Had the fortune to stay at this small hotel recently on a long weekend in Phnom Penh.
Did the usual research on the internet and looked at fellow travelers reviews and decided i wanted to try something with a little style and not many guests, which The Governors House was was perfect.
Booked a landmark room which was more than adequate only surprise was the bathrub with no shower....yes in this day & age, most hotels have shower and no tub, here was the tub with only hand held shower... the tub was very large and water pressure low, so took a long time to get enough water in the tub to be able to wash yourself....but it was a pleasant change just to have a soak!.
Room had all the essentials, but no hanging space in the wardrobe, only shelves. Mini bar, tea & coffee, safe, TV, wifi, phone, Good A/C and good bathroom amenities with all you would expect in the big 5 star hotels.
The hotel is relarively new and all the staff are willing to chat, take care of you and i found them all very pleasant.
The collection of art and furnitue throughout the hotel shows someone has take great care in selecting each piece, i spent some time exploring each piece of each floor.
Breakfast was suppplied each morning which was more than adequate with various choices. Also expeirenced dinner one night and the food & wine was very good quality and great flavor.
The hotel is a little bit further away from the main palace and sites, but for a $3 tuk tuk ride and 15 mins you were in the centre of it all.
Overall would recommend and would go back...not so sure i want to go back to Phnom Penh!
