This is the first spot you come to down the lane past the old Tha Ton Chalet, and so probably one of the first to have been constructed in this area. This means it is just a couple of minutes from the bridge and main drag and very convenient for those without transport. It’s not a large establishment, squeezed into a strip between the lane and riverbank and very much falls into the “on a good day cosy or on a bad one cramped” category.

Brick rooms are set around a tiny garden facing the carpark with another small block giving directly on to the parking area itself. Better rooms are in a separate building on the riverside adjacent to their surprisingly large restaurant. The latter rooms, possessing good balconies overlooking the river, lack decor but are spacious, clean and bright and a good deal as far as air-con river view rooms go. There are hot showers in adequate bathrooms, fridges, kettles, cable TV and WiFi.

We’re not convinced by their uninspiring garden air-con rooms which wouldn’t be our first choice in Tha Ton in that category. However, the fan rooms, while less well-appointed, remain a very good deal—the cheapest we found in Tha Ton—and we’ve seen far worse for twice the price in the area.

Plenty of riverside seating.

Staff members we met were helpful with English spoken, although services offered were more limited than at other Tha Ton guesthouses. With only minimal high season rate increases this is a good option for anyone on a tight budget and a good deal if you want a reasonably priced river view and convenient lodgings if you don’t have transport.
