Great experience all around. Daphne was terrific helping us plan fun local excursions, including a waterfall we could climb and swimming at floating house. She cheerfully arranged drivers and helped us make plans and find great local restaurants. The pool and breakfast area felt like a private villa escape away from the Chiang Mai city craziness and it was easy... More

Daphne and Ron made our 5-night stay in Chiang Mai a true vacation -- putting the "home" in homestay. Their understated and easy nature belie how hard they work to make guests feel completely comfortable including offering whatever is needed without pushing anything. The guesthouse is a little outside of the old city and the throngs of people, but for... More

We stayed at this great Guesthouse twice (before and after doing the 'Mae Hong Son loop') and can only recommend it. The rooms are spacious, spotless clean, tastefully decorated and contain a lot of amenities (i.e. fridge, kettle, air condition, fan, side boards, stereo equipment, hair dryer and even a guidebook on Chiang Mai with good recommendations and helpful information). ...

We arrived from the overnight train to Chiang Mai and had arranged through the guest house to be picked up for a very fair price and an excellent driver in a red taxi (which is a pickup with a covered canopy to sit in). It was great. We were greeted by one of the owners and shown to our room... More

I booked this as a result of its rating on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed! It is about a 10min tuktuk ride from the town centre - and it's a fabulous escape. The rooms are very comfortable and being a small guesthouse, it's far more intimate than staying at a hotel. Daphne was fabulous - great information and always around... More

We booked this place through booking.com and because of the time of year I didn't have that much to select. Actually I had book something previously in Chiang Mai main town but decided to cancel because of the reviews and then book Liam's place here. Honestly this place was great. I would have to say for the price, this place... More

I have to say, for the price, this place is top notch! It's the same quality that you get from a 4 star hotel but for guesthouse prices. When I arrived super late with my wife and son after a long road trip from the south, they were very understanding and accommodated us even though we never booked online prior.... More

I booked this amazing place via booking.com for 5 days and frankly it was only after I stayed there I realize what a great choice I made. Dahpne and her husband, Ron (owners of the guesthouse) were amazing people, always there attending to their guests. Such a private and cosy place. We have loved our stay there. Everything was superb.... More

We loved our stay at Liam Suk's guest house. Daphne was the perfect hostess always making time to speak to guests and making top recommendations for our excursions. We have already recommended it to other people we met in the rest of our trip - it was great being just outside Chiang Mai, great local restaurants, fantastic barber and MAM's... More

A delightful family run place located away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The rooms are done in thai style and very comfortable. Daphne and Ron are amazing hosts and so are the other staff. A special mention about Tu who is always around with a lovely smile. Great breakfast of french toast, eggs cereal served everyday. Since... More
