The hotel is located on the river bank,it's quite good scenery of river Kwai.There is small restaurant name Daveport that serve you variety food and the price isn't too high but not so tasty . We think the room need more maintenance,the quality of wifi and the area around the corridor. We appreciate staff's services. But the most disappointing is the cleanliness of the swimming pool and the pool side bathroom as well.

If you’ve come to see the River Kwai then this hotel is the perfect base for exploring as it is very centrally based in Kanchanaburi. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. The only thing to be aware of is that if you are on the top floor of any of the buildings the water pressure and temperature can be affected.

We love this place, it’s quiet, very accessible and easy walking distance to the biggest attractions. The staff are very helpful and very friendly. The rooms are clean and have everything you need in them. If you are going out for the day they will give you a picnic to take if you’re going before breakfast. Everything is lovely and it’s right on the river. The only thing is the pool area could do with some TLC, the sunbeds are limited and the cushions have seen better days! The pool is a lovely size and very clean but it looks old and tired. It’s a shame as this hotel really is amazing and could be so much more than it is with a little investment! I would still come here again if traveling in the area and it’s still a great hotel for the price !

I liked this hotel, the staff were friendly, pretty good location, walking distance from all the main tourist attractions. The rooms are a bit empty, it takes minimalism to a new level....lol There is plenty of parking and it seems like a good venue for a function, there was a wedding on when I was there. Great view of the river. You can see the room on my youtube channel, like in profile, enjoy!
