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

I spent about 6 nights here and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Keith and his staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent. Rooms and facilities are clean and comfortable. Also, the location is fantastic. I can't wait to go back!

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

Great location, delicious breakfast, clean shared toilets with a pyramid of toilet paper outside, and very friendly and THOUGHTFUL staff. Got us a discount on an elephant tour and helped us deal with an issue we had. Thank you very much to the owner and manager and sorry for the inconvenience.

My girlfriend and I spend 4 nights in Finlays Cottage. The rooms are comfy and extraordinarily clean with good AC. The cleanliness in general has a high priority here so that you can walk around barefoot in the shared showers and toilets. But what makes it so extraordinary here is the staff Keith and Raree. They are so helpful with... More

Staff is so friendly and they don't play scams to tourists. If you have interest in going to some adventures, let them know and they will make the calls and set everything up. They will tell you how much it'll cost and when the bus will be picking you up. BREAKFAST IS AMAZING there..... The main lady will greet you... More

Very central location, decent breakfast included in the price. Everything was great, including Finlay himself (I actually think his name is Keith) who was very helpful and Ratree who organised a day trek for us for a supposed discount (all hostels do this). The one thing I would complain about is that they desperately need new towels, they smell of... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay here but I am concerned with your comments about our towels which are always freshly laundered. If you had said something to me at the time we could have dealt with your complaint. This is the first time any of our guests have had this problem since we've been open so I am surprised.... More

Such a fantastic guesthouse. Nice air conditioned rooms, comfiest bed we've had in Thailand so far, fantastic breakfast, clean communal bathrooms, and friendly owners. The communal breakfast area and layout of the rooms also meant we got to know all the other guests which made for a fun and sociable stay. It's also fantastic value with a central location just...
