ingrained or taught to them, rooms dirty and plagued with ants (yes spray was needed too).
Redeeming features were the pool and the lovely riverfront location, but that's it. For what they charge and for what you get forget about it !

It was a last place booked for us by G Adventures and although it was very basic it was really cool. As it was our last night with our touring group, we had loads of fun at Camelia Resort. Our room was really, really basic. Bathroom was terrible, tiny and uncomfortable, where you have toilet and shower at once! But it was only for one night... We spent most of our evening in the swimming pool, we were there for hours, having fun, listening to bar music and drinking cocktails. We absolutely loved the swimming pool. Then we had dinner and unfortunately that was a let down as again we were all served at different times :( and must say that the food was not nice. But because the cocktails were perfect and the atmosphere amazing we had a great time!
