Excellent find in Isaan”

Personal service, swimming pools, food and drinks

A really lucky find. I was wanting to stay near Khon Kaen with my girlfriend. Found this place by accident. Rooms are fairly basic but have everything required and are clean. The swimming pools are excellent, both a full size pool for real swimming connected to a "beach" pool that is great for kids. The hotel is owned by Howard a Brit who has lived in Thailand 23 years. A very pleasant and helpful guy. Menu is both Thai and English, including curries! Good English breakfast available. Scooters and car available for rent. The area is fairly basic but if you want a relaxing break I highly recommend Castle Howchow

Traveling Round Thailand”

Friendly Staff, Great Swimming Pool, Nice Rooms

During my travels around Thailand this year we stopped in Castle Howchow. I must say that we were very impressed with the swimming pool. My 6 year old daughter was learning to swim and the gentle slope of the massive swimming pool was a great confidence booster for her. The rooms were good but one of the highlights for me was the friendliness of the owner and staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was fantastic. As you can guess from my review I will be going back there again when I'm in that area of Thailand.

Staff, friendliness,cleanliness

We stayed at castle howchow for 10 days. It was absolutely great and very under rated. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. They went over and above to make us feel so welcome. We ate in the restaurant and had breakfast every morning and the food was good value for money. The accommodation, grounds and swimming pool were spotlessly clean and well cared for. The owner and his wife went all out to do everything they could to make us feel welcome, even organising a BBQ for us on our final night. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Off the beaten track”

This resort ( a common Thai phrase for non-hotel style accommodation) is a smallish town in the north east. We had been having hot weather and wanted a freshening up, so a place with a pool was essential . Castle Howchow has a large restful pool yet offers lanes for those who want to swim laps. The cabins were very nice with a comfortable bed.

Great relaxation”

Pool food hospitality

There are probably better places than this but not at this price. The swimming pool has to be the best feature and is very large. There are two parts the more standard type pool which when we were there was empty so was good for straightforward swimming and the other part which was good for just relaxing and although I don’t have young children this would be ideal for them. I have seen it mentioned that there are some tiles missing in the pool which leaves sharp edges. There were when I was there but I would say it was a lot less dangerous than many hotels and other places in Thailand. The resort isn’t too badly maintained compared to others I’ve seen. It could be better but not too bad as far as I could see. The chalet was not large but quite adequate and comfortable with aircon and a ceiling fan. It was fairly quiet when we were there so I don’t know what it’s like if it gets busy. The owners Howard and his wife seem to be there a lot and Howard in particular is keen to show his hospitality. There are a lot of westerners there which I normally try to avoid but it didn’t worry me here. The food is very good and varied with something for everyone. It’s a fair way from Khon Kaen city and there doesn’t seem to be very much in the way of attractions in the area but then it’s not really a tourist area. I live in Thailand for much of the time so this was just a place for me and my girlfriend to get away for a couple of days and in that respect it was perfect. I’ll certainly go back again

Brand new bathrooms and air con units in all rooms, so this should keep mostly everyone happy. Pretty much had the pool to ourself. For those looking at reviews of castle howchow maybe start with this one as the rooms are being done now so the owner is making a effort.

Best in the area”

Kranuan is not a place many people eat to visit, in the wilderness a thirds of the way from cities Khon Kaen and Udonthani. This is the best you will find in the area by a mile, most rooms you find in this area are incredibly basic with zero facilities. If you need to stay in this area ( we were visiting my Thai wife family ) this is the only place other than the cities where you will get Western standards

The Pool, The Room, The grounds

Have stayed here before, my partners family live not too far from here. Totally amazing place in the middle of nowhere, half way between Udonthani & Khon Kaen in a very rural location. You dont expect to find an artificial beach and super pool. Nice bungalows set in beautiful gardens. This is easily the best place to stay in the area ( there is little competition ). Hard to find fault, for the money its very good value.

Impressive”

Pool. Location. Gardens

I had a very pleasant stay at the resort. It has a great pool, which is also available for use by locals for a small fee. This is great for Esan kids that would normally not get the chance to experience or play in such an enviroment. My Deluxe chalet was nice. The bathroom was a bit dated and not much space to put my stuff. But to be fair, they are now in the process of updating many of the chalets. Breakfast was included in my room rate (and was good) but there was some confusion amongst the staff i.e. they expected me to pay each day. The gardens are beautiful. A great place to stay for anybody visiting Kranuan or the nearby villages.

We ate in the restaurant on two of the nights the food was fantastic reasonably priced and really good. Yes the place looks a little tired now but look beyond that you’re in the middle of rural Thailand. The staff really were fantastic nothing was too difficult and they were always available to help. We will definitely be back it’s such fantastic value.
