Mr. House is simply the best! Several weeks back I decided to accompany a friend while they made a visit back home in Pak Khat, Thailand (just east of Nong Khai along the Mekong River). I was worried because Pak Khat is quite rural and I figured my choices for my own accommodations would be severely limited; or, I would have to stay in Nong Khai (and commute daily - Ugh!). Luckily! I found Mr. House. A glorious oasis in a desert.
If you have to be in Pak Khat (or nearby); or, just want to get away from the busy city, and looking for a clean, comfortable room where the staff is exceptionally friendly, the food is great, the wi-fi excellent, the pool crystal clear and inviting, the grounds well kept, bar well stocked, and the spend is more than fair, you need to book Mr. House! No exceptions!
Claudio is the proprietor, a friendly, honest, trustworthy accommodating individual who knows what excellent customer service looks like. Not only is he an excellent host but Italian chef as well. Who would have thought that in Pak Khat you would find authentic Italian cuisine as good as you would find at any café in Florence. Claudio actually invested in a stone enclave pizza oven where the pizzas, calzones, etc. exit in perfect Italian style, aroma and taste. I have been all over S.E. Asia and have eaten at many restaurants claiming to serve “Mexican”, “Italian”, “French”, or whatever non-local cuisine claimed. My experience is that they try, but just don’t quite get there. Here, Mr. House not only “gets it”; but, close your eyes, employ your taste buds and, “Perfezionare!” you are in Italy. Again! All of this in Pak Khat, Thailand! Five Stars all the way!
I am not the type of person who cares to write up reviews like this because I do enough writing for my work and it is exhausting. But I do get motivated when I experience something beyond normally good. Mr. House goes well beyond normally good and I am happy to write to let you know.
