Reviewed 7 April 2014

We didnt have booking and found just random. Tamarind guesthouse is lovely place with nice view and quiet athmosphere. We had raft house room, rooms are quit basic, but clean and pleasant. Staff was so friendly, it is family guesthouse. I recommend!

Stayed just one night and took the 700 Baht room (Number 15). Nice clean room with many channels cable TV, air, hot shower, and your own private balcony overlooking the river which was very nice to chill and drink/read etc..
The people there make you feel welcome and were kind enough to allow me to park my car next to the reception (I say kind as there's just enough space to park one car down there without blocking the other guests access).
The fan rooms also look good at 350 Baht (no TV) but are right opposite reception (all the ratf rooms were taken so not sure what they are like).
Little in the way of facilities on site but a 1 min walk to road and there's bars and restaurnats on your doorstep and the Jolly Frog restaurant next door for good cheap Thai and foreign food.

Room Tip: Room 15 is a one off and the dearest there ..but worth it.

Stayed here over a holiday weekend (Buddha day and valentines day). Was one of the only places with rooms. Got one for 500 baht on the river with A/C which was good value.

Had a light blow and staff didn't seem too keen to replace, unfortunately it seems it was the fitting as well as the bulb,so without light for the rest of the evening. No biggie though, I've run a guest house so know what its like with Thai electrical systems.

Signs all around to respect neighbours and not be loud, which is nice, except the neighbours insist on playing Thai Karaoke all day which well, kind of destroys the beauty of the river, having to listen to poorly eqed sound systems and the wails of tone deaf Thai women.
To top it all off the wonderful couple next door got into a massive fight and we had to listen to them argue over whether or not he was going to leave her for a hooker up on the main street. Lovely stuff.

They don't have any food, or drinks available either, but there are plenty of places just down the road. Bikes are available to hire at 50 Baht, motorbikes not available, even though they advertising them. Bikes are all you need if you are on a day or two trip.

So yeah, nice place, just a pity about the guests and neighbours. I'd still stay here again, as that sort of stuff is hit and miss and can't be controlled by the owners.

Room Tip: Go for the river side rooms/floating rooms - these are great as long as there are no drunks in the r...

We stayed here over New Years 2013/2014. It is very clean and had basic but comfortable accomodations. We had the end room in the main building across from the main desk. I read about some people saying it was noisy, we didn't have that problem at all. I found it to be very quiet. Awesome location either way. Right in the middle of the bars and restaurants.

I will point out that we did reserve a room and when we showed up they did not have our reservation. We were lucky enough to get the last room but did have to move once during our stay to make room for another reservation. Luckily both rooms were good. This could hav ebeen bad if we had not lucked out.

Friendly staff, good location, nice rooms.

This place looks beautiful and pretty good value. However, after having travelled thousands of miles they decided to give away our room without even trying to contact us.

No apology - they even suggested it was our fault.

Eventually found another room for double the price and not on the river at the owner's friend's guesthouse - smelled a bit like a scam.

A very disappointing start to our holiday.
