Named after its welcoming British owner, Moley’s Guest House has four comfortable and affordable rooms to go with a riverside terrace where you can chill out between bites of homemade English pies.

The former fisher’s house stands on stilts on the north side of the Khlong Prao estuary, a short kayak ride from the beach. Be aware however that you’ll need wheels to reach the beach overland, as there’s no direct beach access from this side of the river.

Rooms enjoy a splash of colour.

With some set right beside the water and others found further back in the non-stilted part of the house, rooms rely on tile or hardwood floors and heavy log bedframes to achieve a tastefully rustic design. Inside you get soft bed with quality linens, flatscreen TV, desk and ensuite hot-water bathroom. Guests can also use a shared fridge along with free kayaks and WiFi.

The calming outlook from Moley’s open-sided common terrace is similar to the one at Baan Rim Nam across the canal, with perhaps a cosier feel. You’ll often find interesting people to chat with, especially when the expats flock here for Moley’s legendary fry ups at breakfast time. You could also pop next door to Sapparot Bar, another low-key British-run establishment.

Moley told us that his business is half guesthouse and half restaurant, and anyone hankering for house-cured bacon and sausage to go with artisanal pies should make a special trip here even if not staying the night. If you can’t make it down to Khlong Prao, Vone’s is an associated cafe on the main drag in Chai Chet offering the same menu.

We were saddened to hear that the motorised floating picnic table, designed and built by Moley, had been lost to a storm since our previous visit. Even so, this little guesthouse remains a very good, if slightly quirky, budget choice. Expect to feel isolated here if you’re not renting a vehicle.
