“nice and friendly beyond your expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2011

I felt warmly welcome as soon as i looked in the smiling face of the lady behind the reception. After a sleepless noisy night in a dirty room in another guest house next door i was so happy to see this nice clean bungalow in the backyard of the restaurant. 

Since i am a working traveler i appreciated the free wifi a lot and used it during my meals in the restaurant. The food was outstanding and even the breakfasts are one of the bests i've ever had in Thailand. After 2 pleasent nights i decided to head over to Chiang Mai with the 11 am bus for 218 baht. On the half way to the first stop in Tak i recognized that i forgot to collect my purse and some important paper that i deposited in the "safe box" with my check in. 

After same thoughts of planning returning to Sokhuthai after some days i decided that it would be better to return to collect my stuff. As soon as i mentioned my plan to the Bus stuardess everybody in the Bus and on the Pak bus terminal got in the "take care mode" and arranged the courier service for my stuff from the Garden House to the bus terminal. The kind lady from The Garden House offered to bring my envelope to the Sukothai Bus Terminal to hand it to a Bus company that will have a bus to where i am. 

Outstanding service ... no charge asked at any time ... only smiles and khoap khun khraps. 

I tipped some involved helpers and was happy to be on my trip with all my stuff without thinking about how and when to get the 350 km back from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2010

i had a good feeeling from the moment my tuk-tuk dropped me off at this pre-booked guest house in Sukhothai, home of the famous Loy Kathong festival. The friendly greeting and subsequent welcome were initial evidence of a very well run but low key guest house.
My accomodation was in a lovely wooden hut in a tranquil garden well away from the road
The staff have a wealth of knowledge. most though is also posted on useful notice boards. The restaurant is good. There is usually a tuk-tuk waiting outside and the major bus stopmfor the old city is maybe 200 metres away.
