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

2nd time staying at this lovely Hotel. Dang and her team can't help you enough, it was a pleasure to stay again. The rooms are spacious, and I recommend a room with a balcony overlooking the pool, which is a tropical paradise. The gardens, right next to the ping river are beautiful, with a lot of interesting plants and ornaments... More

It has been several years since I last stayed at the River View and I was once again delighted with the staff and value. The included breakfast is very good and the rooms are spotless. Despite being an older building, it retains it's charm and the garden and pool overlooking the river are unique. For someone looking for centrally located... More

My wife and I were booked to stay at Galare Guest House at the advice from a friend who had been there a year or so ago. However, they had overbooked, and we were sent over to River View Lodge, which was about double the price (about $45 USD/night rather than $22) without having to increase our rate. Upon arrival,...
