FIrst point....the BAMBU Hotel should be in the HOTEL section of TA not under B&Bs.
We received a warm welcome from the hotel Manager and the Owner upon our arrival and gladly accepted an upgrade to a suite room. The four suite rooms are located in the main building, ours overlooked the lovely bar/restaurant and pool area...other rooms are pleasantly located in separate two storey buildings the other side of the pool. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated with the added bonus of hammocks on the deck. Bliss!! However, the shower was virtually uncontrolable and, most unusually, no tea/coffee making facilities in the room ???
All the hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The included breakfast (buffet style when warranted by sufficient numbers or a la carte when not) was adequate but not overly exciting.....other meals were well prepared and nicely served at the bar/pool side or in the covered dining room nearby.
Having inspected other recently opened hotel accommodation of a similar standard in Battambang we got the feeling that the Bambu is a bit over priced. Time will tell as more tourists hopefully make it to Battambang which has a lot to offer.
Overall we had a thoroughly pleasant and comfortable five nights in delightful surroundings.
