Average hotel

a little far

right on the river, serene
We booked this hotel after tiring 2 night camping at the waterfall. We decided to stay at a hotel and take proper rest. It was a last minute booking and decided we would like to stay on a river raft. The view was nice and the hotel is very quiet. There were almost like no one else was there. The river raft is very basic, somewhat old and a little dark. I guess that's what you get for a raft on a river. It's quite basic and if i wasn't doing a last minute booking, i might have chosen somewhere else. I have to give credit to the serenity though. It does feel like you are living in the jungle in the middle of nowhere especially at night.

Relax and stay close to the nature.

Nice with budgeted resort with good staff.
The River Kwai Botanic Garden Resort offer the nice and relax atmoshere. With its location that little far from city center, it offers a quiet and calm moment. The resort has the river (Kwai River) lying along withthe resort, so you can living close to the historic river (even jump into the river). The room is nice, the food (breakfast/lunch/dinner) also good and inexpensive. All the staffs are friendly and willing to help you in everyway. In conclusion, The River Kwai Botanic Garden Resort is good choice compare to what you pay, you can relax or enjoy the nature and order some food and drink without going anywhere.

Good river view but rather poor management

Good river view, quiet circumstance and easy to travel
Good natural atmosphere but room is dirty. Some items are out of order. Not flexible in timing. Cleaning staff tries to enter room to clean while living. Food is quite okay.
Jamjuree K. Couples Thailand, May 5, 2013
beautiful river and nature view. wonderfu lacal

raft style room right on the river, great view, totally in touch with nature but far out from the city
We had a very nice stay. we loved the raft room with very beautiful view, breath taking. But the main area should be the river terrace but it was abit small and connected openly to other rooms next to eite each other. no privacy. great friendly staff. it's located quite far out.
Paivi N. Groups Finland, December 31, 2012
Raft was a good experience

Big garden with butterflies
the hotel has beautiful surroundings, large garden with the peaceful athmosfare. the staff were very kindly and helpful although they didn't speak english. we acted and used google translator and got what we wanted. a little pool was enough and in there was a refreshing temperature, nearly cold. rafts were ok and staying there was relaxing, but they didn't clean the rooms every day. we were there three nights and we got only once two bottles of drinking water. the breakfast was puffet and tasty when the hotel was full.
Hotel Feature Tip: You need your own car to move and see the other places. There are no taxes, no buses and the way to Kanchanaburi is about 30 km. All the sights are quit far away. Try the floating rafts' journey in the river! Nice.
Christopher B. Couples United States of America, December 30, 2012
Won't win awards, but it was a nice place to stay

River raft rooms are relaxing
We stayed in a river raft room. The room itself was pretty basic, but the whole point of a raft room is sitting on the balcony and relaxing next to the water. This stretch of the river is very quiet and there are no worries about party boats passing by. The resort itself is quite far out of town and not really near anything, so its best to only stay here if you have a car. The only restaurant nearby is in the hotel, where the food is decent enough. Staff were generally friendly and unobtrusive. The hotel doesn't offer any booking services for activites in the area, so you are on your own to arrange those elsewhere.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Stay away from the Tiger Temple. A complete tourist trap filed with tour groups. If you want to see a few tigers hanging out in a smelly, dusty pit as tourists line up to pay to be photographed with them, then you may enjoy it, thought that is doubtful.
Alan J. Families with young children United Kingdom, August 5, 2012
Great Location but poor food

Location, setting
The setting of the hotel is lovely although it is quite hard to find. The food however is very poor and the breakfast was a disgrace. We booked a raft room for 3 nights but after 1 night changed rooms as the raft rooms are very basic indeed and with a child are far too small. Overall whilst the setting is idyllic I would not recommend this hotel for a stay as there are a host of resorts around Kanchanaburi. In addition the hotel is a good 30 minute drive from the city.
Travel tip: The hotel is hard to find so I recommend getting to Kanachanuburi town and then calling the hotel for directions. Train station is nearby for a trip on the railway and that is must do...the hotel will bus you there and pick you up afterwards.
