We planned on staying three nights here but ended up staying six. We were in a river view bungalow overlooking the Nam Khan river. The bungalow was very spacious with one double bed and two more singles for good measure, all with mosquito nets. There are Thai style mattresses on the veranda outside which are perfect for spending a lazy afternoon reading or watching the river. There is no air con, but we found the ceiling fans more than adequate. One thing to be aware of however, is that there are open spaces between the bathroom walls and the roof, so, on a couple of occasions, we were joined in the bathroom by a spider or two. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The family who own the guesthouse even invited us to join them early one mornig to give alms to the monks. Finally, the location of the guesthouse is a bit out of town. There are, however, free shuttle buses that run in the mornings and evenings every hour to and from the centre of town - we ended up doing a mix of shuttle buses (5 min drive), walking (20 mins) and tuk tuks (~30 kip). Overall, we really enjoyed this guesthouse which offers a perfect respite from hustle of town.
