I went to Tha Ton to look for a long term rental possibility and wound up being sent to Garden Home by another property owner who has a restaurant and several cabins. Kae ? (Kay) is the daughter-in- law of the owners and was on duty. Her English was workable and she was pleasant and accommodating. I rented a bungalow... More

A little bit outside the center (5-10 minutes walk), after the bridge, and after the bus station on the left. Lovely rooms (200-300 bahts for a double) and bungalows between trees along the river. Rooms are spacious and clean, with attached bathroom. A few tables close to the river.. perfect place to relax! Motorbikes on hire, the best way to... More

We did not book ahead and oriented ourselves on the previous Tripadvisor comments. In deed the staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed in a Bungalow for 500,- THB/night. It was clean and nicely furnitured. The bathroom Thai style. The only downside here was that the temperature for the shower was difficult to regulate. The Bungalow has a nice terrace... More

The lovely location is the best part about this place. Its a short walk from the drop off points whether you come by bus from Chiangmai, songthaew from mae Salong(as i did) , or boat from Chiangrai. There are 3 large bungalows just beside the river.... these are the more expensive rooms (I was quoted 1500 baht)... then there are... More

This place was better than we expected. We opted for 500 baht bungalow with AC. Clean and comfortable it is very near the river and just outside of town. Restaurant on premises is good and reasonably priced. Thai coconut soup and curries were excellent.

We drove to Thaton and stayed 3 nights here in one of the 3 river-side cabins, with a balcony overlooking the Mae Kok river. We spent many happy hours relaxing on this balcony, enjoying the bird-life, scenery, and river life. The staff were very friendly, although speaking little English, and helped us arrange a wonderful 6-hour private round-trip boat outing... More

Get a unit by the river as they are beautifully located only a couple of metres from the swift flowing water. The sounds at of the birds and insects at night need to be heard to be believed. the units are basic but comfortable with air con, TV, and good bathrooms.

A late review, missed writing this one: Stayed October 2010. We were travelling by motorcycle and arrived at Tha Ton. Checked out quite a few places and some were expensive by our standards! Garden Home was reasonably priced with private bungalows (ours was very close to the river). Had good ensuite, and quite comfortable for the price. Enjoyed watching the... More

This was my 3rd visit to this delightfully located garden resort accommodation but I was shocked by it's apparent run-down look and feel. I was one of very few customers and I am not surprised. General management and staff was haphazard and inconsistant. I took my usual riverside bungalow and found a half empty coke bottle in the frig with... More

“The bungalows directly at the riverside are a bit overpriced. You have excellent river view from the restaurant!”

“If you can afford it, its best to be in one of the 3 bungalows next to the river.”
