Great hospitality

What we say: 4 stars

Surin's only guesthouse is known for two things: warm hospitality and a difficult to find location down a dirt road to the north of town. The guesthouse feels more like a homestay and is set in a wooden house surrounded by pleasant gardens. Rooms are basic fan-cooled deals but are well-kept. Cold water baths are shared. A simple but tasty Thai menu is offered in a tiny restaurant where you can chat with the friendly owners and other travellers. Mr Pirom and his wife got their start in the tourism business in Kanchanaburi back in 1988, and he is also a licensed guide who offers several itineraries, from day trips to temples to week-long tours of eastern Thailand. Prices obviously vary depending upon tours and number of people -- and for one or two people can be understandably pricey, so best to check when you're there and see if there are any other takers to split costs with you. Mr Pirom can also point guests in the right direction for motorbike hire. Despite the distance, we recommend Pirom-Aree's thanks to the laidback atmosphere and welcoming, helpful owners. To get here from the centre of town, cross over the railway lines and take the first left on Thung Poh Road. Follow that for a kilometre or so and keep an eye open for a small blue sign at the top of a lane leading off to the left. You can always call them and ask for a lift, or a tuk tuk from the bus or railway station should set you back 50 baht.
