If you stay here be prepared to bring your own food or eat out They say they sell alcohol see my photo But it was always no have No have Leo No have Heineken No have gin and tonic etc etc We eat pad Thai there was just the 4 of us in the restaurant and there were 4 ladies sitting talking behind restaurant counter The food took 40 min to arrive but what the ladies were doing we had no idea they vanished and service was non existent The bath and shower water was often just tepid All this being said The room was clean the aircon ok This hotel has enormous potential it is modern and right on the river Kwai the grounds are stunningly beautiful and well maintained A beautiful swimming pool Perfect for a wedding BUT I would not trust them as their total lack of regard to service is scary There is nothing around for miles so you would expect a well stocked bar This premises could easily become a 4 star luxury hotel but it is a poor 3 star So to sum up if you want a holiday in perfect quiet surroundings but accept that you have to survive on your own devices then that is good A great place to write your first novel

In the middle of nowhere, you need your own car to overnight. It is an average hotel with average facilities. Very quiet place if you are searching for relax but no other amenities are available. All the place is a little run-down and need a refurbish

First of all this is not really trying to be a western hotel. It falls more on the side of a Thai hotel so if you are looking for 4 or 5 star type features you won't get it. However if you just want a place to hang your hat while exploring the mountains this place is just fine. The best part was the pool. It was big and had an area that was shaded by large trees. The pool is a short distance from the river with a beautiful mountain in the background. This is a very serene place to relax after a day of trekking. Also this hotel will not break your budget so if that matters I can say this is a good choice. And finally absolutely, do not go if you don't have a trip set up or a car of your own. This is not somewhere you just stay for a long time. It is a base.

We booked at this resort in a hurry and didn't get the chance to look properly at the location. From the photos on the website and the favorable reviews on tripadvisor we thought it seemed a safe choice. We were told by our driver on the way that it was about 40km outside of Kanchanaburi town. When we arrived at 7.30pm the hotel was eerily quiet, a bit like from a horror movie. We didn't see a single guest and only 2 staff. We checked into our rooms - very sad, old, dirty and with threats of fines written on the soap and shampoo bottles if removed from the room. We had a few drinks and found when we went to pay that all staff had gone home. In the morning we were surprised to find some other guests who were there for a conference and breakfast was quite good. We later realised this hotel is mostly only used as a conference centre. We asked at the desk about taxis and told a taxi to town would cost about 1500 baht. Instead we got a lift to the end of the driveway and waited for a bus. It never showed and fortunately a bus full of Thai teachers who had been at the hotel for a conference stopped and drove us into town. For almost the same price book Felix in town. It's close to everything and far better for the price. Just don't book here!
