Do you plan to bring your own car to Lampang or already have a car and driver arranged in advance? If you choose to stay at Lampang River Lodge, you can't expect any reliable transportation, including public transport or privately-owned taxis.
The property is over 8 km from the city center so this hotel is for you if you don't want to be in the heart of Lampang and want nothing else around you. There are no reliable public transport options and the hotel staff, while sweet and friendly, have virutally no resources at their disposal to arrange for transport to and from the city center. This is not due to lack of effort-- in one instance a young staff member spent over 30 minutes trying to get us a taxi and finally resorted to calling one of his personal contacts to assist. The facility has no hotel shuttle vehicle so you are left to chance on whether or not you can get to and from the place each time you venture out. Each trip to the city center averages 400 baht each way (around $12) so bring plenty of cash for transportation.
As for the facility itself, the common grounds on the property are well-maintained and staff seem to be working throughout the day to upkeep the pleasant surroundings and landscape. The bungalow-style rooms were a bit worn and had a musty smell disguised by discenfectant. The shower stall was in desperate need of an upgrade with rusty faucets and bare-pressure shower head.
Overall the experience was not horrible but will agree with others reviewer that the rooms were way overpriced for what you get.
