We came to this place without booking and was ripped off; if you book via Agoda then you got like $27/night but when we came here they asked us for 2100 baht = $60. We arrived late and it was dark and with 2 kids wasted so couldn't make another choice. It's ok place, big swimming pool but it's in... More

We stayed at Castle Howchow in December and it was fabulous. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and was very comfortableThe staff were amazing, helpful, courteous and couldn't do enough for us. We had a great breakfast every morning and ate in the restaurant at night which certainly didn't disappoint. On our last night there the owner Howard, his wife and... More

Really good for the price with very helpful staff and lots of fun for the kids. We arrived at 1am after a horrific 12 hour (should take 6.5) drive from Bangkok. In the middle of the night the staff efficiently fixed our rooms and the next morning we had the choice between Continental- or British breakfast. Not the Hilton, but... More

The pool is great, accommodation clean and welcoming, service absolutely excellent. We stayed here for a few nights on a trip over from Laos with a trip to the zoo planned. It was a good choice and the kids loved it.

I left the Wishing Tree hotel because there was nothing to do at the hotel. This hotel was recommended to me and so hired a taxi which took about 1 &1/2 hours to get there. Do not be fooled by the name. It is nowhere near the beach,it is in the middle of the country. This hotel has the potential... More

Had a good time at Howchow together with my wife. Finding such a great pool so "far from anything" was absolutely worth the price. Con: We visited friends so we did not eat at the restaurant, but we noticed that breakfast serving took a long time

Recently returned from my fifth stay at this beautiful family run resort. The chalets/bungalows were being refurbished whilst we were there, and we were pleased with the lack of disruption this caused us.

Have stayed here many times and have always had a nice time, if it wasnt so far from us, we would stay more often. Food is consistently good and wine and beer very reasonable.
