You need to have your own transport to stay here. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff friendly but we needed our interpreter as very little English spoken. Dining a little shambolic but eventually food was delivered. Breakfasts diabolical but evening meals great. Pleasant outlook and grounds. Unfortunately parties from other guest rooms ruined sleep.

We walked into this hotel on a drive from Udon to Chiang Mai. The hotel offered 2 rooms, 1 for 2200 thb/night and one for 1200 thb/night. We choose the 2200 thb/night room and were NOT impressed. The quality of the room was probably equivalent to a 800-900 baht/night room--yet they were charging double AND it looked like the place was empty. There was no drain in the shower room--just a hole that was full of grime. The rack for the towels fell off and into the toilet. The bed was hard as a rock, and the pillows were the 180thb ones you can buy from Tesco Lotus.

The room did have a nice and large balcony that overlooked rolling hills and a stream (which was dry during May).

This is a delightfull stopover for us as we journey from Chiang Mai Thailand to Vientiane Laos once every 2 months. The view rooms are always clean in the older Bungalow wing (baht 1300)or the newer modern hotel wing(baht 1500-1800); all rooms have nice balconies or terraces. The rooms and the restaurant overlook a flowered terrace of waterfalls, streams, pools and bridges. The food is decent; the restaurant is not exceptional.

Phu Rua is over 3000 feet in altitude and is a center for the flower trade. They also have vineyards which produce a mediocre wine and a good brandy. Phu Rua also has a National Park looming above it which is worth a day trip; there are lovely views from the park top north to Laos.

We make the land journey through Lampang via Utteradit via Chet Trakkan National park and on through Nakkon Thai most of which is back road and gives a great feel for Thailands rural North. There is an spectacular Temple (Watt) in the hills overlooking nearby Dan Sai which hosts the Phi Ta Kon Ghost festival in late June.

This resort is easy to find being on the main road just outside Phu Rua.
Its a mixture of old and new with the older style accomodation gradually being replaced.
The modern accomodation was fully booked when we went so we stayed in an old style bungalow which was of a good size but pretty spartan inside.It did have a balcony where you had lovely views of the mountains and surrounding scenery.
The area around the resort is very picturesque and its main draw,I would say.
We ate in the restaurant and the food was not too bad.
Phu Rua,itself,is a very quiet town.Nothing too much to do but to drive around and enjoy the lovely scenery,at around 3000 feet and to chill out eating and drinking.Its very popular with the Thais as a weekend retreat because of the cooler climate and nice scenery.
There are some lovely flower markets in and around town where you can pick up some real bargains to take home,also fresh fruits like pineapples and tamarinds.
Note I've given 3 stars for this resort but if we had stayed in a more modern room,quite possibly I would have given it 4 stars.

Well located in Phu Rua but needing some TLC.
We were the only guests for breakfast and dinner both of which were made to order. Nice views over fields to the hills behind. Had some chalets but they were not in use. Topend price for local area without topend finish or facilities

I stayed here a few years ago and was very impressed with the resort and the setting. Unfortunately, the place is showing signs of neglect. The rooms are still nice, but in need of minor maintenance issues. It was quite clear the hotel is running on a skeleton staff. The grounds are in need of some TLC as well and the beautiful canyon falls is dry. Breakfast was made to order both Thai and Western fare. Good food.

This is the oldest resort in this popular district of Loei Province Thailand. Though, it is old, but the property is well kept, clean and comfortable to stay. Several types of room are available to suit your group or your taste. My favorite spot is the terrace restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner while watching small water fall down below. The location is on the main road to Phurua, so you can't miss it.

This hotel is rundown, but partially makes up for it with great views out the back of the motel units - over a stream and waterfalls. It is difficult to use the balcony however because there is no covering and it is fully exposed to sun all day. A covering over the balconies would make ALL the difference.

Although there are Internet routers on every floor (including right outside our room), the Internet never worked and the staff never made any attempt to rectify the problem over the 2 nights we stayed. We needed the Internet when we were there, so had to go to the lobby to use it which was an inconvenience.

We stayed here one night as a stop on the way home from our North Thailand trip. The location is easy to find as it next to the main road. We reached the hotel late around midnight and found out that the front desk is not 24 hours. However, they left the key at the counter but all light were off so it was hard to find. We got 3 rooms on second floor of hotel building. One of the rooms had some weird smell which I can't bare it, had to spray my own perfume around so I could close my eyes to sleep that night. The breakfast was decent. They made fresh fried rice and serve us the plate of watermelon at the table. The manager also came to apologize for not being there for our check-in which was fine.

I have stayed at the Phurua on two occasions, one in the off season and one during the high season. Room rates are 50% lower in the off season. Beautiful scenery. Rooms were nicely appointed, though the patio door did not work on my last stay and some light bulbs were burned out. Simple maintenance issues that I would expect to be handled quickly. Breakfast was provided in the room rate.
