We booked direct with The Australian / Lao owners, who welcomed us warmly (as did her mother!). We enjoyed this hotel in the perfect location, if only the sun had shone ! The room was adequate and clean, and breakfasts were OK. The staff were very accommodating though they had limited English. Out of convenience we ate in the hotel every night which was OK. The rest of Vang Vieng, as the Lonely Planet stated was a little seedy, the best places to stay are on the river, and the Elephant Crossing is one of the best ,and seems to do very well with tour groups in and out every night.
They arranged a day trip, walking, caving and kayaking with a brilliant guide - much recommended and they arranged our onward travel to Luang Prabang direct from the hotel in a 10 seater mini bus with other guests.
