Probably wondered why you tooted Paul, I've never heard a horn in Thailand used in the same situation that they are in the UK, only ever heard them used by vehicles to warn bicycle riders, ice cream samlors and bikes with no lights that a great big 100 ton lorry is trying to pass them at 200kph 8)

You are so right LOL
When everybody drives so unbelievably bad - how will they ever be able to tell when they see bad driving - coz it is quite normal to them.

However this is not a post about driving standards its about accomodation (I think) so I will not curse the driving any more on this post.

Paul, for all the time you've been in LOS, you're still not thinking like a Thai. Just use the sidewalk :D

Read on Old Codger's website that Irish Clock rooms are priced at 800B/nite. He joins everyone in giving the place a big thumbs up. It's on my must visit list for next trip. Looking forward to your review after your stay LA.

I guess that threw a spanner in the works, sounds like we are all talking about different entities (unless of course pop pop is really the old codger), never mind, the one I was on about is back by the looks of things:

That hotel has been for sale for quite some time. I think it looks more like a house/guest house rather than a hotel. But I guess that hotel sounds better LOL! :lol:

Must be awfully small rooms - 11 renting rooms a kitchen and two smaller rooms too - wow !

More thai style than what us westerners are used to (or students rooms)

Hotel certainly sounds better than guesthouse.Guesthouse makes me think of Margate and dark,damp corridors with peeling flock wallpaper.Getting all nostalgic. :)

stayed at irish clock saturday, and it was all i expected. very comfortable bed, full well stocked mini bar, hot water maker w/coffee/tea available. stayed in regular room as opposed to larger room. if floor plan is same upstairs then he has 4 larger and 4 standard rooms. the larger rooms having more counter area and room enough for comfy chair with ottoman. largerr ooms are on front of building w/ small balconies if wanting to watch daily life drive by. i'm guessing they are guest friendly, as there is a side door at front of building for entering hotel part as oposed to walking thru restaurant/bar area. rooms are well appointed and shower fixture 1st rate. a pleasant experience. has in room safe, cable tv w/HBO and cinamax movies, nice towels, 2 sets of 3 each (face, hand, body), and some soft slippers for your walking comfort. the room i stayed in had a huge balcony, the roof over kitchen downstairs, with some plants, over looking, well, we'll just say facing robinson area or town, actually overlooks the back of building with is a large cemented walled area. actually quite large with a thia hut looking a bit out of place. rooms are 850, i think for all, 1st come 1st serve for larger rooms. the one room i took pic of had dvd player, not sure if comes with room or now, but our room didn't have one.

have some pics at link below. took couple pics of larger room also, bear in mind they were in the process of cleaning that room and the door was open so i took a few to give you an idea of different size. the one pic of regular room that is dark, you can see balcony we had thru glass doors.

Yes Sean,not a place to visit now but many moons ago a treat.Penny arcade on the front and those machines with a small crane inside that never quite managed to grab the prize.Just down the coast at Ramsgate they had a large concrete pool where we all went crab fishing with cotton and mussel for bait.

I think the Old codger (unless I am wrong which I often am) is an american english teacher from my village! 8) Somehow I just got on his mailing list, anyways. Doc you out there :?:

That is a very important part if you are a "Cheap Charlie" as myself, bt as you brought it up and the rest of the place sounds so good please rate the breakfast. Most places that have talked about breakfast in Udon have really downgraded the breakfast.

I do have one question as it relates to soundproofing. Do you get the noise from below into the rooms or is it insulated pretty well?

By the way your reviews have been very informative!!!!!!!!!!
