My husband and I recently stayed a few days at this hotel. We loved it!!! We wish we had booked in for longer. The hosts Lachie and Ow made us very welcome and couldn't do more for us. They are so friendly and kind. Our room was lovely and clean with a balcony where we could sit and watch the goings on . Very central to restaurants and bars. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough. We have already booked in with them for longer next year. Thanks again our new friends Lachie and Ow.

I had a fantastic stay in this hotel... The location was perfect, I had a lovely room with a balcony, and it was very clean. The owners are so nice, they will get out of their way to help with anything you may need!

Highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone!

Staying at Britannia was a great pleasure. The owners were always friendly and very helpful, great people! They had all their meals together with their staff, which we liked a lot. The rooms were as clean as rooms can be. Air conditioned, fridge, TV (who ever needs one ;), table and chair, closet, hot shower, towels, laundry service (30Baht a kilo as everywhere around). I don’t think you can get a better deal! And the location is great, too. We could leave our bags at Britannia while spending a week up north. They offer tours and a whole lot of information, but they´re not interested at all in forcing you to buy one.

Thank you for your kind remarks. Our staff are generally very busy all day so it is nice to share a meals with them and review what is happening around the building during their day. A lot of Thai/English language exchange on the day to day operations place gives us lots of laughs plus a lot of mutual learning as we go.

I have never thought the need to write a review but this place deserves it, I can't rate this guesthouse highly enough!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for I think 11 days in July this year, the service we received was fantastic and probably the best we received in all of are 3 month trip!! ow and lachie are perfect hosts we felt right at home straight away they help you with any problems and travel arrangements and it was nice chatting to them, the rooms are clean and big with good satellite tv and the cheapest rooms we found in the area.

We originally stayed for a few days then went on to chaing rai (where we stayed in a 3 star hotel) but loved chaing mai and the guest house so much we decided to return.

Thankyou for are fantastic stay I would recommend this place to everyone!

We had a wonderful 2 nights staying here. Ow and Lockie were lovely people who made us feel at home. They booked the Jungle Flight zip-line trip (also highly recommended) for us even getting a considerable discount for us in the process! For the price, the rooms were clean, big and comfortable. We wish we'd stayed longer!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Chiang Mai.

Ow and Lockie, we're looking forward to hearing from you soon!
