This hotel is typical for many facilities in Thailand. When first opened, it may have been impressive but there has been very little or very poorly performed maintenance in many years. We stayed in two raft rooms. The rooms were ridiculously old fashion and in poor condition. One room was missing a telephone. The deck had rotted over the years... More

This hotel has some very bad reviews but we stayed here for 2 nights in the river raft rooms whilst we went around sightseeing. We found them quirky and quite colonial in style. They were clean and beautiful views of the river. We ate a la carte which was fine apart from the burgers. Staff were all very helpful. There... More

It is a nice Hotel but it had his heydays. Food is very basic. There is also a buffet available but it is mostly for tourist groups which stay overnight. Nice and friendly staff. It does look like that the owners of the hotel are planning to open another tract of the hotel complex. We have been to the Erawan... More

We stayed here as part of a package tour to Hellfire Pass for Anzac Day in April 2015. Having stayed at various hotels of various star ratings in Thailand over the last six years, we class this place as the worst of the worst. The rooms are dirty, there was no soap, no coffee making facilities, the bed linen looked... More

This resort could be great, and maybe was once. But those days are long gone. It's in a great location, on the banks of the River Kwai and just ten minutes from Hellfire Pass, which is why we stayed here. However, the whole place is extremely rundown and badly in need of some TLC. We stayed in one of the... More

Sprawling establishment that appears to be expanding even further. Two large pools. Good for couples and families. It has seen better days but i suppose things go bad quickly in the jungle humidity. The large bed was two singles pushed together and made for a sub-optimal sleep. The only major gripe was the attitude of the staff. Grumpy, disinterested and... More

After a quiet week at another resort I wanted a bit more to see and do. River Kwai Village is the place - right in the centre of activities and sight seeing in Kanchanaburi province. Had a room on the rafts which was beautiful. The rising and falling of the river (with dam activity about 80 km upstream) means that... More

Not good. Meaby because we were the only guests. Summary of complaints: refrigarator loudness and work badly, airo noisy, toilet water keep flowing, shower terrable, shower curtain to short, no power points, Overall not good. The only good thing is the place of the venue. At the river.
