I was very happy with the room i was given as it was with a balcony and views on a temple, being quite high up the view was great. The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom adequate. The only problems were privacy as the room was just below the jaccuzzi which was dirty when i arrived...but also the comings and goings of people on their way to the roof top!I had a terrible experience in another guesthouse, truly appalling so to me the difference makes my perception/opinion a bit biased. It was a palace compared to the other one... Saying that i do agree with few reviews that i didn't feel comfortable (and i am french!).with the staff in general and to me they are working the 'Khmer' way as i call it....:( I had health problems while there and while the manageress addressed the issue efficiently she wasn't that sympathetic. Staff at the bar, 2 girls are not up to scratch and not pleasant at all. The breakfast was very expensive considering.. I had to come back to PP few weeks later, they kept my suitcase when i went down to the coast which was kind but i had booked the same room and got a very different one on my return. When i arrived after 12 30 am i was told that the person in my room hadn't checked out yet and they didn't know if he was leaving or not so to go for a walk and come back later!!!! The last room i was given was right at the top with steps which frankly were dangerous. The next morning i didn't have the strength to go down for breakfast so had to make do with an horrid lipton tea from the mini bar (again over priced). I got charged when i left for a couple of breakfasts non justified as i was paying by the day... I realize this is a mixed review, all in all i was just very lucky to have the corner room for most of my stay but as i said apart from the cleaning ladies and a couple of other staff i wasn't impressed by the atmosphere, i just felt uncomfortable...The bar staff was very unfriendly, was dreading to go down for my coffee in the morning (no telephone in the room). I also felt a slight resentment from management that i didn't eat in the restaurant! Sorry i'm in Cambodia so Khmer food!
Bottom line it is slightly overpriced mostly on the breakfast and if i was to ever go back to PP i probably wouldn't want to stay there... To finish on a positive note it is a great location.
