This rating is multi-faceted because our family of 5 (3 sons ages 9-13) stayed at Gillham's for a week and fished some of the time and used the resort to launch out for other excursions in the area. I am writing this review primarily for people with children who are thinking of staying there and doing a hybrid vacation of... More

My husband and I have just returned from 2 excellent days fishing at Gillhams which we incorporated into our 20th wedding anniversary Thailand holiday. We were both blown away with the whole experience. As a lady angler who had only ever caught sea fish up to 12 pound before, it was amazing to catch a 70 pound Siamese Carp that... More

We read every review available on this resort , prior to booking 10 days fishing. On arrival in Feb 2015, we were very apprehensive as it sounded too good to be true but believe me, it is very very true. Gillhams Fishing Resort is fantastic. It is great for fisherman who want to catch that big fish or who want... More

Since my first trip to Gillhams in 2010 I've been back every year, the fishing is out of this world with a real chance of catching your own 'River Monster'. The scenery and wildlife are stunning, the restaurant has an extensive menu of Western and Thai dishes and the lakeside accommodation is lovely. There is a beautiful swimming pool which... More

My partner used to go to France a couple of times a year fishing. Although I enjoy visiting him & staying in the bivvy on our local waters, France never really interested me. "Why can't you fish somewhere sunny?" I often asked. When his mate suggested Gillhams Fishing Resort in Thailand I was so excited & we booked straight away.... More

I stayed here for two weeks in December and have to say this was one of the best holidays I have ever taken, The fishery is set in the most stunning location and the quality of fishing more than matches that, The grounds around the lake and bungalows were immaculately kept and the bungalows well fitted all with wonderful views...

The food (UK style) was less than average, including the Thaï dishes that were not comparable to what Thai food can be. Front staff was unpleasant and did not make is at ease in this environment. We had children and they were obviously an annoyance to her... They have caged monkeys and she was explaining that kids cannot try to... More
