This was the last place we stayed in our Thailand holiday - and we left the best for last.
The best thing was the personal touch - Gade is a wonderfully friendly person who made us feel welcome and special, and nothing was too much trouble. Even the email messages when booking were chatty and friendly. Breakfast was great, and previous reviewers are right about the blueberry smoothies.
Unfortunately, being in Chiang Mai for 4 days over the New Year, we missed out on getting a room in the main Elliebum. However Gade now also manages "Elliebum 2" a few doors down the road, and the room there was spotless, very comfortable (and with very nice bathroom toiletries) - and we had all the amenities of Elliebum.
Our plane home left late in the day, but we were able to stay in our room until we were ready to leave, at no extra cost.
