Property is close as it gets to the Bridge Over River Kwai about a 5 minute walk. The property has seen better days but it's still clean and the staff are friendly. The bungalows are definitely in need of a makeover. Iam 6'5" and the door to our bathroom was about 5' high good for a Thai but be careful... More

I booked this hotel online, on arrival very friendly staff. Stayed in a small bungalow, very beautiful surroundings. The bungalow typical Thai, very clean, wifi, tv, lovely bedroom and bathroom. The restaurant is set on the river and the bridge is in the background. Breakfast is very good. The staff serving were really helpful and when the restaurant was closed... More

Very pleasant resort with helpful staff and well priced and good restaurant food. The hotel is located right on the River Quai and consists of small semi detached and detach bungalows as well a two storey block small block of rooms. The bungalows are arranged on either side of a small road leading down to the river and restaurant. There... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of April. The room was great for the money, staff were good too. The restaurant has an excellent view of the legendary bridge over the Kwai. Breakfast was reasonable, dinner wasn't bad either, not sure about the frog curry though, too many bones! 😃 You can walk to the bridge in... More

We stayed in the bugalows, rooms are clean and a good size. Air con efficient and quiet when running. Swimming pool great for kids. Restaurant serves good food, but wear long trousers as there are many mosquitoes.

The resort is lovely and they make you really feel the love. We arrived after the Elephant Bamboo Trekking tour and were so pleased and welcomed with open arms. You won't be sorry for visiting the country side.

The hotel itself is quite ok for the money - clean rooms, nice grounds, handy location to the bridge and other attractions. We booked a Riverview Room which indeed has a very of the river certainly not riverfront though. The main thing reason why I won't use this hotel again is the restaurant staff were just strange and unhelpful. After... More

I stayed here as part of a large group - so room rate was very good. The location is excellent for visiting the famed (reconstructed) Bridge on the River Kwai - less than 10 mins walk away and the Allied and Japanese memorials/museums. Right on the river the restaurant/bar did struggle to cope with our group (of 80), but apart... More

We stayed at River Kwai Bridge Resort for 3 nights on our stay in Kanchanaburi. The place is lovely and quiet. We stayed in one of their hotel rooms rather than a bungalow. I would probably recommend the bungalow if you're going to be staying there longer. The front desk staff were not overly friendly, but when we had a... More

We stayed for two nights here and from the beginning there was very little of a welcome to guests. At check-in the attitude was as if we were a bother to the staff and similarly again at check out. There was very little assistance in the way of local transport, phone calls or contacting tour companies. This was quite a... More
