What guests are saying:
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.

Brilliant place if you love waking up in the morning to a nice river view. Nothing fantastic in terms of facilities but definitely value for what you pay for.

        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.

        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!

        the staff is very friendly, she can speak very well English. The dining area is a bit small but it has everything. The sleeping space is quite bit and a power point just beside the bed, very convenient. The location is a bit difficult to find because it locate between road 55 and 57 and car could not be reach there, need some walk.

        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.

        I quite liked it. Room was very clean, Bed was fine, everything was good. The only negative thing is that the walls seem to be very thin so you hear when someone talks in a neighbourroom or in front of the door. If you are okay with that then I can recommend it.

        Tara Raft Guest House in Kanchanaburi”
        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 comfort, price
        I would definitely recommend this place to adults with no physical impairments. However, due to the many steps and staircases it may became a nightmare for those whith limited mobility. Moreover, there is insufficient protection and a child may easily fall into the river. Be aware of that if you travel with children. That made us very anxious!

        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.

        Host was good and helped us with what she could. Bed in our room was good, but overall impression of the place (location and tidiness) was just alright. Think you can find better accomodation for less or the same amount of money. Because you are situated over the river, be aware of few mosquitos and lizards (not dangerous _ but you actually dont want to see them...)

        Off putting reception lady supervisor ”
        Avoid this place. Stayed here a few times before but gone down hill. The reception supervisor lady (named Wan - means sweet in thai) was as sour as two lemons up someone’s a hole. She basically slaved the Burmese housemaids around. The property had many steep dangerous stairs from the car park and basically when Wan noticed any guest arriving or leaving (security camera) she basically calls out to the housemaids “I am going to the toilet, take the guest luggages up and down the stairs”. This happened a few times and she didn’t know we could understand thai. We instead carried our own luggages. On the other hand, the Burmese housemaid staff were really friendly and helpful and you could tell they were scared of Wan. Anyway, feel free to stay there if you like the idea of slavery. Property is ok. Cramped room. Many other options and cheaper close by (see next door property VN guesthouse, which share the same car park and which has a fantastic restaurant overlooking the water). Shop around peeps.

        Combined toilet and shower, which means wet floor when going to the toilet. Water leaks out of the shower into the room entry way and then into the hall way...the other room our friends were staying in had the same problem. Access to the rooms requires a trek over the building and down some steep steps, very awkward with baggage. The television had so much static it was unwatchable, seems to be an antenna issue as our traveling companions had the same issue in their room. Although it had air-conditioning and was comfortable, there is better value else where in Kanchanaburi.

        Poor”
        We got a really good deal so I suppose the old adage of you get what you pay for applies but having travelled around a lot we got much more for our money at other places. If you choose to stay here make sure you opt for superior room otherwise you're stuck in a very small room in the back with no view of the river. The room and bathroom were in desperate need of refurbishment with torn lino and a damp smell. It's saving grace was that it was only a few minutes walk to the main bar/restaurant street, and the museum and cemetery.
