A newly added coffee shop, bar and restaurant lies next to a two-storey, varnished wood-clad block housing four air-conditioned rooms downstairs and four fan-cooled alternatives on the first floor. A lawn-cum carpark separates the building from the road though there isn’t a lot of night-time traffic in these parts anyway.

Rooms are well kitted out.

All rooms are bright and airy with wide French doors and downstairs ones come with a veranda, table and chairs out front and upstairs ones with a small balcony to the rear. (Views then are probably better from the cheaper rooms.) The decor isn’t up to much but the varnished floors are sparkling and the mattresses large with comfy new duvets for those cool Piang Luang nights. Fan room mattresses are devoid of beds and lie directly on the floor but, for now, it is all very spick and span so no worries.

Budget and air-con rooms have clean ensuite bathrooms with hot water and the air-con and WiFi work efficiently. There’s a small seating area to the right where a basic breakfast of tea, coffee, toast and fruit is on offer as the excellent in-house coffee shop doesn’t generally open until 10:00.

Service is welcoming and friendly with some English spoken and so, unless you want to splash out on one of Heun Mhok Khan’s chalets, this spot gets our vote in the area.
