Prangtong Mansion is something of a curious spot, more school or municipal building than hotel, and with no English sign outside we walked past it twice without noticing.
(There is a large yellow sign in Thai though.) The two-storey white building houses several large and very well maintained rooms. Each room has TV and attached bathrooms are clean. Fan or air-con choices are available. Helpful staff but not surprisingly no English and though lacking in any charm if you are looking for a cheap, clean and comfortable place to stay in Pua, this is a good option. It’s located on the old town’s main street – what used to be Route 1080 – so it's reached by heading down the lane opposite the T-junction with Route 1081 and taking a left at the tiny roundabout. Continue along here for some 300 metres, past the 7-eleven and Government Savings Bank and the building’s on the left up a gravel driveway with a large open grassy area out front. On the corner of the driveway is an open-air, bamboo coffee stall.
