A small but colourful hotel with its own pool
7/1095 Ratyotha Rd T: (053) 711 550
Lek House is an odd little spot but friendly, with a good location, bar, restaurant, coffee shop and pool all squeezed into a tiny area alongside their rooms.
We're not totally convinced by the bright purple paint scheme but the whole place does have more of a cosy than a cramped feel. Their location aside what we assume is a remaining stretch of the old city moat, creates a certain distance between the guesthouse and the main road and also allows tables and chairs to be installed on a walk-way next to the water. Passing over a small bridge across the moat, the reception, coffee shop and restaurant are laid out around a tiny yard with the swimming pool set behind the bar. Passing between coffee shop and bar a path leads out back to their rooms. There’s a choice of fan or air-con rooms; all are simply decorated and fan rooms are on the small size but both types have attached bathrooms with hot showers. It’s certainly got character -- especially if you like purple.
