I have stayed at Elephants End now on 3 different occasions, visiting friends in the area by myself, with my partner and with friends.
Its very friendly, good value, beautiful rooms very nicely decorated and the rooms at the front have a balcony with lovely seaviews.
The beach is so close as its across the road, theres a super beach bar called 'Sa Ing' where the food, drinks and service is great.
Also a couple of doors up is 'The Irish Embassy' likewise a super place to visit with lots to offer and all so handy from the guest house.
For guests wanting travel advise, motorbikes etc, they have it all here and also a little cafe on the ground floor.
Perfect, just book it !
