A beautiful place in Lampang
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Jan 2013via mobile
The Riverside Guesthouse has the 'wow' factor - it's a series of beautiful teak houses set in a wonderful garden area. The view over the river isn't brilliant but there are plenty of other things to look at on the terrace - during the day we found it a great place to relax and unwind after travelling back from Sukhothai on a rented motorbike.

The bedroom was huge and spotlessly clean. We were very impressed by the attention to detail that had been given to decorating the room - it felt very homely.

Unfortunately we didn't have the best nights sleep but that was mainly due to other guests - definitely not the owners fault - we were kept awake at first by a group of people talking till gone midnight. Normally that wouldn't bother us but they were on the terrace close to our room - to their credit, when my partner went out and asked them to keep the noise down they did. But then the 3 guests in the room above us kept us awake for most of the night. The buildings are old, traditional teak houses and the noise travels through the floorboards so we could hear one of them snoring for most of the night and we could also hear their toilet ablutions - I'm sure you get the picture! It didn't help that they were up at 6am - we could hear everything, even the zippers closing on their luggage! Then to top it all off, the kitchen staff started prepping breakfast at 6.10am - our room (no.19) was on the ground floor next to the kitchen. We gave up - got up, showered, dressed, packed and had an earlier breakfast than planned.

My partner did speak to the owner in the morning to voice our concerns - she was hugely apologetic - it really wasn't her fault and I do want to stress to all you TA''s that the owner is extremely pleasant, helpful and understanding - she even discounted our breakfast by way of an apology.

This was our second visit to Lampang (see review of Auangkham Resort) - I'm really sorry to say that if we were to revisit Lampang, which we loved, we wouldn't return to the Riverside Guesthouse. Instead we'd go back to Auangkham Resort.

I can't give the Riverside a bad score as it was in a good location, clean, facilities were very good, the honesty box for drinks was a nice touch and the owners lovely.

We were lucky enough to get a room just from walking into the guest house after our overnight bus from Bangkok. Staff were very attentive and made the room up very quickly for us so that we didn't have to wait until afternoon to put our things down. Some staff not the friendliest or most welcoming; but the guest house itself is well appointed with nice rooms and a lovely decking area with good wifi.

Found Riverside though LP on a last minute decision to stop here. V glad we did. Apart from the howling dogs it was incredibly relaxing, great staff, pristine room, no fridge but did get complementary water which after a long day was really nice.

Stayed here for 2 nights and found it quiet nice and relaxing. Only thing to complain about is the street noise and thin walls where you can hear your neighbours coming home late night, but nothing a set of ear plugs cant fix. Staff were very helpful with everything and outback area backed onto the river so it gave a nice view also 50m down the road was a great restaurant to eat at offering thai and western foods. Worth while staying here if your in Lampang.

Riverside guest house is a lodging, a homestay style in Lampang. The rooms are decorated based on the original houses in the northern region ("Lanna") style. The location is very convenient. Just next to the walking street area, Kongta street, which is held every Saturday night. The restaurant and shopping areas are in the walking distance.

The rooms are not luxury. They have a feel of northern atmosphere, embedded with a modern style touch. The rooms are based on the structure of the old traditional house styles. There are two typical types, with air con. or no air con. I used to stay there in both types of rooms. The room without air condition is not that bad, if you are not staying in the Summer. The temperature of Lampang is quite comfortable at night. The rooms are small, with local decorations. The bed is fine, but the pillow and blanket is not quite comfortable. The bathrooms are not luxury, quite old and small. But they are clean and sufficient.

The owners are friendly and helpful. They can speak English fluently. So, it's a plus for foreigner travelers. They provide wifi access with no additional cost. The breakfast is lovely. You have to select the breakfast choice, international or Thai style, in advance. The scenes are lovely, the breakfast tables are just next to Wang River.

The best part of this place is price. It's pretty cheap. If the bed amenities are improved, and the bathrooms' conditions are improved, it will be excellent. I think many travelers don't mind to pay a bit more for additional traveling luxury.

Room tip: Don't forget to try omelette with Thai sausage for breakfast....

I stayed for three nights and fell in love with the place. My room had a large bed and a balcony with a lounger and chairs overlooking the river. It wasn't the most quiet - noisy dogs in the yard - but could barely hear any traffic and the traditional teak and colourful decor was worth it. No tv or fridge (which meant my father stayed elsewhere) and some rooms don't have air-con (which I found I needed). The breakfast wasn't cheap but was very tasty and they bring you nice extras like banana jam and bacon/sausage when ordering eggs on toast. You can get better value in Lampang but I doubt you will find anywhere with more charm.

Room tip: One upstairs with a balcony and air con - I think there are three of these.
