      For the first few days of my stay I found the Rachamankha a haven of tranquility - by the end of the stay a few families arrived - one with three noisy children and this did spoil the peace I had been enjoying! Staff very helpful and the design of the hotel is beautiful - really enjoyed the library. Drain from the shower did smell a little funny. Breakfast was always pleasant but would not recommend dinner here - overpriced for what you can get elsewhere and really does not live up to its reputation - my chicken was a little undercooked.

      Beautiful common areas and pool, nice pool, good location.

      The room is rather simple and definitely not luxurious. The bathroom is overdue for renovation. Breakfast has very limited menu.

      The architecture and decor is suberb. The attention to detail is beyond description. Location is wonderful. It is wonderfully tranquil and reminded me of the Lost City in Beijing.

      The hotel is aesthetically beautiful.

      Concierge service has room for improvement. Anticipation to help is there but language problem is overwhelming. Would recommend only with disclaimer.

      We enjoyed this hotel immensely. The facility itself is beautiful- from the grounds to the decor. The restuarant food- breakfast and dinner- were wonderful. The staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. We would not hesitate to return- as soon as possible.

      I loved almost everything in this hotel, which is maybe one of the nicest I've ever been to ! Everything in this hotel is refined and I wish I spent more than 3 nights there! The hotel itself is beautiful and all the decorations in or outside of the rooms were tasteful & classy. Our deluxe room (#10) was spacious w a superb bed and classic antique Thai furniture. Had I have the choice, I would have certainly grab a room on the first floor, which must have more light and no noise coming from the neighbours upstairs! The swimming area is really pleasant and the pool is clean and big. The communal areas are lovely and relaxing.

      •Super Rooms but a bit dark, w no real external views •no DVDs to borrow from the (lovely) library •a more attentive service around the pool would be appreciated (in 3 days, I've never seen anyone coming for drink orders, and had to fitch towels by myself) •more smiles at reception, please • the breakfast buffet should be more "interesting" and varied
