              Three weeks in Thailand and this place was the only disappointing accomodation. 1. Located about 6km from town which would have been fine if there was more reason to stay at the esort. 2. Pool area is a not pleasing, dated, and ot clean. 3. The so called gym is a complete laugh, a couple old decreped macines in the most discusting foul area. The carpet is filthy with massive rips and pieces missing and an unpleasent odor. 4. The room was ok the bed was like sleeping on a cement pad. 5. The staff were ok, not the thai freindly and service level we received everywhere else. 6. The breakfast was dismal, definatly for the bus loads of chinese who arrive each night. Twice we ate in town bedause of this and even the western food they served was poor qaulity and the most horrid coffee....come on we are in Chaing Rai ! 7. Skip this place .

              It was a really joyful stay here withthe family. Not centrally located, but if you have a car its probably one of the best places to stay. Rooms were big, clean and well equipped. Downside were the TV channels, but the patio over the water well made up for that. I can only recommend staying here.

              Beautiful hotel. Had our own bungalow, was given a free upgrade. The only complaint is the internet did not reach our room. Had to go to the lobby. I hate that. The restaurant was lovely, the food was good. The omelets are outstanding (made to order). The staff was very nice and accommodating. Outside of the internet, EVERYTHING was great.

              I received excellent service from the staff at this resort. The web map was accurate as long as one doesn't expect roads to be a straight as they seem to be on the page. Noah's Ark should be marked as a landmark on the way to the resort. The buildings are magnificent in their timber design giving the customer much to admire. Great bed, an incredible bathroom that opens into the living space and a big tv with disappointingly poor reception. The resort bus or tuk tuk is available to to take the visitor into the town area, about 4km away

              Not a 4-star facility”

              I'm not trashing the hotel, the facilities or the staff, if it was advertised as a 1-star. What i am simply saying is that, this is NOT a 4-star facility. Phowadol and/or Agoda should not be advertising it as such. I booked this hotel for a group that was interested in a 4-star facility with comfortable rooms, nice quite place, clean pool and dining. This was not the case The rooms are very old, no updates, moldy smell, light fixtures hanging by the wires, shower would not drain. Beds are box-spring with sheets. The pool has green patches of algae and that area is completely run down. The dinning area is not set up as advertised either, the hotel is taking in large tour buses from China (good for business i understand) BUT it's at the expense of the registered hotel guests as the swarms of people fill the buffet, leaving it empty and a mess for the hotel guests. we would have been happy to stay, if it had been advertised for what it was, an older facility needing work

              The rooms are ok, but nothing like the photos; very tired, floor was gritty and smelled of damp. Staff spoke little English and given the location (a long way out of town) it seemed a drama to arrange a tuk tuk or taxi. That said, they did their best. Breakfast was fine. Location is painful - nothing around which would be ok if you wanted to just chill at the resort, but it really isn’t that kind of place. I got the feeling they just make their money by getting your buses in cheaply. Avoid, stay in town and enjoy Chiang Rai!

Breakfast-limited choices Staff - at the reception is exceptional very attentive, and accommodating. - Breakfast staff are not friendly at all, no one even will greet you in the morning, not welcoming! And some staff are rude, Staff in the breakfast also having breakfast at the same time..kinda weird Room-spacious and comfy bed - Toilet ~ if you shower, water is all over the floor.. NO toothbrush include in the hotel amenities. Price - is pretty value for money, IF You want nature, and far from everything. BUT for me ~ For my future visit in Chiang Rai I’ll try to find a better hotel with a friendly staff, value for money and close to the city.

              Great for a quiet geetaway”

              We went for a quiet, restful family holiday, and the resort was perfect. It is out of the hustle and bustle of the main town which was perfect for our holiday, and also since we had our own car, had no problems with the hotel not being close (within walking distance) to anything. The hotel is a little old, but the rooms were very clean and very spacious. We were given an upgrade to the deluxe rooms which was wonderful, where the setting was around the pond/garden. Breakfast was pretty extensive, esp when there were other groups in. On the day the hotel was quiet, we could easily order what we wanted and the staff happy to serve. The facilities - pool and gym were good, clean and adequate for our needs, a little old, but fine. In our rooms the internet was not always strong, so had some problems at times. However, this was not a big issue, since we were not there to be dependent on the internet. TV is old, so if you're wanting to connect your computer to the TV, bring the necessary cables. The hotel does however have a decent range of DVDs you can borrow for free which was nice. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely consider staying again.

Other than this, it was a nice hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the wifi free and strong, and the rooms and surrounding gardens are beautiful. It is also in a very convenient location, removed from town but not too far.

              Phowadol is a slightly ageing resort that's big on seminars for local companies. It has a block of rooms and also separate villas, all well-maintained.

              Quiet, large room, good environment

              The room was great, large, spacious and well equipped. We were beside a large pond, which was very peaceful and quiet. Suggest that you have a car if you stay here though - as it is a little out of the way.
