We stayed there in 2 Nov 2009 when it was just open, we understand the situation, the management are learning from their faults. Rooms was ok and the kids are enjoying themselves. The room service need to be improve as it takes and hour to send our meals to the room. When the meals arrive, they forgot the tissue, sauce... More

The location of the hotel was quite far from the city, around 20 minutes drive. The scenery along the road is quite breathtaking, although winding most of the way - single carriageway. Early booking is recommended especially when you need more than 1 room and during peak periods. The rooms are average with with queen sized bed or two singles.... More

Quite good for gateaway with your family. A simple resort but yet it accommodate with swimming pool and for those who love fishing should come and stay overnight. My favourite tomyam soup. MUST TRY!! there is a space for kids activity so that we can send off them to play as well.

got a room with dusty bedsheets, broken lamp and leaky aircon! no one came to fix it! talked to the supervisor and we got moved to another room. All we got was an extended checkout time. I dont really think 2pm is an 'extended' check out time. Other hotels offer until 6pm! Oh and the food is cheap, but TERRIBLE!... More

Clean simple rooms with a wonderful river view! Don't forget to bring yr fishing rods while you're here cos there's plenty of fish to catch. For those who prefer eating then catching the in-house restaurant provides delicious meals at reasonable prices.

This is a quaint set up designed to resemble water village houses and the design works well. This place is a budget or middling option and if you're getting prices comparable to luxury hotels then don't come here. What recommends it is simple rooms (rather like being onboard a houseboat), a great restaurant attached and - of course - the... More

I spend one night at this place and i found it nice and interesting. This is a good place if you are fishing enthusiast. You can either fish at the pond or by the river itself near your room. The food are nice and yummy especially the 'ikan bakar' with local sauce 'sambal belacan'. Personally i really recon to those... More
