This place was one of the first here in Kanchanaburi and did look like the pictures twenty-one years back.
Sadly the place is tired and very shabby with rickety planks and faded facade. I know the owner Lurt well, and popped in to see him recently as he knew my mother who lived there at the guest house over 20 years back. As ever he was warm and friendly and remembered me so it pains me to write this, but the place is in desperate need of refurbishment and money spent on it. There are now plenty of other places that are better in appearance and are in just as a good a location. I would not stay here and stayed up the road for my trip to Kanchanaburi, the entrance is uninviting and looks like you are entering some Thai's garden not a guest house. As ever on this road there are naughty dogs who kick off at night. the council really should shoot them as they are a pest and do not help bring in tourists to the area. KOh Samui had a similar problem way back, but they now round up stray dogs and deal with them.
For a view on the river overlooking the WAT, you cannot beat this place but as a place to stay you can do better. Sorry Lurt, spend some serious money and do the place up.More
