Lush garden setting
Pamview Hotel is one of Mae Chaem’s smartest establishments.
The hotel is set in a well-maintained and attractive garden, with a choice of rooms in either a two-storey block or wood-finished chalets in the garden.
The rooms, air-con or fan-cooled, are nothing flashy but comfortable enough and clearly a tad better maintained than those of Mae Chaem Hotel. Ensuite bathrooms boast hot showers. The six wooden chalets, also air-con or fan-cooled, are spacious and come with balconies and attached hot showers. There’s a ‘special’ chalet at the bottom of the garden (costing 100 baht extra), which affords beautiful views across the paddy fields behind the hotel.
Staff are welcoming and obliging, giving Pamview something of a family atmosphere, and if allowed a bit of warning may be able to help out with some sightseeing and or boat trips in the area.
Drinks are available but no food, though that may change during the high season. Breakfast isn’t included but free tea and coffee throughout the day is. We were told there were no seasonal supplements but again this might change during busy months.
To find Pamview, cross over the bridge and turn left at the T-junction. Walk another 100 metres or so and you’ll be in the right spot.
