The woodwork was tired but everything was still functional and clean. Visual impressions would suggest this was a romantic setting. However the articulated terraces attached to each cabin are prone to rocking from the wake of the many boats that go by, and emit extremely loud clanging noises – you won’t need to set the alarm for breakfast! A one night stay for the novelty value was sufficient. While this review may sound negative, we had tried other river resorts in Kanchanaburi and this one was the best by a mile.
The house was quite run down, but the ambience is perfect. Relaxing in the middle of mountain along side the river. This is my 3 rd time here. I deduct the star because I want the management to enforce the quite policy outside the room. I want to sit at the deck listening to the sound of river and forest, but end up have to listen to portable stereo from neighbors. It is very upsetting and disturbing!!!
The hotel is in an idyllic setting set in a fast flowing river (rainy season). We had a room towards the end of the walkway far from reception. Service was kind and food was fresh with good quality ingredients. Although the rooms are spacious and have decent aircon, useful mosquito nets around the bed and a powerful shower, it’s the little things which affect comfort: door that doesn’t close properly, gaps to the river between the floorboards (don’t drop an earring!!), lack of convenient power sockets. This is all completely understandable in a rural setting but not quite what is portrayed by the rating and price. Oh, and if these things are important to you, there appear not to be any smoke detectors in the bedrooms (maybe I missed it??) and the fire escape guidance if your way up the jetty is blocked is to don a life jacket and leap into the river.…
An unusual hotel, on the water, fully tethered to land but accessible only by long tail boar. Huge villas, great private decking etc and a typical jungle type restaurant and bar. Good tour options, well serviced, a great place.
This was our 4th visit and it never disappoints. The staff are amazing- kind, caring and professional. The rooms are beautiful, clean and very comfortable. This time I had a massage. It was the best foot massage ever. By the river with an expert at her job 👌🤩
We stayed for two nights. From the pick up to drop off on a long boat the whole experience was excellent. Food was lovely and the service fantastic, our teenagers enjoyed the ‘float’ down river in the current. Our own little decking area to set and watch the boats, humans float by(make sense if you go) and enjoy the sunset was wonderful.
Accommodation ok and enticing. But. Remote location, you rely on hotel for trips and excursions. The adjacent hotels and this hotel all have the same owner, so monopolist price setting in the context of customers that likely don’t return. If you enjoy being shamelessly ripped of, you will have the time of your life.
The Float House was on my list when I was planning to visit. This is a secluded hotel with a very tranquil setting. Its the perfect place to relax and settle in. I love how the rooms all have a swing and a nice deck to enjoy the river. The water in the river is the perfect temperature. I love that they have fish food for 20 baht to feed the local fish. The food at the restaurant is decent but service is a little slow. The room was nice for what it is but could have used a bit more lighting as it was pretty dark inside the room. The shower is an outdoor shower. Bring mosquito spray!! Cons: I absolutely hated all the locks on the doors. They were super difficult to open and lock. The lady at the restaurant told me “no” when I wanted to make a reservation for a table by the water. Then lastly what left a bad taste in my mouth is when I was checking out, I dropped the keys into the river. You will see how easy that is when all the boards have so much space in between for things to fall through. I get that they have to charge me a fee for key replacement. But considering its a cheap lock for the front door, it wouldn’t have cost them more than $2 to buy a new lock and then since the safe in the room uses a key. That was attached, they charged me even more for that. However, they literally used the same key from my friends room to unlock it. For both keys it was about $50.…
What an amazing experience we worried we be bored but no jumping in river and a short walk to nearby pool passed the time . room wonderful, staff excellent the boy on reception could his name been Joe my memory for name terrible seem to appear from no where when ever i needed assistance , the restaurant was great Joy seemed to appear from no where to assist . again all staff n food excellent and not silly money my one and only complaint was beer priced 120b for a small was a little steep but worth it for the atmosphere. wasn't to bad to get to , the local Truck Taxi meet u at station and fixed price to dock , return reception will book a truck to drop you back at station , we will be back , the staff are the biggest credit to this hotel
My travel advisor let me know that despite a written confirmation of dates, they booked it differently and now are not honouring what was written. So be cautious on booking. No more useful guidance to write - really disappointed that my booking was messed up
