          This is our 3rd stay at this hotel we like its location on the rafts on the river it is not the best maintained hotel but we feel like Tom Sawyer when we sit on our verandah having a few beers watching the river go by as the sun sets Try not to pick a weekend to stay as bus loads of locals arrive and fill the place up the party boats can be noisy but shut down at 10PM We use the bin as an esky put a plastic bag in and buy some beers and ice at the little shop across the road and settle in for the evening the meals are nice and not expensive although mostly Thai

          Old hotel, clean, but need upgrading. No light in the shower and on bedside. Hose connection on shower broken, and plastic cower on air condition starter fell on the floor. when booking out in the morning it was no water in bathrooms. I had room on 2nd. floor next to river. Maybe my friends and I was unlucky with the rooms?

          Rooms and toilet needs renovation”

          Great service from the staffs

          Curious on staying on a raft, we chose this as it is pretty close to town. about 5-10 mins drive away and out of the city. As it is a raft and made out of wood, sound-proofing is poor and toilet is very old. For the experience and a short nights stay, i think it is okay. Service staff is great and make you feel at home. Overall, on experience and service. I think it is acceptable.

          View of River Kwai, lots of grass for kids to run around

          friendly staff, some can speak english. hotel seems a bit old but they keep the grounds clean. if you come with high expectations, this is not the place to go. rooms provide for basic needs...air con, tv with cable but no english channels or dvd player, hot water in bathroom. we stayed on a flotel. the view was at our backdoor. we sat and took in the serene view of the water. occasional long tail boat would go by, some selling chips and snacks right to your deck from the boat. hotel rents out party barges so provided some entertainment to see the barges go by with strobe lights and thais singing karaoke which is a must see/hear when in thailand. pool is okay, kept clean and maintained but a three star accommodation at best. restaurant food was good but typical plate was 150 baht ($5). if you opt for street food, price decreases to like 50 baht!

          River Raft Resort on the RIver Kwai”

          The floating raft hotel rooms were a unique experience.

          The Duenshine Resort was a great experience and a fun way to enjoy the River Kwai. The hotel is a few miles outside of the "down town" river section of Kanchanaburi, but it was only about a 10 minute drive to town. The Raft Type rooms were right on the river and it was great to wake up to the sounds and sights of river life- fish jumping, long tail boats, birds, stars at night etc. The hotel had a nice staff, pretty good food in the restaurant, a nice pool riverside and a nice quiet setting, except on weekends when there might be a wedding or a group of karaoke partiers from Bangkok that would take one of the floating restaurants/bars by tow up and down the river. Tours can be booked to see the River Kwai, Death Railroad and Erawan and Sai Yok Waterfall. Very nice overall.

          Good location to the main attraction in Kanchanaburi at a reasonable price

          i came already for several times to this hotel; the main reasons are the good location to the main attraction in kanchanaburi town and the reasonable price level. also you can easy access the other tourist attractions in kanchanaburi, but it rather necessary to rent a car, to be mobile. summary for me, good value for money,

          Beautiful gardens and quiet location

          This resort is out of town so it you are want quiet relaxation this is the place. To get to the attractions in town you need to call for a tuk-tuk or taxi. We found the rooms to be clean, but dated. The bungalows are like sometime out of the Hobbit. The river view rooms in the main hotel have a great view of the river, but at night you hear the boats on the river. The pool is great and the grounds are well maintained.
