                Great place! ”

                Beautiful view, lovely room, helpful staff (and cheap!)

                Had a lovely couple of nights at Tara Raft. Being on the river Kwai with amazing views and our own little balcony to sit out on and enjoy was the highlight. We had a twin room but the beds were next to each other so it felt like we had a huge king size bed. Location wise it is very close to kanchanaburi station and about 20 minutes walk to bus station and 5 minutes walk to street with bars, restaurants. Clean room, good wifi, great facilities, helpful and kind staff and all for a very very good price! If we are ever back in Kanchanaburi we will defiantly be staying here again - thank you Tara Raft!

                Great base to unwind after a long day sightseeing”

                The comfy bed. The view of the sunset. The peace and quiet

                Great 2 night stay at the Tara Raft house. The location overlooking the river Kwai is beautiful as is the sunset. Grab a beer and sit in the swing and watch the sun go down. The rooms are on a floating pontoon. The further out your room is on the pontoon, the better the view. Ask for rooms 6,8 or 10. The bed was so comfy unlike all others I have slept in in Thailand. Only a 5 min walk to the centre for food/bars. As a solo female traveller I felt safe walking home despite having to walk down a side road as the locals were very welcoming and friendly. They only serve breakfast here but the VN raft house is next door if you fancy a bite to eat and don't want to walk into town. I ate there and the food is good. Definitely recommend the Tara raft house to stay at.

                Great price, Overlooking the River Kwai, Clean room

                I stayed at Tara Raft for only one night but i really enjoy it so much. I love the stunning view of sunset over the River Kwai from the room balcony. You can sit there and relax. In the night time you can still enjoy listening to the river flow and peaceful atmosphere. Even you can hear the other guests walking from outside the room but that did not bother me too much. Hotel only sell for room only but you can easily find the local restaurants or you can try food at Tara Bed & Breakfast which has the same owner and it is about 2 minutes by shuttle pick up. If you are looking for quiet relaxing with riverside room. I highly recommend Tara Raft for your stay in Kanchanaburi

                Amazing view over the river, near to the centre but in quite area, the master bed so big!

                We did not had breakfast also we did not book or use it there because in our opinion it was to expensive compare with the restaurants in the town. The house is located 5 minutes walking from the centre in a quite area with an amazing view over the river. We have been before at Sam River Rafthouse nextdoors but it did nog excist anymore so we booked Tara Raft House. We love to be ON the river with our room floating we really enjoyed floating on the river at our balcony enjoy the view with a Chang beer. The receptionist in the evening is a really Nice guy and funny but he doesn't speak english but we enjoyed that. Always helpfull wit opening our Chang beers. The bed is very huge and good plus you have you own shower and very hot! If you love relaxing on your balcony with a great view then defintly book Tara Raft House!

                Location with comfort”

                We had a river view room which is actually on a floating raft with a fantastic view of the river and sunset. The bed was probably the most conformable one I have ever stayed on in a hotel (which is a lot of hotels). Several English language channels on a 40"TV. Fast WiFi and almost silent aircon. The room was small as was the bathroom but that is no problem for us. Indeed we extended our stay from three nights to five and then seven. The location is so quiet and peaceful watching the occasional boat on the river but is only a five to ten minute walk down a small road to the centre of all the bars(which are guite numerous and cheap) etc. Same distance to one of the war cemetery's and museum and about two kms to the bridge. Before going to Kanchanaburi we assumed the town would be around the bridge where as in reality it is two kms down the street. Overall a great room but with no real other amenities other than cheap beer and the only food it sells is a cooked breakfast which is not spectacular but they will fetch it to your room. Time permitting we would have stayed even longer and I'm sure that we'll be back.

                Tara Raft GH is a perfect place to stay on the water and a little away from the busy River Kwai bridge area. You realise you are on the water when boats go by and the rafts are caught in the wash. Staff are friendly, have a little English. I would stay here again.

Front desk can call for tuktuks if you need to go further. Tours can be booked at VN Guesthouse which is next door. Highly recommend Tara Raft!

                Enjoyed my stay at Tara Raft. Staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms are fairly small but well equipped at a good price. Tara Raft is in walking distance of some good bars and eating places. The River Kwai Bridge is about a 30 minute walk away. Found it very quiet and relaxing place to stay. Everything is clean and tidy although there is a slight smell from the toilet shower room. This was not at all bad and did not spoil my stay here in anyway. I would use Tara Raft again.

                Location, room quality, staff

                I booked Tara because I wanted a raft room and had tried a few others over the years. Location was good, a couple of hundred metres down river from Jolly Frog and all the action of that area. If you have a mobility issue, the Tara Raft is not for you because there are stairs, very shallow steps and very steep steps. The bed was huge, two doubles side by side, great pillows, and in the middle a huge red, heart shaped pillow. Was I about to receive company?? Breakfast was good, ber reasonably priced, and the staff very helpful and friendly. I'd rate this a bit above the average 2 star, and would easily recommend it, but keep in mind the steps issue.

                Balcony on the River, communal deck, private bath

                This place has quite a bit of potential. The rooms are well sized and have great balconies on the water (all guest rooms are in one floating building). It's a great and calming view of the River Kwai. Some party boats at night, but they stopped by midnight. They were improving the place every day we were there (I think it just switched ownership and they're fixing it up). The rooftop deck is promising once they get it fully together. There's an open gym in the parking lot. We had an infestation of sugar ants come through, so be sure to put away food in your minifridge and still watch for ants. The staff did not speak English, but would call a guy when translation was needed. If they get someone who speaks English and finish the rennovations, this place will be great. The main Tara B&B in town may be better at coordinating tours and providing information, but we went to the nice VN Guesthouse next door for really helpful advice and bookings. Tara is quiet but a short walk (about 2 blocks) from the rows of bars & restaurants.

Unfortunately, we got food poisoning and stayed here longer than planned for, and the staff were very accommodating. There are many geckos outside the rooms but they did not bother us (same goes for any gentle rocking of the raft.)

                clean room, excellent wifi, good food

                The Tara Raft is located on the river kwai, we booked a deluxe room of which they are twelve. These are the rooms that float on the river. We, unfortunately, were allocated room 7 which like all the uneven numbered rooms overlooked a disuse fish farm and boat yard. However, if you have an even numbered room (2-10), you have an abstracted view of the river. I would therefore, strongly recommend to insist on room numbers 2-10 when booking. The room itself was comfortable and modern. The only downside being the smell from the bathroom (which previous posts have mentioned), which I think comes directly from the river. Another problem is that the raft is made from metal and when people are walking to and from the hotel, you hear them walking on your roof. The advantage is, it is a five-minute walk from bars and restaurant and 30 minutes walk to the famous bridge and Jeath War Museum.

                Walking distance to Kanchanaburi station, Good view for the double river view room, and relaxing area. Only thing was walls are a bit thin, which is to be expected due to raft design, and bathroom has some drainage issues which needs to be fixed due to the odour. Having said that, would still recommend.

                The only less satisfactory feature is the state of maintenance. Be it not critical yet though, it would be good to start repairing and replacing broken items in the rooms. Will book Tara Raft again. That's for sure.

                Choose this guesthouse if you'd like to sleep on a nice raft on the River Kwai. It's clean and staff's kind. They helped us out with a few calls when the minivan to Ayutthaya was full (we got a private taxi for only 2000bht, 1:45hr drive :)). It's near (5min walk) the guesthouse street with bars and restaurants, so it's quiet on your raft. And it's only a short tuk-tuk drive to the bridge. Do not pay more than 40/50bht :)

                I can really recommend Tara Raft. Only one point of attention: the location is in an alley that is really dark at night, so when it is dark I would take a taxi/tuktuk back to Tara Raft.
