Ban Thai Guesthouse, Sukhothai, Thailand

Home from home...

sunny 33 °C

Having booked this place blindly, using a nameless hotel website (The sceptic in me always doubts those reviews!), I was instantly amazed at the warm and friendly welcome. Being more used to those we find in Europe, I kind of expected the usual derisory grunts, but no, smiles and warmth all-round.

My room's a reasonable size, but it's almost wholly consumed by the doubled bed, meaning that I have to assume a crab-like stance when trying to get from point A to point B. Not an issue, as it's just me! I must make a video though :)

I was relieved to have a room all to myself, following sleepless experiences in Bangkok (squeaky bunks, snoring room mates, and a silent ninja who switched off the air conditioner in the still of the night, curse him/her!).

No breakfast came with the room, so I ordered the Thai muesli for 100baht. Expensive by local standards, but I really couldn't be arsed to look elsewhere. Gosh, a huge helping of nuts, fruit, home-made yoghurt! Filling, I'll say. Alas, the accompanying coffee let it down, as it was instant, and weak.

The ladies running the place are amazing: warm, friendly, amenable, and generous. They're darlings!

After 3 nights thus far, I recommend this place. Still loads of couples, mind ;)
