We spent only one night here, which was a pity, as we would have gladly spent longer had we known rooms were available. As it turned out, we booked Le Meridien for 6 nights, and emailed the Sojourn for the last night as all the other hotels on our short list were full.
We had initially entered 2 adults and 2 children on the hotel's booking site, and the search showed no available rooms. However, when we emailed the hotel directly, we found that rooms WERE available, and we just had to pay an extra supplement for the kids!
We stayed in a Temple villa, and the kids were fascinated by the outdoor shower. There is a king sized bed in the room, and a single bed by the window. The room itself was spacious and comfortable enough, but the thin curtains did not keep out the heat or light very well, and we had to turn the aircon on at high speed during the heat of midday. We were also woken up early as the whole room became very bright when the sun rose. Just bring along an eye mask if you intend to sleep in.
Staff were uniformly friendly, and eager to please. They also made an effort to remember the names of the kids even though we stayed only for 1 night.
Breakfast was wonderful, and made fresh when ordered. We especially liked the fruit shakes and Khmer porridge.
The whole compound was pretty small, and we had to constantly make sure the kids didn't inadvertantly run out onto the driveway as it was quite near the restaurant,
The hotel is about 15min by car from town, so if nightlife and restaurants are what you are looking for, stay elsewhere. However, if you like peace and quiet in a natural setting, this fits the bill. A short stroll outside the hotel will bring you through a little village, and you can see the farmers at work, or children at play in their family compounds. Quite a refreshing change from large hotels.
Next time, we will split our stay between here, and another hotel closer to town.
