This hotel is clean, nothing extaordinary for one night stay. Not easy to find and a bit far from the center. I liked the gardens. In Surin hotel choice is limited anyway. Where is the staff ? looks like ghostly

Surin is pretty dry right now, but when we got to the White Elephant Resort everything was so green and beautiful. Friendly check in. Our room was really nice, very clean and tidy. Nice view of the garden, as do all the rooms. Would definitely stay there again. Just some advice, maybe they should stop advertising they have a pool... More

It is a privilege to see someone dream at play here. The gardens were absolutely wonderful with hidden reflective corners all over. The breakfast room featured hand carved wooden seats and roman columns. It is an artists eye and heart in every feature. These was the cheapest place I stayed in Thailand. I paid up to 8 times the price... More

The owners should take off the photos of the pool because there is no pool! After searching around for this place for an hour (the owner kindly picked us up from the train station), we went there to discover that they had removed the pool, so we left, disappointed.

Excellent resort for the price. Very clean room. Comfy bed, fridge, flatscreen TV great for watching movies on your USB stick. Perfect relaxed venue to chill for a day before heading of to Cambodia on my bike. Would definitely stay again when passing through Surin.

"Resort" offers good clean accommodation very cheap $12 p/n. No English spoken - but there is some English TV! Not close to shopping centres but some local shops. Need own transport staying here! Good size indoor pool - but smelt very chlorinated!
