The Garden Lodge arranged for a car to collect us from downtown Bangkok. This was expensive at 6400baht return but we were short on time,
On arrival our driver took us to proudly show us the swimming pool - it was empty! Woops!
The deluxe room we requested was large and clean but basic. A single duvet on a double bed nearly touched the edges but it was fine for the one night we were staying.
Although we had only booked the room for one night and we were heading back to Bangkok after a full days treck through the park(organised by the Garden Lodge) we were told we could use the room to freshen up after our treck at 7pm before leaving.
The bathroom had shampoo and soap but small towels. Very feeble shower in bath with inline water heater which we couldn't get to work (but only discovered this minutes before leaving on a treck and checking out)
The food was good, plentiful and tasty but please, please don't ask for wine. With our evening meal we asked for a bottle of ? and when it eventually came it was only three quarters full. Apparently that was all they had (despite being given a wine list to look at) and it tasted as if it had been open for weeks (probably since the last mug asked for a glass of wine!)
The Garden Lodge offers 2 tours - a half day and a full day. We did both on our overnight stay. The guides both spoke good English and we were exceptionally lucky with our wildlife spotting. Alas no tigers, but plenty elephant, wild dogs and birds.
