This hotel is just across the road from the lake and the rooms are surrounded by beautiful gardens - it is very peaceful and a lovely setting. Ian and Vanessa are very welcoming. We only stayed one night before they organised a car and driver to take us Chiang Kong to join our boat and go down the Mekong .
Vanessa's mother does the cooking and the dinner we had was probably the best meal we had in Thailand this trip. We had a whole fish grilled over charcoal that was stuffed with herbs and served with a garlic and coriander dipping sauce on the side. Pad thai, stirred fried vegetable, soup and dessert rounded out the meal.
