We spent three nights in this fantastic hotel towards the end of November. We are on a three month trip around SE Asia and so turned up late in the evening with backpacks after a long and miserable bus journey into Cambodia from Bangkok. On our journey, we had befriended a younger backpacker who was a bit concerned about wandering alone around Siem Reap and so he came with us to the hotel to see if he could get a taxi from there to the hostel he had booked. We were greeted with cold towels and fresh fruit juice on arrival and felt instantly welcomed by the staff. The backpacker we had picked up on our journey was explaining that he wasn't planning on staying there and so shouldn't have the towel or fruit juice (he thought they were offering them to him as they thought he was also a guest), but they insisted.
A member of staff showed us to our room, which was spacious and clean. The highlight (especially as we felt pretty dirty after our long journey!) was the bathroom - spacious and clean and with a huge shower and bath. There were petals in the sink and the lady apologised that they had started to curl but they had expected us earlier in the day - it still looked beautiful to us and we felt instantly relaxed and at home.
It was a great place from which to explore Angkor Wat - the hotel can organise this for you, even at short notice (we booked an English speaking guide and tuk tuk at 10pm for the following day) and is about 10-15 minutes from central Siem Reap by tuk tuk. The hotel provides a free service between the hotel and Siem Reap and give you a mobile phone so that you can ring them when you want to be collected (up until about midnight). We used this every night and it worked just fine.
We ate in the restaurant on our first evening and the food was very good.
The pool and its setting are stunning - a lovely place to relax in the afternoon after exploring the temples.
The staff were fantastic - couldn't do enough for you but not overbearing. We would definitely stay here again.
