“Wonderful Surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2009

I'd read reviews about lack of English skills in the staff and this is true. The hotel is lovely however and the pool, grounds and the setting next to the river is outstanding and more than compensated us for any language shortcomings. Location is a bit out of town and the 200 Baht tuk tuk fare each way is a bit excessive. Anyone who wants to chill round a beautiful pool for a few days, with comfortable rooms, the odd river trip and journey into town would not find better. Room Internet is exceptionally expensive though, at approx $3.00 for 60 minutes which was the only thing that really ticked me off.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2009

Very big resort at the river with a beautiful garden with lots of different flowers. But I think that would be it for the possitive points. It looks like this resort never modernised. The rooms are old and a bit smelly. The staff is friendly, but have no clue what they are doing. Also opud diner en breakfast were not to good and most of the food we wanted to order they didn't have. I think 10 years ago this resort was veryg good, but nowadays a would prefer another resort in the neighbourhood which are much better.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2008

This hotel has a good location by the river and a promising main building, but the rest was a big disappointment. The rooms are spacious and clean, but the materials and colors shows no sign to be changed since 1980. The bathroom was tiny and dark. Even worse was a very bad smell in the elevator: We preferred to use the stairs. The staff showed either much interest in the guests or neglected them completely.
