Really enjoyed our stay here. Rooms were nice & clean, as were the communal area and toilets/showers. Really like the communal area as it was good for meeting people and had a nice atmosphere at breakfast (which was also really tasty). Both people were really helpful whenever we needed it and so chilled out! I would definitely recommend it. Good... More

Keith and the lady were very helpful and gave us a lot of advice on our travel plans to cross over the boarder to Laos. We originally booked to stay 1 night but ended up staying for 3 in total as we didn't realise how much there was to do and see. I would defiantly recommend Finley's cottage. There is... More

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
