The service and staff are fantastic. However, good people can only take you so far. The rooms are very tired as is the whole place. The breakfast was no better than average, with very limited choice for europeans. This hotel is not expensive around £50 per night, but compared with others in the area no cheaper and certainly not as... More

I enjoyed staying at the Felix River Kwai resort verry much . The staff there were all very friendly and intuitive to the needs of the guest. Norma, the customer service manager was especially helpful in planning day trips and giving information on places of interest, bus schedules and taxi service information.

Hotel was situated in a lovely location, the view from our balcony was beautiful and the hotel room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, had a lovely meal in the restaurant, breakfast was very good. Used the spa facilities and the staff were lovely and the massage was great. Would recommend this hotel.

This resort is absolutely gorgeous! We could not believe what good value it was. Our room was enormous, with a huge porch/balcony to match. There were 2 large pool areas, spa, couple of restaurants, lovely scenery, great food and customer service. The staff let us keep our bags in reception for the whole day when we checked out. Wonderful.

Nice setting, well kept gardens and pools, good rooms, next to the river with stunning views, but ... we were almost alone! Some staff were doing their best to make us feel at home, but in general a rather desolated place. The bar was only serving cocktails, no beer, coffee or other drinks. And in the restaurant there was a... More

This was a top-flight resort in the sixties…. Which is to say, it comes from a style of years past. Located in a park-like setting across the river from the town of Kwai, the grounds are beautifully landscaped. They have two swimming pools, and lovely paths to wander and flowers to photograph. From one edge of the property, you can... More

The hotel is in 3 storey blocks spread over a large site. Less than fit visitors should ask for ground floor rooms near reception. No lifts. At night a torch is helpful. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, if dated. The restaurant and bar areas are attractive and though pleasant surroundings service is far from professional. At dinner 3 of... More

A one night stay at this hotel, en route to destination further south. The rooms are in blocks, very spaced out, so you have a bit of a trek and can be difficult in the dark. The rooms are perfectly adequate - nothing to complain about. Meals, I had a really excellant steak in the restaurant, but the breakfast buffet... More

If you are looking to go back in time to the late 1980s/90s this is the place for you. The hotel needs a complete overhaul. The televisions are old box tube TVs, the wifi comes and goes (we moved room as wifi did not work at all in our first room). The bathrooms need modernising. Hotel is a little far... More

This hotel, faded grandeur, is all about its location. On the banks of the River Kwai, set in wonderful gardens with 2 pools (1 free-form & 1 for serious lapping), minutes walk away from the end of the bridge over the river.....for which, please note, we mean the non-tourist side where only those who don't have vertigo & aren't worried...
