I would certainly recommend a stay here. I stayed three nights, one night in a double room and two nights in a single. The only reason for this was that they didn't have the single available for all three nights. Both rooms were imaculate and well presented with a TV, DVD player, good quality aircon and ceiling fans and fridge to keep you water (or beers) cool. The only comment I would make are that the bathrooms are getting tired and the first one had some mould that could easily be removed with a little bit of effort. There's a terrace at the mid level and downstairs a bar/resturant with pool table and an enormous DVD library. The food is good, not amazing but the prices match well and you can fill up for $2.50. Try the fresh spring rolls. The menu is balanced with Asian and Weastern favourites. The staff are extreamly pleasant, welcoming and helpful. A real joy.
My two negative but constructive comments? Do check with the tuk tuk driver exactly where he will take you and how much it will cost, even if you have arranged this with the guesthouse. The guys are nice but you pay them directly and of course they want to get as many bucks out of you as possible. There was some confusion on my trip to the temples that was a bit embarrassing. I paid $20 for a night bus to Sihanoukville through the guesthouse. This is too much and I can only presume 50% commission to Rosy. As the guesthouse is predominantly patronised by travellers (nice ones!), the commission should be a lot less.
The best bit? They arranged a tuk tuk driver to meet me at the bus station and he waited for one and a half hours for my delayed bus. That's worth a tip isn't it.
