I have come to this place many times, simply because there are not many choices after a certain time in this area. It certainly haven't been because of the good quality or service. As "Bruin125" writes, the owner is a constant talker. Since I have been there some times, I always try to avoid him. He does not get a... More

1st. The service is so terrible you really do need to experience it to grasp how bad it really is. As in other reviews yes It has the worst pizza I have ever seen I would have said taste, but it has none. The pool seems nice at first, but look closer and you'll see it needs lots of attention....

Pro: the pool is the main selling point. Restaurant does a range of Western, Thai and Asian fusion foods. Food quality not bad, sometimes very slow. Overall staff friendly and professional, you get the odd one who's useless even when speaking Thai. Con: whole place feels over priced, poor value. Rooms are showing age, food and beer tad pricy. Recommend... More

I have been to many Hotels in Thailand over the last 10 years and this was the first time in Kranuan. I read the reviews and was impressed. I was there on the 12th Aug and as soon as I entered the hotel I was treated like a VIP. The staff were great, the Pool side Chalet was clean tidy... More

This was my first visit to Castle Howchow and I took two Thai teenagers with me. It was a last minute idea so we didn't have any swimming trunks or towels. No problem, both can be had on site. We also rented a large plastic beach ball and the three of us had a great time in the pool. We... More
