We stayed her for only one night on our trip to visit hellfire pass and the bridge on the River Kwai.
The resort is a few km's from the town, over the river and so is out of the way. On arrival the entrance to the resort is beautiful. The pool is excellent and the grounds are beautiful, however the same cannot be said for the rooms. They are clean and comfortable, but worn out and in need of a lick of paint and a bathroom update. Our shower was quite poor with limited pressure.
Overall, for a few nights, as a place to base yourself and explore the area, the accommodation is fine. You do need to realise that it is more difficult to get into town, it is not just a short walk away, you will have to arrange some transport.
We ate at the restaurant in the resort, but on the river on a floating barge. The food was good, service was ok, but the setting was divine. Overlooking the Bridge which at night is lit up.
