The Riverhouse Hotel is a well established, longstanding hotel with wooden, lodge-type accommodation -- their claim to fame is that King Carl Gustaf of Sweden stayed here with his family in 2003. There is also a Riverhouse Resort, located 50 metres along the river in a large concrete block, and run by the same company.

Both the hotel and resort are pretty similar room-wise, with the hotel rooms being slightly smaller and cheaper, but also definitely the cosier and more atmospheric of the two. The front entrance follows through to a stunning wooden deck, which looks out over the river. Rooms along that side of the building also have small individual balconies with similar views. Rooms are furnished in the same style as the resort, with TV, fridge and a bathroom with efficient hot shower. They are teak finished and attractively decorated with a few Lanna flourishes, and come with air-con, though some are converted to fan-only for the low season. In high season, which is also the cool season, only air-con is available.

The hotel has a pleasant view of the river from the balcony, though this end of Langpanich has tall trees on the opposite bank of the river which block the more spectacular vistas available further down the road. With luck you may see the spectacular chestnut-headed bee-eaters swooping over the river for insects -- they live in holes in the mud bank opposite.

With English-speaking, friendly staff plus WiFi access in the rooms, as well as a few computers available in the lobby, plus a few motorbikes are available for rent for 200 baht per day, this is a good option for Mae Sariang. The restaurant is open daily 07:00-21:00 and does simple but eminently edible Thai and Western dishes. Rooms here fill up fast – even in the low season -- as the Riverhouse Hotel is popular with tour groups, so booking well ahead is advisable.
