Fodor's Review

French owner Michel Hermann has expanded his modest guesthouse into one of Sukhothai's finest resort hotels, adding a spa with massage rooms and a sauna. It's favored by visiting archaeologists, historians, and other academics, who feel at home in its cloistered but cozily comfortable ambience (the teak-built rooms, for instance, have no TV, because peace and quiet are valued here above entertainment). Michel's Thai wife Tan is a talented jeweler, whose creations are displayed

and sold in a corner of the property where Sukhothai antiques and pottery are all exhibited. There's no restaurant, but snacks and salads can be rustled up on demand—salade Niçoise is a clear favorite. The breakfasts are also French-influenced, with excellent coffee.
