“Lovely Small Guesthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

The welcome and service at this small guesthouse was super. The rooms are in traditional style and are basic but just fine. The room had windows looking out to the rice fields. The only negative is that the bathroom is not fully insulated against pests so you have to keep the door shut and be aware of mozzies at the dawn/dusk hours. The bathroom was small with a shower open to the room so it might be slippery but they give you little slippers which helped. The guestrooms have a large lanna style open deck with furnture so you can relax there - a nice amenity given the smallish size of the room. The restaurant was quite good with local traditional dishes. There are a few small tables too that edge the rice field where we sat and watched the sunset with a cold beer. The people here were so lovely that we'd recommend it highly.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

When we arrived, we were very kindly received. We could choose between a room with a double bed and one with two matrasses on the floor. We choose the wrong one, I guess, the one with the double bed. Too late we noticed that there was a penetrating smell of cat urine in the room, although it looked clean. There was no warm water in the shower.
We decided to have dinner in the restaurant of the resort. The food was not good. The breakfast next morning was poor.

Over several years I've stayed with friends well we are fishing the river in the area, only recently did I find this nice resort on the web to recommend to another. (Catch and release fly fishing guided by locals hill tribe residents). Previously I only possessed the phone number, with all calls treated with the utmost curtoisie when booking.

As an expat of many years in Thailand, nights here were the quietest I'd encountered in my travels all over Thailand. Also it is definitely a romantic location if so desired.
