Reviewed 25 December 2010

We (a family of five) spent three nights. A wonderful time - nice grounds, excellent pool, diverse menu that deivered, complimentary massage, complimentary local transport, free wi-fi, and an exceptionally attentive staff. Very good value for money.

Everything about my stay at this hotel was perfect, the staff, the food, the hospitality, the value, the rooms, everything. Everything you could need had been thought about and the food that the restaurant produced was the best food I had on my three week trip to Cambodia.

A new up-and-comer on the Battambang scene, The Sanctuary is an oasis of calm a mere two minutes drive from the centre of Battambang. A handful of individual, private, beautifully-furnished villas are set around a pool, each will all the mod cons you could want. When we were there the hotel had only been open a few days, but it felt like it had been functioning, and functioning well, for ages.

We were mercifully picked up by the hotel driver from the scrummage that awaits once you disembark the Phnom Penh bus and were met at the Sanctuary by the manager, Dara, who couldn't have been more helpful and efficient. He recommended some outings, sorted us our with transport and an itinerary, and we were on our way.

It was almost a shame to go into Battambang seeing the hotel was of such quality. Added bonuses include free wi-fi, a free half-hour foot massage, free transport in and out of town, great breakfasts with lots of choice, and what looked to be a granite model of a penis by the pool. Serious quality, seriously affordable. You shouldn't look anywhere else (unless it's full, which is very likely).

I echo all the other positive reviews, really great place. Though at the top-end price-wise, you get a lot for your money. As they explain in detail on their website, you get lots of complimentary things: an hour of massage, bikes, pickup, drive in to town, tea and fruit platter, DVDs, wifi, all-you-can-eat breakfast... Nicest place I've stayed at in Cambodia. Excellent service too.

We stayed at the Sanctuary for 2 wonderful nights. It truly is a lovely place, the manager and staff are very helpful, the rooms wonderfully furnished and the pool/gardens actually are like they look in the photos. Plus we had the benefit of a complementary massage. Being a bit out of town it is also very peaceful.

Had a really enjoyable stay at The Sanctuary. The rooms are very large with large clean bathrooms. The beds are massive. It is located slightly out of the town center but this is no problem pick up service via hotel supplied mobile phone. The owner/ Manager was very helpful. It has a wonderful onsite restaurant and pool.

The Sanctuary has new large modern rooms with large clean bathrooms. It is located slightly out of the town center but this is no problem as they have bicycles and a pick up service. It has a wonderful onsite restaurant and pool. The hotel Manager and the jeep driver made our stay delightful. If you are going to Battambang you have to stay at The Sanctuary, I could not recommend any place more.
