                Really enjoyed our stay at the Legacy Resort. Even though it was a little secluded from the town, it is definitely a place to be at if you are looking for peace and tranquility. Rooms are a little dated but it is made up by the excellent service provided by the staff. A special mention to the excellent service by the General Manager, Ms Rungnapa Jaruthassanakul who made us feel really welcome. She took the effort to remember our names and on the day we left even presented us with some souvenirs. A nice gesture!

                A Nice Hidden Resort by the River Kwai Noi. ”

                Nice Surroundings, Friendly Stuff and Nice Thai Food

                The initial impression was not so good as the wooden houses look rather scary and worn out and 'hidden' by the trees. But the nice surroundings, greens and fresh air has overcome all little inconveniences. A lot of big trees and flowers as well as some sheeps raised in the resorts added colorful scenery & nature to it. Though the wooden log houses are not very new and modern in design, they are clean and hygienic as housemaids are doing their jobs well. Towels and bedsheets are changed daily. Services are comparable to big resorts but not the facilities.Activities in the resort for young children are cycling, trees climbing, camping etc. The resort has good view of the river which is a plus and most beautiful view are from the breakfast restaurant. Food quality is good but not very wide selection. Nice resort hidden in the jungle, not accessible for public transportation.

                Lovely grounds, comfortable rooms. The main issue we had was agoda said that children could stay free, but they couldn't and they tried to charge us. After 1 hour of sorting out Agoda actually paid for the kids and a room upgrade. Would highly recommend this hotel for the area. Need transport

                Pros: It’s a very green and beautiful resort. Huge ground to walk or bike around. Bike rental available. Well kept gardens and paths. Right by the river. Very quiet and serene. There are sheep for kids feed in the morning. Small playgrounds located all around the resort. Friendly staff and resort owner. Cons: faraway from everything. You will need a car to get around. There’s a restaurant onsite but otherwise not much else. Very limited choices of food for breakfast. The cabins are old and need some upgrades. Overall, it’s cheap and reasonable. We had a pleasant time. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and love nature, this is the place for you.

                The staffs are very helpful in trying to meet most of our needs. The scenery is beautiful and we enjoy the fresh air far from the city. However, this place is not easy to find and really need GPS to guide you there.

The Taste was cold, not really hot especially boil rice. The resort was nice view and good environment. The Water Supply from the sink wasn't clear for the first arrival but next day was better. The Pool wasn't clear as other hotel. If we have more time, will stay longer.

                When I asking for recept , they told me to ask Agoda because they don't have it ! Resort was huge, you have to ride a bicycle or travel by your own car. The location was complicate. Far from main road. But it's a nice quite place.

                not worth money and time”

                we booked 3 nights cuz we thought it would be great to relax in a peaceful resort, working with laptop since they said free wifi. the first thing that dissappointed us was a room that had nothing to do with the pictures they put on thier website. second was there was no hair dryer in the room. bed, bedding set looks old and i even didn't want to touch the blanket. eww it was extremely different from what we saw on website. the third was no "wifi"! i asked they said only available at lobby, but we couldn't connect to wifi at all during our stay. the manager, i guess that was there wasn't willing to help to solved the wifi problem. he just said he could connect. yeah right, he was the only one that could, but none of the guests. i will not recommend this hotel to anyone. for me? never again!

                Countryside relaxation”

                large grounds, duplex bungalows, efficient staff

                We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Legacy River Kwai. It is definitely a countryside hotel on the River Khwae Noi that catered to bus tours, company excursions and guests that drive there with vehicles. The grounds are extensive and well kept. The bungalows are a little dated and showing wear and tear. The size of rooms are spacious. I understand some have kitchenettes but ours did not. Staff is friendly and responsive. If you want to go anywhere off the grounds you pretty much need your own vehicle. There are some historical sites in the vicinity. Depending on what kinds of bus groups are there is can be quiet or not. One night there was a company event with some very loud music. The buffet breakfast were pretty picked over by the bus groups so can't say anything good about them. The in-house restaurant is okay but pricely by Thai standards. There are some activities there but they are all pay extra (including the swimming pool). All in all a pleasant stay.

                Great Dining area but awful rooms”

                Dining/common area

                Agoda stated that the hotel had disabled facilities for my wheelchair bound Aunt, and I confirmed this through direct contact with the hotel, but it is absolutely NOT true. The approaches to the cottages are over muddy rocky ground, there are big steps up into the rooms, the bathroom entrances are too narrow for even a small wheelchair and they have big steps down into the room (> 6 inches). Even the reception/dining area has steps everywhere and the public bathroom is not accessible to wheelchairs. The rooms are in very poor condition overall and not worth the money.

                Great place to be with nature but the internal transport system is old and emits pollution.

                The breakfast is just normal, the choices are really minimal but the view is great. The service of the staff is good. Overall, we had a good stay at The Legacy. Finding the place is an adventure though! Need more signs!

                Peaceful retreat”

                Peacefulness. Friendly staff. Large rooms.
                Air conditioning was noisy, and one needed their own transport due to the proximity to Kanchanaburi and the surrounding area.

                The near silence (other than the birds and the sound of the flowing river) provided an amazing contrast to the noise of the city (Bangkok). The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms clean and spacious. However the a/c in the room was noisy and barely capable of keeping control of the heat (it was mid April, and very hot). The food was quite good, and the staff very friendly and helpful. A vehicle of some sort was essential, otherwise the cost of taxis etc made it prohibitive.

                Nice and relaxing next to the river. Friendly staff. Relatively cheap.
                Location if you do not have you own transportation. Cabins are basic and dated.

                The hotels location is right on the river but as its out of town you need your own transport. The "cabins" are pretty basic and dated but they need our needs. Although it was large the resort was very quiet and relaxing and the staff were friendly.
