“Fantastic”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

I stayed here in 2010, we stayed in a three birth room over looking the river, and got to watch the sunset everynight. It was well aircon'd and clean throughout. The service was excellent and the food fantastic. I really enjoyed my time in the provence and would definitly stay here again. It was great to stay on a floating raft which rocked gently! We were even collected by the hotel on our arrival on the train from Bangcock! Brilliant!

I really enjoyed this place even though the rooms were a little tired - I just loved the idea of being on a raft on the river Kwai. Unfortunately all the riverside rooms were taken - understandably, but I still really felt at home in my room. First time I've seen a clothes aired in a room so made use of that, and really enjoyed sitting on the balcony . Saw some reptile swimming past. Bed was clean and comfortable. The guy who runs it is quite quiet/shy but extremely helpful. Food is ok and the restaurant has a beautiful view. Would happily return to VN. They also rent bikes here. Wonderful chilled atmosphere at this place.

We haven't actually stayed in VN Guesthouse, because they were overbooked. We ended up in some other raft guesthouse which was really crap and we got very disappointed. Next morning we came back to VN and asked if we could leave there our bags (we didn't like that other place) and the staff was more than friendly and helpful! They let us leave our stuff, use their wifi, rented bikes for free (to make up for the overbooking). They even droped us later at a bus station.
The food was very nice and the staff was great. If we're gonna be back in Kanchanaburi, we're gonna come back to VN for sure :)

Great value guesthouse. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Food is spot on with ample refreshments! Great views as the river laps at your raft. Only slight let down was the rooms, they could have done with a refurbishment. But for the price you pay it is brilliant.

I would come here again, definitely. Everything went smoothly. The room was nice, and the atmosphere at the restaurant is beautiful, right on the river. The food was delicious, with good sized portions, and it was very cheap. It is also off the main road so it is nice and quiet, a solid place to stay.

Giving a thumbs up for no suprises. Solid price for product.
Food here is by far better than most I have had in my 30 day stay. 25 minute walk from bus stop if you want the local experiance ;)
We will use again.
Thank you VN Staff.

Nice location on the river with beautiful views from the bar/restaurant. Especially nice sunset. Food and drinks are good and cheap.
staff was ok, but not the thai hospitality you would expect at such a place. Our raftroom had a nice view but the hygiene could be better. No cleaning during our stay and we saw some bugs in the bed.
