Quiet and peaceful yet a few minutes walk from the main areas. Owners are very nice. The breakfast is good, and is served at the reasonable hour of 10am. The walls were a little thin, but the room came with a towel, a/c, a desk, and black out curtains to keep the room pitch black. Wish I could have stayed... More

Really enjoyed staying at Finay's Cottage. I had trouble sleeping at other guesthouses due to the noise, hardness of the beds and cleanliness. Finlay's cottage is great if you want to be close to the city but want a quiet area. The staff is friendly and breakfast is included with your stay which is always a positive. The rooms are... More

The owner switches the internet off at midnight so you'll have no connection until the morning. When I asked the owner why it is being switched off he said "because I feel like it", which I felt was extremely rude. I had no connection with my family and couldn't do any bookings for the further part of my trip. This... More

Actually we do not turn the internet off at midnight. On the night in question the router was overheating and I turned it off for safety reasons. I attempted to explain this in the morning to no avail. Regardless, please be assured that the internet will be running 24/7 despite rumours to the contrary. More

Really nice rooms with shared but clean bathrooms and a great breakfast in the morning. It's just some minutes away from the center but really quiet there. Unfortunately we could not stay longer, because it was fully booked. Would definetely go there again!

Stayed a couple of nights here based on the reviews. The owners and staff are extremely helpful and friendly, helping us book trips as well as offering advise on what to see, how to get around and even on what locals use to ease mosquito bites. The rooms were a good size and we stayed in the main house, unfortunately... More

This place truly felt like home while I was in Chiang Mai. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from downtown, and whenever I wanted to do a tour of some kind, the owner was very helpful in getting it arranged. I never felt like I was being squeezed for money, they just wanted you to have a... More

This was a lovely guesthouse. The owner Keith is very friendly and very helpful. The bacon at breakfast is lovely!! None of the streaky bacon! Stayed here two nights and one of the nicest places to stay in Chiang Mai. Really good value! Check out the pyramid of toilet roll as well!!

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. After staying at the clinical 'lets get as much money out of your possible' green tulip guest house, it was nice to stay at a place which felt so homely. All the rooms were clean and with air con and the breakfast was massive for what you pay. It is in a great... More
