Tranquil atmosphere but overpriced
Located across the river among sprawling banana farms, the Thai Garden Inn feels like a secluded countryside village.
Rooms are in pleasant individual wood cabins, which curve around an open yard. All have private bath and come with either fan or air-con to go with framed Thai artwork, firm beds, woven bamboo furniture, fridges and front porches with chairs and tables. A decent bar and restaurant is perched on stilts over the reception area and serves complimentary breakfast and snacks throughout the day. WiFi is free. The inn also has a good-sized pool and we'd recommend the more secluded rooms set back beside it. The staff are friendly, if a bit timid. Overall we still like the Thai Garden Inn, but you'll find higher quality rooms for similar prices elsewhere. If you want to be totally surrounded by nature and don't mind spending the money, the Thai Garden is still a fine choice.
