We have been visiting the Boathouse since 1992 either to stay or to dine.Our visit in June
was the latest and as delightful as usual.
We have to jump to the defence of the Boathouse in regard to the alleged theft incident.Whilst sympathising with the guests who lost thier valuable items it is hard to believe that a staff member would be responsible less still that it was dealt with badly.
The charm, efficiency and help from the staff are one of premier reasons for staying at the Boathouse,several have been there for many years, and prize thier jobs highly.However we have on occasions stupidly left out items of value without loss,this is unfair to the staff as it brings them under suspicion if anything goes wrong.As the managment has pointed out, thier is a safety box in the room.Temptation is temptation in any part the world.
As for reporting to the thai police this has its frustrations ask any Thai.
If you are thinking of reserving a room at the Boathouse do not let this discourage you,a delightful experience awaits you at the Boathouse
