We stayed for four nights and loved this guesthouse just out of town. The setting is calm, relaxed and beautiful with lovely decorations tucked into the plants and surroundings. We arrived early from overnight train from Bangkok and our room was ready and we were able to have breakfast and relax for the day. Daphne was so helpful with all... More

Big room, excellent breakfast, Daphne is very helpfull.. Bedroom is very clean. Better deal with Daphne as the husband seems to be bored whenever you ask him something.. Card menu is very small and we had a cashew nut which was I think frozen (cashew nuts not crispy)...but still was fresh and eatable but not a good xperience of thai... More

We stayed for one week with Daphne and Ron in their peaceful and friendly guesthouse. My travelling companion was my mother-in-law, a very spry 85yr old. Arriving on the overnight train from bangkok, we were met by L and his Red taxi, who whisked us off to liams guesthouse. Too early for check in, we were able to have breakfast,... More

We stayed at Liam's guesthouse for five nights and had a great experience. Daphne, the manager, and her staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Her suggestions on places to visit and dine are spot on. She was very helpful with ordering transportation, making reservations, and booking excursions. The breakfast is delicious. I highly recommend the French toast and pancakes.... More

This was our first place to land at the start of our three-month tour of Southeast Asia. It was a lovely place and wonderful oasis for us during our four nights here.

We LOVED this guesthouse. It is removed from the city but the tuk til rides are not expensive and we basically just took two tuk-tuks per day: when into the city and one out of the city. Ron and Daphne can also set up red taxis for tourist destinations like Doi Sutep or the sticky waterfalls or the Hot Springs.... More

We spent out first 7 days in Thailand here at Liams Guesthouse and found it absolutely wonderful. It is out of the city and the air is fresh and we found it very easy to get around with the phone our hosts Daphne and Ron gave us, (never had anyone give us our own phone for our entire stay.

We stayed 6 nights and didn't want to leave! It's close enough to the city centre to be easily accessible by tuk-tuk or taxi but far enough out that you can experience the "real" Chiang Mai. Having only 9 rooms makes for a more personal experience both from the staff as well as interacting with other guests if you want... More
