There was not so much to enjoy about really. The breakfast was average, the rooms below average (we stayed at a double room), the atmosphere had not a wow factor either and it was a bit overpriced. The pool was not cleaned and though the river view was good when we came down to the river the sewer went straight... More

The highlight is the nice location next to river kwai, esp from restaurant, proximity to steel bridge, train station and market (not as good as kanchanaburi night market), nice pool, nice decor, clean rooms, great air con and wifi. The downside is the staff who are friendly but have a bored attitude in dealing with visitors. Maybe its the heat... More

We only stayed one night but it was a lovely place set on the river overlooking the bridge, rooms were great, pretty good value too. We also did a visa run to the Myanmar border and the staff were very helpful and sorted it out for us.

We stayed here on the first night of our tour of northern Thailand, so the hotel was chosen for us. Having read previous reviews we were somewhat sceptical, even more so when we saw 5 Russian coaches in the car park. Our room, overlooking the river was a long walk from reception so the porters earned their tip. Our room... More

This small private hotel is wonderful. Friendly, helpful staff - they will call a taxi or tuk-tuk for you. At Reception there is a small shop for items, drinks & beers plus an ice-cream freezer. Open air dining & restaurant wonderful to view the bridge over the River Kwai. Plenty of food at breakfast time and enjoyable dining at night... More

Usual good mix of nationalities, decent front desk service,nice pool with masseuses. Breakfast decent enough but real point of it is the restaurant being situated riverside; watching life go by and listening to nature was great. Rooms adequate but gaps around doors mean close the door-curtains or spray room before going out in evening. Got charged for a broken glass... More

The resort is located only abot 300-400 metrs from the Kwai bridge in a green area and at the river bank. You can see the bridge while relaxing or sitting at the dining room. The river bank view and the green resort is a worth while accomodation. The rooms are quite average but who cares when enjoying the nature and... More

I was staying in Kanchanaburi to discover the history of my Father's time as a POW working on the Death Railway in 1942/43. My program organiser arranged for me to stay at the River Kwai Resort as it was directly opposite the site of what was the main camp of POW's in 1942-45 and a place where my father was... More
