Safari type near the river

Posted 13-Mar-2017
Overall ok. Staff supportive and good communication with offices in Bangkok when special requests. Still there is room to improve. Prices of private tours very expensive. Commuting here can be a crazy adventure. Better plan ahead with a car if possible.

Falling short of expectations

Posted 22-Aug-2016 on Hotels
In terms of value for money this hotel was a disappointment: no light in the bathroom; lukewarm water under low pressure from a barely working handle; slow spotty wi-fi often dropped connection; some rest areas were in disarray; several small requests to staff weren't fulfilled adequately. These are all minor annoyances for a budget hotel, but there are certain expectations from a hotel that charges $100/night and attempts to position itself in the upper tier. But there were a few nice things about the Camp: tasty buffet-style dinner, decent breakfast (both included in the price), lovely pool, plenty of mountain bikes, and good photos. There's really nothing to do in the area, unless you splurge for a pricey tour. The amazing Hellfire Pass Museum is too far, on top of a very long steep hill; you have to be in great shape to ride a bike up there (and back). Opt to stay closer if your aim is the Museum (the best museum in the entire country); it costs about 200-400 Baht/pax to fetch a ride to the Camp from the railway station.

Gorgeous river views

Posted 09-Mar-2016 on Hotels
Beautiful river location, great food, and helpful staff. The only down side is transportation is a bit difficult for tourists. It is highly over priced. However the whole area is lovely so is worth it if you are not a budget traveler.

Good enough for one visit, but wouldn't go back

Posted 26-Dec-2015 on Hotels
The good: mattress was comfortable; view from restaurant deck was pretty; the little pool was refreshing but not big enough to really swim in; it's close to the Hellfire Pass museum. The not-so-good: eating on lawn around bonfire instead of on lovely deck; not enough info given upon arrival, e.g., no info about transport times to local sights and no quiet time guidelines (we had noisy neighbors in a nearby tents our second night; tents are NOT hotel rooms). There are no other places to eat unless you have a car and even then, it'd be a long drive. It should be emphasized that the camp site was an actual POW camp. The history was hidden in the little museum, which we didn't visit until just before we left. (Although maybe it is one the website; I don't remember.) The site is supposed to include a cemetery, but the staff didn't seem to know where it was. One visit was enough for us.

Bedtime at 8.30.

Pros: Views of the river were very nice.
Cons: New Tents WIFI New Bicycles Cheaper trips Bar open later Mobile phone ban - Could go on - Sorry run out of space, have to shorten
Location: Nothing much within an easy walk or achievable on the provided bikes
The wife and I booked here to stay three nights. We only stayed two nights and left a night early. The camp is in the middle of nowhere and without transport you are stuck there. We arrived by private car transfer. It is true that the place is in a beautiful location with amazing views over the river. On arrival we were shown to our tent and unpacked. The tent was well worn with the odd rip here and there. We were very disappointed to find that none of the window blinds could be secured. The tent had been stretched to make it taught but this made the window blinds too short. We did not complain at the time as the only solution was to move tent and we were not prepared to pack and unpack again. I also noticed that the metal fan and the metal kettle were not electrically earthed. I realise that wiring standards vary from country to country, but this is potentially dangerous and an electric shock hazard. The place was reasonably clean and the bed very comfortable. WIFI signal was very poor at the tent but did improve towards reception. Food portions were generous, often very tasty but not authentic Thai. Our BBQ on the first night with the American Country music and BBQ pork kebabs was more like the US of A, rather than Thailand. However, it was nice to sit outside around a fire. Second nights evening meal wasn’t as good as the first. I think only 4 tables dined so instead of a buffet, food was brought to each table. At around 8 pm most people had finished dining and a

Camping in nature

Great place to spend a weekend, calm, relaxing, surrounded by nature. Well located with close access to Tiger Temple, Hellpass and Bridge on River Kwey. Recommend!
