We booked the Oriental Kwai Resort due to its great reviews and reasonable price. It is a family-run resort but the service is professional and excellent as other big resorts. The location is great, it is only 15 mins drive from the main tourist attractions ea. the 'Bridge On the River Kwai' and 'War Museum'.
The cottage is good size, clean, well-maintain and nicely designed. The garden is beautiful. The pool looks great but i didn't have a chance to try it. We had dinner at the restaurant on the riverside. Food was great, good price, fantastic atmosphere.
The owner is friendly as well as other staff (even the dogs!). They have a few dogs in the resort, they are cute and some of them were always come and join us while we sitting at the cottage's terrace.
All in all, the only disappoint was we wish we could stay longer. I've been recommending this place to my friends and families. We will return.
