“Best beds in Vietnam!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

We've been traveling for almost a month in Vietnam, and this has been our favorite hotel so far. The hotel itself is small and intimate, but the rooms are luxurious and huge. The owners claim the best beds in the country, and we found that to be true! Super comfortable mattresses, excellent pillows, and nice bedding. We planned to depart the hotel early in the morning but couldn't bring ourselves to get out of bed. And then the bathrooms - large, separate shower with a rain head (!) and a big sink with tons of counter space for your stuff. These guys really get that the details matter - from the complimentary bikes, to the rooftop garden, to the card the owner hands you when you leave in case you need help calling or getting back to the hotel, to the homemade Laos-style sausages, to the decor of objects and photos collected on their own travels. We felt very cared for here and wish our stay could have been longer. Thank you!

We found Murray Guesthouse a welcoming and wonderful boutique hotel in Chau Doc - the rooms are very nice with high quality furnishings and linens. But the best is the warmth of the hosts and staff - thanks for the great stay!

Murray Guesthouse was one of the best hotels of our Vietnam/Cambodia trip. It is conveniently located near the river, just a 10 min walk to the central market and Victoria hotel and a short tuk-tuk ride to the bus station and boat docks.
This hotel is new, clean, quiet and very comfortable.
They serve a delicious complimentary Vietnamese or western breakfast and, although there is no in-house restaurant, there are refreshments available in fridges and a relaxing rooftop garden in which to enjoy them.
From the moment we arrived the owner/manager Thanh Can and her staff were welcoming, attentive and so helpful with everything--from recommending good local restaurants to arranging our Mekong river boat ticket to Phnom Penh (their suggestion of a little more expensive but smaller boat made our river trip fast, comfortable, uncomplicated at the Cambodian border,and enjoyable--as promised). They even had two new bicycles with helmets for our day trip to Sam mountain with its beautiful views of the delta.
We had a great 2 day stay in Chau Doc and this hotel was a big part of that.

We stayed one night on our way to Cambodia. The owners are very nice and friendly. The place is new with very clean rooms and a nice pool table room upstairs for guests. Lots of interesting objects and photos from world travels on the walls. Highly recommend this place if you need to stay somewhere in Chau Doc. The local market is a great place to visit. Roof has views.

Difficult to fault this guesthouse in any way. I have paid far more money for "good" hotels that do not compare. Spotlessly clean. Many extra facilities including an honesty payment bar and even a full size pool table. I was short on time, but couldn't resist an extra night. Ultra friendly host who speaks pretty good English and other equally friendly family members. Guesthouse is about a 10 min walk from the ferry drop off. Cycles and great advice available. Best possible introduction to Vietnam.

We stayed at Murray guesthouse for one night on our way from Vietnam to Cambodia. The hotel is pretty new and our room + bathroom were super clean. The staff is extremly nice and helpful (the hotel is run by a Vietnamese / Australian couple). Another big plus are the billiard table & the bar. It's a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre which is alright. The hotel also offers rental bikes for free. We felt welcome and would definitely recommend the hotel!
