“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

The location of this place was perfect. Plenty of places to eat nearby. They could arrange tours easily and they were very friendly. The pool was nice after a hot day too!

Just a note about the garden room. I had been under the impression that the showers for the garden rooms, actually were incorporated in a private garden. It's not. It's more like there is a shower, and then a large screened window looking into what might pass as a garden. Good pricing though for the room so can't really complain.

I didn't stay here, but due to the lack of friendliness in Kan'buri, I would like to give kudos to Ploy GH for greeting me with a smile and friendliness and letting me keep my suitcase in their "lobby" while I went to find a place to stay. I stopped into a lot of the hostels and guesthouses to get prices and this was one of the very few which wasn't on automatic and knew how to be happy!!

I just stayed at Ploy Guesthouse this past weekend. It's a very comfortable quiet guesthouse right in the middle of the tourist/backpacker area but off the road just enough to feel quaint and peaceful. The breakfast offered is very basic, just toast and coffee or tea, but other items (eggs, juice, pancakes etc.) are on sale at a fair price and tasted great. The service was friendly and accommodating. I stayed on the ground level and our room had a garden along side it. The window facing the garden was protected by a screen held up by tape that kept coming off at night. This was the only downside of the stay as the bugs bit me up pretty good while I was trying to sleep. Overall its a nice, clean, centrally located guesthouse that serves as a great starting point for exploring this idyllic and interesting area of Thailand. I would recommend it to friends, and stay there again on my next visit to Kanchanaburi.

Room Tip: Considering my issues with bugs I would recommend requesting an upstairs room.

gone back again to ploy guest house for the 5th time and were just as pleased as always, staff very friendly, rooms typically thai are very good and spacious for the price at 670 bahts including light breakfast (toast, butter and jam, coffee and tea, as much as you want), but you can have fried breakfast at a reasonable price
also they have a small swimming pool which is great after a busy day walking a lot (hell fire path, 4 km!) and visiting around
just a little thing, the new young lady at reception is a bit regimental but I think it will soon wear off, and at the end she was very helpful and pleasant
for sure we will go back again when we have friends coming over

Room Tip: we had a room upstairs, but I booked a room downstairs (at 880 bahts) for our friend as it is a bit...

Reviewed November 18, 2013

We have visited Ploy Guesthouse about 5 times over the last 4 years and always recommended the place to our friends. This time something had changed but we couldn't quite say what it was.

The rooms were looking a little tired in places, it was a weekend so breakfast was busy, with quite a few things run out, and on Saturday night there were groups of Thai's who were shouting and making a lot of noise between 2am-4am. The ladies on the reception were good but man in the bar/pool area took over 30 minutes to tell us they didn't have the drinks we ordered.

I didn't want to write a bad review as I love this place and the style of the rooms, pool and restuarant area, I really want to put this down to a busy weekend, but it was only 'average' this visit.

Room Tip: I think the rooms in block A may be quieter.

The room ad bathroom was excellet. Except for no wifi in the room everything else was perfect. Pool area is great and breakfast very nice.
By far was worth the vale comparing with others in the area. They have laundry service.
