Chiangtung House offers basic but clean and functional rooms in two one-storey blocks set around a small yard and carpark -- it’s your best bet in town. You’ll see a sign for this longstanding guesthouse on the right as you enter Wiang Haeng -- if you reach the 7-eleven you’ve gone too far.

The guesthouse is run by a friendly, elderly Shan couple from, as the name suggests, Kengtung (Kyaing Tong in Burmese), in Burma’s Shan State. There’s a reception and cafe area immediately to your left followed by the buildings with the 10 or so rooms. The yard isn’t a high point of Thai landscape gardening and the blocks look a bit grungy from the outside but inside the rooms are fine. They’re functional – in the best sense – in that, while decoration is spartan, the air-con, fan, TV, hot water and even WiFi all do function, though the WiFi gets pretty ropey as you get further from reception.

The tiled rooms and bathrooms are also spotlessly clean and we’ve slept on a lot worse mattresses. There’s a choice of small fan-cooled rooms (a bit too small for our liking), larger fan-cooled rooms and a couple of air-con ones. All have attached bathrooms with hot showers and all come with free tea and coffee in the morning. If this is full, the hardware store opposite has some basic rooms for rent. The prices listed here are slightly negotiable.
