Let me start off by saying this is our 3rd time staying long term at the Elephant & Castle Bungalows. We usually come for a few weeks each visit and stay at this small piece of paradise. You may ask why, and it is because of the warm relationship we have built with cantankerous John and his lovely better half... More

I stayed at Elephant and Castle a while back and felt badly that I never wrote a review. I always meant to because I have great memories of the place. The owner, John, is a real character.

When we arrived there were red ants in the bathroom and in the room. John was at first very friendly, but when we spoke about the cleanliness and ants/red ants he appeared to get a bit annoyed. We had to clean the surfaces ourselves as there were small ants on the fridge and in the kettle. Overall, not great

This is a lovely and peaceful place you’ll love. There’re only six bungalows, so it is very personal, private and quiet. And there is John. He is awesome, relax, happy and very welcoming. He makes everything easy and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at his place for 4 nights, eating his great (English) breakfast and having nice talks. We rent... 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.”
