I've stayed at the Elephant and castle several times over the last 5 years and have always found the rooms clean and well maintained the food superb. Above all else John and Lan are excellent hosts and always happy to help

The Elephant and Castle is by far the best place to stay on Ko Chang! The bungalows are great and really good value, the beach is beautiful and John and Lan are wonderful hosts offering the best advice on what the island has to offer. If you're going to Ko Chang, go here.

These bungalows are great...it is an inexpensive place located in a good location on white sand beach area and away from the main road so they are quiet. The bungalows are comfortable and clean (cleanest bathrooms anywhere), the dogs are friendly, and the owner, John, is a really awesome guy. He gives great advise on where to eat and party,... More

...for the two days and nights I spent at your place. Very memorable days (and nights) they were indeed. You are the best hosts a traveller can wish for, the bungalow was simple but nice and clean, the bacon and eggs very tasty and your coffee to die for. And many many thanks for taking me to the supermarkets and... More

The bungalows are very clean and away from the main road. John makes the best bacon and eggs breakfast and gives very useful advises on the island. Perfect for couples and families. Really close to the best beach (quiet and beautiful) of Ko Chang.

( April 2013 ) After travelling around southern thailand we made our way to Koh Chang. After all the hussle and bussle of bangkok and phuket it was like travelling back in time as soon as we stepped off the ferry. From being recommended and contacting John via facebook, to arranging are Thai wedding ceremony, John and Lan were fantastic... More

Spent the month of March 2013 at the Elephant & Castle and it is without doubt still the place to be on Koh Chang. The site has matured since I was last there and looks even better, can't say the same about John though, and Lan has put in a new concrete driveway. Stayed in one of the top bungalows... More

Just returned to the chilly Highlands after a wonderful few weeks at the elephant and castle. Koh Chang is a lovely friendly island off the coast of Trat. Half of the island is uncommercialised and the other half is a low key easy going mix of pubs, bars and restaurants with amazing low prices and excellent food. The elephant and... More

Me and my partner checked in to the Elephant & Castle for a week in April and we found it to be homely, welcoming and peaceful. The hospitality of John and his wife Lan was second to none, and they made us feel like part of the crew as soon as we arrived. Indeed, as soon as we set foot... More

This place is a real find. Clean bungalows with hammocks and balconies. Jungle setting away from the road side. Only 5 mins drive to the beach which means you're close to the action but far enough to be out the hustle and bustle. Fresh fruit off the trees. Dogs to pet and protect you. Plenty of tea on tap. But... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on a peaceful hillside, in beautiful gardens and backing onto the National Park of Koh Chang, which is virgin jungle. Bungalows have sea views, King size double bed, free Wi Fi, TV, shower/toilet/wet room, large wardrobe, fridge, tea/coffee making facility. 5 bungalows have Air con, 1 is fan only. The bungalows are kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast is available (extra charge). Situated just outside the busy main resort of White Sands & opposite Tesco Lotus which is handy for shopping but we are out of site. By taxi or motorbike we are with minutes of beaches, waterfalls, shops & restaurants. We can arrange other trips for you like elephant trekking, scuba diving, jungle trekking, Thai cookery or boat trips. The vibe on Koh Chang & at Elephant & Castle is one of relaxation. We can give you that as well as the personal touch. ... more   less

“I liked the higher bungalow but this may be simply because this was the one we had and I loved the view looking down "The Slope". However some of the others were sunnier in the late afternoon but really don't think you could go wrong with any.”
