Have just stayed at the Elephant and Castle for six nights and was not disappointed. I was greeted by John, the perfect host. He provides all the recommendations you need about beaches , places to eat, elephant trekking etc. and all where great. John and Lan make you feel at home and the place has a chilled and happy vibe....

Without a doubt the only place I choose to stay in ko Chang. John and Lan make you feel so at home. Come and go as you please. Always available for a chat and advice about the island. Can't recommend the place enough. Their dogs add to the homely vibe. Does a mean feed on request. Arrived three weeks early...

Great bungalows away from the road. John, the host, is a great source of local information and super nice to have a chat with. Rooms are clean and tranquil. Within walking distance of some nice restaurants on the beach, like Lay Lay's. We will definitely be going back to Elephant and Castle when we return to wonderful Koh Chang. This...

Firstly my apologies for such a late review! I fell in love with koh chang around 10 years ago and have stayed at John and Lans place on a number of occasions. They originally used to be on the right side of the road and moved to a plot of land to the left side a few years ago which...

We stayed at E and C about a month ago - a belated review we've been meaning to get to. We initially booked for two nights and thought we'd check other places out once we arrived. We ended up staying 10 nights. Great place, exactly like the other reviews describe. Clean, comfortable bungalows, nice location for us (convenient to two...

We stayed with John at his Elephant and Castle for about 1.5 weeks in July 2013 during rain season.. we had a wonderful & easygoing time here. John is always helpful with an open ear, offering advice and entertainment whenever necessary - a really good host! BUT BEWARE: This is not a normal resort with all comfort, it's a bit...

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,...

...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.

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.”
