We had a wonderful time in Chiang Mai thanks to Yul and his staff. The place is very nice furnished, has a stunning view on the river and a cute pool are. Yul was a perfect host and helped us arranging everything we wished for. Our highlight was the cooking class with pom - the chef of the homestay. The food was delicious and we loved eating everything. We really had an amazing time and we recommend this place to every one!

Me and couple of friends stayed at Tonnam as a base while we explored CM. It's right on the river ping and the rooms are little bungalows built in the style of Thai bungalows and there are also a pool, a jacuzzi, a sauna, fitness room, hammock so plenty of luxuries for a relaxing stay. The hotel is about ten minute drive from the city centre - we never found the distance a problem and it's lovely to escape the noise and business of the city to a sanctuary. The homestay will always organise taxis for you. If you don't fancy going into town then there are two restaurants nearby - there is the tonnam restaurant which is practically next door to the homestay on the right - this is a simple restaurant on the river and the food is really good and cheap. About a 5 minute walk on the left on the homestay is Huan soontaree vechanont restaurant - this is a big restaurant with live music and has beautiful decor with lots of lanterns although our group found the food hit and miss. The homestay also does food which is delicious. Rooms are really comfortable with air con snd fans. There is also a fridge, safe and tea making facilities. Overall we had a great stay here

I stayed at Tonnam for my first few nights in Thailand and I am very pleased with the time I spent here.
The service was personal and warm.
Yul was a great host and we shared a lovely conversation with an unexpectedly appropriate message for me at this time in my life, GO FOR IT.
And it payed off, I ended up getting what I wanted!
As you can see this is not your standard B & B, you don't often come away from somewhere you stayed saying this kind of thing!
But since you ask...

The rooms:
Are simple, comfortable, peaceful and have everything you need.

The food:
Is great but a little expensive, having said that it is cooked in front of you and Yul and the ladies in the kitchen will even teach you how to make it.

The experience:
Solace.Refuge.Soul.

The only drawback is that it is well outside of town, unless you are a family it is isn't very convenient on a budget- as it is 200 bhat each way every time you want to go into town and when you add this to the cost of the room (which has no television and wifi does not extend to every room) it's definitely more expensive then other places in town in terms of location and facilities.

BUT it is unique and I highly recommend it, its is charming and the hosts make it all worth while.

We stayed here for 2 nights after a jungle/elephant trekking overnight trip. It was such a relief to arrive at Tonnam and have Yul as a resource to ask questions and arrange things for us. Someone was available to pick us up and bring us to the resort and take us into town whenever we wanted for a reasonable price. In fact, all goods and services provided at Tonnam were at a very reasonable price and not inflated like other places. Next he arranged for us to have massages at the home stay within 20 minutes of asking. What really made our experience though was our last night the fondue dinner arranged for us and the other 2 families staying. We are family style and it was a real treat and we could tell took considerable planning and effort. Bravo!

A peaceful beautiful oasis of an inn on the banks of the river just outside the main central area of Chaing Mai. A highlight of our trip to Thailand, Tonnam Inn was the perfect place to unwind. Great little Thai styled cottages surrounding a wonderful infinity pool, and outdoor eating area. The food here is incredible and Yul is a wonderful chef, cooking up great Thai dishes and offering cooking classes to guests. Well worth it, we came home with some new Thai cooking skills. One of the highlights was a tour of the local food market with Yul where every fruit and vegetable, fish and meat you could ever dream of was sold. I highly recommend this place.
