If you can't deal with that, have a jog around your local zoo. Excellent staff, Anil and Rey (?) friendly and enthusiastic; extremely helpful guides Duncan and Desmond saved my bacon...

The room and bathroom is very spacious. Free upgrade to aircond room. However, aircond is only functioning after 6pm. Make sure you stay away from the room during day time and get yourself exploring jungles and caves. Nice breakfast and excellent service. However, the lighting inside room and bathroom got to be improved. No internet line from Celcom and Digi....

Nice bedrooms, not warm water in every room. Fantastic Service and lovely people running this inn! Our few days saw floods and they went out of their way to help us get to the park. Right opposite resort which you can also spend some time at!

Very nice folks. Comfortable room and good food service. Great location. The only disappointment was when the solar fan went off during the afternoon (it had been rainy so there was an insufficient charge).

We enjoyed our stay at the Benarat Inn but it was not quite what we were expecting. The staff were helpful and friendly but the accommodation was basic at best. A lot could be done to upgrade the rooms although the food was very good and the location next to a river was lovely.
