For some unknown reason, when we first arrived, I thought that this hotel was not for me but as each day passed, I came to appreciate and then love this place. When we came to leave, I was truly sad to go. It is definitely 5 star service at a 3 star price and all the staff strive to make everyone happy and their stay enjoyable.
I usually prebook tours and guides, but this time I got the hotel to book the transport and guide and was very satisfied with their prices and the tours themselves. Our guide was Sim Sophath and we were very happy with his knowledge and professionalism and I would be happy to recommend him to others. He never tried to detour via "his cousins place" etc or drop in to shops for the usual kickbacks .
The pool at the hotel is great, the restaurant breakfast appeared limited but was in fact perfectly adequate with an egg station and a reasonable variety of items you could want.
For anyone with problems getting around, be aware that the restaurant is up a reasonably steep flight of stairs. I am sure, however, that if you could not manage the stairs, the staff would be happy to make other arrangements for you for breakfast or other meals.
Would I return and would I recommend it to others? - yes definitely!
