“Peaceful and beautiful resort near the old city of Sukhothai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I stayed two nights in the Legendha. The welcome was warm and to my surprise by an American who works in the reception. The staff were friendly and the location was beautiful. Only the restaurant staff did not understand our special meal requests. The hotel is located in a peaceful spot just near to the old city of Sukhothai. Hotel offers cheap bicycles (70 Bahts day) for touring around the Unesco world heritage site, which is the ideal way of seeing the sights as they are located within 5 miles from each other. The breakfast was especially luxurious. The room and cozy and clean. We slept were peacufully.

Dear Shantatma,

Thank you for your recent stay with us and also your valuable feedback and compliment to our staff.

I wish you enjoyed your biking to the Sukhothai Historical Park - world's heritage by UNESCO. We are one of the closest hotel to the remarkable world heritage site with the distance of less than 1 km.

Thank you for give us your compliments to our food. We are actually the most popular authentic Thai restaurant in the province and Sukhothai people know us very well.

We look forward to welcome you back to The Legendha Sukhothai Boutique Resort in the near future.

Kindest regards,

Owner

This hotel cost a bit more than what we usually spend per night but it was definitely worth it to splurge. Beautiful resort with a lovely pool and rooms very spacious and nicely decorated. Our train arrived very late (around 1am) and I was worried that nobody would be around to check us in at such an hour. So I was very happy to see one of the staff members expecting us once we got there around 2am.
Great location very close to the temple ruins and easily accessible either by walking or on bicycle. The breakfast was very good as well. We only stayed one night (actually more like 1/2 night) but we were able to store our luggage and use the pool the next day while waiting for another overnight train. Had a great experience overall, the staff was super friendly and I would certainly stay here again if I were ever to return to Sukhothai.

My già and found this hotel quite by chance but I must say that this is an autentic treasure!
The colourful rooms, the beautiful swimming pool, the lights in the nights, the kind staff, free wi fi, the close site...in other words, everything was perfect!

We stayed for one night in the Legendha while visiting the ruins in Sukhotai. The hotel has all the possibilities to be a 5star resort. Lovely picturesque environment, modern lodges, nice pool (although a bit small).

Unfortunately though the hotel is ran like a hostel. Counting flaws:
- Obviously the pool was never checked by anyone since all the women that with dyed hair turned up green
- The safety measures for the pool are not by any means met as one kid in front of us was sucked in the hole and almost got drowned.
- Our room whilst seemed clean had filthy bed sheets which took more than 60mins to change (the communication barrier being the main factor - zero english from 95% of the people working there)

Its really a pity because if this hotel was managed professionally it would become an excellent destination

Room Tip: definitely check your bed sheets...

Thank you for your opinion. We knew that you upset from the bleach of your dye hair color and you think it was because of our pool. From our thorough investigation of your stay, please let us clarify the fact so that people do not misunderstand.

- Swimming Pool
The pool system we are using is the international standard pool system using in luxury hotels around the world. If you experienced this in our hotel, you should get the same problem elsewhere. Our pool is also a salted one, not chlorine. Thus there is also no harmful chemical.

Additionally we have served several thousands of people and there has never been such problem. We consulted the pool consultant and developer. They also agreed that it is barely possible as such.

We can guarantee that what happened to your hair was not from our pool. It could be caused by a number of reasons such as the quality of the dye color you had prior.


- Safety
The hole you mentioned is very small with only 2 inch diameter and only two HP in the adult pool which is only 1.40 meters depth. This hole is for water circulation system so the power is weak and barely impossible to harm anyone. The system we are using is the same with pools in other hotels.


- People
Our staff in Reception, waiter & waitress, Manager and other positions which need to interact with guests, can communicate in English. There should be no problem as our majority of guests are English speakers.


We wish you realize the possibility that these are not the actual causes of your experience. From our thorough investigation as mentioned above, our pool is totally normal and harmless. That’s the guarantee.


Thank you for your comment.


Warmest regards,

The Legendha Sukhothai Management

Rooms lack privacy so you have to keep the curtains closed if you don't want people to peek inside. Try to get a room away from the pool if you want peace and quiet.
We stayed here twice: were very happy the first time but didn't enjoy our stay just as much the second time as many more guests were staying there so pool and restaurant got overcrowded.
Breakfast is like in all the major hotels in Thailand but they also serve delicious coconut pancakes.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Overall a very good hotel, especially with a small number of other guests.

Years ago we stood in this hotel and it was rather basic. In the meantime they refurbished it and changed the name and now it is a really lovely place to stay (this time we stood for 8 days).
The staff is very friendly and helpful and most speak some English (at the reception they speak fluently English). The rooms are not very large but very clean, nicely painted and pleasantly furnished. There is an extra mosquito net door to the balcony, so, during night, you can enjoy the pure landscape air from outside. The hotel is at walking distance (30 min) from the Ancient Sukhothai (but very far from the New Sukhothai). Breakfast and food are excellent (except one time when the hotel was overcrowded with students). The pool is well kept and long enough to preperly swim (as long as there are not too many persons in it).

What a charming hotel in Sukhothai. The breakfast was one of my favorites in Thailand. Please try the little coconut pancakes. The rooms are a nicely appointed, the bed a little hard and the bathroom rustic. Though that is where you are and the price is right. Service was impeccable.
