This was our second visit to Siem Reap and Journeys Within. My partner and I like to book our holidays independently, but having stayed at JW before and experienced a wonderful stay, we decided to ask Andrea to plan our second visit to Cambodia, and we weren't disappointed. We stayed at JW for 6 nights. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely sized balcony. I can't say enough about the fantastic staff and the wonderful service that they provide. Although there were building works going on during our stay, it didn't impact on our enjoyment at all - we were happy that JW were able to expand in order to allow even more people to stay there in the future. Breakfast was pre-ordered the night before and served inside or out (depending on the weather) - always cooked to perfection. We occasionally had lunch there which was also lovely. One small point - proper 'English' tea bags would have made breakfast complete, but it's not even worth complaining about. We will bring our own next time!! We had pre-booked our tuk tuk driver and guide before the trip - they were always punctual, unfailingly polite, informative and friendly when on our trips. We were lucky enough to spend an afternoon at Journeys Within Our Community nextdoor to the hotel to help out at an English class for adults. We were so impressed with the work that Brandon and Andrea do for the local community and how it impacts on their life chances. Siem Reap is a truly magnificent place and we can't wait to go back to JW soon (August 2013 to be exact!) What stood out for us the most was the freindly welcome we received every time we returned from an outing - it sounds cliched but we honestly felt as though we were returning home every night, such was the warmth and kindness of all the staff. Do not hesitate to stay here when you are in town! You will have an amazing time. Guaranteed!
