Lamorn Guesthouse has no atmosphere and is located outside the tourist centre, but these are things some may be willing to overlook in favour of an inexpensive room with private bathroom in a newer building.

Lamorn is located on the town (north) side of the river, on the dirt road along the water that runs parallel to the main street. It’s the same road as Pho Sai River View and Nam Ou River Lodge. Unlike these two slightly more expensive guesthouses, Lamorn fails to take advantage of its riverside location in any way. There’s no balcony overlooking the water, no big windows or even an outdoor corridor. There’s a walkway frustratingly placed on the side, with an angled glimpse of the trees and mountains. Ignoring the scenery is the guesthouse’s most noticeable flaw.

Rooms are brightish.

So no photos of the river from your room to send to Mum but hey, here it’s about the solidly built, bright, clean rooms that sport tile floors, powder blue walls and solid wood furniture including a table which holds an electric kettle and old box TV. Windows are covered with insect screens so fresh air is bug free. The wetroom style tile bathroom is on the small side. A high window lets in natural light and there’s a electric heated shower.

If you can afford the few extra dollars, Pho Sai River View or Nam Ou River Lodge does have a wonderful prospect. However, if it’s about saving kip, Lamorn is a low-key stay at a family guesthouse and the quality of room is better than Sythane, Sunrise Guesthouse and Delilah’s. No English spoken so communication may be an issue. Lamorn is just 350 m to the boat landing, 700 m to the bridge and just over a kilometre to the bus station.
