A remarkable resort is this one! It’s out there! Castle Howchow Beach Resort, in the midst of a Country town. Star rating to me is 4 plus. It is a great alternative to the hotels in Khon Kaen where hotels are set amongst huge traffic jams and are overpriced. I guess the drive here from Khon Kaen is around 50...

The Castle HowChow is a Resort in Kranuan. Different Bungalows, a big Swimming pool ( connected in two parts ), nice garden area, Tropical garden etc. make this Resort so beautiful. Only 50 meters from the main road is this Resort very quite. The kitchen is also good and open from 08.00 - 22.00. A nice place for couples, Family...

my first thought was that it is expensive for such small poky rooms but when you consider the facilities here it's okay. amazing swimming and beautiful, extensive gardens. Despite being nowhere near a beach, there is a sandy area on one side of the pool which gives that beachy feel. The food is basic but good. Howard, the owner, is...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

“For the money all the rooms look good round the swimming pool with a bar which is open in the evenings until about 2 am. but we had no normal furniture or shelves to put our clothes on. I cannot comment for other rooms because we did not see inside any of them. There were hardly any other tourists staying there at the time we were there and I believe that this was the tourist season. Maybe it is too hot for tourists but quite a few locals do pay to use the swimming pool at the weekends. It is definately a large pool and the locals like it because \I don't think there is another one in the area.”
