A return stay at GTR and there have been some improvements and new buildings and access road being sealed so even better. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Rooms simple but comfy with free wifi and aircon. Pool is nice for cool off after a day at golf or sightseeing. Cafe down by the river is pleasant with breeze. Great central loc handy to all sorts of cafes, restaurants and bars.

Stayed here as a base for exploring hellfire pass and area. Still building next door but was not a problem Reception on arrival very helpful and friendly we wanted to tour ourselves as there was 4 of us got to to arrange an air con car with "Bird" our driver for 1900 baht went to erewan falls and pass on sameday Bird even came with us to different levels of the falls but thats another story. Rooms were a great price good size, air con and peaceful considering we were in middle of town, nice breakfast overlooking river and pool was good to cool off in. Special mention to reception staff arranging trips and getting us minibus back to Bankok extremely helpful with a good command of english. Highly recommended.

Although there was still some building going on we never had any problems with that. The staff is great and always helpful! Rooms are nice and spacious too. Restaurant is next to the river and the food is good too! Definitely a recommendation!

We stayed in the Good Times Resort for 3 nights as it was recommended by their tour agency. We had a lovely time and everything was just perfect. The location is lovely right on the river and our room although they said it was small was good and very reasonably priced. For a little extra they then upgraded us to one of the rooms overlooking the lake which was even better. The swimming pool is a lovely addition.
The staff are all so helpful and gave us recommendations, helped us book trips and did it all with smiles. The food is so good we ate there twice. We would have stayed longer but our itinerary didn't give us time. We are not youngsters so it was lovely to find something with a bit of luxury but still good value.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: If you have the budget the larger rooms overlooking the lake are lovely.

We family of 2 adults and 2 children (13,10) stayed at Good Times Resort for 4 nights. We booked the 2 connecting rooms, located on the ground floor and next to the pool. Rooms looked modern, were spacious and clean. The restaurant has a beautiful view on the River Kwai, we really enjoyed having our meals here. The restaurant served good food and had enough choice on the menu (Thai or Western).

Staff was friendly. However, communication could be a little bit better. One day there was a cooking class at the restaurant and there was no lunch served. We would have appreciated knowing this in advance.
Also the story for the minivan service to Bangkok kept changing. First we were being picked up at the hotel and the next day we had to take a taxi to the bus station. The minivan was supposed to go every 30 minutes, but we ended up waiting for more than an hour at the bus station.

Despite these annoyances I do recommend this hotel.

We spent 3 nights at the resort last week. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The rooms are basic but decent. The pool is small but quiet and refreshing. The restaurant serves decent food at a good price. Irene, the front desk attendant was amazing. Very knowledgable, friendly and always helped us out when we needed anything. She is probably the biggest asset to the resort.
Like people have mentioned, the location is good and you can walk to points of interest quit easily.
Yes, the resort is still under construction, but it did not affect out stay.
The one thing I didn't like was our bathroom. It did not come with a "shower stall". There was just a shower head to the right of the toilet with no curtain, or divide separating it...so whenever we would shower our toilet would get wet. Not a fan of that.
Would I recommend the resort?..most likely.

A beautiful and modern resort, close to the main attractions of Kanchanaburi. Friendly and helpful staff. The resort is clean and well maintained with and excellent swimming pool. The food at the restaurant is above average. Bookings can be made by internet.

Room Tip: The rooms near the pool are excellent.
