We are a simple, friendly, family run budget-style guesthouse with only eight twin or double bed rooms. One room of three single beds. No dormitories. We have our own restaurant offering both Thai and Western food. Our public bar is popular with travelers and locals alike, well stocked with extremely cold beer and specialty cocktails. We help with the full range of travel advice and ticketing. The English owner has lived locally and on the islands for nearly fifteen years so is very well connected with many dive shops and resorts on all islands, particularly Koh Tao where he still spends a lot of time to keep information up to date.

Best Massamam Ever

Just try it... It's delicious. After 3weeks in a gastronomy tour in thailand, I can say "yes, there is a restaurant I will come back".

We visited the Farang Bar in Chumpon early in 2014, for a sunset beer or two. The atmosphere seemed quite pleasant and our drinks were served with a smile. Browsing the menu we noticed a "specialty" was Thai Massaman curry. My wife and I have been frequent visitors to Thailand over the last 30 years and have enjoyed many a... More

I would not recommend eating here! The food was horrendous, how you can get French fries wrong I don't know and the burger was like chewing some gum! The toasties are just warm bread with cold cheese in!

The bar staff were friendly and the bar was a typical Thai farang (Foreigner) bar. The drinks were ok as was the bar food. Unfortunately the owner (as I was told he was) was in a terrible mood and was extremely rude to me and my Thai girlfriend.

My girlfriend and I stayed here before and after we came back from koh tao. The owner is a friendly and helpful guy with a good sense of humour. The burger we ate there was pretty tasty. There is also a permenant resident called Hans who can give you many good tips. Across the guesthouse is an amzing thai bbq... More

Went looking for the number 1 restaurant in Chumphon, it was closed so we saw this one and decided to try it. A very average place, first girl who served us had a bit of a personality but she went home. The next one had no idea. We ordered a glass of red and another beer, she got the red... More

This restaurant is not in Europe so the food will not be the same as at home 100%. We had the steak and pasta bolognese it was delicious the plates... More

Well if you just want a drink and some western food then this place can provide that. Three of us ordered the home made pie which was nice enough but they only informed us there was no mash just before serving the food so I would have ordered something else, if I knew that at the start. They also gave... More
