We stayed here for a night too on our trip around north Thailand. It's an international chain hotel run by the Amari group so there is a higher standard than expected from the local hotels, though they do also hire a large percentage of locals including the hill tribes community which is something I appreciate. Just don't have too great expections even through it's a chain hotel as northern Thais are generally very slow and relaxed, and they are not professionally trained waiting staff. One of the waiter hit my mum on the back of her head with a tray as he walked past and didn't apologise, just went on like it was absolutely normal.
The rooms are large and spacious, we booked 2 different types of room - the garden view and mountain view. You pay more for garden view which is a nice landscape just in front of the rooms. I had the mountain view which was not much of a view due to the trees, and I had to climb and extra set of stairs to get to my room. So I would advise to avoid the room 243 - 244 if you are allergic to stairs.
The rooms are large and spacious, a bit of the 80s decoration but what I really loved was the electric blanket. The weather dropped to 10 - 12 degrees celsius at night and the remote-controlled blanket was a godsend. I got the twin bed so my small single bed was warmed nicely, though my parents had the king bed, they said only 1 side of the bed was warmed, so I'm not sure if the system was faulty or not. We only stayed 1 night so we didn't have time to get it checked and rectified.
We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurants. I would definitely recommend their salads and fresh vegetables as they get their produce from the Royal Project nearby and they were so fresh and sweet. The food was really tasty too.
They have quite a large dining area so even though it was high season, we all had a seat and the queues at breakfast were not too bad. Again fruits and vegetables were just so good.
We went to the viewpoint to watch sunset in the morning, so would recommend you check with the reception on this though you have to get your own transport. Ang Khang is famous for their misty morning sunrises. The hotel is also very near to the Royal Project at Ang Khang, it's about THB 50 entry fee per person, lovely gardens with many different variety of flowers.
