Stayed with family and enjoyed adjoining rooms with internal door for less than SGD$79/night. The service was impeccable, and we were greatly impressed by the friendliness and warmth of the local staff. The pool is clean and inviting, and provides a respite from the heat after a hard day's trekking around the temples.
The hotel provides a free tuk tuk to town any time, and a return is only US$2.
The staff are so gracious and always grateful for any compliments; they spoke very good English and understood all our requests and requirements. The massages are more Thai / Cambodian style (quite firm or hard) but we thought they were excellent value - USD$10 for a full hour in your own room and no tip was expected.
Breakfast is slightly limited, in that there is a choice of either noodles + egg, or a "western" choice of eggs/ bacon / ham / tomato. Other options are available in town for US $4-$6 a person. Lunch / dinner by the pool is much better and about the same price as in town.
The hotel is about 1km out of the the town centre, which other reviewers have noted seems far - though this didn't worry us, as it does provide a place of quiet. Access is by the High School Road which is a dirt road that was being dug up for major pipeworks when we were there, and was a complete mudbath when it rained - though you are protected in the tuk tuk.
One point to note - there was a temple two houses down the road which had a major festival and had loud music and speeches blaring from loudspeakers for almost two days, so you may want to enquire of the hotel when booking to ensure there are no disruptions during your intended stay.
