The warmest reception available in Chumphon
Next to the Suda, Soi Bangkok Bank, Chumphon
As you approach the Suda you may notice what looks like a garage with a hand-made sign advertising rooms to let within.
You'll probably have to walk in and shout 'Hello!' a couple times to get the attention of the family that lives and works there, and you'll then get the warmest reception available in Chumphon. They have two sparse but acceptable fan rooms in the back, with shared bath and showers, and a back entrance so you won't have to walk through the house as you come and go. They clearly are trying to catch overflow from the Suda to make a few extra baht, but it's still a fun place to stay. They make their living off tea and coffee, so be fore-warned: three times a week from 08:00 to 12:00 they roast coffee out back in a big steel vat using an automated stirring mechanism that makes a bit of noise.
