A great place to relax and recover
Posted Feb 20, 2012
Our main reason for visiting the area was to visit the ancient city of Sukhothai, and this hotel is a good 40 minute drive from there, which only their own van as an option, which is quite expensive. Having said that, the hotel is really lovely, and so as a treat, it felt worth it, and we did have a driver and air conditioned van from 8am until around 4pm for about £50, so not that bad really!!!
On the first night, it felt like we were the only guests, and the waiter at dinner brought us freshly baked rolls, explained all the specials, and generally made sure we had absolutely everything we could need, excellent service. On the second night, there was some kind of Chinese/Japanese travel agent meeting going on, and our waiter from the night before said hello, and then he would be working upstairs that night. We didn't get anywhere near as good a service, which after how special the first night was, felt disapointing. The food on both occassions was excellent though.
I had the swimming pool to myself when I used it, and it was very peaceful and tranquil.
I would recommend this hotel as somewhere to have a bit of recovery time from travelling about, and just accept that cost of getting to Sukhothai as part of the experience.
