Our pick of the mid-range guesthouses

What we say: 4 stars

This beautifully constructed, but small, mid-range site, set just back a bit from the lake, manages to keep rates reasonable – which you can’t say for all these places – and has some rather nice rooms. The large, wooden-floored and panelled rooms are very well-sized, comfortably furnished and come with en-suite hot water showers as well as TV, fridge and Wi-Fi. The better rooms out front have great balconies too. The main, and indeed only problem, with this very nice guesthouse is that there is a limited number of rooms and all are the same price regardless of whether they have lake views and/or balconies. This makes it essential to book in advance, even during low season, if you want one of the nicer rooms as otherwise it’s rather frustrating to be stuck downstairs, at the back, without balcony while someone upstairs has a lovely little veranda with table and chairs and lake views and isn’t paying a single baht more than you are. Though little English is spoken by the staff, they are still very welcoming of foreigners. For the money, Jumjai represents the best value among a series of similar small guesthouses close to, or on, the waterfront as long as you manage to obtain one of the front rooms. If not, then with no view, there ares better deals elsewhere.
