                Almost everything you want and for such a cheap price ”
                For the price you certainly can't complain, WiFi, aircon, stunning river views, fridge, safe..... Even a nice cheap breakfast option. Everything was going so well until I came back after a day out and found the room hadn't been touched. I'm not bothered about towel changing daily or even bed being made to be honest, but I'm surprised northing was done if I'm honest. Maybe it was an oversight today. I guess I'll never know.

                Avoid this place. Looks nice in the pictures but actually it isn't. We got the wrong, downgraded room as the booked one wasn't available and no refund. The terrace is on the metal roof at top of the rooms and you hear every step. Heavy bangs and high noise all night long. Nothing changed even tho we complained several times. Rooms and facility were dirty. Got 2 single beds instead of the booked double bed.

                The place was clean but my sheets weren't changed over the 3 nights I was there. The towels were torn, the vinyl on the floor was torn and lifted when you walked on it, nowhere to place your luggage other than the floor. The had a hot water unit in the bathroom but it didn't work. The kitchen was never open. The room was noisy, you could hear people walking past and late at night you hear the local reggae band. If you can avoid this place.

                Shack-like property”
                The property looked like a shack, it's not worth the price. Although it does face the river from the end of the corridor of the "river-view rooms", (it was a nice sunset view for us sitting at the end of the corridor), those rooms only see a side of the river and there were garbage and other shacks next to it. The "lounge chairs" or swing chairs were run down and dirty.

                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.

                I stayed in a superior room for two nights before heading off for a night in Erawan and came back for one night. I thought I'd stay in a standard room as its only one night and I want fussed about the river view. The standard room is not just a superior room without the view. It's far smaller, has no safe and was in desperate need of an update. It may have been clean but felt very dirty. Pay the extra and go for a superior room. Staff were very nice and very friendly.

                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.

                Neat, clean & comfortable
                The hotel is located down a small soi on the river. I would not recommend walking here. On arrival at the hotel, you must first descend steps to the river bank and then climb steps to a roof top deck and then descend a ladder to reception. You must remove your shoes before walking to the room. The room has a large bed with a sliding glass door overlooking the river. Clean and quiet for a good rest. Everything is located in town; just a few km away from all the action. We did not try the hotel restaurant. The railway area was our goal!

                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.

                The guesthouse is near to the city centre, staff are friendly and approachable.
                The steps towards the counter downstairs will be a bit difficult for young children and elderly to move. There is also a sewerage smell in the toilet but that doesn't bother me much. Overall a good experience as the clean room makes up for its shortcomings.

                Go for the location and the view ”
                Tara Raft is a decent enough place to stay. My room was not very clean and did not look like the photos at all. The bathroom was gross. However being on the water was really nice and it was really relaxing to spend the evening on the roof with a book. The location was great, just a short distance from many of the main attractions and tourist points. Worth the money I paid for it for sure!

                Great location, but lacking facilities ”
                Excellent location with view straight ON THE river Kwai. But bit worn down, no restaurant... Ok for one night.
