A Wonderful Place Indeed !”
I highly recommend this peaceful and affordable hotel, worth every baht I paid. Good location, clean rooms, well-designed wooden furniture, very beautiful gardens, nice swimming pool, lovely footpaths, helpful and smiley staff, delicious food. I would definitely stay here again when going to Kanchanaburi :)
Dear Khun Thuangporn Thank you for your comments. It's our pleasure to know that you have an enjoy moment here. We are wating for your next visit Kind Regards Pinnuch Guest Relation Officer
Very good swimmingpool”
The hotel is really nice, it is just at the river Kwai. The restaurant had a super view to the river. The swimmingpool is huge and warm. The staff was kind, but they was not able give me a map of Kanchanaburi. I guess it should not be a problem in a hotel. The room was nice, like on the pictures. The only negative regarding the room was a shower. We could shower only with very cold oder with hot water, there was not middleway. The breakfast is delicious with great selection. We tried the restaurant for dinner also, the food was good, but the portion was a little.
Lovely relaxing place to stay”
Had a great stay at the hotel, great pool and view of the river.As a paddle boarder it was amazing to go boarding with SUP hire Thailand who are based near the hotel, The Hotel is near the town so very easy to see the bridge and other places of interest.
Great place to stay.”
The hotel is very *Green*, well design, very Balinese but you won't get this price in Bali resort. It's so worth of money. Good breakfast. It has what you need to start up your day. Nice swimming pool that you can chill during your stay. Of cause, the river side provides you some sitting area to enjoy the scenery. The only problem is you may need a car to travel out. Overall it is a good choice and glad that I made the correct decision.
Awesome, peaceful, just perfect! It’s the perfect hidden jewel. Not too big, not too small, just perfect. Not too luxurious, not too budgetty, just perfect. Awesome location on the river bank, perfect pool, just perfect… ROOMS: Nice size, cozy decoration, not too fancy. CLEANESS: Perfectly clean HOTEL AREAS: The most perfect of all. Space for yoga, meditation on the little huts that are all over. Peacefull terraces on the river bank, Nice swing by the river. Perfect pool. All the hotel areas are just awesome. Live music during dinner time. STAFF: Attentive BREAKFAST: Really good, buffet style. Food in general was awesome! VALUE FOR MONEY: EXCELLENT!
Value to the price. Professional service”
Very wide area beside the River. Enjoy the good swimming pool. No lift to go to 2nd floor. Swimming pool only lmit to 7PM. No light surround swimming pool. For the dinner, food and environment is excellent.
Nice resort close to the river”
Cons - hard to get transport to and from hotel to town. No took tools. So at the mercy of minivans and taxi drivers. WiFi was reasonable, food and drinks average price. No tea/coffee facilities in the room which is disappointing. Mosquitoes obviously an issue near a river PROS Beautiful surrounds and large pool with small pool for young children. Cost available for kids. Staff very helpful. Great breakfast. Nice riverside area to sit and eat or have a drink.
Everything was perfect”
Highlight of our whole trip. no complaints or suggestions. restaurant was awesome for all meals. Dinner along the river was a treat. one of our favorite hotels and locations of all time. front desk can arrange any outing or event.
good place to stay.”
This is my second time staying here. Staff were good and friendly as always. Room is okay with traditional decoration of woods. Breakfast was good, variety of choice and I ate a lot! Value for your money, value for your stay. Will be my first priority when visit Kanchanaburi. Love.
Nice and relaxing hotel”
The hotel is closed to the city of Kanchanaburi and it is convenient to find tourist attractions and places to eat. The hotel and the room are clean and spacious. The staff is nice and smile all the times. The swimming pool is perfect and you should not miss it. We have wide variety of breakfast buffet. The only disadvantage is that the loud nice at night from the opposite site of the river at night until 11pm.
Romantic views, beautiful swimming pool, traditional decorations”
This resort is getting older but has a natural wood charm in the rooms which helps compensate for its aging. But it is located on a sprawling and very well manicured estate with private access to to a large section of the river. It is quiet and peaceful and well staffed. It does require transportation to get to downtown however. The swimming pool is gigantic and well tended and beautiful. Breakfast is fine.
The Agoda price made staying at this lovely resort affordable for me. The resort is located 5 minutes out of town and right on the river. Beautiful well maintained gardens (huge staff numbers), and the best swimming pool at any resort I've stayed at in Thailand over the past 12 years of holidaying at least once each year. The restaurant is reasonably priced and weather permitting is out doors right on the river bank , service is exceptional. I will definitely be returning.
Good location, easy to find. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also good. Good view,good for relaxation. The only one comment is the heater in the bathroom was not hot, should fix it. I will stay here again for the next trip to kanchanaburi. 10/10 for Royal Riverkhwai Resort&SPa. Cheers :-)
Lovely resort, just book it...”
A lovely resort on the banks of the River Kwai (Mae Man Kwae). Lovely gardens, great swimming pool, nice restaurant with evening (gentle) live music, reasonable amount of English spoken. Rooms were fine. Sufficient parking with guard on gate. A quiet retreat that is a paradise if you are looking for an escape from the chaos of Bangkok.
Very Peaceful. A wonderful place to stay with family of all ages.”
My family came to visit us in Thailand and we brought them here. It is a wonderful place to stay. We were here for 2 nights. The breakfast is nice and there are many choices. This is a nice place to stay and do day trips or just stay and relax at the resort. I would HIGHLY recommend it!
This is a wonderful hotel on the River Kwai. The gardens were immaculate, the room clean and comfortable, and the dinner generous and delicious. The spa was a wonderful treat before dinner. This is an excellent hotel for exploring Kanchanaburi, or just a quite retreat from the city. It is outside the city center, so a car is recommended.
Beautiful setting, great food, nice pool”
The resort's beautiful, well kept gardens and river bank setting make for a nice place to relax. The pool is large and clean and the food is special. Breakfast includes a nice selection of Thai and Western food. The buildings are not new, but are clean and well maintained and staff are friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the slow internet, but all in all it was a wonderful, relaxing 5 days.
Beautiful grounds, nice breakfast, 10 minutes from town”
We stayed here for 4 days, it is very peaceful (a little highway traffic noise even though it is set back from the road.) The rooms are simple but the grounds and pool are beautiful. The pool is huge and a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing or hiking. The breakfast is great and a nice variety to fit everyones needs. We did not eat lunch or dinner here, but they have a very nice patio right on the river. The resort is about a 10 minute drive from town, they do have a free one way shuttle service available 2 times a day, or you can request a ride an hour in advance. We had a car so did not need to use it. You really do not need to leave the resort if you are happy to eat there. There is also a spa that is nice and over looks the river. Thai massages and foot massages range from 600-800baht. We were happy with our stay here.
Lovely Hotel in Quiet Surroundings”
Lovely hotel in a good location next to the river. Quiet surroundings, good service and good reasonable food. I would suggest that coffee and tea facilities in the room and a room safe would be beneficial. Also, stopping the Free WiFi at 8am on check out day seems a bit petty!
Charming Stay along the River Kwae”
The resort has nice garden welcoming the guests, the swimming pool look nice but the quality of water must be improved. If you come in a group, booking the large chalet with multi rooms is available. The resort located besides the river kwae, gala dinner at the river side has some exotic experience.
