This little gem has to rate as one of the best value B&B's in Thailand. Meao and Malcolm have created a lovely retreat that is less than a 10 minute drive from Old Sukhothai. The location is quiet; a small slice of rural Thailand. The rooms are basic but immaculate, air-conditioned, the pool well maintained, and the hosts incredibly accommodating. We were very happy to find a good sized refrigerator in the room. Breakfast can be brought to the B&B or taken on the terrace of their restaurant in downtown. Most guests opt for a traditional English breakfast, but when we asked for pad thai with an additional egg, we were warmly obliged. We also ate all of our dinners there and enjoyed lovely Thai curries.
Upon arrival, Malcolm met us in our rental vehicle and led us to his Guest House. He and Meao were patient with our questions and offered great advice on what to see in the large surrounding area, in what order and even arranged for a 3 wheeled taxi and courteous driver.
I am a bird-watcher and was delighted to find many species represented in and around their establishment. All in all, a place that we hope to visit over and over every time we return to the what has to be one of the best and safest countries in the world to visit. If you don't have your own vehicle, Malcolm will help arrange all transportation.
