“Not recommended.”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights in November 2011 in a downstairs room.

Room: NOISY from neighbours, dark during the day, polluted by light in the hallway at night, VERY ant friendly, comfortable mattress, uncomfortable pillows, horrible synthetic chintzy cover on bed. On the basic side of basic, but clean at least. Slept OK with earplugs, extra clothes b/c cold, and eye patch!

General: the lady was very friendly, really nice. Didn't have much interaction with the man. Hardly saw owners except when I checked in b/c I had to get up V early in morning. Both nights the 'restaurant/bar' closed very early, fridge was empty except for a few beers and some water. Saw someone trying to order breakfast on my second morning having a very hard time communicating 'toast'. Found it very weird coming back at 9pm to an eerily empty dark building.

I don't think this place is good value for money, and I would never ever stay here again. There are HUNDREDS of lovely guesthouses in CM, that offer much much more in terms of comfort, decor, ambiance, location and price.

Not recommended.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights in Feb 2012. The owners, Buddy and Ann, are awesome people. The rooms are beautiful, clean and smell really nice! The beds are comfortable and the showers are hot! Food is amazing and if your a coffee-lover, you'll be in heaven and Buddy has his own brew of tea for the tea-lovers. Not that we stayed in the room much (no one should while on holidays), but they have English TV channels. Buddy and Ann were really helpful with telling us the good places to shop and see. If your easy-going, relaxed and want to stay in a guesthouse with character, i would highly recommend this place. Great location with bars close enough for a few drinks but far enough that you wont hear them at night. Thanks Buddy and Ann (and the house keeper who im sorry but forgotten her name). We had a fantastic time and will definately stay here again!!!! Lots of love Tashy and Hayley

Clean, friendly, well cared for and convenient.

Unlike many guesthouses in this bracket, you don't have to worry about dirt or noise - and the wifi is excellent.

Lovely little guesthouse and restaurant. The owner is very nice and outgoing and makes you feel like home. Nice rooms with hot showers and TV, the breakfast is great and amazing coffee at great prices.
We had a very nice morning together with Coyote and mr. Dixie pig.

Thanks for having us. Andreas and Kamilla from Denmark. Looking forward to visit you again.

The food here is wonderful and the owners are very informative and interesting. Saw the rooms but didn't sleep here (traveling with children and not enough room). Great location and relaxing spot to park yourself and take a break for an hour or so. Does close up a bit early at night though.

I felt sad when I left this place. Friendly owner and very helpful. I recommend people who will come to Chiang Mai to stay at Buddy and Anne's place. They treat you like family. I guarantee I will come back to their place should I come to Chiang Mai. Oh..I am still remember my promise to Buddy, tempe.

If you are looking for a place that feels like home, this is the place to go. You might be on the other side of the world, but Buddy and Anne will make you feel like part of the Dixie Pig family. This is a great place to go for lone and couple travelers for that reason. The couple in charge will recommend tours and sights for you to see, and they have all the best connections and knowledge to make sure your experience is unforgettable. The hot shower was a God send compared to the regular cold showers at other guesthouses. The organic coffee will make you feel like you've stumbled upon a new discovery, and the prices are just right for the comfort level. Thanks Pig, for making Chiang Mai such a wonderful place.
