Like a long beloved coat, this property is nicely worn but actually burnished with considerable care and consideration. I was very happy to find it, its home-like comfort, clean rooms, attentive and friendly service, and wonderful garden still in business since my last visit 20+ years ago. For people who do not need to revisit the bustle of Chiang Mai... More

Okay, before I start writing MY review I just want to clear a little bit up about what has been said by those who have given poor reviews...I have noticed that all the poor reviews are from several years ago and from what I've experienced at this hotel in December 2014... a LOT has changed - for the better!

The gardens are like mine - nothing fancy, but lots of interesting plants. It feels like staying in a family home. A restful place to stay for a week, away from the noise of traffic, with a nice pool overlooking the river.

We spent a night here in August, a family of four. Our room was ready and we were able to check in as soon as we arrived, which was great as we arrived early in the morning off the overnight train. The pool was small but pleasant and the riverside location and lovely gardens gave the place a great feeling.... More

The rooms are basic, pretty much a bed and a shower, but the surrounding gardens are lovely. The hotel is a bit tucked away and it feels very peaceful and relaxing - an easy place to relax and forget about the rest of the word. There is a simple breakfast served in the garden but no evening meals. The location... More

Imagine being a guest of a wealthy merchant family at their country house redolent with their clan's and their city's history over the decades and you have a sense of Riverview Lodge. High ceilinged rooms are non-fussy and scrupulously clean. Riverview is presided over by efficient, low-key, courteous and helpful staff at all hours. Book extra days so you don't... More

If you are travelling back in time! An antique furnished Thai style lodge. Very nicely decorated. Everthing can be purchaced. The garden is amazing! Every inch is worthwhile! You can't stop exploring :-) Pool is clean and a good place to relax. Rooms clean and spacious. They didn't serve diner. Only breakfast and easy lunch.

Authentic Thai style to the place with great knick knack decor around the place. The rooms were basic with small vanity but fine for a couple. Staff friendly and location not far from town centre. Best feature defiantly the pool overlooking the river. Great for a beer or two!

We stayed here for 4 nights in March, it is a simple but adequate hotel on the river front as the name suggests. The rooms are basic but comfortable with options of rooms on the front over looking the lovely gardens and river. The hotel is well located - about 10 minutes by tuk tuk out of the old city... More

Rooms are of a good standard, owners are really friendly and helpful. Close to the night bazaar. The gardens are beautiful, over looking the river ping. My children enjoyed exploring the garden and really enjoyed the pool. I enjoyed relaxing in the pavilion. Truly lovely place to stay, and will be first port of call on next visit to chang... More
