"I absolutely loved the location. So close to the city centre without paying high prices. Walking to the edge of the moat only took 5 minutes. The hostel was clean and spacious with good air conditioning for each room.…"

About Finlays Cottage

Our aim at Finlays Cottage is to provide the ideal environment so that you can relax and unwind. However, if you feel in an adventurous mood, we can arrange any of the many activities available in Chiang Mai and the surrounding Area. Keith, the Manager is from England and has travelled extensively over the years. Ratree, the Housekeeper/Boss is Thai with good English skills and a warm and welcoming personality - she also cooks a mean breakfast, Thai food on request and pretty damn fine shakes. The breakfasts are free and so is the wireless internet that is available throughout the house and garden area. Please note that there is no dedicated PC for internet access but you can access the wireless internet using your own notebooks, etc.

Inside the house there is a 32" Flat Screen with cable TV, DVD facilities and even an Xbox 360. A fridge is available should you wish to store food/water/whatever.

There are covered lounge areas at the front and back of the house in the garden. The garden itself is an oasis of tranquillity, a great place to kick back after a hard day’s shopping/sightseeing/trekking. We grow our own chillis, sweet basil, pomegranates, mangoes and bananas and if you get sunburnt we even have a great selection of Aloe Vera plants!

Within reason, check in can be made at any time but please let us know beforehand so that we can have your room ready for you. If all rooms are booked you may have to wait until the previous Customer has booked out and we have cleaned the room, but we will make you comfortable in the meantime.

Accommodation Information

There are 4 double bed rooms and 1 twin bed room available. They are all private non smoking rooms (there is plenty of covered shelter in the garden lounge areas for those of you that are smokers). Two double bed rooms are upstairs in the house, the rest of the bedrooms are in the garden annex. The Double Bed rooms have comfortable queen-size beds; the twin bed room has two single beds. All bedrooms have air conditioning, a wardrobe, side tables, and reading lights.

Bed sheets, linen and towels are provided.

The shared bathrooms are of the highest quality and kept spotless. The electric showers provide hot water 24/7.

Location Information

Finlays Cottage is located just to the east of the Tha Phae Gate entrance to the city. It is in a residential area down from the Tha Phae Road on Soi 4. It is 5 minutes walk from the city gate (and hence the Sunday walking street market) and 15 minutes walk from the Night Bazaar. The Mahawan Temple is at the bottom of the street and a short stroll from there is Wat Bupparam. You're never far from a Wat in Chiang Mai!

Innumerable Tuk Tuk's and Song Thaew's (the red trucks) are available on the Tha Phae Road, just round the corner from us which enable you to reach anywhere (within reason).

If you need to go farther afield the Arcade Bus Station and the railway station are about 15-20 minutes away by either Tuk Tuk or Song Khaew, the airport 20 minutes. Bicycles and mopeds/motorcycles can be hired nearby at very reasonable rates. A great way of getting to know Chiang Mai is just cycling around at your own pace, stopping at Wats and cafes as you go.

There are restaurants and bars just a stroll away.
