Fantastic Location But Old

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 26, 2012
The view from this hotel of the golden triangle is unbeatable. I hear that the hotel used to be great when it was new, but at the present time in 2012, it is really run down. The carpets are old and torn in places. The bathrooms have items that are falling off. Meals were average quality but pricey. Breakfast pretty average. Staff in the dining room was attentive and was good in providing information about the town and area.

Stayed at this hotel for New Year 2011-12. We also stayed at this hotel 8 years ago for New Year and had very fond memories of it, so you are always risking spoiling those memories when you go back, but all in all we had a really nice time here.

The place has not really changed much over that time, except for the fact that the wonderful old wooden building nestled away at the back near the forest was not utilised for the NY celebrations, which is a shame, as it is perfect. The New Year dinner was, unfortunately, the worst part of our stay. The food was not at all of a high standard, and the "entertainment" was even worse - it was in stark contrast to 8 years ago when this was the highlight of our trip (honestly - it was genuinely really good then!).

The restaurant served great food in the evenings while sitting under the cool night sky on the lovely balcony over looking the river. The breakfast was fine (but nothing particularly special).

The staff were very charming and helpful, and we used the hotel minibus service many times with a very pleasant driver who was always there on time. Tours can be booked directly through the hotel, and the prices were reasonable, so you can be sure you are kept busy on your stay without any hassles.

Had 2 adjoining rooms as we had requested, and they were fine in every respect, but just a little on the old side - nothing that bothered us though.

If we go back again then this is the only place I would ever think of stopping at - it has something about it that we irresistibly like but just cannot actually say what that is!

I highly recommend this resort as your accomations when traveling the Golden Trianle, the location is great. the rooms are very clean and spacious. The dining area is very relaxing and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and hospitable, as with all of the Thai people I met in my travels. This was one of the best trips I've taken on my R&R.

Room tip: The front rooms in the corner have a very nice view.

Our tour group stayed in this hotel for one night during our visit to the Golden Triangle area. It is located close to the town centre near the boat launch area. It is quite modern with good facilities. Our room had a balcony overlooking the Mekong River. The room was quite large and modern. We were impressed with the hotel. We ate dinner and had breakfast in their restaurant and both were quite good.

We would recommend this hotel for your visit to the Golden Triangle area.

MY wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of January 2012 as part of a tour of Thailand. The staff were very helpfull but unfortunately we had to move roooms after the first night because we found dirty water coming out of the cold tap on our sink in the bathroom. We arrived late in the evening on the first night, so just dropped our suitcases and went to the restaurant for a meal which was very nice and the service excellent, however there is a small restaurant opposite the front of the hotel which also serves excellent food at a much lower price and that is where we ate on the second night. The buffet breakfasts are excellent with a large selection of western and asian foods.
The hotels location is okay but apart from the local shops and restaurants there does not seem much to do at night, as it is quite some way away from Chiang Rai the main town in the area, so if you want any nightlife this is not the place for you for more than a couple of nights

Well this hotel is not ne of the nicest you will probably stay in.....definitely way outdated! But the location is good and the price is right. Nice staff that is all smiles but a little shy. I guess it comes with the area and quiet type of locals that live here. Everything was really nice I am sure in 1990 but a renovation is needed. The biggest surprise was the dinner we had in the restaurant--very good! They even let us drink our two bottles of Beer Lao at no corkage fee which was really nice of them. (we took a 400 baht boat to a Lao village across the river--no visa needed) in the price bracket it is the best the area has to offer for sure.
