Unpleasant experience with this hotel. The hotel owner scolded us in front of all other guests with high-pitch and emotional words and hurt our pride badly. This is not a healthy practice between guest and owner. HOW THIS HOTEL DESERVED THE AWARD BY TRIPADVISOR? Besides that, the hotel hygiene practice is terrible. The floor was sticky with some unknown substance.... More

The room's floor was oily and there were lots of mosquitoes flying around. Quite frustrated with the attitude shown by the staff/ owner of this guest house where they made us feel unfriendly. I was waken up by the train's sound every night and early morning and this was extremely distasteful! Not every room could receive stable and strong wifi...

Bad customer service with unfriendly owners! Bad environment with a lot of mosquitoes! Owner's wife likes to show her emotional face to customer! Besides that, due to the hotel is near by the railway! So, it is sounds polluted when a train pass by!

Our second visit to the excellent donkeys rest.

The place itself is a bus ride away from the main town but this was not a problem fro us. There are plenty of places to eat in the area and there is a plaza nearby. The pool was the best and this was the main reason for staying. The rooms are clean and had a fridge and coffee etc... More

The hotel's owners are unpleasant, they just don't care about their "guests", the woman is quite rude and the man just ignores the customers. I live in Bangkok and this woman is the worst hotel's owner I've ever met in Thailand, she's very irritating. The rooms are very simple (no decoration), but they are large and clean. The bed is...

We booked here for 11 nights based on the reviews on tripadviser. We have a lot of mixed feelings for the place and the owners. The rooms were spacious and were clean. They were serviced every day and bedding and towels were changed every 3 days or so which was fine. I personally found the bed too hard and the... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Donkey's Rest.The owners were friendly. The pool is just next to the hotel, but it's public. In the late afternoon there are a lot of people, but they clean it every morning. The room was giant and clean. We had actually an apartment. The location is okey, there are a lot of very nice...
