        Slept well, the A/c is not directly over the bed like many hotels; yes the bathrooms are a little dated but large. Loved the breakfast in the garden under the fixed shade with water feature trickling in the background. Just left on the main road about 600mtr is restaurant Caeuw which we frequented.

        To my disappointment, there were no pillowcases and the pillows were quite dirty. To add it all, both towels were not cleaned and had red spots all over. The bath room was smelly. The good thing is that staffs are friendly and helpful. Luckily we only stayed for couple hours to get some sleep before heading out early in the morning.

        Nice place to stay”

        A bit far from the center by foot but you can rent a bike or a motorbike and if the staff is available they will drop you of. Spacious room, a few stains on the linen but it was old one, the linen was actually clean so it didn't bother us. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on site with good and cheap local food (about 50bahts) and if the restaurant is closed they can order food for you for the same price. Also the breakfast is good! As I'm vegetarian I got eggs on toast in different ways every morning. I recommend.

        Great little bed and breakfast”

        Pros.. great rooms very clean , excellent position for visiting the bridge , Year whom runs the place on her own was so friendly and nothing was to much trouble , she ran us to town a few times and did not want paying... we insisted on giving a large generous tip at the end . It is the sort of place where you help your self to tea and coffee and any beer etc from the fridge and just let her know later . I think that it is too cheap and many people skip it for that reason ... don’t ... cons. Where money is a bit tight it is mainly spent on the rooms upkeep , so not really enough left to spend on the combined reception, dinning area , having said that it only needs a lick of paint to freshen it up . Generally . Very hard working lady with a small amount of help now and then , Jackie is the resident tour guide and is usually contracted out to other companies but if he is not working then hire him .... what he does not know about the bridge and area just is not worth knowing .

        Great”

        Friendly staff, nice clean and well built rooms, great location. Only real issue was not knowing about the boat that takes you to the hotel and instead we drove 40+ minutes to get there which was quite out of the way. Otherwise, excellent place and would stay at again.
