Out of the centre of Chiang Mai, but with an interesting location close to Wat Umong amid the leafy lanes at the foot of Doi Suthep, Ayatana offers an excellent deal in the flashpacker to midrange.

Even prior to being taken over by the Chiang Mai-based cheap and cheerful B2 chain, rates were very competitive and maybe they need to be to attract customers to what is a rather out of the way address. You are still only 10 to 15 minutes from the Old City or five to trendy Nimmanhemin, but you’re getting a boutique-style, midrange resort at a flashpacker rate.

The star of the show is their delightful, lush garden, with spacious wooden decking and a great swimming pool. It's an ideal choice if you think you’re going to spending time chilling in your resort rather than trawling around Chiang Mai’s attractions, and a particularly good option if you’ve got kids in tow.

Rooms are laid out in two-storey, pale yellow and dark varnished wood-finished blocks on three sides and come in superior and deluxe flavours. They also offer some larger family rooms sleeping four but some incongruous pricing means two adjacent (we're not sure if they actually have interconnecting doors) deluxe rooms would work out a lot cheaper.

Plenty of spots for the kids to cool off in.

Deluxe rooms are larger and brighter and also come with bathtubs though all rooms are reasonably sized and comfortable. Decor is a tasteful and low-key Lanna style, though we weren’t convinced by the deliberately distressed, traditional-style wall mural copies. Rooms come with air-con and ensuite bathroom, and also safes, free tea and coffee, cable TV, fridge and minibar. All the rooms we were shown had balconies. We're not sure the WiFi reaches all corners of the resort, so check if that’s important for you.

There’s an in-house spa and restaurant, bar and coffee shop. Breakfasts are supplementary to the standard prices. It's probably well worth forgoing it anyway for a stroll down to the main street, Suan Dok, where a host of excellent local cafes awaits.

A simple flourish here and there.

B2 Ayatana Premier would probably go for twice the price in the Old City, but for the location, it merits consideration.
